Review Summary

I’ve used Micro Jig’s GRR-Ripper pushblock for years—I never make a tablesaw ripcut without it. And I’m just as keen on these similar pushblocks for use on other machines, such as a jointer, bandsaw, or router table. The GRR-Rip Blocks have the same heavy plastic handle and base, plus a rubbery grip pad pocked with round nodules for a sure grab on any workpiece. I like the drop-down catches at each heel, providing a way to also hook the end of a workpiece.
These catches also lock in the “up” position when not needed. —Tested by Bob Hunter, Tools Editor
