Rockler Pencil Set

Rockler Pencil Set

08-29-2013 02:20 AM 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.

08-19-2013 03:00 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 11 comments »

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....

Almost Magical

Almost Magical

The Rockler Locking Miter bit for 3/4” stock really impressed me. I took the time to joint and plane the stock to uniform thickness. I butted the two edges together (as if I was making a table top) to make sure the edges were straight. A few small test boards is all it took to get good fitting, tight joints. In fact I was surprised how snug the fit was. It creates a perfect friction fit, that will stay together – even before the glue is added. The interlocking parts seem to ...

Still the best buy in sharpening!

Still the best buy in sharpening!

08-07-2013 01:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 11 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...

Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

07-05-2013 03:49 PM by Daris | 2 comments »

If you don’t have a drill press, (or even if you do) the Jig It Drill Guide by Rocker is a great little jig. For those who don’t have a drill press but want to use forstner bits; the drill guide helps keep your power drill steady allowing for more precise holes. For those who do have a drill press there are certain times when it’s just not possible to use it. I needed to drill some bench dog holes into my workbench. I wanted to use a forstner bit with my power drill. The Jig It Drill G...

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 ...

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

06-10-2013 02:45 AM by Denco | 8 comments »

I bought a Rockler glue brush and it works great, just as advertised. When the glue dries, you can peel it off. Easy to clean, spreads well. However….I was in the dollar store one day and they had Betty Crocker basting brushes….for a buck each. My curiosity got the best of me (you know where I’m going with this). I decided to do a comparison….head to head….for the title of “Best Glue Brush”. I trimmed the Betty Crocker brush so the bristles (?) ar...

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

05-01-2013 11:17 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

We did a whole series of episodes on Blue Collar Woodworking about the importance of fine dust collection. Our solution was a homemade cyclone and six inch duct work. But I am also a realist. I know not everybody has the room or the budget for a system like that. A lot of shops are mobile and the dust collection has to be easy to swap between machines. So I did some testing and I think the Rockler Dust Right system is the best option for a number of reasons. The following three video revie...

Stumpy Nubs Entertaining Review: Rockler Bench Cookies & Accessories P1

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...

NOTE: This is part TWO of this review. I couldn’t seem to post four videos on one review page. Please see part ONE here before viewing part two. The third video features the sawhorse clip attachments… And finally the finishing cone accessories… Now, in case you didn’t get it from the videos, here’s my written review of the Bench Cookies and Accessories: I love these little hockey pucks, and not just because they have the word “cookie” ...
