Woodworking Shows Coming to West Springfield This Weekend
WEST SPRINGFIELD — The Woodworking Shows are coming to the Eastern States Exposition this weekend, Jan. 13-15. Boilard Lumber, a local, family-owned supplier of building supplies, welcomes show attendees to see live demonstrations of DeWalt, Fein, and Porter-Cable tools.
“With the right tools, you can finish any job,” said Bob Boilard, vice president of Boilard Lumber. “This is a great opportunity for professionals and do-it-yourself enthusiasts to see the latest advancements in technology by some of the most popular tool manufacturers. We’ll be showcasing many different tools, and I’m really excited to demonstrate the DeWalt track saw that delivers precise, straight, splinter-free cuts with a unique, continuous anti-kickback mechanism and riving knife that prevents kickback when engaged. This tool was also designed with optimum ergonomics in mind, which means it’s comfortable to use and precise.”
Boilard Lumber will also be demonstrating the MultiMaster series of Fein tools, including blade and dust extractors, which are available for sale.
