    tablesaw feeder

    I was a a woodworking show and was amazed at the things that the grip-tite demonstrator cut on his tablesaw- 3/8" x 1/4" x 8' piece cut in half lengthwise-pulled out of the saw by an 8 year old passerby, a warped piece of plywood 4' high rabbeted perfectly on edge, 1/8" x 3/4" strips 6 feet long cut as fast as he could push wood thru the saw.

    He could let go of any piece at any time- and got no kickback. He must have cut 30 cuts while I watched

    The set actually works! it takes me 10 seconds to setup feeder wheels that pull wood to the fence and stop kickback.

    I guess they aren't new, but every tablesaw should come with them.

    Anybody else out there use them?

    Welcome to the Family Jerry!

    I know when I get my new saw, I'm going to be investing in accessories like that!

    tablesaw feeder

    The feeder I am talking about is a human powered feeder that rolls wood to the fence with angled sandpaper wheels. You finish the cut by pushing your push stick or the next stick under the wheels. Here is a link to the web site.

    Hi again Jerry

    I guess you are talking about these.....


    .... which look like an accessory that attaches to the Grip-Tite hold downs....


    You can just see them on the underside of the hold downs.

    Is that right?

    Kind of sounds like these?

    I've got a set and use them all the time. They actually to pull the wood right into the fence.

    But I think theyd get in the way of the grip tite push thingy...
