Hamel, MN (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a product that eliminates the need for confusing and complicated sign making jigs. The Interlock Signmaker’s Template, available exclusively at Rockler, is faster, easier and less expensive.
Previously, woodworkers would either have to hand carve (which can take many hours) or use complicated router jigs to create custom wooden signs. With moving parts, clamps and templates, these jigs are time consuming to set up and use.
“Our new Interlock system is made up of interchangeable puzzle pieces.” Says Jim Frey, Product Developer for Rockler, “Just snap them together, tape them down with masking tape, and rout your sign.”
The Interlock system gives woodworkers a lot more flexibility than traditional jigs, allowing for more creativity. For instance, the templates can be set up in arches, stacked designs, circles and more. Plus, they work on nearly any surface—you could even use them on a wall.
“Years ago I bought a sign-making jig,” Rockler customer and woodworker Rick Garrett of Lansing, Michigan says “It’s just a pain to put together. I like to make signs for my family and friends, and with the Interlock system I can just reach in the box, and set up the letters any way I like.”
“If I wanted to make them (custom wood signs) at a craft show,” Garrett said “It is a lot easier to carry my box of templates, a small router, and my bits. Reach in there; grab whatever letters or numbers I need. I want it so I can do it quick.”
The Rockler Interlock Signmaker’s Templates are available in both 2 ¼’’ and 4’’ sizes for both numbers and letters. Each letter kit comes with 40 letters with duplicates of common letters and three spacers.
Each numbers kit includes two sets of 0-9 and nine commonly used symbols including: @ and &. Pricing is $19.99 for the 2 ¼’’ sets, and $29.99 for the 4’’ sets.
The Interlock Signmaker’s Templates are available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers, Rockler.com, or from the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit http://www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER
