We’ve written about all of these components individually, but Rockler has a deal on right now combining three of Bench Dog’s saw safety products bundled together into a single easy-to-order package. For $25, you get the Dog’s slick little push stick, their push block, and “Feather-Loc” — a device that keeps stock pressed tight around your saw’s fence to minimize kickback.

I’ve been in the shop with heavy-duty projects the entire week, working with long boards on both the miter saw and table saw. My roller stand has been uber-handy, but a second one would be even better. Looking around a little, I found this Fliptop roller buy Rockler that has ball bearings on the top.

With the first project effort behind me, I went looking for a second small craft item to turn on the Delta lathe. There are about a thousand great projects to do, but I was looking for something with a little flair. Luckily, a trip to the local Rockler store never fails to provide. There, my dad and I found a pizza-cutter kit on sale for $15 and a bit of olive wood — just the thing we needed.

Stopping by Rockler in my family is a little like sending grown men into a money hole. We normally go in pairs to keep the other one from spending the grocery money on rare woods and tools. On this occasion, it was even worse, as the local shop in nearby Richardson was holding CNC routing and turning demonstrations. After drooling over the displays and checking out a few demos, the paternal unit and I stumbled across Rockler’s excellent pizza-cutting kit that features a large steel-cutting roller and mounting hardware. All you need to do is supply a handle.

You hardcore woodworking guys probably already know about these, but I thought I’d mention these for all of you in the same boat as me. (I’m usually late to the party on this kind of stuff.) Ever find yourself digging around the shop looking for something to stick under a project to hold it up/steady while you work on it? The trick, of course, is finding something that’s just the right size and shape but also won’t mar the work (or your bench, if you have a fancy one). As usual, Rockler has something to fill the bill: bench cookies. They’re little hockey puck-sized holders with rubber pads on the top and bottom to make ‘em grippy.

That handles the “steady” part of the equation, but what about the “up” part, especially with weird-shaped objects? Well, it turns out that Rocker also offers a “cookie cone” — a little cone-shaped cover that slips over the top of the cookies to make them into little triangular, pointed workstands.

You know you should be wearing hearing protection in the shop, but you don’t want to stop what you’re doing just to grab it. Do this enough times, and you might find yourself asking why everybody has started mumbling.

To avoid becoming one of 15% of the adult population with noise-induced hearing loss, you might benefit from 3M’s NI-100 Noise Indicator. Accurate to 3dB, the noise indicator flashes red every second when noise levels rise above 85 dBA (the dB limit where hearing protection is recommended) — and flashes green every second when the noise level is below 85dBA. If it isn’t flashing, either you forgot to turn it on or the battery is dead.

Good Forstner bits can be expensive; you don’t want to just chuck them out when they get dull. You could bring them in to be sharpened, or you could do it yourself with a few simple tools that you can acquire separately or buy in a kit from several different retailers.

A few weeks ago I posted a neat, yet overly expensive solution for collecting dust from under the router table. It turns out I overlooked a cheaper solution if you have a Rockler or JessEm router plate or lift.

The Rockler Down Under Router Table Dust Port simply twists and locks into the bottom of their new Inter-Loc router plate inserts — no tools required. If you’re not using a lift, it’ll fit through the opening of most router bases.

The color wheel will tell you how to mix the color using standard liquid dyes, powder dyes, or liquid stains in the following colors: white, raw umber, french yellow ochre, burnt sienna, cordovan, burnt umber, raw sienna, black, yellow, green, red, and orange.

The track saw has matured from its humble beginnings as circular saw with a straightedge to being called a table saw replacement by some companies. That doesn’t ring true to me, because a table saw is much more than a tool for working with sheet goods. It seems to me that track saws are more of a replacement for the bulky panel saw lurking in the shadows of the shop.
