Bench Dog Push-Loc

bench_dog_push_loc.jpgWe're fans of anything that makes a table saw safer and push sticks are at the top of that list. The ones that come with the saws, the long stick with the little bird mouth at the end of it, are nearly as dangerous as not using a push stick at all. Sure they can push something through the saw, but when the piece of wood starts to ride up on the blade, you're screwed. We always recommend to people that they throw those out and make their own out of a piece of 1/2" plywood, one that extends out over the top of the work piece. But after today, we might just suggest buying a Bench Dog Push-Loc.

The Push-Loc is basically the same design as our homemade push sticks but has a number of features that ours don't have. For one, it has an offset handle which not only puts your delicate little digits even further away from the blade (always a good thing), but also makes the stick compatible with a router table. In addition, the Push-Loc has a rubber sole to prevent slipping and marring.

The Push-Loc comes with a docking station that can attach to your table saw. The docking station has a tape measure holder and a pencil tray.

The Puch Loc retails for somewhere between $15 and $20. Quite a bit cheaper than losing a finger.
