The Grr-Ripper Gravity Heel Kit provides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your table saw, bandsaw or router table. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. This means there's no need to remove it or adjust it when it's not needed. The Gravity Heel can also be adjusted laterally to provide backup support when you wish to prevent grain blowout of any kind. Simply saw through the heel to provide zero-clearance support. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware.


Features:
  • Fully adjustable for stock thicknesses from 0-1''
  • Fits all existing Grr-Ripper push blocks
  • Easy to use with two push blocks and the leapfrog method; heels grab the tail end of your board and automatically retract mid-board
  • Increases control and stability when feeding long or short stock—provides extra support to help feed stock and prevent blow out

GRR-Ripper Gravity Heel Kit
Excellent! I can now safely use my table saw by using Micro Jig GRR-Ripper with the gravity heel kit. I especially like the gravity heel feature to give positive mechanical contact while cutting piece of wood on my table saw without the fear of dangerous and deadly kickback of the wood.

Safety plus
Had my Grr-Rippers since hey first came out and they are definitely worth having. The gravity heel kit adds another layer of protection by making sure you have full control of the material. They prevent slipping on dusty or slippery surfaces and work as advertised.

Can this function as a sacrificial foot?
Mark S on Sep 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It was designed for that. That is why several are included even though you can reuse it over and over and over before it needs replacing.
