This advanced model of the GRR-Ripper boasts all of the same innovative features of the GR-100 but comes with three additional accessories (see below)-including the Gravity Heel Kit-to improve the control and expandability of the GRR-Ripper System. The Micro Jig GRR-Ripper Advanced 3D Pushblock (GR-200) is designed to feed your workpiece more safely and more accurately than with conventional push blocks, resulting in intact fingers, less burning and less waste. With its 3-Directional control, it gives you downward, forward, and lateral pressure on the stock for maximum control. Since it acts as a movable blade guard that travels with your hand, it provides an additional safety buffer between the blade and your hands. Whether you are making razor-thin veneer strips, building miniatures, or creating exquisite furniture you will save time, materials, and fingers with the GRR-Ripper. This package includes these additional accessories: The Gravity Heel Kitprovides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your saw. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. It can also be adjusted laterally to provide zero-clearance backup support to prevent grain blowout. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware. The Adjustable Spaceradds increased gripping surface for tackling larger stock. It also adds one inch of cutting width to the GRR-Ripper and acts as a secondary balance support for small stock and straight-line ripping. Great add-on for working on the router table, and eliminating snipe. The Stabilizing Plateadds a new dimension of control to the GRR-Ripper. It is particularly useful when cutting small narrow pieces of stock. Perfect for trickier cuts like resawing, bevel edging, pattern routing, and much more. It also acts as a secondary fence that travels with the GRR-Ripper along the left side of the stock. It holds the off-cut piece in its original position through the entire cutting operation. Some users call it a "Feather Board Plate," but unlike a featherboard, it exerts no sideways pressure. Instead it simply holds the drop-off piece in position as it travels past the blade, preventing binding. Click the video to see a demo today.
True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple. Prolonged exposure darkens wood to a dark-purplish brown or dark brown, but the original color can be preserved with a UV inhibitor. Color variation among boards is reported to be moderate to high. Presence of minerals in some boards may cause uneven coloration and steaming is reported to affect the color. Light & Air-Induced Changes: Treatment against the effects of ultra-violet rays maintainss the original color of the wood. Treatment with Armorall, the car finish product, under lacquer is reported to hold the color well.Grain: Typically straight, occasionally wavy or irregular.Texture: Medium to fine.Luster: Medium to high.Movement: Very dimensionally stable.Natural Durability: Highly resistant to attack by decay fungi, very resistant to dry-wood termites, and somewhat resistant to attack by marine borers. Also reported to be resistant to chemicals such as acids.Cutting Resistance: Purpleheart is moderately difficult to saw. Tools usually require frequent sharpening. A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high. It does not mar or dent easily, and is very heavy and dense.
