One of the handy things about the Laser Engraver is that you can get very nice, reproducible 90 degree cuts in MDF.
I took advantage of this fact to make some Push Sticks for use on the SawStop table saw at TechShop San Jose - www.techshop.ws
Step 1: Kinda Looks Like an Old Lady's Shoe...
But it keeps hands away from the table saw blade.
I designed this to be used right next to the SawStop's fence.
I think of Push Sticks as sacrificial - they're not meant for long term re-use. If they get cut, that's still a safe deal. Hands and fingers stay safer.
Step 2: I Use My Old Friend, 1/4" MDF
It cuts on a 45watt or 60watt Laser.
It's easy to reproduce these.
Here's the Corel Draw v15 file...
Step 3: And They're Ready to Use...
Once you've cut one or more of these, you can use them alone or glue a couple together to get a thicker Push Stick.
Happy Cutting and Safer Sawing!
