Rockler Straight Edge System
NEW ALL-IN-ONE STRAIGHT EDGE SYSTEM ENSURES SAFER, CLEANER RIP CUTS UP TO 8′ LONG
MEDINA, MN (December 16, 2010) – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware introduces a safer and easier
way to rip or rout 8’ sheets of stock with the Rockler Straight Edge System (SKU #36495). Included with
the system is a pair of 52″ extruded aluminum edges that can be locked end-to-end or used separately to
get accurate and cleaner cuts whether using a circular saw, jigsaw, or router. Also included is a power tool
guide which locks a saw or router to the straight edges, keeping cuts safer and straighter by eliminating
drift and kickback associated with freehand cuts. The all-in-one system also includes two T-track clamps
that lock the edges securely in place, a T-fence attachment that turns the system into a T-square, and an adjustable handle that allows the user to move the system from one project to another.
“We’ve given our customer a better and much safer alternative to snapping a line on 4′ x 8′ sheet stock and making a freehand rip- or cross-cut,” says Jim Frey, Product Developer for Rockler. “This system comes with two 52″ edges that lock end-to-end and are clamped down with the included T-track clamps for a 104″long guide; perfect for 8′ rip cuts. Or use just one edge to make a 4′ crosscut. Add the locking sled to theequation and the result is accuracy and safety not possible with freehand cuts.”
“Many of our customers confirm they’re cutting 4′ x 8′ plywood panels far more easily and accurately than ever before,” Frey says. “The system guide is also very popular because it adds tangible safety and accuracy elements.”
- Two 52″ highly durable extruded aluminum edges that lock down on stock with a pair of T-track clamps.
- A high-visibility yellow erasable story stick writing surface that allows users to make temporary story sticks, keeping stock free of unsightly pencil or pen marks
- Convenient, removable handle slides along the T-track, making it possible to easily move the edge system from one project to another
- T-fence attachment turns the straight edge into an adjustable T-square, allowing a number of measuring, marking and layout tasks
