At the IWF in Atlanta, MicroJig 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.

"MicroJig is built on the idea that there is a safer, smarter way for people to work with their hands and build their dreams," the company’s CEO Bruce Wang said in a statement. "It's our goal to end table saw injuries by 2020. We see this new donation program as an essential step toward that, arming the next generation of craftspeople and skilled trade professionals with the tools to empower them to succeed at their passions."

As part of the new program, MicroJig hopes to donate to the 2,714 public high schools with Career Technical Education programs that offer construction and woodworking courses.
