Here’s my version of Grr-ripper, now should I look the soft tire to be applied at the bottom.
The dimensions are 18×12,5×7,5 cm.

Well that sure beats my effort hands down!!

After trying to locate the real McCoys in Australia 2012 that including calling Micro Jig with a view to importing two I gave up, and in frustration I made these !!

There is still not any local suppliers carrying Micro Jig Products. (2015)

You have done a fine job on the production !!

@robcastle OneWood used to sell Microjig stuff in AU, but he’s put that business out to pasture to focus on woodworking youtube stuff. He has a couple of things left on his website, but no Grr-rippers

Timbertools in Mildura apparently do too, but since they don’t bother even answering their phones, I’m not sure I’d give them any business.

@mariva57 love it, the handle in particular looks much better than the real deal.

Very nice work, if I had made these I think I would cut up an old mouse pad for the bottoms.

I’ve also found that mouse pads and contact cement a terrific for push blocks, etc.

Very nicely built, but for the life of me I do not know how it is used, I am sure I need one by all the comments, I need a tutorial.
I did a search on LJ and get the idea, will be making one.
