Often referred to as the World's Toughest Polymer, Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene is your best material choice for making jigs and fixtures for your table saw, router table, drill press, etc. UHMW is a linear high density polyethylene that's 10x heavier than regular high-density polyethylene giving you a rock-solid base for your jig or fixture. UHMW has a low coefficient of friction and is self-lubricating, making it glide over your work surface with little resistance. Plus, this rugged polymer will last for years, as it is highly resistant to abrasions, chemical-resistant, and maintains its high-impact strength even at low temperatures. 4''W X 24'' L X 3/4'' Thick UHMW Plastic Jig Stock.

UHMW Plastic
Great when making jigs. I used the 3/4 inch size to mount on the scraping edge of my snow blower to avoid damage to my new cement driveway. It works great.

Awesome
This product is perfect wherever you need material strong and slick. These pieces were used as skids under a 300 lb. credenza and they worked perfectly.

This is an excellent product to use for jigs, templates and many other purposes. Everything that I ordered was well packed and perfectly straight.

Good for what it is
Bought it to make runners for a sled for my table saw. It fit perfectly in my miter slots. Just make sure you trim it fast so the heat of the saw blade doesn't warp it.

Buy pre-cut, it's easier!
The material is perfect for making glide track to go inside the mitre channel on table saws (3/8" x 3/4"), but you have to cut or mill this piece to make it work. You can buy this material in 1/2"x3/4"x5' stock from U.S. Plastic, and it is ready to use. Your crosscut sled will sit 1/8" above the table of the saw. If you want it to sit completely flat, I recommend cutting a 3/4" wide dado slot in the bottom of the sled to countersink the material 1/8" lower.

Very good material for fences. Carbide blade on the saw had no problems. But be careful if you try to joint it. I was trying to mill a runner for a jig, I had my jointer set for too aggressive a cut and it jammed the cutterhead so hard that the outfeed table cracked from the shock. Game over for that jointer.They make bullet-proof vests out of this stuff so be careful.

No problems at all. Product came straight and clean. I had a problem with a Rockler order once and they resolved it very quickly. I was on the phone with them for only 30 seconds. No issues.

As previous reviewers have commented, my 4/3" UHMW section came warped as well. However, I was surprised to see that I could easily bend it back into shape and it has remained perfectly straight ever since. So before you call Rockler to complain, I would definitely attempt placing the warped section of the board over the corner of your workbench and pushing it back into shape first. It worked for me.

Replace fence on Jet compound Miter saw because the fence cannot be adjusted square to blade and that is important to me.

Does anyone have experience using this with a Dewalt DW745 table saw? The miter slots are 3/4" wide x 3/8" deep. I'm trying to decide if it's better to use the 3/4" UHMW for the width and trim it for the 3/8" deep, OR use the 3/8" UHMW for the depth and trim it for 3/4" width. Did that make sense?
Jason F on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the key dimension is the 3/4" wide slot the UHMV needs to be snug the but not tight to this dimension- the 3/8" depth does not matter much. My guess is that you'll need to trim both dimensions regardless of which one you buy.
is the surface smooth? no milling marks
Michael K on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No further work on surface is needed. I used my piece as a fence for a table saw. It works very well. Makes easy to make sure the wood is tight against the fence.
Is it safe for water tanks with fish?
