Last night Rick and I went to St. George, to Morley Miller Machinery. For their Christmas Open House they had a some company reps present to answer any questions about their products.
We checked out a number of gadgets at the BlackJack display, including some sanding drums that attach to a drill press. You just cut your sandpaper to size, slip it around the drum, slide it into the drill press and voila. Pretty convenient.
At the King Canada display we checked out this handy little air compressor.
Then, at the Steel City display we spoke with Terry Ross, who I had first met at another wood show and he talked to me about a number of new products that are coming out in January, here in Canada (and are already available in the US). It sounds like they have made quite a few changes to their product line, based on the feedback of customers. The one change mentioned was the size of one of their table saws, reducing the size, which sounds like it is more appropriate for home shops with limited room.
All in all, it was an interesting evening. Yes, indeed, very interesting.
