This is from the dashboard that eBay gives us to track the traffic from our Tool-Hunter blogs, and what it shows is the number of bids placed by our readers and the success rate of their bids. Now, not everyone is successful, but what this shows is a trend that has been improving over the past two years that we've been blogging. Granted, our blogs aren't traditional "blogs", in that we don't feel the need to post when we have nothing fresh to say. No, our goal is connecting lovers of fine tools with , well, more fine tools! We hope this describes you and if so we encourage you to check-out all of our "Tool-Hunter" blogs. You'll find them listed on our launch page at this link: http://tool-hunter.blogspot.com
Thanks for joining us, and please drop us a line if anything comes to mind that you'd like to see on these blogs; or if you have a tool to promote.

STEEL CITY is headquartered in Murfreesboro, TN, and though they are a new company, their investment group, led by Scott Box and Mark Strahler have had long, distinguished careers in the machinery industry.
Strahler was VP of sales and marketing for Delta before leaving to found Orion, a successful start-up that manufactures machinery for Sears and other retailers. Box served as director of product development for Delta before leaving to head up the Powermatic division of the WMH Tool Group, owner of the Jet, Powermatic and Wilton brands. Together, they have been actively involved in every aspect of the woodworking machinery business and have built an extensive network of the best suppliers and manufacturing connections in Taiwan and mainland China.
One of the most unique features of many of their tools is the use of granite (Get it son? That's a pun in the title.) for table surfaces, fences and now even for the bottom wheel on one of their bandsaws. More on this in future posts, but for now just think about the advantages a solid granite top would bring to a table saw for example. No more, vibration absorbing and flat as a... well, a granite slab!
Steel City now has Bandsaws, Grinders, Jointers, Lathes, Mortisers, Planers, Sanders, Shapers, Table Saws, Drilling Machines, Dust Collectors and even Air Cleaners.
More to come.
