    The GRR-RIPPER directions say on page 12 to use 2 hands–one holding the handle, the other on the "main body". But I never see that stance being demonstrated–even in the MICROJIG videos they always seem to go one-handed. (Maybe I missed something?) I’d like to hear / see a little more about the recommended way to hold the thing that actually agrees with the manual.

    Is it possible to make 45 degree cuts with the gripper?



  3. Angry Beard Man on June 3, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Seen this in a few youtube videos and thought it was excellent. Ordered mine today. Should be here tomorrow.



  4. Prop Plane Pat on June 3, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I love the idea of this in theory. I have a Dewalt table saw that has a riving knife that sits above the height of the saw blade and I cant see how this would work in such a situation. Anyone have any experience with using the Grr Ripper with a DW745 and is there enough clearance above the knife for this to work?



  5. Anthony Audain on June 3, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Clearly explained



  6. Ed Haskell on June 3, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Just got mine. Let’s say I have a sheet of plywood 24" wide and I want to rip it to 12". How do I use the Gripper to do that?



  7. cole mahaney on June 3, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Where is the blade guard



  8. Mike Otton on June 3, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Could this be used to cut wedges on a table saw ?



  9. ptudor63 on June 3, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Best video ever



  10. neilorourke71 on June 3, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    PRETTY NEAT HUH?

    *SLAM*



  11. MrMeraby on June 3, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I like it but I’m a little confused . . . this is something to help with safety, right? But, I am supposed to remove a key safety item on the table saw, my blade guard, which also forms part of my sawdust collection system to keep particulates out of the air, which keeps my lungs safe long term?



  12. Alex Pacheco on June 3, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    It works fine for ripping really short peices but for me not so well if the board is longer than a foot. Probably need 2 but thats pretty expensive.



  13. richard slater on June 3, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Terrific presentation



  14. HydMonger on June 3, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    lol great video but i was rollin hearing the belly gurgles 😂🤣😂🤣 very touchy microphone



  15. Claude Perrault on June 3, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    À most complete video about the Gripper. I am saving it in my library! Very well made, the explanations are precise and to the point! Keep up the good work!



  16. Ryan Hirschey on June 3, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Just got the GR-200 with the 1/8th add-on. Used it tonight to cut down 1 inch rough stock to 3/4. Really easy and even more importantly extremely safe with the Grripper. In the short time I’ve been woodworking, I’ve come across useful tools, jigs and techniques to improve quality and safety. This is easily the best tool I’ve bought that improves both. Fantastic invention.

    I also got the match fit dovetail clamps and will be building a tabletop with dovetail tracks. Another great invention that will make a number of things easier to do. In my opinion, this is one of the most innovative companies in woodworking today.



  17. Westphalian on June 3, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    gravity heel. nevermind the cost, that is plastic going into the ecosystem . use a bit of scrap wood to do this role



  18. ian robinson on June 3, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Five days ago I came across this video on the microjig GRR-RIPPER.I was impressed by the video and figured that this is the best insurance to keep all my fingers. I immediately contacted my supplier here in Australia and YES the GRR-RIPPER was available. I ordered two GRR-RIPPERS and they arrived today. They are very well made, to be expected from USA tool manufacturers. THANK YOU MICROJIG!.Well made, well packaged, great instructional manual.



  19. Jake Drago on June 3, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Best safety tool for tablesaw and woodshop in general .



  20. Joe McKenna on June 3, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Great instructional video! The instructor is great at teaching.

    I am excited to start using the gripper. I bought one and will be buying another one later today. Thank you so much.

    5+ stars



  21. Joe Anderson on June 3, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    MOST.EXCELLENT.PERIOD

  23. J.Seashell on June 3, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    "Try doing that with a push stick." Throws the work piece with an incredulous look of why anybody would ever use push sticks ever again. Love it!! Thanks for the video and awesome product!!



  24. mightilybix on June 3, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    After seeing this I can’t not have one of these. If I have to choose between “Aaaargh! My hand!” And “Aaargh! My wallet!” I will sacrifice my wallet without further thought.



  25. glen paul on June 3, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Well done instructional video.



  26. Joseph Romero on June 3, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    I have an old delta with a fixed riving knife so its to high to run jig over it like u did in this video- any suggestions??



