Default Couldn't resist this one

Take a look at the picture for Rockler's cleaning kit. Notice anything unusual about the router bit in the small container? I guess this is for removing that annoying resin and pitch buildup on router bit shanks for people who put their bits in the collet upside down.

Router Bit and Saw Blade Cleaning Kit - Rockler Woodworking Tools

PS This is not a comment either for against this product. I've never used it. I have a spray bottle of Boeshield blade and bit cleaner that works well on my bits. Because it's a spray it doesn't take much to clean a bit. Lasts forever. I don't have any large saw blades to deal with although I'm almost ready to buy the Dewalt DWE7480 for my small basement shop. I have a 10% off coupon from Lowes that's burning a hole in my pocket. Just have to convince the better half. I'm going to offer up a jewelry box as my first project.

That is funny. I didn't notice that in the picture when I opened my e-mail from Rockler this morning. Thanks for the laugh.

Maybe they get a smoother cut if the shaft side is used... That would account for the need for the cleaner...

I didn't catch that either. You are very observant.
