Limited Run Woodpecker Saddle T- Squares

March 8, 2011 Leave a comment

Introducing Woodpeckers precision machined aluminum Combination Saddle T-Square. A handy NEW tool that makes accurate marking easier than ever.

By combining the benefits of a saddle square with the precision of a T-Square you have the best of both worlds. The saddle squares features makes it possible to draw razor accurate lines on both the face and edge of your work piece without having to move a thing. Imagine how much simpler it will be to cut a board to length when you can see the line from two sides.

Now imagine being able to instantly place your pencil an exact distance from a board’s edge and draw a perfectly straight line while maintaining that exact distance. That’s made possible by a series of perfectly machined, 1 mm diameter holes spaced 1/32″ apart (1 mm spacing for the metric version). Say hello to super accurate layouts and better joinery!

These new Saddle T-Squares are 2.9″ wide with a 3/4″ long saddle. They are available in two styles, imperial or combination imperial and metric. Either style is available in a 4″ (100mm) or 6″ (150mm) length. Made in USA!

Your chance to order one of these unique tools ends midnight March 21.

This “One-Time Tool” is part of our one-time production run program. So get yours now because when they’re gone, they’re gone!

NOTE: Tools are made to order and ship the week of April 18.

Make Beautiful Boxes By Adding A Few Splines

March 7, 2011 Leave a comment

The Eagle America Spline Jig was designed for your table saw to save you time and help you safely create strong, decorative joints. Used when making fine furniture, picture frames and boxes, spline joints are one of the most beautiful methods of joinery used in woodworking.

You can use contrasting wood tones or various spline thicknesses to create decorative accents. Spline joints are not only attractive but they feature extra gluing surfaces when compared to a plain joint, making them one of the strongest joints you can make.

The jig measures 12″ W x 24″ L and features an embedded t-track with two stop blocks. Use both stop blocks to sandwich and cut splines in narrow projects, one stop block to clamp and index cuts on medium sized projects or remove both stop blocks for larger projects such as boxes.

The base of the jig is made from durable 1/2″ HDPE which creates a smooth, non-marring surface that slides easily across your table saw top. The adjustable 18″ miter bar will fit in any standard 3/4″ miter slot. Made in USA!

We also recommend using our Thin Rip Jig which allows you to safely and accurately cut thin splines on the left-hand side of the blade so there is no burning, binding or kickback.

When You Buy the Best Tools…You have to Look Your Best!

Santa came early this year and stopped by the Eagle America store to try out our line of Festool power tools.

Impressed with the quality and savings, he ordered a sled full and took advantage of Eagle America’s FREE SHIPPING on any Festool purchase over $125.

Santa bought them but Eagle America shipped them out to all the good little woodworking elf’s at the North Pole.

Fancy Santa

Santa or Mike as he is known as at Eagle America is one of our store associates/woodworkers that answers your technical questions.

Celebrating his 6th anniversary at Eagle America this month, he came dressed up to our Christmas party in a tuxedo.

Just couldn’t let the party go on without sharing the moment with all of you.

Merry Christmas!

Quality Father & Son Time Continued…

The fun with this rocker project was the time that I got to spend with my son over the Thanksgiving holiday.

After he finished scaling the drawing from Matt Nauman’s picture and making the AutoCAD drawing (misstated on first posting) we made up a mockup out of plywood. This was a pretty rough affair but was done only to make sure of the position of the person rocking wasn’t too high.  I didn’t want my son or anyone else tipping over!

 This is what the mockup looked like:

OK, so it is pretty rough looking.  This mockup was to determine function, not aesthetics’.  It worked, but we added a “stopper” at the back of the rocker to keep from rolling over onto your head.   And we added arm rests, just because….  This rough looking  rocker will be used for patterns for the final products. We are currently in the process of cutting material and gluing it up. More to come in my next post…

Eagle America added this great new product to their line,  just in time for the holidays!

The Demo Air Net makes any shop or work site project easier and cleaner while costing significantly less than a traditional air filtration system. Scientifically proven to remove airborne pollutants and carcinogens while you work, this device easily slips over the front of any fan and captures airborne particles down to 5 microns. After use, it will need to be washed. You can simply rinse it in a mop bucket but washing it on a gentle cycle in a machine and air drying works best. Now it is good as new and ready for your next project. (Fan not included)
