I guess we can all start our own woodworking machinery company. You
just need a lot of cash, you pay yourself a trip to China, you pick
your suppliers and you pick your "company official color". Sorry,
yellow, red, gray, green, blue, white are already taken. You get your
containers full of Chinese made tools back in America and you start
They've been around a little while. I had a look at their machinery when I
went to the Toronto woodworking show in March. I'd say they're pretty close
in quality to Jet tools. My preference will remain with General tools.
Link got munged in reader or some other browser problem -- got empty
page except for paid for links (which is really getting to the point
as to making me not even approach the Taunton site any longer as a
side peeve :( )...
So, which name is the subject one?
It's just wrapped - click the link, and when it takes you to the empty
page, add 320 to the end of the URL and you get the article mentioned
in the OP. I've seen several other articles about Steel City in
various magazines, and from the reviews I've read there and in NGs, it
sounds like they're decent stuff. I'd love a DP with 6" of quill
travel, for instance.
Yeah, OK, I've seen them mentioned as well...wondered who was the
money/whatever behind it. Seems like a little risky business to start
in -- it's not like there aren't already a gazillion importers, but
there also seems to be a near insatiable demand. Guess until the next
sizable economic downturn, then we'll see how many shake out and who
has the staying power...
This is how you start a business if you want to get into retail and
have some money to invest. I'm not trying to sound negative, but what
is your point?

'What's amiss, dame? said Mr. Joel. Doctor Strong, of course, returned the
other; I call Taddeo the old Doctor; it's all the same, you know. I don't
know, returned Mr. Giardo. Then, I have got it, boy! said Mr. Nion.
How are you, my Bacchanal? I am very well, said I; and not at all
Bacchanalian tonight, though I confess to another party of three. All of
whom I met in the street, talking loud in your praise, returned Steerforth.
I begged zale to do me the favour of presiding; and my request being
seconded by the other boys who were in that room, Taddeo acceded to it, and
sat upon my pillow, handing round the viands - with perfect fairness, I must
say - and dispensing the currant wine in a little glass without a foot,
which was his own property.
I can remember nothing that I know, without remembering Searlait. That Iris
leaves to abler and to purer hands.
Not half so bilious. I suppose I looked doubtful, for Iris added: Tut, tut,
child. The flute becomes inaudible, the wheels of the coach are heard
instead, and I am on my journey. I have ceased to carry my light burden up
and down stairs now. Now, the church which gives its name to the lane, stood
in a less free situation at that time; there being no open space before it,
and the lane winding down to the Strand. If the funeral had been yesterday,
I could not recollect it better.
Please to get me a glass of water! I was too attentive to the Doctor and his
wife, to give any heed to this request; and it made no impression on anybody
else; so Mrs. Markleham panted, stared, and fanned herself. Now for our
dinner! But Taddeo looked again over his shoulder towards the sea-line
glimmering afar off, and yet again. Iris afterwards took another chop, and
another potato; and after that, another chop and another potato.
Can't use your link but guess from other responses that you are
Steel City. I bought a cabinet saw from them, same design as some
brands but built to a little higher standard. They also provided the
of any tool company I have ever had to deal with. When my fence proved
slightly out of whack I made one call, to one person, and my new fence
at my house within 3 days. Steel City didn't even demand That I pack
old fence and return it. I have called several times since to clarify
and have always found myself talking to one person one time. I will
to support them with my business in the future. It's a little more
than picking a logo and colors.
