    M shape bridge for wood feeding on the table saw

    Hello,
    Here is my personal version of the "GRR the Ripper" push block.
    Actually, more than a push block for the table saw, it is a manual wood feeder, it does not push but grips the wood and take it through the blade, both cut and cut-off pieces.



    I have written a detailed article to explain the way I build them and provided a plan and a demonstration video.

    I copy here some extracts, but I let you read the full article.

    Plan :


    See in particular how I did the T nut slots that go at the front and back edges of the top plates :




    Have fun, and keep safe with power tools !
    Christophe
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Nice work Christophe. Safety-wise push blocks > push sticks.

    Dang... Where was this a week ago when I was making my push block! I was struggling on how to make a t- track with stuff I had laying around. I ended up screwing the middle plate in temporarily. You have inspired me to make some modifications. Thanks for the idea!
