SPECIAL MARKETING SECTION SPECIAL MARKETING SECTION Compiled by BHSW Inc. In the woodshop, there are three distinct phases in processing an order. First, there’s planning and design, then production, and fi-nally delivery and installation. This last has al-ways been a bit of a challenge for cabinet, clos-et and furniture shops because working in a remote location means that one has to make do with limited tools, some security issues, and even hauling awkward materials to the site, such as long moldings, wide panels and countertops. Manufacturers are aware of the challenges inherent in working outside the shop, so Woodshop News has invited several industry leaders to share ways in which their products can help with jobsite efficiency. The solutions these companies offer in-clude complete yet extremely portable tool systems that are designed to limit set-up time (and thereby costs) on the jobsite. They do this by being very compact, and also by delivering high levels of accuracy and the ability to work with wide and long materials in remote locations. Other companies make it easier to transport those materials to the installation, and to unload and handle parts efficiently, or they provide safe and secure tool storage on the truck. What all of these companies have in common is a desire to help woodworkers work as efficiently on the jobsite as they do in the woodshop. www.festoolusa.com . . . . . . pg. 38 www.jobsitepcw.com . . . . . . pg. 39 www.tracrac.com . . . . . . . . pg. 36 www.uwsta.com . . . . . . . . . pg. 37 MAY 2011 WWW.WOODSHOPNEWS.COM 35
