1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt

Put this link belt onto my table saw this morning – it took all of 5 minutes – and am amazed at the difference it made. The saw is now almost totally vibration free and is much quieter too. If your saw vibrates, you need this belt.

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...

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 Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Tablesaw Jig

06-27-2008 05:46 AM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I know allot of you have made your own version of a thin strip ripping jig. I fiddled with making one and was in too much of a hurry to get my project going. I looked at this one online and liked the design and it was only $19.99 with free shipping. As usual Rockler shipped it out right away, and it was on my doorstep 4 days after I ordered it. They also accept Paypal now which is really convenient.It comes with simple instructions on the back of the box. The whole device is made out of pheno...

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

04-15-2011 05:51 AM by BreakingBoardom | 29 comments »

So with money being tight lately and starting to work on some smaller projects, I decided to take the plunge and buy a 10 lbs. box of assorted exotic cutoffs. The reviews on the Rockler site have been mixed with some happy and some unhappy. I guess what it probably boils down to is what your expectations are going in. I was expecting some small pieces of exotic species that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford separately. Others said the boxes were mostly Purpleheart and Padauk wh...

Rockler Table Saw Outfeed Table Needs Help

Rockler Table Saw Outfeed Table Needs Help

06-23-2010 04:45 AM by FJPetruso | 1 comment »

I purchased the Rockler Table Saw Outfeed Table & was pleased…. at first. The initial assembley & set-up wasn’t bad & it worked well. But I soon found that if I used the outfeed table for any thing other than an outfeed table, like an assembly table or what ever, it couldn’t take much weight or vibration or the wood screws that hold the outfeed table to the saw would come loose & the top of the table would drop down some & then be slanted downward towar...

Precise Repeatability for Multiples

Precise Repeatability for Multiples

02-10-2009 09:35 PM by Marco Cecala | 5 comments »

I am currently building a set of 6 Arts & Crafts chairs as designed by Kevin Rodel in FWW. I will be doing a project posting soon, but wanted to recommend a tool that really helped me on this job. In order to reduce individual fitting and trimming of all the joints, it is necessary to make mortises in the same place on each piece. With this jig, it’s easy to do. The tall back leg has 5 mortises, half of them angled. I was able to set up the jig, and place the mortises so the teno...

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

08-24-2011 09:02 PM by Eric_S | 5 comments »

I decided to pick one up from Rockler after Lew’s great review. These things are no joke, a little pricey at ~$20 though. I’ve owned many pizza cutters and most are lightweight, blades wobble, or the blades are just crap. Not to mention that the blade is always off center. This one has none of those issues. Its the heaviest pizza cutter and kitchen utensil I own, solid stainless steel I believe. The blade is in the center with thick rubber or plastic washers on both sides ...

Too much hassle for not enough stability

Too much hassle for not enough stability

08-23-2010 07:01 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I think Rockler Rocks! but with this one – they hit rock bottom. I have seen a friend having issues putting this mobile base together some time ago, and figured it’s not worth the hassle, but came upon one today myself. I picked up a shaper, and the guy (to which I am grateful) threw in this mobile base for free. The Bad!Out of the box (actually even before that) it is stated that you are responsible to providing the lumber which will size the mobile base – no worries,...
