Rockler Router Bit and Saw Blade Cleaning Kit

Let's face it, no woodworker particularly enjoys cleaning saw blades or router bits, so the easier we can make it, the better. This kit does just that, combining an extremely effective saw blade cleaning solution with two conveniently-sized containers that allow you to soak your blades and bits and let the blade cleaner do the brunt of the work for you. A brass brush is also included to whisk away the more stubborn particles. With clean, cool-running cutters, you'll get more precise cuts, a longer cutter life and spend far less on sharpening costs.

Features:
  • The jumbo sized "blade bath" features a raised inner ring, which prevents the blade from suctioning to the bottom
  • 14" inside diameter accepts a 12" blade with plenty of room at the edges for easy removal
  • Kit includes 14" plastic blade bath with lid, 1 quart (makes 1 gallon) of Pitch and Resin Remover-a highly effective saw blade cleaner-brass-bristled scrub brush and a 6 oz. plastic jar with lid for cleaning router bits

(1) 14" blade bath with lid
(1) Quart of Pitch and Resin Remover (makes 1 gallon)
(1) Brass-bristled scrub brush
(1) 6 oz. plastic jar with lid for cleaning router bits

Works great
Works exactly as advertised - I let my blades soak for ~5 minute and then scrub right in Big Blue. It gets months of resin off blades and helps my saws from having to work too hard, great stuff.

Cleaned the blade right up
I was surprised at how readily it allowed me to brush off the residue on the blades. Made a big difference in cutting.

Would Definitely Reccomend
I didn't realize how much of a difference simply cleaning a blade could make. I inherited an old Craftsman 315 Table Saw from my grandfather and on it was a Forrest WWII blade. It was burning the cuts pretty bad so I decided to give it a shot and the blade looks brand new and cuts so much better! I ended up cleaning all of my blades and couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Blade Cleaning kit.
Works as expected. Currently saved my last batch of cleaning solution to use again. Make sure the lid is seated properly. Due to the size, the plastic tub is a little flimsy. Cleaned the gunk/pitch well with a little elbow grease. Also did a decent job on some 50 year old steel plywood blade tarnish. Didn't do well on an old Bosch blade; mostly rust from poor storage. The brush that came with the unit is holding up so far.

Have used this product in the past. It is a shop necessity. Clean and sharp tools are a must. Like my old Amish mentor said "a sharp tool won't cut you"

I've used Rockler brand products in the past and they all worked well. While this is the first time ordering this item, I've heard a lot of good reviews about the product and the importance of cleaning my saw blades/router bits. I'm tired of purchasing so many blades and didn't realize all they might need was a good cleaning of the pitch residue. Hopefully this kit will do the trick.

It is hard to find reliable sharpening services, so making the most of your blades makes way too much sense. I read the reviews on this product and determined that it was suitable to my needs.

My table saw blade is still sharp but it is starting to leave burn marks because of the pitch build up on the teeth. This item will allow me to quickly clean my blade and get back to smooth cuts.

Thomas H on Sep 10, 2019
185 reviews and almost every one says: "Cover won't stay on" or "Cover pops off" or "Cover won't go on." Why would Rockler keep selling to new, unwitting customers a product that has an obvious problem? Also .... the brass brush falls apart quickly. Most users report it lasting only one cleaning (if that) before it's trash. Come on Rockler ... don't you read the reviews? Can you not fix the problem? It's sad that over 100 users tell you of 2 obvious problems over the span of a few years and you just seem to ignore them. Also .... a few users had excellent ideas on how to improve the experience (a "bolt" in the middle to allow the blade to turn when cleaning, for instance). We know you can do better, Rockler.

How do you keep the lid from opening up? I reseal the lid and it pops up.
William B on Sep 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When I put the lid on I seal it all the way around, then pull up slightly on the pull tab while pushing down firmly on the center to push the air out, ...like tupperware. Never had the lid pop off, even when moving it from workbench to shelf.
Do you ship your products to a home address?
A shopper on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes we do.
Do I have to take the bearing off of my router bits first?
Steve on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you do have to remove the bearing.
You don't want to get your bearing wet. If your bearing is dirty wipe it with a rag dampened with solvent then add a drop of oil on the shield side of bearing.
How long can you keep the mixture? Should it be disposed of after initial blade cleaning, or does it keep for a later use?
Ted K on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used mine twice cleaning 3 10" blades. Will try using it again.
Might add a small amount of fresh cleaner to the old. Did filter it after
the first time.
