Arbortech – Wood carver

 

Arbortech started in Nannup, a small country town in the South West of Western Australia where my wife Kristine and I were living an “alternative lifestyle”. We made a living from a combination of driving school buses, mechanical repairs and woodworking. We believed in the simple philosophy that “a person who did that which they loved doing, was already successful’. In fact I came to believe that no one could compete with a person who loved what they were doing because they were prepared to do it anyway.

 

arbortechInventing had always been a love of mine and most of my woodworking tools were a result of experimentation. When we formed Arbortech in 1988 to commercialise our first successful product “the Woodcarver Blade”, we promised ourselves that we would continue with this philosophy and search for people who also enjoyed their work.

 

The result is that our tools are designed, made and marketed in Australia by people who love tools. Naturally our staffs are formally qualified but there is no better qualification than their level of commitment and enthusiasm that is embodied in every one of our products.

 

It is our intention to produce interesting products that are a joy to use with marked improvements in performance and safety over existing tools. I have come to realise that inventing is the easy part and that taking concepts from prototype to product to market is far more difficult, especially for a small company located in Perth, which is possibly the most isolated city in the world. Yet that is exactly what we do and for that reason I believe that Arbortech is my best invention yet.

 

So what is the secret behind Arbortech? It’s the passion that comes from pursuing our dreams.

CARBIDE – Abrasive tools

 

carbideCarbide is the name of our company. But it is also the name of a sintered metal (tungsten) – an extremely hard metal having approx. 98% of the hardness of an industrial diamond. The abrasive consists of grains of carbide of a particular size depending on the purpose, which are welded onto a steel base.

 

Carbide tools give a powerful “TRUE GRIT” performance – on both wet and dry materials. Carbide is the strongest and most effective abrasive tool on the market today.
Our highly versatile grinding products are coated with the extremely hard metal CARBIDE, which grinds better and longer than traditional abrasives.

 

Carbide grinding and sanding tools lasts up to 150 times longer. Carbide grinding and sanding tools are extremely durable and can be used for a variety of surface treatments on materials of all kinds.

 

Our full range of products makes it easy to find the appropriate tool for every sanding and grinding application. These small metallic grains are the abrasive medium, making carbide extremely durable compared to sandpaper. Carbide coating’s sharpness and other unique properties prevent material from building up on the sanding and grinding tools. The tools can be used for industrial purposes, as well as for fine finishing jobs. If material build-up does occur, it is easily removed using a metal brush or a cleaning solvent.

 

Carbide/tungsten coated sanding tools are extremely long lasting, and can be used for sanding and the surface treatment of a wide range of materials. Carbide’s long life and effective sanding qualities saves time and improve results.

EurekaZone  – Smart Woodworking System

 

eurekazoneEurekazone started operations in 2001 in Edison, NJ focusing on bringing safety and innovation to the wood workers looking for better alternatives.

 

The founder Dino ‘the carpenter’ brought his passion for invention to the wood working industry establishing EurekaZone and the tracksawforum.com user forum. Eurekazone has been bringing Dino’s ideas to life ever since, designing, manufacturing and retailing better and safer alternatives for wood workers everywhere.

 

Eurekazone pioneered the ‘deadwood concept’ tm and created the EZ Smart brand of tools with this philosophy. This means that the tools and accessories created keep the wood “dead” still in place as you cut, bore, plane, rout, etc.

 

By naming the concept “deadwood” we mean that the wood is trapped in place and the tools are positioned so that your hands and fingers are well clear of the blade, substantially reducing the risk of injury.

 

Today, Eurekazone, LLC operates from a new expanded facility in Ocala, Florida designing and manufacturing the next generation of tool innovations.

 

Holders of a number of patents related to the EZ Smart Line of tools, Eurekazone now ships products around the world. Recognized for its quality, innovation and performance EZ Smart tools are setting new standards of performance while keeping its users safe.

 


 

Gorilla Gripper  – Panel carrier

 

gorilla-gripperThe Gorilla Gripper ‘Advantage’ panel carrier has extremely durable, rock-hard glass-filled nylon gripping plates lined with non-marring rubberized gripping pads…offering the same functionality and lifetime guarantee as our acclaimed aluminum Grippers…but at a much lower price!

 

The ‘Advantage’ accommodates plywood, drywall, Melamine, MDF, sheet metal, and virtually all other sheet goods and panels from paper-thin to slightly over 3/4”. It’s very affordable and will benefit its user’s back, neck, hands & arms when picking up & carrying those heavy, cumbersome materials. It makes so much sense versus the old-fashioned way of bending sideways, hoisting those panels overhead, torquing the spine & risking damage to the back & neck in the process.

 

Considering the importance of a well-preserved back it is likely to be the best investment a construction worker, woodworker, sheet metal worker or DIY’er will ever make. Even burly men need to ask themselves whether being ‘macho’ is worth even one trip to a Chiropractor, a day or two of lost work, or worse yet a lifetime back injury!

Feather Pro  – Feather board pressure pad

 

feather-proEntrepreneurs at heart, Keith and Ron Bow formed Bow Products to solve problems. Driven by creativity and passion to find a better way, the Bow Brothers like to spend their spare time developing new products for woodworking.

 

Through the years, as with most woodworkers, Keith became aware the hard way of the dangers of ‘kickback” on a table saw. “It’s always there, always on your mind”. “I’ve had my share of scary moments and I’m lucky to have avoided serious injury. It seemed to us, based on the products available in the market, that this phenomenon was just an accepted risk in the industry. Researching injuries in woodworking, we saw estimates of thousands of injuries every year, many serious, which are a consequence of kickback”.

 

Keith was not satisfied that traditional plastic featherboards truly met the safety challenge. Sure they all guide wood into the blade, but their designs are all based on the same premise and in measuring kickback resistance force, plastic feathers all performed about the same.

 

Through trial and error the hinge design enabled this and the Feather PRO was born. Designing hinges in the feathers, they discovered a way to significantly restrict the flow of wood in the direction against the hinge. This essentially added a mechanical advantage to the Hardened Foam. Something, to their knowledge, that was never done before. Ron noted how satisfying it was when they began to test the concept. “It was simply amazing that this tool was so much more effective against kickback.” Keith added “As we started tinkering with the Feather PRO we realized the product actually outperforms plastic featherboards on the infeed and is less likely to damage a blade or a bit if it came into contact with them. It’s A Win/Win tool, and a fresh new design in a stale product category.”
“This is just the start.” Keith notes, “We have several other tools coming soon.”
