There're many ways to skin a cat, but in addition to being a push block, the Grrrriper is a blade guard and by safely controlling both pieces past the blade, effectively eliminates kickbacks. So I wouldn't worry too much about removing those features from your saw, especially for cuts that they can't be used anyways...

I picked up a used Grrripper long ago and absolutely love the control, and safety, that it provides. While another actual Grrripper would be nice, I made a workable approximation by coating the bottom of a 2x4 with a thin coat of caulk and screwing a handle on top. Yep, the 2x4 gets cut away over time, but is easy enough to replace - might even skip the caulk next time as I'm not sure it's necessary.
Outside of what comes standard with most table saws and something people actually use.. I would say this is #1. I personally will not put my hands anywhere near the saw blade. I've seen so many woodworkers on YouTube getting super close and they're like "I know what I'm doing" and then also you see statistics for ER visits, I'm sure they also knew what they were doing.

Don't be an F'ing idiot. Don't be cheap. Yeah it's pricey for plastic but so is Lego yet they're both top of their game for a reason. And not that most people care but if you are smart and you vote with your wallet, this is an American company you're supporting with American engineering behind this product.

The only complaint I've EVER seen for this is the cost (it is costly) oh yeah and some stable genius complaining it's not made out of metal because you know, most push blocks are apparently made out of metal... anyways really great product and it actually allows for thinner/smaller cuts so functionality + safety + accuracy = winning!

I'm constantly surprised of the stuff camera stores sell.

I'm constantly surprised by all the expensive contraptions sold as essential woodworking accessories, from photo shops and others (looking at you, Woodcraft and Rockler).

Not sure i'd call the grrr-ripper essential but I do prefer it over push sticks, especially for longer thin stock.

Is this going to turn into one of those threads again?

Have a Grrrripper. Highly recommend if you are not into having your hand even sorta, kinda close to the blade for certain types of cuts.

Also highly recommend. Bought one, returned it thinking I didn't need it, then cut my fingers open with the saw. I have 2 rippers now lol

Talking about the product, the gravity heels are an option where you can either have a heel to catch and push the board on, or set it on top of the wood when you are further along in your cut.

https://m.media-amazon.com/images...L1500_.jpg

The 1/8th inch leg accessory takes the thinnest cut down from a 1/4 inch to an 1/8th for very fine cuts, thick edge bands, etc.

https://m.media-amazon.com/images...L1500_.jpg

Each accessory sells for ~$15 and the Grripper sells for 59 fairly reliably the past year with real big price drops on amazon.

OK deal, will probably get the 1/8th inch addition as I always find myself doing stupid fine cuts on my table saw and those are often the most dangerous.
