Over at Rockler, their Black Friday 2021 woodworking tool deals just went live.
As usual, Rockler’s main focus is on their own products, but there are also plenty of other deals on equipment, shop essentials, and supplies such as Titebond wood glue.
Rockler’s deals start 11/19/21 and run through 11/29/21 unless noted otherwise.
The router table packages can be a good buy, with the main difference being in the tabletop material. The choices are HPL (high pressure laminate), phenolic, and cast iron.
Rockler usually has a greater selection of woodworking machinery on sale, but I’m guessing high demand and slow freight has complicated things. Even last year, it took months for holiday orders to be fulfilled, and at the time of this posting a lot of Powermatic and Jet equipment looks to be backordered well into 2022 already.
Still, there are some handheld and benchtop tool deals – miter saws, planers, sanders, and CNC routers – that might be worth a peek.
Note – if you’re shopping around for a HomeRight spray shelter, they seem to also be selling under the Wagner brand. I ordered a HomeRight from Amazon in an earlier deal, and that product page now leads to a Wagner spray shelter. This isn’t directly relevant, but could be useful for anyone interested in looking up price comparisons.
I don’t know about the Bosch router set being the “lowest price ever” since Amazon has them beat by $20, but the router bit sale might be interesting for anyone looking to try new edge profiles.
Rockler also has a lot of other miscellaneous deals and promos. As mentioned, much of this is on their own tools and accessories, but that’s not a bad thing. They also have a deal on a Bessey K-Body Revo Jr parallel clamp 6-pack. (Keep in mind that these are the Jrs and not the same as Bessey’s typical K-Body Revo clamps.)
Are there any Rockler Black Friday or Cyber Monday woodworking deals that you find especially noteworthy?
Stuart, thanks for all your coverage. I know many people already said thank you, but I have to as well. Much appreciated!
Note that the Wagner spray shelter comes with a built-in floor and the Rockler branded does not. I know because I just bought the Wagner 2 days ago.
I sent you a message through the contact form, not sure if you’ve seen it (you’re probably quite busy). Any deals on the Fuji Spray Q5 that you know of?
I failed to realize that the Wagner has a floor. The HomeRight can be taken outside and used with a drop cloth, while the Wagner doesn’t need any additional components. But can you put the spray shelter away if you spill stuff on the floor of the Wagner, vs a separate drop cloth with the HomeRight?
I’m sorry – I saw your message and have been looking for Fuji deals, but nothing has come up yet.
I scored my Fuji a few years ago with a coupon code (but sadly still haven’t had a chance to work on the projects I bought it for), but they’ve been added to exclusion lists since then.
There might be separate Fuji promos, and I have my eyes out for them, but haven’t seen anything yet.
I got my Q5 at IWF. On the last day they were selling the display units 20% off, but cash only. Dunno who randomly carries that much cash, so they honored that price for a new in box unit ordered from their website.
That was around the time that Fuji started appearing on the excluded vendor list and it was the best price I’ve seen since then.
Hopefully these trade shows kick up again next year and they might have a similar offer?
Best chisel options for hollowing out segmented hardwood bowls?
I am prone to scrappers. Have never used carbides.
If on a lathe, Easy Wood tool with round cutter maybe?
