I have been using one similar but without the adjustment. That's a good idea.

Very nice adaption and could help in tearout. Two pieces? Maybe it's too early, maybe too late, but how can you get the slot in a single piece? Drill and extremely slim chisel? So many questions......another mug of coffee.

Two halves glued together or the center wafer is two pieces sandwiched by two sides, I guess.

I might have to make one of those, Harry.

The one shown was, as has been suggested, two pieces glued together, but not by me! I would have thought one piece in the drill press would be the quick easy way. More long winded but cleaner would be to rout the slot.

Harry,

Thanks for backing up Paul's reply. But I'm lost on the routing part, can you explain? Where did you find this little jewel? Is there a link?

I made some for a jointer out of 3 pieces a while back (much wider). Two center pieces and two side plates. The push tang just floats in mine so it auto adjusts for any thickness but 1/2" total exposure should be plenty. Mine are pretty clunky looking but I wanted to show you could make them out of shop scraps for no money and very little time. It took maybe a half hour to make them but finding pre-made handles would cut that down to 10 minutes.

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.

Doesn't look like one thickness of ply. Even so, one could make a thin blade kerf on one side. The adjustment knob would hold the tab in place.

A nice home made version of the Gripper.
