Primarily used as a combination blade guard and
push block for making rip cuts on a table saw,
this versatile jig system also helps improve
safety and accuracy on a bandsaw, jointer or
On a table saw, it carries both the
main stock and the offcut past the blade, reducing
the risk of kickback, burning or a wandering cut.
Two fixed side legs (1/4" and 1/2" wide) and an
adjustable 1-1/8" wide center leg straddle the

end of the board, but won’t interfere with the
work when pushing from the middle of a long
board. The heel can also serve as a sacrificial

the mounting bolt is tightened to lock it in place.
The gravity heel kit includes two sets of
mounting hardware, two heels with a 3/4"
