Not bad - Not Good.

Tried the 10.99 spray bottle from Rockler. I’ve got to say the Pitch wiped right off. What I liked: No harsh chemicals. Used unprotected hands. (There is an allergy warning on the bottle and ingesting the fluid calls for a trip to the ER.” Product has a citrus smell similar to fast orange hand cleaner. Works well on Pitch.Don’t need wire brushes. The video shows me using 0000 steel wool but a washcloth did just as well What was so-so. Limited Window to clean blades....

Great Guide

Great Guide

2232 days ago by John Gray | 10 comments »

I have the 50” model of this All-In-One Clamp Guide and love it. It’s really nice to use when breaking down a 4’x8’ piece of sheet goods without having to manhandle it up on the table saw. I cut them up right on the tailgate of my pickup before they come into the shop. You don’t have to have the Saw Plate just hold the saw firmly against the guide. When you “set it up” for your circular saw Sharpie the offset between the blade and the saw’s shoe and you’ll not ...

Smooth Square, Great Price

Smooth Square, Great Price

1541 days ago by PurpLev | 10 comments »

not much to say. good square, and can be had for a bargain price. I was using Empire combo squares (12” and 6”) since they were cheap (less than $10 each) at HD. I found them to be as precise as the next square, but the locking and the sliding of the ruler left a lot to be desired. I eventually replaced them both with Starrett equivalent which I found to be as precise, but made of heavier materials, and with higher precision in the machining which means smoother sliding action,...

For the production of architraves in my house I recently decided to pick up a cove cutting jig on sale at rockler. This is a video review of the product. I’ll let the video speak and not repeat everything here. If it works for me it can work for anyone. Thanks for watching.

Cookies in the shop . . . mmmm.

Cookies in the shop . . . mmmm.

601 days ago by ic3ss | 10 comments »

So, I’ve been eyeing these silly things for about two years now wondering how would I use them and would it really be worth having. Well, I finally picked up a set at Rockler on sale for $8 last week and decided to use them for finishing a top to an end table. My old Unisaw serves double duty as a workbench/finish assembly talbe in my garage so I put down newspaper and the table top sits on the cookies. What I noticed was now nice it is to lay down wipe on poly on the surface and just ...

Rockler Pencil Set

Rockler Pencil Set

329 days ago by C_PLUS_Woodworker | 10 comments »

I am not trying to fuel the never-ending debate on marking devices…...pencils, marking knives, scalpels, etc But, I ordered 3 of these Rockler Lead Holders……Rockler calls them “Cabinet Maker Pencil Sets….. and I really like them I am now down to using just two marking devices (not including marking gauges)….just pencil-type stuff. I either use these Rockler Lead Holders…..or I use the pocket knife with the disposable blade…..and then I can go as light or as deep as I want an...

A must have glue accessory

A must have glue accessory

72 days ago by Crickett | 10 comments »

No matter how silly it seems, perhaps one of my absolute favorite tools in my shop is one of the smallest and cheapest. I recently purchased Rocklers silicone glue kit complete with a silicone brush, silicone rake/comb, and a silicone tray. I also purchased separately the silicone dowell applicators. In my opinion, anything that increases my efficiency, reduces cost, and saves materials is something to at least consider. We all use glue on nearly every project, and most of us in the past use...

Rockler's Tape Keeps Things Stuck!

Rockler's Tape Keeps Things Stuck!

2304 days ago by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I don’t know about anyone else, but I find new uses for double-sided tape nearly every time I am in the shop. I have been using Rockler’s Turner’s Two-Way Tape for a couple of months now and have been very impressed. It sticks tenaciously and I haven’t had any two parts I have joined slip when template routing or aligning for installation. I sometimes wonder if I actually need screws and glue with this stuff. 1 inch wide, 25 yards I gave it four stars because som...

Shark Pro CNC Router

Shark Pro CNC Router

1685 days ago by Mike Pientka | 9 comments »

When the Shark was initially released, I traveled 70 miles to the nearest Rockler store to scrutinize it. I had to put my Engineer’s cap on to keep remembering there are continual tradeoffs between cost and performance; from all the homework I did I knew what specs were important and where I could give. At first I was apprehensive the polymer frame would flex too much. or the rod & linear bearing construction with a central drive screw would bind. Both of these turned out to be no...

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

940 days ago by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...
