GRR-Ripper

I saw this tool in operation and after all the years that I have been exposed to the table saw dangers this product impressed me the most.  I think it would be of benifit for all of us to watch this in operation and it is reasonable in price as well.  Much better than any push stick or…

Hi Jay, I hope your getting better I sure do miss reading your replies to other peoples posts. I'm going to be launching a web site soon, gonna try to sell some pens on the internet. I'm working on getting an inventory built up. I have about 35 done so far and all my freinds and family think I could sell them online. I have sold a few of them all ready to people I know. The mountain house is keeping pretty busy also. It is a shame there is a couple thousand miles between us, I would think it would be great to sit down and have a beer or two.

Your freind on the east coast, Ray
