Hamel, MN (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Rockler has just introduced new versions of their highly successful Bench Cookie work grippers, the hockey-puck-like tools that eliminate the need for clamps: Bench CookieTM Plus - designed to give extra clearance for sawblades, router bits, drill bits and more and Bench Cookie™ Home, which uses the original Bench Cookie design but which is offered in a black finish for use in the home and office.
Once Rockler rolled out their grippy Bench Cookie work-holders, it didn’t take long for woodworkers, hobbyists and craftsmen to discover a host of creative applications for them. But sometimes, a single cookie doesn’t provide the clearance needed for certain tasks. Enter Bench CookieTM Plus, an “up”grade that makes it easier to use circular saws, jig saws and drill bits with no risk of hitting the workbench. It also elevates the work to take strain off the lower back. For finishers, it permits smooth, uninterrupted strokes when brushing or spraying the edges of the workpiece, and for finish sanding, it allows unrestricted access for edge sanding the entire perimeterof the workpiece - no need to flip it over when easing the bottom edges.
Coupled with the new risers, Bench Cookies Plus allows users their choice of three different heights: a three-cookie height with the standard riser, or their choice of two- or three-cookie heights with the XL riser. One end of the riser slips into a standard round 3/4” bench dog hole, while the other end threads into the bottom of Bench Cookie Plus for a firm connection that will not tip. And, of course Bench Cookie Plus can be used alone with all the same benefits of the original. Bench Cookie Plus (Item #38052) retails at $13.99 for four cookies. The risers are sold separately in pairs at $3.99 for the standard length (Item #35142), and $7.99 for the XL length (Item #34671).
The new Bench Cookie™ Home wraps the soft, grippy functionality of the original Bench Cookie in a black shell. Slip them under laptops and AV componentry for additional ventilation and stability. Use them under cutting boards to prevent “walking” - ideal for that favorite cutting board with the slight warp. And when rolling out dough, cooks won’t have to chase the cutting board across the counter anymore. If the cutting board is stored on the counter, these will also keep it flat by allowing both sides to breathe evenly. And of course, they work just as well in the shop if black is preferred over blue. Easy to store, easy to use. Bench CookieTM Home (Item #33877) retails for $11.99 for a pack of four.
A wide selection of Bench Cookies and accessories is 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.
