Default Push block

Anybody use grout floats as push blocks? I use one and find that it works well and it's cheap!

Hadn't thought of that one Vinnie. Good tip.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

great tip Vinnie....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Good suggestion. The metal layer is kind of reassuring.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

The rubber can be cleaned off every now and then and it gets tackier. Glad I could offer a tip

Excellent suggestion. I've purchased just the handles to make my own push blocks as well. Works great for making a jig to push large pieces through a router with a backer block to avoid rip out.
