Update on the Improved Pattern Dividers
Posted on 07 March 2017
Next Saturday we’re taking a big step forward to meet demand for our Improved Pattern Dividers. We know that many of you have been waiting (mostly) patiently. And I’m happy to say that soon we should have plenty.
On Saturday we’re moving production to a facility in Nicholasville, Ky., called Machine Time. While you probably have never heard of the company, the owner might be familiar. Machine Time is run by Craig Jackson, the founder of Easy Wood Tools.
Craig left Easy Wood after Pony Tools acquired his company, suspended Pony’s operations and then sold off Easy Wood. He’s a life-long machinist and was eager to keep his hand in manufacturing woodworking tools. His new facility is filled with some impressive large-scale CNC machines, which should make short work of our dividers.
All the components will be assembled and hand-finished in Raney’s shop in Indiana.
I can’t say exactly how soon we’ll have dividers ready to sell – it really depends on how smooth the transition to the new facility is. But the end (or the beginning, depending on your perspective) is in sight.
