I needed a new on/off switch for my table saw which I use all the time. A quick Google search found eReplacementParts, so on Tuesday I ordered the switch, on Thursday it came in the mail from Salt Lake City to Omaha, NE. I took off the old switch, put the new one on in seconds, plugged it in, and my saw works again. Thanks for the good part and especially the fast service!!
From Lumber to Machines
Powermatic began in 1921, when Leonard Smith, the company’s founder, wanted to start selling his rough-cut lumber pre-planed. But Smith didn’t want to buy a planer, so he just built his own instead. A friend approached him and offered to buy his planer, and Smith accepted. He then used the profits to build four more, which he sold to friends in the lumber business. Soon people were coming far and wide to purchase his well-built machines, and Smith left the lumber business to begin manufacturing woodworking tools full time. And that’s how Powermatic was born!
