Workshop Tip: Bandsaw Push Stick Waits in the Miter Slot
This simple but effective push stick stores in the bandsaw’s miter slot—out of the way yet close at hand. A small rare-earth magnet keeps it from sliding too far forward. Nearing the end of a cut, as my fingers approach the blade, I grab the protruding end of the stick and use it to finish the job. I also use it to control small workpieces safely and push cutoffs away from the blade.
