First time I saw this was on Steve Ramsey's videos. But now I see he's no longer promoting them and instead has a video for how to make your own version: https://youtu.be/aEdbr9W6nRQ

Did they have a falling out?
I think he just stopped having sponsors in his video. I remember him mentioning that it was too much hassle to have them. And if a sponsorship ends the ad is still embedded into the video.

He is focused on his classes now more than YouTube.

He did say on multiple occasions that although he's not sponsored by them anymore, he still loves and used their products. I don't remember if I watched the episode where he made his own, but I do know that post-sponsorship there wasn't any bad blood.

I've never used one, but do plan on buying one eventually (or maybe making one- have to find Steve's video and maybe I'll try that.). It does seem extremely overpriced for what it is, but I've also never used it. That being said, $60 is a small price to pay for keeping your fingers.

I have one that I use pretty frequently and often wish I had a second, but was holding out for a deal. The 1/8" leg accessory is 15.99 by itself.

While I agree that microjig's prices are a bit steep, their stuff is useful and well made. Sure I could replicate lots of jigs I've bought over the years, but it's often a trade-off between time spent making jigs and time spent making the stuff the jig facilitates. So what you're buying is time, really.

Oh and fingers- this jig saves fingers.

I'm one of those egg heads and have this but i end up just reaching for basic push sticks vs adjusting to make sure i dont cut this one up lol.

True. But it's a matter of personal preference. My preference is to use scrap cutoffs as sacrificial push sticks. Bonus is they're free. It's not for everyone though.

I 100% agree it's a trade off between buying things vs building jigs.

I just watched Steve Ramsey's video that someone mentioned, and honestly.. I'm just going to make one. I'm sure it's easy enough to use the micro jig, but it's expensive and I do worry about cutting into it somehow (I've cut into my sawhorses a few times) and $60 gone.

Steve's version has a sacrificial base and cleat so you can just swap it out in about a minute WHEN you cut into it too many times (not IF, since his design is meant to be cut into). The base is just a 9 inch 2x4 with a Dado so easy to swap/ make. You also don't have to worry about lining up the blade to fit within the groove of the jig since you cut right through the 2x4 base

Again, I've never used the micro jig, but I'm strongly leaning towards throwing a substitute together in 30 mins.

Video for reference.

What's the sense in spending that much on a nice saw blade when you could by a perfectly fine circular saw with blade and a peice of plywood and BOOM you got a whole table saw...../s

This is a safety item that doesn't reinvent the wheel or anything futuristic like sawstops finger saving black magic but when you are making cuts where you hear that whisper of doubt about whether it's safe of not, this thing becomes invaluable. Do I still use a push stick over this some times? Absolutely. Is this the first thing you should buy if you're a hobbyist? No. Has this thing saved me frustration and given me peice of mind? Absolutely.

I guarentee it saved me in time alone well over its cost. I can confidently push very narrow cuts through without worrying and slowing down when my hand gets near the blade or router bit. If I ever damaged it to the point it was unusable I would gladly buy another one that day even if it wasn't on sale. I don't have have "disposable" income, but I do own a small 2 car garage shop that I make money on the side building cabinets and other things to fund my endeavors, and $60 is by far a small price to pay if it keeps my fingers safer when I'm the only one who suffers for the consequences.

Bottom line is this is a great saftey device that people call a must have for good reason, but if you think $60 will get you a "good" saw blade then you probably are operating on a budget/income from said hobby that you should prioritize other tool upgrades first.

I was thinking the same thing: since when can you buy a good saw blade for $60? Speaking of which, we need a slick deal on Forrest saw blades, preferably their ChopMaster line.

To the 2 above me, I think Diablo/Freud blades are considered "good" and in that price range. Forrest is going into "great" territory. I think plenty of respectable woodworkers use Diablo.

I do agree with everything else said.

I always forget that on Slickdeals it's not about the value something provides, but rather that absolute cost. If something is cheap to make but not cheap to buy, the folks here give it an automatic downvote.

I've no expert woodworker but solidly in the intermediate range. I still use this as my sole pushblock for all of my cuts on the table saw. It's easily adjusted, works with nearly any cut, comfortable in your hand, and the gripping material makes it really easy to apply force in all 3 directions. Even now that I have a SawStop and some of the safety perks are diminished, I still love my Gripper!

My Gripper has absolutely provided me $60 in value. Just the time saved by not having to build jigs to make weird cuts is worth it. If it's not worth it to you, feel free not to buy. But I think it's a great addition to the shop.

Maybe, but they really don't have a competitor at this point for a similar product and I doubt their sales are struggling at their current asking prices (unless they have a stubborn CEO)

That's how I feel about this item. It's a low cost item that adds some more safety. I don't see the downside.
