Afordable floating tenon with the Rockler Beadlock system.

02-15-2019 09:25 AM by Armoredduck | 4 comments »

Been using Dowels for a while and wanted to try another system. Was debating on getting the Pro system but wanted to test out the smaller one 1st. Tested it out on a small project 1st(Picture Frame) and I have to say I really like it so far. Having the Kreg clamp is really helpful for speeding things up. One suggestion I would tell anyone if they want to get one it to use a red pencil. Its so much easier to see the lines when you are marking your pieces. I also think on some projects it may b...

Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

Rockler Fence Flip Stop Does Not Work

01-21-2019 10:08 PM by CaptainKlutz | 11 comments »

Summary: This flip stop is not accurate or repeatable, purchase not recommended. It only earns 1 star, due fact that you can still use it a little (and forums won’t let me use zero star).You can tighten the flip stop bolt snug and at least use it as fixed stop that doesn’t flip – you have to remove it when you don’t want to use it. :-( Bought the #53648 Rockler Drill Press Fence awhile back, and it came with this flip stop. I almost never use the flip stop on d...

4" PVC Pipe to 4" Dust Collection Hose

4" PVC Pipe to 4" Dust Collection Hose

04-01-2018 03:11 PM by copythat | 12 comments »

I made my own inexpensive dust collection system using 4” PVC sewer pipe and fittings from Lowe’s. The parts were a fraction of the cost of true dust collection ducting and fittings. The one issue I had was that the diameter of the sewer pipe I used was too narrow to get a nice fit for the flexible drop down dust hose. To solve the problem, I invested in Dust Right transitions and they fit perfectly. Although pricey at $15 each, I thought they were money well spent.

Noteworthy parts used on my INCRA router table cabinet . . .

Noteworthy parts used on my INCRA router table cabinet . . .

02-19-2018 05:01 AM by copythat | 6 comments »

I used Rockler’s 4” and 2-1/2” Keyed Bridge Hose Clamps on my router table cabinet and they are fantastic. They sit in the spiral of the hose with no awkward positioning over the wire that spirals through the hose. They are a great improvement over standard hose clamps. The 4” can be found here: http://www.rockler.com/4-keyed-bridge-hose-clampsThe 2-1/2” can be found here: http://www.rockler.com/2-1-2-keyed-bridge-hose-clamps I also used Rockler’s...

Expandable hose works well, is awkward to store

Expandable hose works well, is awkward to store

12-20-2017 07:03 AM by leftcoaster | 1 comment »

I got this hose to use with the collection of tools for which I don’t have dedicated blast gates. The hose works great. It’s easy to extend and does what it is supposed to do. What’s less awesome is “how do I store this thing without it spilling all over the place?” Well, I came up with a solution. You can see it here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/252057#reply-4284593

Useless with Triton TRA-001

Useless with Triton TRA-001

02-07-2017 06:21 PM by eldercop | 19 comments »

For $60 one would think Rockler would include all the necessary holes. Not so. Catalog, web site and sales person identify this aluminum plate (#59466) as suitable for Triton’s big bad boy. Get it home and there’s no hole for height winder. A call back to the store where the helpful guy opened two other boxes with same item and same story. He kicks the issue up to the assistant manager whom I call back a couple days later and he is less than helpful. “So drill a hole for it ...

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

Nice template sort of. Waiting on support....

04-08-2016 08:40 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

I got a Rockler Gift card for Christmas this past year (yay!), which means I finally had no excuse to not buy the State Park Font template set I have been wanting. And for the most part it was exactly what I was expecting. HOWEVER two issues… #1. Do NOT use the tempate in the manner shown by Rockler. Your router base WILL hang on it, and if you give too much pressure it can hop up and ram the bit through whatever is in the way. #2. The brass bushing that came with mine is defectiv...

Finger Joint Jig Hack

Finger Joint Jig Hack

Just bought this Jig and Tried it Yesterday for the first time, Joint came out really nice. I watched a few Videos and READ the Directions First. Only thing that needed help was once on the Router table and adjusted, I could not get to the Adjustment hole for my router. I needed to raise the bit a little and had to remove the jig,adjust the bit then Re-adjust the finger joint jig before Starting. Did a little research last night and this was suggested! DUH! (slaps Forehead!) used a pi...

Great starter set into turning

Great starter set into turning

12-01-2015 02:21 PM by jshroyer | 4 comments »

My roommate and i have had a lathe for around a year now and only had the old tools that came with it. they were not very good and we didnt use it much because its a bit much to start with. i had been reading about carbide tools for some time but the cost it what kept me away. I saw the rockler set was on sale for $100 over the US thanksgiving weekend so thought it might be worth the try. I am very impressed already! so much easier to use! Other item that people talk about is how you cant sha...
