Stumpy Nubs Entertaining Review: Rockler Bench Cookies & Accessories P1

04-10-2013 01:16 PM by StumpyNubs | 8 comments »

We are producing a new video series which takes the concept of tool reviews and adds a bit of “info-tainment”. No, this isn’t a song and dance kind of thing, it’s a serious tool review, done in a not so serious way. I love to watch tool reviews, but I rarely watch a review just for the sake of watching. I hope this new format changes all of that! You may already own the tools, you may not care about them. But the videos themselves are worth watching! Anywho- The fol...

Mostly does what they claim

Mostly does what they claim

I picked up one of these over the weekend, and am pretty much pleased with it. The current price ($3.99) is introductory, so grab ‘em while they’re cheap. Pros: Currently dirt cheap for what they do. They pretty much do what they’re advertised to do. So-so While waiting for it to dry, it does drip. Easily solved with a bit of scrap or blue tape to catch the drips, but forewarned is forearmed. Cleanup is not quite as easy as advertised. After the glue dried...

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

Rockler's Concealed Hinge

03-13-2011 07:06 AM by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

I purchased some of these so that I could finish my upper shop cabinets. The hinges didn’t come with installation instruction but an email to Rockler’s Tech Support got me a PDF of “installation instructions” in about 2 days. The instructions are vague but there was enough information so that I could suss out how to install them. They really don’t tell you the set back for the hinges and where to pre-drill so I installed a set into some scrap to get the correc...

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

I really like these little diamond hones for sharpening carbide router bits. Just a few strokes on the back, flat edge of your bits will restore a sharp edge. Comes with three grits. This can save you money and avoid throwing away dull bits, or worse yet ruining expensive lumber.Worth a try.

rockler bench cookies

rockler bench cookies

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the rockler bench cookies. Now I got some of these about 4 weeks ago and they work pretty good. I have used them when I was sanding and the one thing I realized is that anything that is smaller than 8 in long and 7 in wide its a lot harder to control. You can get 4 bench cookies for $12 at rockler.com

I saw a lot of press about these online as I’m sure that many of you have. I was at Rockler one day picking up some other things and I picked these up also just to check them out. I used them for the first time yesterday and I was really impressed. I was working on a 40” x 8” board so I put a bench cookie in each of the corners. I was able to use a random orbit sander and a belt sander with no problems at all. I’ll admit that I was nervous when I first set the belt ...

Smooth Square, Great Price

Smooth Square, Great Price

05-05-2010 12:02 AM 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,...

Rockler Sure-Loc Miter Guage With Fence & Stop

Dead on accurate out of the box if your miter slots are parallel with the saw blade. Easy to assemble and adjust. Price paid: $101.49 ( included shipping ) Would I buy another: No, spend the extra money and get a better quality solution or build you own. I’m going to replace the fence with a shop built. Rockler Link Improvements needed:Option for a fence extension.Flip stop instead of a wood sliding stop.Drop in miter bar style instead of a bar style forcing you to slide...

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....

Handy Self-Adhesive Discs - Discontinued Item

09-22-2012 04:30 PM by DeLayne Peck | 12 comments »

As a “back-in-the-day” woodworker, I was always annoyed with carpet tape. Too thick, too much stick, and too much residue. But, that is what we had. Turners’ tape? Don’t know much about it. But, on a whim, I tossed Rockler's Double-Sided Self-Adhesive Discs into the My Cart with an order. Ho-hum, they arrived, but now, Wow. I have been on a jig building kick lately. I can say the little sticky stinkers have ridden over, under, around, and through almost eve...
