Post: RE: Blade / Bit cleaning

I first used CMT Blade and Bit and Thought it did ok but slow.  I got a good deal on the Rockler concentrated cleaner.  I am pretty impressed.  It works really well and really fast.

I just remodeled our kitchen and added upper cabinets to add space. WE store stuff that we seldom use and extra groceries when we make a big store run.  I haven't regretted it.

I started with the Grizzly 18/36.  I now have the SuperMax 25-50.  Before buying the SuperMax, I compared Supermax to Jet at Woodcraft.  The SuperMax is beefier for the same size tool.
