Grr-Ripper support - 5 replies

I just wanted to offer a quick note of appreciation for support from MicroJig. One of the plastic knobs on my Grr-ripper cracked so that it slipped on the thumbscrew and was difficult to tighten.

I needed 20 pulls for my shop cabinet drawers and didn’t want to spend money for them so I came up with a simple drawer pull design. I made a cove by running two lengths of 1×2 at an angle through the table saw. Then angled one edge 15 degrees and cut them to 5” lengths. They work great!
