I have only had mine for a short time.They grip very well right now.The instructions say to clean the gripping surface with alcohol once in a while to keep them clean.Hopefully the reports of gripping perfectly and then on the next cut not working at all are a bit exaggerated.

No problems with mine. Base with hook holds piece in place fine. Dont let pads build up with saw dust, clean occasionally a recommended and tool works great.

yes it does ! out of the box. I put it away and went back to the push stick! I know that won't slip.

Gripper
My second gripper. I find myself in constant need to use my left hand for holding down a piece being ripped and my right for pushing at the same time, all the time making certain that the piece is riding against the fence. I've found that the very best things to use safely are grippers. Never a glitch in finding the piece wandering away from the fence while changing positions on the piece causing visible marring of the edges.

No regrets on making this investment
I use with a 2000 era Delta contractor saw, no riving knife. I have heard it said that control provides safety and precision and this product proves it true. I got a set of two which have allowed me to achieve improved workmanship (precision) far beyond more flimsy push-sticks. These things help with safety against kickback and protect hands/fingers. One tip: I always wipe the bottom green "gripper" parts off every few cuts....be aware that it seems to me that dust build up can actually make them slippery. if you routinely wipe them off they stay "grippy". Pricey but zero regrets and I would recommend them to anyone using a table saw. I also sometimes use them with my router table.

Safety First
As compared to other push sticks, using this product makes me feel safer. There are times where the traction pads seem to slip slightly, but the GRR-Ripper is many times better (more stable, more protection) than a traditional push stick. Watch the instructional videos by Micro Jig on youtube to see how to appropriately use the device.

Great and safe
I researched around on videos before buying a set of these and they are great to safely feed wood on a table saw. I like the features they have for adjusting as needed. After buying one GR-200 and trying it I bought the second one so that I would have it for feeding longer boards using their "leap frog" technique.

I like it
I bought two of these so I could have the same thing in both hands when ripping longer pieces. I have not had these for very long, but I have used them several times and I like them a lot. They are tall, so my hands are a good distance away from the blade and they are thick heavy duty plastic material. Its easy to adjust if necessary, but I really don't know if that's going to be required very often. I just ripped a 8/4 thick piece of purple heart into 1/2" strips. I would normally make cuts like this with the thin piece on the left side of the blade and move the fence for each cut. Since the advertising says these are made so you can run repetitive cuts with the thin piece by the fence I decided I might as well see what I thought about doing it like that right from the get-go. I had complete control of the workpiece through the entire cut. I never had any threat of kickback. Ripping the Purple Heart pushed my saw and circuit breaker to the limit though. Two of these are certainly handy for that kind of cut even if the set is a bit pricey. I thought the adjustable leg height for ripping the edge on a thin piece was going to be gimmicky, but I have used it three times and its genius. I don't know if I will ever use the large platform piece, so if I had a do over Might get the set one level down. All in all no regrets though. Actually after just a couple more seconds of thought if I had a do over I would have purchased them the very first time I saw them instead of fiddling with home made sticks and cheap push blocks for all these years. Don't get me wrong, when I first got the cheap orange push block set I was quite pleased and at the same time nervous about the lack of distance between the blade and my hands when pushing wood past/over the blade. These are just so much better for me I don't really care that they are expensive.

at first i was like no way am I spending $80 on a push block, until I was using my standard push block and the blade caught the very edge of it and almost ripped it out of my hands, and I will tell you what you really appreciate all your fingers and limbs after something like that. Now that I have it and use it on every thing for the most part that goes through the table saw. If you appreciate all your fingers and really understand how valuable they are then $80 is cheap...

Leider werden die Lungenkarzinome häufig erst in einem Stadium entdeckt, in dem sie lokale Symptome machen. Diese lokalen Probleme sind uns allen bekannt. Aber jedes Lungenkarzinom beeinträchtigt den ganzen Menschen. Abgesehen davon, dass die Diagnose eines Lungenkarzinoms eine erhebliche psychische Belastung darstellt, kann ein auf den Thorax beschränkter Tumor erhebliche systemische Auswirkungen haben: Am einprägsamsten sind die klassischen paraneoplastischen Syndrome. Aber auch die Erschöpfungs- und Müdigkeitssymptomatik im Rahmen eines Fatigue-Syndroms (Fatigue bezeichnet das Gefühl körperlicher und geistiger Müdigkeit, die mit reduzierter Leistungsfähigkeit und Muskelkraft einhergeht) und die Anorexie und Kachexie stellen für die Patienten erhebliche Probleme dar. In der Therapie des Lungenkarzinoms konnten innerhalb der letzten Jahrzehnte Fortschritte erzielt werden, jedoch sind vor allem in fortgeschritteneren Stadien lediglich palliative Therapien möglich. Allerdings wird weiterhin auch hier zu sehr mit Ansprechraten und sehr geringen Überlebensvorteilen argumentiert und die Belastungen des Patienten durch die allgemeinen Auswirkungen des Tumors werden zu wenig berücksichtigt. Umgekehrt kann die Tumor-spezifische Therapie das Fatigue-Syndrom und das Anorexie-Kachexie-Syndrom verstärken und damit die Lebensqualität verschlechtern. Während beim Fatigue-Syndrom ein wichtiger Teilaspekt die Anämie ist und diese behandelt werden kann, ist die Situation beim Anorexie-Kachexie-Syndrom komplexer und nur partiell geklärt. Entsprechend wird auch noch nach adäquaten Therapiemöglichkeiten gesucht.

