Rockler Bench Cookies - Worth the Money

Rockler Bench Cookies - Worth the Money

07-27-2009 04:14 AM by Greg Wurst | 14 comments »

I see I’ve been beaten to the punch on the review, but I’ll go ahead and add my 2 cents worth here. I was at Rockler this weekend and noticed they had these in stock; so I forked-over my $12 and bought a set. As you probably know by now, these are plastic pucks with what is essentially router pad material on both sides. They grip tenaciously, and with any moderate downward pressure will hold your workpiece in place. For any large panel or heavy object these worked great....

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...

My shopvac thanks me

My shopvac thanks me

12-21-2011 10:53 PM by live4ever | 6 comments »

I recently bit on Rockler’s sale on the Dust Right Vortex. I figured it was time to add a separator to my little Fein shopvac, considering I use the vac for all my shop’s dust collection (TS, BS, router table, drum sander, planer, etc.). I have the small model (Turbo I), so you can imagine how quickly it fills up. Up to this point, I was using it with the stock 5 micron cloth bag filter. The DR Vortex is simply a 10 gallon bucket that comes with a lid (the money part), 5 cas...

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 Auto-Lock T-Track Clamps

Rockler's new Auto-Lock T-Track Clamps

09-18-2014 04:18 AM by timbertailor | 12 comments »

As some of you may already know, I recently built an assembly table (32” x 48”) using dual purpose track. I needed more clamps (who doesn’t?) to provide proper coverage of the large surface area and saw the new AutoLock T Track clamps in Rockler’s catalog. I watched a few product demonstration videos and decided to give them a try. What a great design. The large wheel makes tightening in position a breeze with plenty of leverage to hand tighten in position. Anoth...

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

09-10-2011 10:59 AM by David Grimes | 14 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 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...

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.

Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

09-27-2013 05:21 AM 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 ...

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 ...
