MJ_GB1
by Micro Jig
£34.95

Harness the ultimate gripping power of the only pushblock with smart heel hooks that know where to grab your workpiece. For use with jointers, band saws, router tables, spindle moulders, table saws and surface planers.

  • Auto-retracting heel technology hooks the tail-end of your board
  • Patented Green GRR-RIP for extreme hold
  • 90-degree flip guide for vertical footing on band saws and router tables
  • Ergonomic handle exerts directional pressure against the fence
  • Optional mounts for Deflector/Connector shield plate for additional protection against chip debris

Smart Heel Hooks
Smart hooks grab the tail end of the board to give you complete control and confidence to finish the cut. Smart Hooks automatically drop down when you need them, and instantly retract mid-board. They can also be locked into the retracted position. There when you need them – out of the way when you don’t.

Unbelievable Gripping Power
Nothing is more unnerving than a push pad that slips and breaks down. The patented non-slip Green GRR-RIP grips like magic and lasts longer than traditional non-slip materials. The popular design is made of pods that individually compress, giving you better traction than flat push pads. The grooves allow for wood dust and debris to escape. Easily cleaned with denatured or household rubbing alcohol.

90-degree Flip Guide
Use the 90-degree Foot for veneers and resawing on the bandsaw, or for beaded face frames and other special profiles against the router table fence. No matter which way you flip it, smart hooks still fall into place. Use the GRR-RIP BLOCK in the vertical position to resaw or veneer cuts firmly against the fence to prevent bandsaw drift and ensure a straight cut from beginning to end.

      IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS

      This is a very well made piece of kit which certainly gives me added confidence when using it to hold firm against bandsaw, joiner, router table etc. However, the cost. I certainly think most people need 2 of them to operate safely. That’s £70. On the one hand, you can ask how would you measure £70 against the loss of a finger etc. On the other, you can certainly ask how the production cost (£5 maybe?) can be justified against the sales cost. I could certainly make one out of plywood and other bits which may not have the same “feature” as retractable end stops but I could make one lot with fixed stops down and another with no stops, glue on rubber pads for very little.

      Capitalism or exploitation?

      I guess the maker will have their view as I have mine