  27. Noah Miguel on June 3, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    WHy the fuck don’t they send it to you assembled? Would save over half the world and video…



  28. Mohamed Gaafar on June 3, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    I paid you a 100$ for a piece of plastic and you want me to assemble?!!!!!!



  29. Gregory Tomczak II on June 3, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Sucks the high cost of this. It looks great. Just glad now other companies are making some similar products for a lot less. I really like your products but safety tools and equipment should definitely be at a fair price. I honestly wish you would make them cheaper if you want to promote safety.



  30. Andrew Nebenzahl on June 3, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Slow down when demonstrating assembly. You flu through the gravity heel kit.



  31. Robert Hiday on June 3, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    It has been quite a while since you produced this, but it still has impact. I am ‘relearning’ my gripper and this was very helpful. thanks.



  32. TED'S TALK on June 3, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    4 weeks ago I had an accident with a table saw. Ill be getting one of these before I even consider using a table saw again. Take a look : https://youtube.com/shorts/LyAtkVY4nIU?feature=share



  33. Silvio Guilarducci on June 3, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Excelente jig 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻



  34. Lene Ring on June 3, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Too expensive



  35. Brian Katz on June 3, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    One of the best instructional videos I have ever watched! Thanks



  36. vilod on June 3, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Did you give me the finger@ 33:05?



  37. Bryan Warren on June 3, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    This was very informative as a new woodworker (ran the table saw for the first time today) I am very happy to have one of these. Truth be told I ran the saw and did not feel safe. Remembered your product and went out and bought it.



  38. Mikey V on June 3, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Awesome video, didn’t know this tool was so versatile, just ordered two of them, thank you!



  39. Michael Bedell on June 3, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I’m going to get this. Phenomenal presentation.



  40. Lefty on June 3, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    This tool ROCKS. The videos are critical as you get information overload. Ditto on the support



  41. Rod Weaver on June 3, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    The Gripper works pretty well for me. The only thing that doesn’t go as well as in this video is if I’m making multiple cuts on long pieces. Sawdust will tend to make its way onto the long piece, and by the time I’m ready for my 2nd piece to cut, the gripper has a film of dust on the rubber. Then if there’s is resistance/friction with the 2nd piece, the gripper will tend to slide off the front side of the wood that’s getting fed, which can be dangerous. Perhaps the best practice is to clean the gripper after each cut.



  42. gil arroyo on June 3, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Extremely helpful.



  43. Mike Vyvyan on June 3, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    As others have said this is an awesome video and a great help to setting up the Grr-ripper and its accessories, far better than for me, than trying to follow instructions in a printed manual. The practical demonstrations create an appreciation of the Grr-ripper and its widespread potential use in the workshop. For me these explanations go a long way in justifying the cost of the Grr-ripper as you can begin to see how to use it to make work easier and safer across a number of woodwork machines. So many thanks to MicroJig for providing a brilliant educational video which I trust is a reflection of high quality customer service I can expect.



  44. Jeffrey Casto on June 3, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    I got one but I can’t get it to work very well it doesn’t want to push the wood should I apply wax to my table saw?



  45. Nathan Beazer on June 3, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    You would think the amount you overcharge for this you would at least Assemble it



  46. Adel Keryakos on June 3, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Awesome tutorial 👌 Cool and knowledgeable presenter 👍👍.



  47. BoardWhareHowse on June 3, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    I wish you had shown edge jointing. I know you talked about it, but only face jointing was shown. I just got two grippers today and I want to edge joint eight 7′ long 2x4s. Ofc, an outfeed table would be super helpful, but mainly, I need to keep the pressure on the wood so it’s a clean pass



  48. Northern Lights Renovations on June 3, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Mine just arrived…. awesome safety tool!!!



  49. Eskatos Gaming on June 3, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I just got done putting my -100 and complete kits together. The packaging alone impressed me…the color codes for the bags, the fact that you gave us an extra washer for each type and that its soo easy to assemble. I love the o-rings…excellent idea and very helpful. I love you guys and Im so glad I bought these products. Thank you for your detail and thoughtfulness. Thanks for putting such a great video together as well.



  50. SK on June 3, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Just got one for Christmas. Love this thing!
