Grrrpr use on Bandsaw
#7
  
You might suspect that I am a bandsaw beginner and you would be right. With that in mind, I have two grrripr push blocks (the expensive model) and some replacement legs. If they have application in the world of bandsaws I'll keep one otherwise they will appear in S&S at an attractive price.

If there is an application in the bandsaw world, please describe it for me. TIA
Thanks,  Curt

I think a good application for the Grrrprrrr blocks are for re-sawing. You've got the two tabs drop down to give it force to push and it's flat up against the work piece hold it against the fence straight through the cut.

I use one for re-sawing on the bandsaw. I like it. Just my two cents.

my sister lost the tip of her thumb using her bandsaw.  But it really depends on what you are doing with your bandsaw.  I usually resaw with mine, so the Grrrrper is pretty useful for that.  Just got some of the heel tabs for them
