Best single safety device there is. Lets you push against the fence, down on the table, and forward into the blade, all at the same time. Takes a few seconds to set up to avoid the blade, and then wowie, it goes to work. Get one if you don't have one. I have two, which I only rarely use together, but for long rips, nothing better.
I've got 2 of those, one with the full set of extras, but my favorite for regular boards is the one that has the drop down catches that grip the back end of the board. The older push blocks I have seem to be getting brittle on the pads. They seem to have a black rubbery substance that is breaking down. It would be great if I could find a substance like that of the Grippers green pads to replace the old rubber with...any ideas/sources?
