This is a very simple template for push sticks. Push sticks are used to push stock through your table saw without getting your fingers and hands near the spinning blade. You can easily make push sticks out of scrap plywood that you have laying around the shop.
Here are my old push sticks that I’ve been using for years and years. Far from ideal. Neither has a good handle for me to hold onto. And one is completely the wrong shape to hold down stock. This is totally a safety issue.
And here are the proper push sticks I made recently.
And here is a link to the 8.5 by 11 template that you can download and print. Just cut it out and lay it on some scrap plywood and trace out the outline. Then cut it out using a band saw or jig saw and you’ve got yourself a nice new push stick!
