Fast, Safe, & Accurate Thin Ripping With ThinRip Guide | Woodpeckers Tools

ThinRip Guide:

From Kumiko panels to through-inlaid cutting boards and beyond, a lot of popular projects these days call for an abundance of consistent-dimension thin strips. Trapping those thin strips between your table saw blade and the rip fence can cause kickback. Also, tension release in the cut can cause binding and burning. It’s smarter to have the strip on the offcut side of your blade, but how do you keep the thickness consistent? Woodpeckers new ThinRip Guide is the answer. The ThinRip Guide provides a perfectly safe stop on the offcut side of the blade that delivers the same sized strips over and over again as you move your fence closer to the blade.

    Sorry but this is… a stop block? If you’ve got more money than sense, go ahead but this is supreme over-engineering. Well done Woodpeckers if you successfully market this.

    Is that Randall Carlsons voice !?

    This thing is awesome! Somehow, I expect that a few Youtubers will think of several alternative uses for this.

    Would you say that this works as an effective feather board to help keep material against the fence?

  5. Kit Murphy on July 2, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    I can do that with my Incra fence.

    One of these will come in handy if you have a sliding table as well. No need to use a fence (provided the stock is wide enough).

    I THINK reaching behind the blade to grab the offcuts going to get you hurt.
    A smarter way is to use a wide push block thats thick and poses both the stock and the thin strip past the blade into a safe area it can rest without touching the blade. Also a Set of Jessem stock guides for the table saw.
    Also a zero clearance table saw incert and micro jigs splitter
    Reaching close to a moving blade is a trip to the er wating to happen.
    It only takes a split second, and ive seen it done, guy wasnt even reaching for anything on the table he moved his hand to help move a 4×8 sheet of 3/4" mdf his right hand went over the running blade he’d done this a 1000 times only this one time his hand was too close to the table he got to complacent and wasn’t paying attention to his hand movements.
    All we heard was ting and off to get it fixed. It sounded like a small pice of wood hit the blade. It was his finger tip.

    One second is all it takes if even that.
    Your far better off staying as far from the blade as you can when its turning.
    It cuts wood your hands and fingers are no match.

    I watched my dad do this when I was a small boy. He never got hurt. But why risk it?

    Where to get first in Germany? 🙂

    The slot on my SawStop Jobsite Pro saw is 6 inches away from the blade. Will your thin rip guide work on this saw?

  10. Robert Perkins on July 2, 2023 at 2:11 pm

    Will this work on a saw without T-Slots?

  11. MakerModder on July 2, 2023 at 2:15 pm

    you did not seriously touch the back area from the blade while saying something about safety..

  12. Jochem B on July 2, 2023 at 2:21 pm

    Will there be a metric version?

  13. John R. Flegg on July 2, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    Am I correct in assuming, as is Woodpeckers normal practice, that the track nuts will not fit the Shopsmith table?

    미국과 같은 가격에 판매만 한다면 신제품은 매번 구매 하겠지만 아쉽게도 한국은 비싸지

  15. Kirk Williams on July 2, 2023 at 2:27 pm

    But don’t you have to readjust for every cut? Unless you are using the same width stock for ever cot. If you use the same piece of wood it is now thinner and the stop would have to be re set every single time. Verses cutting you thin strips against the fence which then never needs to move. I don’t get this tool other than a one time cut. Still need your blade fence, very dangerous. Also, if you’re using a Saw Stop make sure it is off when you set this up or you will trigger the blade.

    I need to try one of these! The bearing is far superior to my old thin rip guide without one. Woodpeckers always improving the status quo!

  17. Danny Dominguez on July 2, 2023 at 2:34 pm

    Can this be used like featherboard?

  18. Spencley Design Co. on July 2, 2023 at 2:37 pm

    I love mine! It works perfectly on my cheap table saw

  19. jeremy s on July 2, 2023 at 2:42 pm

    Tilt router table base?

  20. Golf Expert believe me on July 2, 2023 at 2:43 pm

    work on a ridgid R4512?

  21. Jim on July 2, 2023 at 2:44 pm

    Will it work with the Bosch 4100?

  22. Omar Henderson on July 2, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    Great idea and product. Tried to DIY but the strips were not Exactly same. Waiting to do some thin strip cutting.

  23. KENNY C on July 2, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    Gee, and only $160 !

  24. Stan Mondzelewski on July 2, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    That little thing probably cost what the sawstop does, if not more

  25. Walter Plaessmann on July 2, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    The double bearing design is a step up from other jigs out there, should provide more consistent cuts. Doesn’t look like there’s a leaf spring like on the Exact 90 miter bar to keep the jig against one side of the miter slot, so assuming you just need to pull it tight against one side of the slot before tightening down? Maybe an idea for a v2 jig to put a leaf spring on the right side so it pushes the jig against the left wall of the slot.
