O yes, this is the best,...

O yes, this is the best, hand guard safety push tool aid I have ever used. Its clever, superior, well balanced in my hand. Friction free smooth, through the full path-way of my wood cutting on my table saw. One extra thing is, on the right-side of the replacement heel I found by laying the right side of the heel down on a sheet of 180 grit sand paper, and ever-so-lightly sanding back-and-forth one time I can adjust the smoothness of the sliding and holding power of locking key-points from 1/8th to 7/8th. On the front scale, rip only action,  it also helps me load a new replacement heel! I found this Hand Guard Push Tool to give me the best aid in creating all my wood-working project.

I have been using the Hand Guard safety push tool for many years, my first one was a gift to me lasting me many years, as I am always careful running my table saw .The company making the Hand Guard called me back the next day helping me find the nearest store that sells Hand Guards, So I then orderd 2 so I can maybe give one as a gift back to my friend, I even got a curtsy call back from the Hand Guard factory to make sure I found my new Hand Guards OK. A true made in the U.S.A. safety tool! I'm not just saying this, Hand Guard safety tool aid Really Really works, smoothly holding my wood in line with the cutting blade, keeping my hands safe &clear away from the blade . There is no substitute.

I first saw the Hand Guard...

I first saw the Hand Guard on the south wall on the New Yankee web site after viwing the ratings on Rockler.com /safety tools I Had to try the Hand Guard out. I find the Hand Guard to be an excellent aid for my hands ,eyes & wood support. How the Heel legs move up & down ,when I'm cutting really thin woods or ply woods. Their is no shaking or popping of the wood as itpasses through the cutting edge. Before I cut the wood I set the teeth so the teeth just come through the top of what I'm cutting with the power OFF. Then I set the heel on the Hand Guard to one of its 4 setting so to aid in a clean smooth cut on the wood I'm cutting.The holding power of the Hand Guard is like having the holding power of 3 hands pushing down,inward & from the back giving 100% aid with ease. I been cutting wood on my Grandpa's table saw starting when I was 8 years old standing on a wood box. And now Im 62 years young still cutting I wish I was the one at 8 years old who came up with the Hand Guard back then.Every one I have shown the Hand Guard to wants one now.
