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

Carbide bits and saw blades cut best when clean . This solvent does a great job of cleaning cutting edges. I reuse it over and over again with good success.

I'm happy with this cleaning kit. I've not been good about cleaning my saw blades in the past, so I don't have anything to compare this with. It cleaned my blades effectively.

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.
Does the solvent damage the anti friction coatings on blades?
Gus2259 on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I've used the cleaning kit on my Forrest II combo blade several times as well as a Freud saw blade and it cleaned the pitch off and did not interfere with either blade's performance. I also cleaned several router bits and they made much cleaner cuts after a good overnight soak in the product to clean up the difficult areas to brush or get a towel into. The Freud blade is red in color and stayed red on the saw blade so it must have the anti friction coating in that color?
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.
