Got the new Rockler’s catalog yesterday. After looking through it, I realized that there are NO handtools listed. No planes, chisels, or any hand-powered tools. Guess I won’t have any need for their catalog anymore.

They don’t list everything they carry in those catalogs. You can still get those things on their website.

Catalogs are getting more and more expensive; thank goodness for the internet and websites.

To be honest, Rockler never had much in the way of that stuff anyway. Woodcraft was always the better of the two for hand tools. I much prefer Lee Valley or Tools for working Wood over both of them for hand tools, though.

I guess I have always looked at Rockler as a “gadget” distributor. Not that, that is bad, just not the place I would look to for quality planes or chisels.

I get a fair amount of oddball hardware from them too.
