Quote from RikB :
... 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...
Thanks for verifying the "expensive-is-always-better" mindset that I find so peculiar on a "deal" website.
No doubt you think a good table saw blade should set you back at least $150, say a genuine Forrest (it's the two r's that make so costly perhaps).
But yes, there's a variety of "good" saw blades for $60 or less, with the Freud Diablo series coming to mind, as well as others.

Look, if you need this $60 piece of plastic to keep yourself safe, I'm all for it. Go for it.

And I started to watch that DIY Steve Ramsey video, but couldn't make it all the through. Big lol moment at the start on the make-your-own-pushstick bit.
As in, download the special curved template drawing in two pieces and spray glue it on plywood then cut out with jig saw, etc. To make a friggin pushstick!
God forbid you just cut a notch in one end of a (straight) piece of ripped lumber scrap that is lying around, and use that.

CONFESSION: I actually did buy a set of 5 plastic Powertec push sticks/blocks a few years back for cheap, back when Sears was self-liquidating.
And I do like/use them, especially the rubber padded ones for things like surfacing lumber on a joiner, etc.
The best bit is their color: COAST GUARD ORANGE, so I can easily spot where I left them! But I digress, and I see this gizmo is nice and bright too--so swell!

About my other needed tool upgrades.
For my table saw, I'm going to stick with my 3HP Rockwell-Delta Unisaw I bought new for $800 in 1981, to replace the two that were in my cabinet shop I sold off around then.
It's been in my 2-car garage of the last 4 houses I've owned since then, and seen on-and-off use for furniture making etc. Still runs great!

I would like to upgrade my spindle shaper though. It's an old Sears Craftsman 1/2" spindle shaper that I pimped out with 1-1/2HP motor and a drum switch for reversing.
It works ok, but makes me a little nervous running a heavy cutter on, e.g. raised panel. I'm thinking maybe one of those Shop Fox 2HP models with a 3/4" spindle.
That would run around $1000, or about what some folks sink into a fancy router and router table, lol.

Yet another "must-have accessory" for egghead woodworkers with lots of disposable income, but lacking the ability to make their own jigs, tools, and shop-use what-have-you. For this money you could get a really nice table saw blade, or countless other useful things.
But with that money, instead of buying nice table saw blade, should I melt my own metal and cast one myself?

I think these are really great, very useful but also EXTREMELY overpriced. I 100% understand R&D, they need to make their money back , especially when we deal with the likes of China that clones everything for free without the millions invested into R&D. But at the same time, I think they could charge far less and still make a killing profit wise.
100% agree

They sound nicer than a guy weirdly beating up strawmen in a sales forum.

Quote from riggedveda :
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.
If all I used it for were the table saw I might tend to agree, but I use it on my jointer and router table too.

The red natural rubber grout floats you can get cheap at lowes or hd work well on the jointer for wider boards, but for narrow ones being able to adjust the grip location over the stock makes this WAY safer on narrow boards. Same on the table saw, especially when using a stack dado.

I still make jigs using scraps but the more I use the microjig, the more I appreciate the genius of it's design. It really wasn't a hard decision to buy a second one.

Is this only goooood to have, or is it so grrrreat that I muuuust get it?
Not not a MUST have by any means. It doesn't enable you to do tasks you couldn't otherwise do without it. But it does help make certain table saw cuts without a blade guard safer.

Then you completely missed everything on making the push block, which defeats the purpose of watching it at all in terms of an alternative to buying one, like the one in this deal post.

My specialty (missing everything). Seriously, I "extrapolated" on how tedious it would likely be to watch the push block making bit based on the ridiculousness of the push stick part.

But I admit it might be helpful to folks who are somewhat new to table saw use and (rightly) concerned about safety, and are resourceful enough to make an alternative to this accessory.

In fact, due to popular consensus, I adjust my position on buying this Microjig Grr-Ripper 3D Pushblock:

If you think you need this to stay safe in your woodworking shop, you probably do. So buy it!

EVERYONE who uses a table saw should be using some type of push block and/or push stick. They're not just for beginners or amateurs - they're for literally everyone who uses a table saw. It's much safer to use them, regardless of your experience/skill level.

I agree. I've always used push sticks with a table saw. And made plenty of "accessories" as well, including sliding sleds, specialty fences with featherboards, and so on.
