SawGear, a portable, precise, and rugged automated length measuring system for miter saws gains accelerated popularity with contractors as the industry’s favorites discover the true value of using this tool. Tom Silva, owner of Silva Brothers Construction and seen on This Old House and Ask This Old House, purchased SawGears for his job sites and will be seen using the SawGear on the This Old House television show on PBS. Tom joins well-known industry names Gary Katz and Art Waldal as new SawGear users, and the SawGear team is proud to be working with such a select group of innovators who are benchmarking change in the construction industry.

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with such a great group of contractors including Tom Silva. We’ve been fans of Tom for as long as we can remember, and we’re proud that he chose the SawGear for his job sites. We’re looking forward to working with Tom for a long time to come,” said Brandon Vaughn, SawGear’s Product Manager.

In addition to SawGear’s airing on This Old House, it will also be available for live demonstrations at the Remodeling Show and DeckExpo in Baltimore September 15 – 17. The SawGear booth is located in Tool Alley; booth number 5841. Show visitors will also be able to take advantage of fantastic show price specials.

Since SawGear was introduced last year, contractors and carpenters have been drawn to its ability to improve their overall productivity by up to 35%. And, with SawGear’s crown molding attachment, carpenters are saving time and eliminating waste with the measuring and cutting of crown and other molding pieces.

In addition to the popularity of the SawGear with contractors and carpenters, SawGear has created a buzz with tool reviewers and tool bloggers worldwide for its job site ruggedness and versatility. Either at the job site or in the shop, users simply attach the SawGear to a miter saw, enter the required dimensions, slap the material against the rugged stop and cut the part. SawGear eliminates the time wasted by measuring and marking every cut and gives fast and accurate cuts every time.
