A little history. About 5 years ago I bought a mini bench top router table from Rockler. After two moves and some mishaps the mdf subfences were ruined so I needed new ones. I didn’t want to make my own so I contacted Rockler to see if I could order these parts. Rockler answered my email promptly with the information that they didn’t make that size anymore but that the longer ones for their regular table would fit, but would stick out at the sides a bit. And they asked what m...

Almost a really good clamp

Almost a really good clamp

95 days ago by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I recieved these clamps as part of a Mini Clamp-It set with two of the assembly squares which work really well and 4 of these clamps. I’ve had them for a little over a year and up until recently I really liked them. About a month back I was using them and as I tightened them down I noticed that the threads on the clamp were all bottomed out but they weren’t tight. That was funny I thought and then I noticed that the head was coming off of all of them. The flaw on these clamps is t...

A must have glue accessory

A must have glue accessory

110 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 Trim Router Table

Rockler Trim Router Table

186 days ago by redryder | 6 comments »

I purchased this Trim Router Table last December. For me it has proved more useful than I expected. I can set it up pretty much anywhere I want. In the shop, outside or anywhere with power. It tears down as fast as it goes up. Two clamps and dust collection if you want. I am not a fan of hard edges on wood so I have used it mostly but not exclusively with a roundover bit attached. It is meant for smaller projects and not something like large panels. I compare it to my small band...

Many times more useful than I expected.  Weight your uses to figure out if a-la-carte works better

I purchased this Rockler Bench Cookie set as an impulse buy about a year ago. This purchase has proven to be my best impulse buy to date. Everyone in my family loves using the bench cookies, including the wifey and my 2 year old daughter who keeps trying to steal them, so she can do curls. I’m going to split my review into the 4 components. What I will say, is that while the set is awesome, if you find you only want the cookies and/or the cones (like me), you may be better off buying...

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

208 days ago by Brett | 9 comments »

Have you ever noticed holes , neatly in a row, on the inside of many book cases and cabinets? Have you ever wondered how they might have gotten them so straight, and evenly spaced? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. I never really gave it much thought until I decided that I may want to attempt to build something that needed some adjustable shelving. This jig is one way that a do-it-yourselfer may be able to add those adjustable shelves to your project! It is a shelf pin drillin...

Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

337 days ago by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...

Rockler Pencil Set

Rockler Pencil Set

366 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...

Not bad - Not Good.

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....
