Both a blade guard and a push block for ripping, this jig has the great merit of carrying both the main stock and the offcut past the blade. Anyone who has repeatedly ripped narrow slices off stock knows the potential for kickback, burning or stock-thinning that can occur (sometimes all three at once!).
The body has two fixed side legs (1/4" and 1/2" wide) and an adjustable 1-1/8" wide center leg, all designed to straddle the blade in various configurations. The legs all have high-friction pads for good stock control and the system includes two levelling guides and a stabilizing plate to keep the main body from tipping on narrow work.
The system is specifically designed to accept shop-built fences and spacers for custom applications. For long stock, using two grippers is recommended.
An included 2-hour instructional DVD shows how to use it with table saws, routers, jointers and bandsaws.
A good solution to a major shop problem.
