    The above are a very desirable but over priced addition I would like to make to my table saw. I have no machining facilities but feel it is a relatively simple job to make a couple of simple brackets that I could mount to the table saw fence and fit a couple of off the shelf bearings. I know they wouldnt have all the Gucci angles etc but there must be a way to achieve this. Such a great idea and finger saver..... But why so expensive?? Suggestions anyone.

    My preference is one like in the middle and a couple of standard push stick.

    Those bearing runners look like they will get in the way of using. Push stick and can't see there usefulness.

    Each cut should be judged on their own merits and pushed accordingly.

    The gripper style have there place.
    Especially with blind cuts and very useful on router table and planer.
