Testimonials

“ I had so much fun testing this tool that I found myself looking for any good excuse to use it. Swiss-watch precision and smooth operation are combined in a package that is easier to compare to fine German sports cars than to other woodworking tools. ”

- Popular Woodworking's 2006 Best New Tool by Robert Lang

“ I received the Plunge Base today. First, the delivery was fast. Second, the whole package, from the manuals to the base are way above my expectation. I was worried how the slide would work. It is so smooth and even. I am so looking forward to using it. As a machinist gone woodworker it is a real treat to buy tools built by machinists for woodworkers. I could go on and on, but i just want to say thank you for your work. ”

- High regards, Frank (Micro Fence customer)

“ Hi Rich, Thanks for the delivery of the Micro Fence plunge base which I received, as promised. I could not be more impressed with the quality of the tool, or rather, instrument. I used to attend the Model Engineering show at Wembly, England for about ten years when I lived in Europe and always lamented that there was nowhere such fine quality of materials, workmanship, and finish could be found for the ordinary man to purchase. Upon receiving the plunge base, I was really surprised to find that I couldn't, using the Model Engineers quality as frames for reference, find any lapses of judgment in the design or execution of the tool. Congratulations to me for being lucky enough to choose your product and congratulations to you for your fine product, ”

- Best regards, Bill Bogel (MF Customer)
