Great Push Pads with Smart Hooks
A push pad or block is essential to working safely on the jointer or router table. For years, I’ve used inexpensive foam-backed versions that I buy online. These pads work OK, but they lose traction over time, and I lose peace of mind. Now Micro Jig has changed the game with its Grr-Rip Block. This puppy has bite. The bottom is a durable, studded rubber surface that holds strong. But for added pushing power, the block has hooks on each end that automatically lower to lip over and grab the back end of a workpiece. The hooks can be removed or retracted and locked so they won’t get in the way when jointing thin stock. An accessory blade and bit guard is available for $13. You’ll pay three times as much for these push blocks as you will for the cheaper versions, but they are well worth it.
