Test Cuts with Metal Cutters
Did you know that we make test cuts at our location? We use our in-house saws for metal cutting to cut material for potential customers. This means that while the cuts are being made, a video is created for the customer. After that the customer can then review the video and examine the cut quality before purchasing.
The video below shows the Metal Cutting Radial Arm Saw at our factory location making test cuts through aluminum.
This customer has a business in the sign industry. He wanted a bevel cut made on a specific extrusion. By swiveling the motor, we were able make a clean cut that was 3″-4″ deep.
Our test cut saw at our factory features an electronic power cross feed that enables push button operation of the saw. Pneumatic clamps are used to hold the material in place.
The Metal Cutting Radial Arm Saw series is perfect for sign manufacturers, the billboard and sign industry, awning manufacturers, the curtain wall industry and many more.
EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: DAVE BROWN, CUSTOMER SERVICE
When you call in to Original Saw these days, there is a good chance that Dave is the one that will answer your phone call. Dave started at Original Saw Company just over two years ago and has been a fantastic addition to the team. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of our products, other tools and renovations.
His primary jobs are customer service, serializing new saw orders and scheduling production. Above all, as a former Marine, Dave jumps in and helps out whenever he is needed.
What is your favorite thing to sell? Why?
Metal Cutters for special applications. It is fun to hear and see what our customers are doing in their respective fields and how our machines help simplify and streamline that process.
What do customers ask you most frequently?
Customers want to know much assembly is required for our saws. They are often relieved to hear that our saws ship fully assembled except for the legs. They also want to know what kind of electrical service is needed. Since our saws come in a wide variety of voltages, it’s always good to know what you need for power before the machine ships so it can be set up appropriately.
What’s the best part of your job?
I enjoy interacting with all kinds of people from all over the place! It is crazy how SMALL the world really is!!
