Table Saw Fence Push Stick[edit | edit source]

Project developed by User:JasonBell

Abstract[edit | edit source]

This part solves the problem of making very thin cuts on a table saw in a safe way. All current push sticks or push blocks on the market do not allow for cuts under 1/2" while still maintaining the guards over the saw blade. This push stick rides on the fence of the saw and allows for a safer cut and makes smaller cuts possible without ruining the user's push stick.


Bill of Materials[edit | edit source]

This part can be fully printed and no other components are necessary.
