I’m going to be in Denver next week, and coincidentally, my hotel is about a mile from the Rockler store on S. Colorado Ave. I’ll have all morning Thursday to mess around before I head back. I’ll be driving a pickup truck. So, any advice on what I should grab?

I realize this question is vague and overly broad. Let’s narrow it down. What does Rockler have that nobody else does? What do they sell that’s a bargain if you can pick it up in person, but isn’t if you have to have it shipped? Right now I’m putting together a dust collection system, then it’s on to shop organization and storage. What “need” do I have at this stage that Rockler can meet best?

I really like their racking components. I bought the clamp rack a while back- really nice. Also, router tables, drill press table. Anything bulky, like DC hose and fittings would be a good choice. Heck, just load up your truck with all the goodies!

Take money- you’ll need lots!!!

Make sure to bring 1 empty suit case to fit it all in. Just make sure to get that case to the shop before you get caught.

I will send you a PM with my address and a list of things to get for me (LOL). I find that the little things (accessories) are valuable purchases.
