this was one of those things i had been wanting to do for a while get some kind of advertisement out .some of the stuff i sell are just simple things but a lot of the sells come from seeing it at the ones home that buys them and they send them back ,this i learnt while in trade school taking auto body shop the instructor always said do a good job and the work will come back to you from it ,with this it will be there on the item , it works just as advertised and Rockler is a great company ...

One and Done!

One and Done!

I bought these bench hold fasts from Rockler. One moderate tap with my mallet and it broke. I had another one, same issue. Extremely poor quality and not worth a cent. I expect better from Rockler than this PoS. I think the Taiwan stamp says it all.

It works, and the price is right

It works, and the price is right

Not a whole lot to say about these remote switches. I base my opinion on the functionality and the price, and this one does well in both areas. It’s pretty simple – you plug the base unit into the wall and plug your DC into the base unit, then when you want to turn the DC on or off you press the button on the remote control. Took about 20 seconds to install it, and it worked right away, no settings to mess around with or anything like that. Very handy when you have a smaller...

Tablesaw Essentials.

Tablesaw Essentials.

Well you could get by without them. $15 a pair from Rockler. What the heck are they? They hold aux. fences and stopblocks to your existing rip fence, for crosscutting and dado operations where the blade would otherwise obliterate your existing fence. Just rip a piece of ply, melamine, or other stable stock, drill two holes for the clamps, and clamp away. The biesemeyer aux. fences with clamps are around $150. The only advantage I see is that their fence is exactly 1” thic...

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

Rock solid Rockler tenoning jig

2349 days ago by GusRod | 18 comments »

I’ve used shop made wood and metal tenoning jigs before but this one far exceeded my expectations. The tool is as hefty as they come but glides along the miter slot as if it was on a cushion of air. It’s clamp is strong enough to easily hold three foot 4×4’s for a blacksmith workbench I made recently and it’s various adjustments make it ideal for accurate cuts on cabinet and furniture work. I highly recommend this tool and at around sixty five dollars it is well w...

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick  (Rockler Item# 46987)

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick (Rockler Item# 46987)

1154 days ago by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I am certain most of you either have used these or know about them, but… for those of you who do not: I began using a combination belt / disk sander in my home shop a couple of months ago, so I ordered one of these cleaning sticks soon after since my belt was loading up a bit. When I used it on both the 4” belt and the 8” disk, they were almost instantly de-loaded and restore to like new condition. People, quite frankly I was actually a bit amazed at how well this piece...

Can it get any easier than this??

Can it get any easier than this??

575 days ago by ChuckC | 18 comments »

I always dread the time when I have to sharpen the blades on my jointer. For some reason I can never get the blades back in just right. Rockler put this jig on sale from $33 to $25 so I picked it up. When it arrived I was surprised to find that it is all metal, no plastic, and well made (for what it is). Each leg has two magnets on the out feed side and one that picks up the blade. Using the jig is simple. You have to find TDC for the cutter head and you mark that on the fence. I punche...

Rockler Pen Starter Kit and turning kits

Rockler Pen Starter Kit and turning kits

1840 days ago by USCJeff | 17 comments »

I decided to finally give up my boycott and try my hand at pen making. I didn’t want to become one of those “pen guys”. There are a lot of things you need to get started on pen one. I bought the starter set as it seemed the simplist way to go about it. Having turned a couple pens now, I might have done it differently. The pricing is good considering the a la carte prices of the components. I found, however, I would have opted for different components. The mandrel work...

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

1499 days ago by lilredweldingrod | 17 comments »

I bought the Rockler table saw fence micro adjuster on sale cheap with free shipping. That takes most of the sting out. Every time the handle gets bumped, even slightly, it falls a part. After regluing this cheaply made junk several times, I drilled and install a 8-32 screw and nut and peened the end at the nut to prevent it from backing off. It hasn’t broken since, but I do not leave it on the saw except when I need it. Save your money on this one. I’m sure there ar much better d...

Taper jig for us lazy folks

Taper jig for us lazy folks

2371 days ago by sIKE | 16 comments »

Got this when I was in the Cambridge Rockler store. I had been thinking about making my own but this one is only $15 and I couldn’t pass. It works as designed, both sides of the fence. Some specs from the Rockler site: Cut tapers up to 3’’ per foot/15ยบ slope. Graduated metal scale makes it easy to cut tapers at desired angles. Easy to use and easy to adjust. Offers measurements in degrees and inches per foot of taper. I cut the the piece of red oak in the bottom of th...
