Best part of the design is that it doesn’t matter which part of it you grab, it’s always a handle.
Pushsticks are literally sacrificial items. They’re meant to be cut into if needed.
If you cut into yours, with all those holes in it, it’ll be significantly weaker, potentially breaking apart as you’re pushing a piece through the blade. Not to mention the fact that you’ve glued sandpaper to the stick, which sounds like a good idea….but having gritty things anywhere near a blade is just asking for a dull blade.
And, this looks like it’s taken way too long to make, drilling all those holes.
It’s cool looking.
But items designed for safety need to be more practical and functional.
Just my opinion, as you’ve asked for opinions.
Hi Im new at woodworking
I tried to open the page for the free plans for the push stick.
It said can’t find page.
Can somebody help
Thanks for the pdf!
Could you make one of the ‘tail grippers’ shallow and the other deeper for different thicknesses of wood?
Hello my friend, first I want to say that this is a great video, but I have a problem. For months I had been thinking about a good push stick until I finally came up with an idea that seemed perfect to me. I made a video of it and placed the video on my channel this week. I quickly received a comment that the push stick I made was very similar to yours and I was also blamed by one person for having stolen your idea. While I had never seen your video before. this doesn’t feel so good to me and wanted to let you know personally that there are similarities between our designs and that these are purely coincidental. Even our titles are similar, while there are clear differences and my title is in the same line as the titles of other videos I already made. I thought of putting a note in my description with the reference to your video and that the similarities are purely coincidental, that way I start to feel better about it.
I never intended to copy your work and I hope you understand the coincidence in this.
PS I have now subscribed to your channel and before i make a video iwill first come to see if you have not worked out the same idea. You know what they say, great minds think alike!
Very nice, but I seen them break in the hand of the user, if I make it and I will I’ll have one hole in the tip of the handle just for hanging and maybe somewhat thicker.
Template link doesn’t work
Nicely engineered. 👍🏻👍🏻
Awesome push stick
Man, love the push stick, and I went to your site and for $20 delivered I bought. Now I can use it as a template while I use it as intended as well. Keep up the videos! Thank you. Sergio
A Cautionary Tale. This is a great design…. so I had a nice scrap of Oak. After I finished the build, I dropped it and it broke into three pieces. Next time I’ll use plywood.
I found this very useful, so much I took the template and did a 3D file .step file for those who have CNC’s as myself + added a undercut in corner. With woodcraft’s permission I’ll gladly share it if anyone is interested.
The template page is blank. I guess it was only available a short time. Can someone please email it to me?
I forgot to ask if you could have the template be transferred to fusion 360, I did it by the instructions but it still doesn’t download.
Is the radius for the angle 2” or 1 3/4”?
I cannot get the template but I can’t go to the website and buy one for 20 bucks but I was more interested in the free template so I can make my own
Also subs as some wooden brass knuckles if you ever need to take care of bidness..lol
Not that it would be very difficult to make our own version of it, but it’s too bad we can’t download the "free" plan 🤷🏻♂️
Thanks for a very cool Push-Stick 🙂
Made one. Works really well, thanks for offering it for free.
Do you still offer the template for the push stick with holes
I thought it was a boomerang 😅 but light I’m sure, like the sand paper too!
it’s a good stick. I make mine with baltic birch 1/4" ply, and build up the handle to 3/4". I drill a 1" hole near the top and open the hole up on the forward side to make it easy to get a finger in & out. That way I can hang on to the pushstick with a ring or pinky finger while picking up the next piece of stock.
IDK how well this will work, but I’m definitely going to try it and will update this comment. Loved the video man, great quality. Insta subscribed.
The push stick template link does not work.
Regarding safety: Imagine the possibility that the work piece suddenly is not between your hand or the push stick and the blade. The max. blade height of your saw is likely about 3". Your design does not prohibit your hand from gripping the push stick and being closer to the saw table than the height of the blade at times. I prefer designs which eliminate this possibility altogether.
Also, while the sand paper gives improved ability to keep the work piece against the fence, rip cuts narrower than 3/4" will cut through the bottom of the push stick, in which case the sand paper will not do the blade’s teeth any favors. Sticky bottom is a good idea, but better executed with some type of grippy rubber, such as what is used on the bottom of track saw tracks. I have found rolls of self adhesive rubber strip on McMaster Carr, etc. that work well for such applications.
i like your design ! but I’m afraid at some point my push sticks all become sacrificial and I’d source some rubber of some sort because sandpaper hitting my saw blades teeth would not be optimal. The stick itself is great !
Why do you need a billing address to get the free push stick template???
This is awesome. Holes or each finger. I don’t have to drill new holes as I saw my fingers off. Brilliant! 😂
It’s funny when he said, "regular ol push stick" and, "I’m not really good with regular ol". It is supposed to be as the saying goes, "regular old…".
Slick design and it works great. I downloaded your template and made one. Keep the great designs coming.
Cannot download. Please advise.
smart looking stick love the shape 10/10
I would drill the holes first.
love my stick…. thanks
Love the design. I actually 3D printed a few in several thicknesses. I like that it’s dual sided, so I don’t have to think when I grab it.
Those holes on it turned it looks nice, but you must be careful because accidentally you may get your finger trapped in one of those while you cutting and then… can’t imagine. But the idea is fantastic. Well done.
Im from Australia and cant download plans as the shopping cart wont send to that address
I am not able to download the pdf. How to do it?
"A handle here and a handle here"
Sorry – two ways to do the same thing exactly the same way – you didn’t sell me on it.
I would like to see a similar design but carrying the shape all the way round, using 60 degree angles make a equilateral triangle, I know you are only going to get three push heals but they could be made different depths for different thickness wood ie you could make them 1/4 “ 3/4” and 1’1/4 or just make them to your specific requirements
Very cool idea! Thanks for taking the time to share. I’m fairly new to woodworking and want to give this a try.
This is neat design but the thing most over looked by people it the difference of the height of the person compared to the height of the saw table this is what makes the stick comfortable or not for the most part short stick short person it sucks believe me that is why my sticks are long is not only to ush it past the blade itself but far enough away to make it safe to grab but you still have a really cool design cheers
Hey guys apparently there was an issue with the original scanned template but it is fixed now and should work great if you re-download the pdf. My sincere apologies for the mix up if you ran into trouble!
They make sponge-like cabinet shelf liners that really grip well I noticed for this situation. Just like the GRRPR.
An old boy I revered regarding woodworking had a unique push stick. I thought it was unique. One feature that was worthy of a question for him was the use of a dowel for the push point. The dowel was vertical and behind the heel of his hand. It was in a sticky hole in that he started it by pushing it to protrude in excess of the part thickness to be sawn. As he began to push, the dowel was driven up into it’s hole to exactly the part thickness.
