Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

929 days ago by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...

My shopvac thanks me

My shopvac thanks me

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...

Rockler Fluting Jig. It works

Rockler Fluting Jig. It works

1016 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

Saddled with the idea of making fluted casings for a bedroom and eventually for the rest of the house, I decided to splurge and pick up Rockler’s fluting jig. I must say that after a little practice on some scrap to get used to it then finishing off a bedroom, it works nicely. The Jig is well made. It is constructed of phenol ply and has knobs to tighten and adjust that have metal inserts. To make a flute you set your router in it and adjust the jig so that two rails ride on both si...

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

Rockler Thin Rip Table Saw Jig

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 ...

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

1053 days ago 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 ...

For The Pizza Lover

For The Pizza Lover

1078 days ago by lew | 15 comments »

If you are looking for a nice project for the pizza lover in your family, this is it! Extremely well made, heavy- 12.5 ounces (without the handle), sharp, and the blade is mounted on the axle so there is absolutely no “wobble”. The cutter also includes a threaded insert for the handle- so the handle can be removed and the cutter place in the dishwasher-and an allen wrench to help thread the insert into your handle. The instructions are well written, including tips on how to get the inse...

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

1084 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

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 Abrasive Cleaning Stick  (Rockler Item# 46987)

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick (Rockler Item# 46987)

I am certain most of you either have used these or know about them, but… for those of you who do not: I began using a combination belt / disk sander in my home shop a couple of months ago, so I ordered one of these cleaning sticks soon after since my belt was loading up a bit. When I used it on both the 4” belt and the 8” disk, they were almost instantly de-loaded and restore to like new condition. People, quite frankly I was actually a bit amazed at how well this piece...

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

Rockler Exotic Cutoffs 10 lbs. Assortment

1184 days ago 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...
