VIDEO – Steel City Tools at IWF 2008 (Sponsored)


In this sponsored video from IWF 2008, we take a look at what’s new in the Steel City booth; with all the granite, we started to wonder if we stumbled onto a kitchen counter exhibit. What wowed us the most was how innovative Steel City has become with the application of this stable, flat stone. See how granite is used to provide an even more stable cut in an already powerful band saw.


 

STEEL CITY TOOL WORKS UNVEILS THEIR 10” RIVING KNIFE CABINET SAW WITH GRANITE TABLE TOP

Seeking to bring innovative and superior quality products to the market, Steel City proudly introduces their new 10” Riving Knife Cabinet Saws with GRANITE TABLE TOPS (Models 35900G, 35905G, 35910G, 35915G).

Granite provides a seamless, continuous work surface that is perfectly flat. Granite is harder than stainless steel. It absorbs vibration better, keeping the cut smooth and the blade alignment accurate. It‘s not affected by heat, cold or humidity. So it will never rust, spring, twist or warp like traditional cast iron table tops. It is also virtually maintenance-free. Or as Scott Box likes to explain it, “Cast iron is stress-relieved for six months and these tops have been stress relieved for 150 million years.”

Steel City is also adding a riving knife/guard system as standard equipment to this new line of granite “hybrid” table saws. The entire assembly travels vertically on ways and includes a quick-change guard. It is the heaviest and most accurate trunnion system available in the “hybrid” class of table saws!

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products,” Scott Box, Steel City Vice President/General Manager, said.  “This is a step in the right direction, by offering an alternative that our woodworking customers have been asking for.”

The Steel City 10” Riving Knife Cabinet Saw comes equipped with: 1.75 HP or 3 HP, single phase, 230V dual capacitor, TEFC motor with magnetic paddle-type switch, 30” or 50” Industrial T-Square Type Fence System with legs, splitter with guard and two riving knife blades, 12” granite extension wings (the basic table is 12” wider than standard tables), table board, standard insert, miter gauge, 4” dust port, motor cover, and user instruction manual.

The saw also is backed by the Steel City Tool Work’s standard five-year warranty and special 10-year warranty on granite components.
