Microjig to donate safety
devices to every school
woodshop in U.S.
During the show, Microjig announced that it
will donate two of its best-selling Grr-Rippers
to every public high school woodworking
program in the country through its new school
The goal of putting two of its best-selling
Grr-Rippers on every table saw in every woodshop program in the country by 2020 is due in
part to America’s unprecedented shortage of
skilled laborers, from carpenters and masons to
plumbers and electricians. High schools across
the country have backed off technical classes
because of expensive, outdated equipment
and safety concerns.
As part of the new program, Microjig hopes
to donate to the 2,714 public high schools
with Career Technical Education (CTE) programs that offer construction and woodworking courses. Schools can apply on Microjigs
website. As part of the program, Microjig will
also offer 50 percent off for all public schools
interested in adding other Microjig products or
