Equipment and Tools I use:

Besides past customers , I've included links to the manufacturers of the shop tools I use if you want more information.   Or feel free to contact me directly with any questions!  I won't use any equipment or tools that I wouldn't recommend to others.


My main equipment would have to be the cutting tables.  I own an OMAX 2652 Waterjet table ( )  Kent, WA

My Plasma table is a 4' x 4' PlasmaCAM with digital height control  Colorado City, CO

My CNC Router table  is a Laguna Swift 4' x 4' (

Welders are 120 Amp Miller and 140 Amp Hobart wire-feeders.  ( ) and ( ) respectively.

My Ironworker is a 55 ton Cleveland Steel Tools machine.  ( )

The Lathe/Mill is built by Grizzly Industrial  ( )

My 100 ton press brake and 1/4" shear are both 48" wide capacity and built in house by me.  

The shop forklift is a 3500 lb capacity lift built by Hyster.  ( )  Built in 1965.

I use Milwaukee power tools exclusively (angle grinders, sanders, circular saws, magnetic drills, and cordless tools.  (

Most of my supplies (welding wire, all thread, specialty tools, router bits, sanding discs, grinding wheels, etc.  come from McMaster-CARR  ( )

All signs get shipped in custom made boxes to fit the sign.  These boxes, shipping supplies (shrink wrap, tape, bubble-wrap, packing peanuts, etc) all come from ULINE.
