Quite unrelated, but since table saw safety is connected to this product, you guys have GOT to see Jonathan Katz-Moses' video on YouTube showing how a Sawstop works. It is absolutely amazing.

People have put some plans out there for it. Id imagine if you find the rubber pads it will be similar but not sure how it will hold up over time with the moving parts the gripper has to adjust for various cuts.

Agreed, even if we replaced the entire unit with a new 3D print one would come out on top. The experience may not be the exact same though.

Depending on what you print it out of it will hold up better than the original! I actually didnt even think to print my own, going to start now, message me in a couple days if you want to know how it works.

I have two Grippers that don't see much use. They are indispensable for some cuts, but I feel much safer using Matthias Wandel's two stick method for the majority of my table saw work. I do think the Gripper would be a perfect companion to a Sawstop, but that will need to wait for me.

I agree, mainly use it for small pieces. Most of my 2x4 rips or plywood sheet cuts, which is probably 80% of what i do, I just use push sticks.

Its definitely worth having at least 1 but not something i use every cut.

Geez they have gotten expensive. I bought one maybe 15 years ago for a great deal less, but haven't found any use for it.

Maybe the expensive ones are more useful.

Been using my 3D printed Grippers for a couple years. No problems and work almost identical to the MicrJig version. In fact, I sold my two MicroJig Grippers after I found that the 3D printed ones worked just as well.

Tempted to load up on a couple more dovetail clamps but that $150 target is a bit rich.

What's the minimum quality 3d printer you'd recommend for this?

Did anyone get one of these and not feel immediately ripped off by paying wayyyyy too much for a cheap piece of plastic?

I have giant hands, (like "Buster's Military Hand" from "Arrested Development" TV series), and it wasnt made for my sized hands (few things are) so I expected to "make do" as usual.

I was so excited, but once I got it I was bummed. If it was $20 for the base model, and $40 for "the works" then I'd assume it was fun little gimmick.

All in all, I just ended up making my own from some Maple and Hickory scrap cut-offs (not like Tobias cut-offs lol... I need to rewatch that one day) I had laying around.

The concept is simple, and if you are a weekend woodworker, or you are new and just getting into it (like myself) then it might be fun. But wow is it overpriced. There's plenty of easy-to-make types of things like this on youtube.

(Lastly, to be honest, one of the reasons that sold me on it was that I thought I could dazzle a little black paint on it and it would match my Dewalt stuff. Lol.)

You could get away with using a Ender 3 without any problems. Ender 3 printers can be had for around $200.
