Council Tool Velvicut Premium Saddle Axe #JP20-2SA16

Velvicut Premium Saddle Axe

The New Saddle Axe from Council Tool Co.
is a traditional Velvicut® Premium US Made Axe pattern.

Drop forged from 5160 steel, known for its superior characteristics and blade retention.  This axe is a beautiful axe, however it was designed and manufactured for work.  It has been heat treated, tempered and crafted with a distinctive flat grind on each blade for maximum versatility.

This specific design is a multifunctional and packable axe pattern that received its name from being traditionally carried in a saddle bag while on horseback.  The innovative yet traditional American Pattern sports phantom bevels that greatly reduce surface friction and bite deeper than many convex bladed axes and the bevels also serve for easy removal of the axe bit after a deep cut into the wood.

The highly versatile Saddle Axe design has the extremely sharp 25 degree flat grind on the left blade for cutting, shaving, and carving and a more robust 32 degree flat grind on the right blade for notching, splitting and heavier jobs.  All combine to make a very well designed, versatile and useful axe.

All Velvicut Saddle Axes come with a fine leather double bit blade cover.

BollmanGrip German Made Locking Pliers

Bollman German Made Locking Pliers

We are excited to announce that we are the first distributor in the US for BollmanGrip locking pliers.  If you are not familiar with BollmanGrip I don’t blame you.  They’ve never tried to make it into the US market because Vise-Grip has been so popular here. That all changed though when Irwin moved their plier production to China.  As their quality has declined, that’s opened up a need for an industrial quality locking pliers, and we think BollmanGrip is just the thing.

bollmandisplaylockingpliers

Started in 1931 in Remscheid Germany, BollmanGrip is a 3rd generation family business that now employs around 40 people.  Not only do they make all the standard locking pliers that we’ve come to depend on here in the states, but they also have a lot of new models such as their parallel jaw pliers and their angled long nose pliers.

The rivets and the spring are substantially more heavy duty than Irwin’s.  They also open the opposite way, which makes it a whole lot easier to unlock.  The clamping jaws are extruded like I-beams for greater strength and are made from German chrome vanadium steel.  Another nice feature is that they put a substantial weld at the back of the pliers by the screw mechanism which makes it much stronger and keeps it from slipping where you set it.

This is just our first selection of their product line and hope to add more into the future.  Check out everything we are carrying from Bollman online or if you find yourself in Kansas City, come down to the store and see them for yourself.

Dubuque Clamp – USA Woodworking Clamps

With the closure of Pony/Adjustable/Jorgensen, we have been looking around for other options for US made clamps, and so we stumbled upon Dubuque Clamp, a US made wood clamp company so old fashioned they don’t even have a website.

DUBUQUE USA HANDSCREW (MIRO MOOSE) WOOD CLAMP

We carried a few of these hand screw clamps from Pony, and now we have a much larger selection from Dubuque. Comes in 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″, these Dubuque hand screw clamps (a favorite of wood workers) evenly distributes clamping pressure over the broad width and reach of the jaws.

DUBUQUE (MIRO MOOSE) CAM CLAMP

MIRO·MOOSE cam clamps from Dubuque Clamp Works use a wooden cam, which is designed in such a way that it can exert considerable pressure without risk of damage to the clamp. Designed to be drawn up and tightened with only one hand free. Cork padding on the Maple jaw faces prevents damage to your work and helps keep the clamp from slipping. No-flex spring steel bars provide strength and durability. Comes in a variety of sizes.

DUBUQUE (USA) ALUMINUM BAR CLAMP

Dubuque Aluminum Bar Clamps. Lightweight, extremely rigid, and easy to adjust. Strong extruded bars measure 1-3/8″ x 7/8″ and have side walls nearly 1/8″ thick. Moveable head has a spring clutch for fast adjustment on the notched bar, and the fixed head has a 1/2″ diameter Acme-threaded screw for final tightening, with a large, easy-to-turn wing knob. 1000 lb load rating. Comes in 24″, 36″, 48″ and 72″.
