I don’t want to raise a hail storm here but I just wanted to speak my opinion about these bench cookies. These things can’t be that spectacular that they have to be posted EVERYWHERE! Talk about over advertising. I don’t know anything about these, and I don’t care. To be Frank, I won’t purchase them because they’re put in my face to much. You aren’t inventing the wheel, so stop acting like this is some spectacular thing that has to be flaunted like a…..well you get the point.

Keith, you’re right. I actually have a set of these because I was purchasing something else from Rockler and I needed to spend a few more dollars to get free shipping (or something like that). They are kind of handy, but they are pushing them like they’re the greatest invention since sliced bread. Geez… enough already!

I got a set, but I always want to call them bench pucks.

Maybe because of all the hockey interest in this area.

They have many other uses:
Keeping baby’s ass still while change diapers.
A1Jim puts one under each router to keep from moving – he buys pucks in bulk!
CharlieM puts one on his head to hold his hat still
The Grizz actually ate one, but it didn’t go down well.
And Karson uses them to keep his grandkids still when minding them.

Ljs can be very inventive and find alternative uses for anything – take wood and tools for example.

they also make great stress relievers, they bounce quite satisfactorily off the wall when you’re angry….

I thought if I bought a set they would stop advertising them so much. Didn’t work.
