Oneida Air’s new Supercell Turbo Dust Collector

SYRACUSE, New York– Oneida Air Systems introduces an expansion to its award-winning Supercell® dust collector series with the new Supercell Turbo. With 20% more CFM (up to 518 Actual CFM) on 4″ ports than the classic Supercell, and up to two times more CFM through 1.25″ and 2.5″ diameter hoses than traditional collectors, the Supercell Turbo offers more airflow to your tools requiring higher CFM and to more ports than ever before.

The patented Supercell is the first and only dust collector on the market with high enough levels of static pressure and CFM to accommodate the widest range of woodworking tools, from handheld sanders, table saws, and miter saws, to jointers, planers, and even CNC routers— essentially every tool in the shop with 1-5″ diameter dust ports. It’s high suction power moves dust-laden air at a relentless pace, overcoming resistance points.

New Angle-Depth Gauge from Woodpeckers

Woodpeckers newest OneTIME Tool takes a century-old machinist’s tool and updates it for use in the modern woodworker’s shop. For around a hundred years, machinists have relied on a device similar to our new Angle-Depth Gauge to measure small holes and grooves. Woodpeckers has taken this fundamental design, used woodworker-friendly graduations (32nds on one side and mm on the other), machined a notch in the end of the rule for parallel scribing and carefully milled the groove in the head so it always returns the rule perfectly square after using it for an angle. Use it to measure the depth of grooves and holes, to lay out angles, as a small T-square, for parallel scribing and as an accurate, compact rule. All this in a tool you’ll barely notice in your shirt pocket.

Woodpeckers Steadycurve Bandsaw Template Guide

Imagine a tool that physically guides you just outside the lines when band sawing contoured projects, leaving just the right amount for your router to clean up. No need to imagine anymore, that tool is here. That tool is Woodpeckers new SteadyCurve. Once woodworkers grasp the concept of following a pattern with a flush-trim router bit, it usually becomes their preferred method for any contoured project. Woodpeckers new SteadyCurve Band Saw Template Guide streamlines the process by using the same concept to rough-cut the workpiece. The template follower on SteadyCurve straddles your band saw blade and holds it away from the pattern by up to 1/4″.  Be the first to get yours today at this very special price!