All this would be a step forward, says Guntram Wolff of Bruegel, a think-tank. But he thinks the reforms should go further. The French and Germans agreed to keep the governance of the bail-out fund unchanged. But it is too complicated. In order for it to be tapped, finance ministers must reach unanimous agreement. National laws mean that parliaments in some countries, notably Germany, must grant their approval. That could stop the fund winding down a failed bank swiftly over a weekend, as it may need to.

But the Germans insisted on national control, saying that it has not held up decision-making so far. Their reservations also stymied immediate progress towards a common deposit-insurance scheme. Mr Juncker had hoped to soothe northerners’ fears with a gradual implementation during which the common fund would lend to national schemes in times of trouble. His hope that banking union would be complete by 2019 now seems unrealistic. A proposal from the commission to create securities backed by a pool of sovereign bonds has been nixed. Without it, banks will have little incentive to diversify sovereign risk.

Mr Macron’s prize is a concession from Germany on the euro-zone budget. For the first time, the French point out, Germany has acknowledged that macroeconomic stabilisation is not a matter for national governments only, but a common concern. Though Mr Macron envisions a budget in the region of several percent of GDP, Mrs Merkel is known to want something much stingier. Nevertheless, as Mr Macron says, it would be a “real budget with annual revenues”. He would like to see it raise revenues directly, possibly from a financial-transactions tax, though that would be contentious.

Most of the money would be invested in innovation, helping economic convergence. There is a mention, too, of an unemployment-stabilisation fund to act as an emergency credit line for national unemployment-insurance schemes. But such a design, which accords with German nervousness about fiscal transfers, might not be enough in deep downturns.

Mr Macron and Mrs Merkel may finally agree on the merits of a central budget. But others must now be convinced. Mrs Merkel’s coalition partner, the Christian Social Union, has expressed scepticism. The Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, has said he sees little point in it if countries keep their public finances in order. Yet even a well-maintained roof may spring a leak.

Recieved my new DroboPro yesterday, ran a test backup to disk job last night using a copy of the normal Differential tape job. Normal job takes on average 6 hours..this test took 8.5 backing up a hair over 500gigs. Server is an HP Proliant DL360 G5, 3.25ghz Xeon, 3.5gb ram, pcie 1gig dediacted nic for iSCSI. Wired directly to the DroboPro whose also got a 1gb interface. Having never setup or configured iSCSI before I let the install disk do that for me. Anyway, Are there any "best practices" or performance related things I can do either in Backup Exec (ver 12) or within Server 2003 itself? Since this test job and the previous nights jobs both backed up 583gb and 596gb respectively, I would have assumed that sata-300 disks would write faster than an LTO4 tape drive... Any advice?

I should have written this first in MS Word because the browser just ate my homework. GbE is 95MB/s at best when using jumbo frames. SATA drives are typically 90 to 120 MB/s but this can drop to a few MB/s when access is random and file system data is being updated. The option to optimise to reduce CPU load can slow network operations that want a fast reply before the next request is sent. An LTO4 drive can probably write 270MB/s max if the data is 2.5:1 compressible while the tape runs at a an average of 108MB/s raw instead of 120MB/s. Obviously it is only as fast as it's weakest link.

I agree with Tygrus2. Only to add to what Tygrus2 posted, I would also check some of the options withing Backup Exec itself. Do you have the option checked to "Verify"? This can take up extra time. I know that we also have an LTO4 library and I have seen it backup to tape at an average of 1.5GB/min with gusts up to 6GB/min. Then when I go to DAS (Direct Attached Storage) it sometimes went slower. I then changed it from a RAID5 to a RAID0. We did this for two reasons: 1 - needed more space and RAID0 allowed this, 2- It has much faster Read/Write than RAID5 or 10. this helped out our time. *We are aware that if we lose a disk that the entire RAID is gone.* When we were having these same issues as you and it was because we were trying to shove data the size of a lemon through a data cable the size of a garden hose. That, again, is what Tygrus2 was saying.

@tygrus: I just read where the limit for Gigabit Ethernet was 125mbps.. nut Im unsure if that was theoretical or what. You mentioning hte weakest link got me to thinking though and I chose poorly with regards to the hard drives themselves. The Western Digitals I chose have a max rate of 100mbps from the buffer to disk. I should have put more time into that decision becaue Hitachi Deskstars for just a little more in price have a max of 202mbps (buffer to disk). @ggipson: No I do not use teh verify option specifically because it doubles teh amount of time teh job runs. And I tossed around the idea of using the Drobo drives in a Raid0 format however since one of the goals was to stop daily jobs to tapes altogether and only push to tape for the weekly jobs I can't afford to lose the data protection raid5 offers. How different were your jobs switching from Raid5 to 0? Also I'm going through and updating the nic, disk/array controller drivers and firmware since I realized teh backup server was using scsi array controller drivers from 2006. Anyway I found that Microsoft's iSCSI Initiator 2.08 is dated 2008.. I've googled a bit and it doesnt appear they've updated it at all. Should I continue to use it or is there a better alternative?
