One of the best gifts that I received for Christmas was this MicroJig GR-100 push block. This is a tool that helps you to safely and accurately push wood through a table saw, router, or jointer. It has a unique 3D design that allows you to adjust the push pads to fit any shape or size of wood. It also has a built-in handle that gives you a comfortable and firm grip. I have always wanted to try this push block, but I was hesitant to buy it for myself because of its high price. It costs around $60, which is quite expensive for a push block. However, I was lucky enough to get it as a gift from someone who knows how much I love woodworking. I was very grateful and excited to use it. When I first opened the box, I was a bit nervous about the 3D aspect of the push block. I wondered if it would be complicated to assemble and use, or if it would be too bulky or heavy. But as soon as I took it out of the box, I was impressed by how sturdy and well-thought-out it was. The push block came with a clear and detailed instruction manual that showed me how to put it together and how to adjust it for different types of cuts. It was very easy to follow, and it only took me a few minutes to set it up. To test the push block, I decided to use it for some test cuts that I needed to make for an upcoming edge grain cutting board project. I had some pieces of walnut and maple that I wanted to cut into strips and then glue them together. I used the push block to push the wood through the table saw, and I was amazed by how smoothly and accurately it worked. The push block gave me a lot of control and stability, and it prevented any kickback or slipping. The push pads gripped the wood firmly and did not leave any marks or scratches. The push block also protected my fingers and hands from the blade, which made me feel more confident and safer. I was very happy with the performance and quality of the push block. It made my cutting process much easier and faster, and it improved the results of my work. The push block was definitely worth the price, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable and versatile push block. I can’t wait to use it for more woodworking projects in the future.
