Dust Collector Remote Switch from Rockler ON SALE

Dust Collector Remote Switch from Rockler ON SALE

06-29-2010 08:00 PM by los | 22 comments »

Fellow Jocks, saw this remote switch on sale at Rockler for $45 marked down from $72(on sale on the web, just tell the retail guy and they will look it up). I had a gift card and picked one up. Set it up in my basement shop and worked like a charm. Now I dont have to move tools around to reach the DC switch.

Great Router Table You Can Grow Into!

Great Router Table You Can Grow Into!

02-29-2008 11:07 PM by Hawgnutz | 7 comments »

One of the great attributes of this router table over many others, is the availablity of quality accessories at a reasonable cost. Rockler stocks a complete line of accessories for their table, including the Incra precision router fence. The Incra fence is one of the primary reasons I chose the Rockler table. It goes on easy and was designed fror this particular table top. This table top comes with an insert of 1/4” aluminum pre-drilled for many different routers. If your router ...

Move over Big Foot...The Rockler All-Terrain Mobile Base Rules the Shop!

Move over Big Foot...The Rockler All-Terrain Mobile Base Rules the Shop!

07-02-2009 04:02 AM by Andy Brownell | 7 comments »

I recently broke down and dropped some cash ($180) for this new product from Rockler. My shop space is limited and I have little space to move around my table saw. The parts are gigantic, and almost over the top, but in a good way. The wheels, thickness of steel and bolts are all over-sized. Assembly was so easy, there were no instructions…It can accommodate for just about any standard sized piece of small shop equipment, but it offers some extension sets (longer metal bars) to allow fo...

Rockler's New Silicone Glue Brush is it worth the price?

Rockler's New Silicone Glue Brush is it worth the price?

05-01-2012 06:30 AM by thedude50 | 26 comments »

Your shop is probably filled with tools or accessories that you use all the time but never really give them much thought, I know mine is. Today we will take a look at one of those tools; The glue brush. For years we have all used those little disposal acid brushes costing about 20 cents a piece. They work fine, so why change it? Well unless you spend the time washing them and picking out the dried glue bits, you throw them away just like I do. The first thing to consider is simply the cost...

Clamps for glue edge boards

Clamps for glue edge boards

06-20-2013 09:48 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I do a lot of glue edge board glue-ups and was looking for a better and faster clamping system. My old one required four hand clamps and 4 cauls and did a fine job but the set up was very time consuming. After receiving some money for father’s day, I decided to give these a try. I must admit the guys at the local Rockler store were not helpful with any recommendations on the product. Also, at least my box came with NO instructions at all. Now I did have in mind what I wanted to accomplish ...

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

09-10-2011 10:59 AM by David Grimes | 13 comments »

This is a Rockler product that is well made and does exactly what it says it will do. It’s about $20 if you get it at regular price. I have used it on two occasions to rip several 1/8” strips to face the front of birch plywood wall shelves. Tonight the strips were from a drop of Poplar that otherwise would have been used as a bunch of stirring sticks on its way to the burn pile. I got three 1/8” x 96” pieces from the 3/4” x 5/8” x 96” I started ...

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

Rockler Table saw fence micro adjuster

07-16-2010 02:30 AM 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...

Rockler Trim Router Table

Rockler Trim Router Table

02-24-2014 08:47 PM 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...

Rockler Lathe Dust Hood Item 67899

Rockler Lathe Dust Hood Item 67899

11-16-2009 03:10 AM by FJPetruso | 3 comments »

I’ve found this clear lathe dust collection hood very useful. It take a little bit of planning when setting it up on a lathe such as extending the tail stock support out to make room for your tool rest support and it helps a lot to have a flexible work light that can be kept low & to the rear of the lathe. This keeps the glare off of the flip-down clear shield making it easy to use, see photo. I made a wooden bracket out of the scrap end of an oak newel post, also see photo. The...

Still the best buy in sharpening!

Still the best buy in sharpening!

08-07-2013 01:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 12 comments »

This jig was invented by a pure genius. I don’t know who he (or she) was, but whoever made it was sharper than a stropped chisel. There is no brand name on the thing, and lots of places sell it. I got mine from Rockler for $16 bucks and when you compare it to the other jigs out there, it’s a steal for all that it can do. Here’s a little video about it: Here's a great article about how to tune it up. (For more entertaining reviews and, of course new episodes of Blu...
