Deluxe pushblock

Ripping narrow strips or narrow stock can be a challenge. The GRR-Ripper pushblock, right, makes those jobs easy. With one edge riding against the rip fence, its rubber-coated feet straddle the blade to push both the keeper and cutoff pieces past the blade, while also allowing you to apply pressure against the fence.

The manufacturer offers a variety of accessories, including a leg that allows for ripping strips as narrow as 1/8" (shown right), and outriggers for steadying the pushblock when ripping workpieces narrower than the pushblock. For specialized tasks, make your own accessories and attach them using #10-32 screws that fit into threaded inserts in the sides or with 1/4"-20 hexhead bolts that slide into T-slots in the top and ends.

The $60 price tag might seem hefty, but you'll find it useful at the router table, jointer, and bandsaw as well.
