Amazon has the Grr-Ripper 3D pushblock on sale for $47.20, not the cheapest I've seen but close. I just paid $59 last week, wish I had waited.

Not crapping on this post because lots of people love these.

But if you are looking for an alternative try a grout float from your local hardware store. There are different foams so bring some over to the lumber racks and make sure you are buying the kind that has a ton of traction. https://www.finewoodworking.com/2...work-ready

For any cuts that are too thin to use a grout float I use homemade sticks from plywood. Whenever possible I keep all the standard table saw safety gear in place (blade guard / riving knife).

No matter what option you choose, be safe and think things through so you don't get bit Smilie

That's a great, and cheap, suggestion for jointers, router tables, band saws, or table saws (only if you aren't making a through cut). But the grrriper, or home made facsimile, can handle all that and more. It is a really well thought out pusher with the huge advantage that both pieces are controlled after the cut virtually eliminating kick back (assuming your fence is true).

I picked up a used grrriper in a huge lot of tools several years ago and highly recommend it. The control and safety it provides are second to none. Everyone with a tablesaw should have one (or two) or follow one of the youtube videos or lumberjock projects and make your own.

To the guy above who complains that you need to remove the blade guard, kickback pawls and riving knife to use a grrrripper: I don't know anyone who actually uses the blade guard and kickback pawls anyways and think that since they often get in the way and disrupt visibility, that they may pose more danger than they eliminate. And everyone should always use a riving knife which doesn't get in the way of the grrrriper, at least not a decent riving knife.

Single push blocks are cheaper than the 2 pack. I would recommend getting 2 so you always have something on the material you are working with. I got these several years ago and have destroyed a few parts which you can get replacement parts for. I feel better using these but I think they are over priced for what they are. You can always make your own push block if you want to as well.

The fact that the blade guard, anti-kickback pawls, and most often the riving knife need to be removed to use these things as they were originally intended make them a non-starter for me.

And the fact that the 'gravity heels' are considered 'accessories ... you've got to be kidding!

Better you make push blocks / push sticks for 20 cents apiece.

My old saw doesn't have a blade guard or other safety features, so I like the control and safety of using the GRR-Ripper. I like that it helps control material on both sides of the blade, and taking the second or two to set up for my cut makes me think about what I'm doing. They are expensive, so if someone just wants to make their own I don't blame them. Personally I like them, so I'm ordering a second one.

Meanwhile theres woodworkers/carvers that've been doing their craft for 50 years, using modern equipment yet they still don't feel the need to spend $47 on a pushblock or if you buy two like they always push then $100 for freaking pushblocks! People are really sold on the fact that you couldn't do these things just as safe with other methods and tools you can do yourself, but rather it's so easy you can literally blindfold yourself and use it on a running blade (their commercial legit has a guy blindfolded, using it to cut wood on a moving blade).. oh and "what are you waiting for" and that X amount of people have bought it so that means it MUST be a good deal. FFS

The things people will buy, the BS koolaid people will drink..
Well I've met a lot of old woodworkers who are missing fingers, but I would never tell someone what they should and shouldn't use. To be honest I thought the GRR-Ripper sounded stupid and overpriced the first time I heard about it, but after seeing a lot of comments praising it I decided to give it a try and I don't regret it.
