You have probably seen more and more timber frame designers and customers ask about adding steel plates to their projects. This is a fine engineering solution to reinforce your frames, but the steel plate slots must be cut accurately or it defeats the purpose. So it is important for you to consider the best slot mortising tools available before tackling these projects.
You probably know more quarterbacks than nose tackles. Nose tackles don't rack up a lot of MVP awards (or even tackles for that matter) but the best NT's can handle multiple offensive linemen at once, which frees up the rest of their team to do their jobs.
Hopefully you are enjoying the outdoors and some beautiful Fall weather. The Timberwolf Tools team recently had a nice hike up Caribou Mountain in Maine. BRRRR!! It was cold, but great to be in a spot that has four seasons and lots of bright colors. And I can confirm that ham and cheese tastes better at 2,850 feet.
We hope you are enjoying a summer of quality projects, and perhaps you skipped some work to watch dramatic USA and German futbol matches!
Last summer we wrote to you about how the Mafell ZSX Ec/400 Chain Beam Saw was a "game changer." It has prompted many follow-up questions about one of the most unique machines we offer at Timberwolf Tools. We hope the answers below help you determine whether a ZSX is the right decision for your business.
By popular demand, we want to provide you with an exposé on the world's top jigsaw: the Mafell P1cc.
Perhaps you use a jigsaw on every project, or maybe it's been years since you touched one. Either way, we encourage you to consult your industry peers here about this dynamic tool and its potential application for your business.
We hope your families had a memorable long weekend. We are mindful of those who have served and sacrificed for their country.
Last weekend, I spent the good part of an afternoon battling large piles of snow in my driveway after a wild Maine winter. My Honda snow blower can throw snow a long way, but I spent much of that afternoon dreaming about a 4-wheel drive tractor with a large bucket or even better... a 15-ton CAT front-end loader!!
