The GRR-RIPPER is made of specially formulated high-impact plastics for good reason. It maintains its shape and rigidity, but also absorbs force if it makes contact with the blade. In other words, it won't shatter or break your wrist.
What is the difference between the GRR-RIP BLOCK and the GRR-RIPPER?
The GRR-RIPPER is designed for adjustability, whereas the GRR-RIP BLOCK was designed for simplicity, and pure traction. They feature the same GREEN GRR-RIP material, but the GRR-RIP BLOCK has a solid, much broader gripping surface and auto-retracting Smart Hooks. It's ideal for use on the jointer, the router table, and on the bandsaw. It can be used on the table saw, but only for non-thru cuts or cuts that don't require passing directly over the blade.
I accidentally cut the Smart Hooks off - what now?
You don't need to replace the whole GRR-RIP BLOCK! Just pop out the damaged ones and pop in the new ones. Contact us for replacements.
