Thin-strip rippin' pushblock
Our handy support helps cut down ripping risks.
Safely rip thin strips between your tablesaw blade and rip fence with this fence-supported pushblock. The replaceable end block allows you to push the thin piece being cut completely through the cutting area, eliminating the chance of kickback.
Copy the Full-Size Handle pattern, (click the link at the bottom of the page), to mark the outline for the pushblock handle. We’ve located the handle up and out of the way so your fingers remain safely away from the blade during the cutting operation.
