Default Push Sticks, The Good,the Bad and...

There are good ones,those which allow the operator to press down while simultaneously pushing forward, and those that don't ,won't or can't. If your falls into the latter category consider these designs, the 2 in the center!

I have just been looking on the internet at Push Sticks. It would be interesting to see what people with 10 digits use. I like the look of the Vermont American Push Shoe Plus, not that it is available in the U.K. But a plywood version of it soon may be. What is the best you lot can offer?

I may offer a prize to the person with the most intact fingers and collection of pushsticks. It would be an idea to give the sticks some colour. NO, NOT RED!!!
A perspective of English pushsticks?

BJ, the sheer square footage those take up must be bigger than my shed.

You never cease to amaze with the plethora of items and pictures.

Ship a few my way...I need to get a band saw or a jig saw to make some handles for push blocks and some push sticks for various sized wood. The one I have doesn't work as nice as I would like it to when I am pushing 1/4" stock.

For nearly all cuts I like the GRR Gripper It is big and bulky but keeps your hand away from the blade Micro Jig Grr-Ripper Information -Peachtree Woodworking Supply. You asked for those with 10 digits to reply. There are those of us that have 10 digets, but three have seen better days. Trust me, you will get the information from us because we have a lasting respect for the machines. You can read my post "the one post I never wanted to make" in the safety forum. Just a thought.
