These three pieces improve user safety over other tools because they combine keeping hands away from saw blades, while allowing better control over the stock while cutting
Medina, MN (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
Just in time for the holiday gifting season, Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has packaged a 3-piece Safety Kit from Bench Dog Tools featuring a high-tech Ultra Push-Bloc, a Feather-Loc Featherboard, and a Magnetic Push Stick — all geared toward providing increased protection for the fingers and hands when guiding stock during the cutting process. The kit includes: the Push-Bloc, which uses an ergonomically-correct handle and a high-friction rubber surface for a non-slip, non-marring, safer grip; the Feather-Loc, which prevents kickback by gripping stock tight against a fence; and the Magnetic Push Stick, which keeps hands and fingers a safe distance from sharp blades. This trio of durable safety items is a generous way to provide the do-it-yourselfers and woodworkers on your shopping list with an increased level of safety in the shop.
"Rockler has always looked for ways to increase the level of safety for our customers," said Steve Krohmer, Vice President of product development. "These three pieces improve user safety over other tools because they combine keeping hands away from saw blades, while allowing better control over the stock while cutting."
The Ultra Push-Bloc provides maximum control while routing, jointing, and ripping. Other features include:
- A non-marring rubber bottom uses the same high-friction rubber surface found on Rockler's
Patent-pending Bench Cookie™ Work Grippers
- An ergonomically-correct handle
The Feather-Loc Featherboard attaches to any fence to prevent work stock from lifting during the
cutting process. Other features include:
- Integral fittings for T-slots and a Miter Slot Adapter for standard 3/8" x 3/4" slots
- Used in tandem for optimum safety: one on a table, another on a fence
- Dual-use, heel-end which can also be used as a stop
- Built-in setup feather which makes setting the tension fast, easy and repeatable
- Durable polymer construction
The 12" long Magnetic Push Stick Provides maximum safety by keeping hands and fingers away from blades. Other features include:
- Inset magnet which allows for storage on the side of any metal object like a tablesaw
- Ergonomic handle with lightweight plastic blade that reduces fatigue
- Angled tip that easily accommodates various thicknesses of wood
The 3-piece Safety Kit (48937) retails for $24.99 and is available at Rockler Woodworking and
Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers, Rockler.com or from the Rockler® catalog.
