Microjig to donate safety
devices to every school
woodshop in the U.S.
Microjig says it will donate two of its
best-selling Grr-Rippers to every public high school woodworking program
in the country through its new school
America is currently facing an
unprecedented shortage of skilled
laborers, from carpenters and masons
to plumbers and electricians. Even so,
high schools across the country have
backed off technical classes, in part
because of safety concerns running
saws and other equipment.
At I WF in Atlanta, the company
unveiled its school donation program
with the goal of putting two of its
best-selling Grr-Rippers on every
table saw in every woodshop program
in the country by 2020.
As part of the new program,
Microjig hopes to donate to the 2,714
public high schools with programs
that offer construction and woodworking courses.
The Grr-Ripper is Microjig’s original product, developed 15 years ago
Each Grr-Ripper retails for $59, so
with this donation program, Microjig
aims to donate more than $325,000
to public schools across the country.
Schools will be able to apply on
Microjig’s website. As part of the
program, Microjig will also offer
50 percent off for all public schools
interested in adding other Microjig
products or additional Grr-Rippers.
