February 1, 2014 Announcing two new Saddle-Tail units!

January 24, 2014 Update: We continue to keep busy with orders since Chris Schwarz named the Saddle-Tail the day 7 tool of his 2013 Anarchist Gift guide.

“If you use a dovetail marker, this is the best one I’ve encountered yet.”

We appreciate the review Chris and others have provided (see them on the “In The News page“) as well as the comments and feedback from our customers.  Please stay tuned for some new product releases in the next week on our New Products page!

Maryland residents please note: Maryland sales tax is required and will be added to the $75 price.  If you would like to make payment arrangements other than PayPal or do not reside in the USA please email us here to make other arrangements – THANK YOU!

    I just received my Saddle-Tail today and went right out into my shop to give it a whirl. It is nothing short of awesome and you should order one immediately, before the world catches on and Chris runs out of inventory! :) Please help the burgeoning toolmaker grow his business (I gave a few hints in a separate email; nudge/wink). I can’t wait to see what comes next.

    I saw Chris today at a Lie Nielsen hand tool event and it was awesome! If anyone had told me I would spend $50 for a dovetail gauge, I would have told them they were full of baloney. But after using it I bought it on the spot. It is a wonderful product and at least a dozen other people today thought so as well.
