Over the weekend, we asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook what would be their most-wanted Rockler item this holiday season, and we'd like to share with you, their families and friends (hint, hint!) what they came up with!
First off: the top two wished-for items for those who were dreamin' really big were the Powermatic 16" Jointer (kind of the mother of all jointers, with all the bells and whistles), and an unspecified planer. I picked a middle-of-the-line Powermatic Planer as an example, (although this, too, has plenty of bells and whistles).
On (perhaps) a more realistic gift-giving level, the top two most-mentioned items overall were these:
CNC Shark Pro Routing System
As the bigger brother to the original CNC Shark™, the diversely capable CNC Shark Pro™ offers twice the workable area and increased strength, making it perfect for a wide variety of larger machining, routing, and engraving projects in wood, metal, or plastic.
Rockler Bench Cookie™ Work Grippers
With high-friction rubber surfaces and a durable core, award-winning Bench Cookie™ Work Grippers are the most exciting, versatile accessory to hit wood shops in years. They keep projects from slipping while routing, sanding, carving and more.
The remainder of the Top 12 Most Wished-For Items, in no particular order, are:
- Excelsior Mini-Lathe
- Band Saw (specifically one that can handle re-sawing)
- Rockler Router Table
- Rockler Pack Rack™ Clamp and Tool Storage System
- Bench Dog Baltic Birch Router Cabinet
- Dust Collector, Delta, for example
- Festool Domino Joiner
- Beech Wood Work Bench
