Unlike push sticks with a short beak, the long hook of this one allows me to hold a board securely when ripping at the tablesaw, and it really holds the wood while I drive the piece into the fence when making ripcuts. The heel of this push stick supports the wood and allows me to push the workpiece through the blade or over the cutterhead.

· Calculate the angle required to get a 1″ x 5″ long taper at the end of the stake with a protractor. Drill a hole in a piece of stock that angle on the drill press.
