I just got my GRR-Ripper GR-200 in the mail, first out of the box impression, WOW a well made, well thought out tool!
I really should have gotten one years ago!
My 76 year old Dad recently picked up a good used benchtop tablesaw, he cuts small pieces of hardwood and plywood for his RC airplane building, he used to go to his friends house to use his saw, but the friend has been busy and or not so healthy anymore, so Dad got a saw himself. I am honestly worried about him cutting a finger, so I suggested the GRR-Ripper, I told him how good it is. He asked me then "Why don't you have one?" Good ole Dad, cuts right to the chase, I had no good answer, so I ordered one for him and one for me from Lee Valley. I got mine today, and they were ordered on the same day, he has yet to get his
It will be his birthday present, I'm sure it will serve him well, I also got the DVD which is great for putting it together etc.
I cannot recommend this little tool highly enough, it is that good!
