New Announcement From Steel City Toolworks


Traditionally, table tops and fences for heavy duty woodworking machinery have been made from cast iron. But at the AWFS show in Las Vegas this week, Steel City Toolworks announced they will be shipping some of their tablesaws, bandsaws and jointers with granite tops and fences (in the case of the jointer). Popular Woodworking first broke the story, you can read it for yourself here.

Also, check out what other woodworkers are saying about it on the Knots Discussion Forum over at Fine Woodworking. Here's the FWW editor's blog discussion of the granite tops in their AWFS coverage. Scroll down to the entry for 18 July.

I know I'm getting a little ahead of myself here, but I'm extremely impressed by the entire Steel City line. I think they are offering well-built, thoughtfully-engineered machines that offer a lot of features not normally found standard on other tool makes, for example, built-in roller stands on the cabinet table saws. Their prices are very competitive and their customer service is highly rated by the folks on the discussion forums. When it comes time to add some new tools to The Novice Garage Woodworker's shop, Steel City tools will be at the top of the list.
