  • Patent number: 8250956
    Abstract: A miter saw with work surface extensions comprises a base with a rotatable table positioned on the base. The miter saw further comprises a bevel support is that is pivotable with respect to a table surface. A cutting blade is supported by the bevel support. A work surface extension is moveably connected to the base between a retracted position and an extended position. The work surface extension provides a work surface that is substantially planar with the table surface. At least one elongated member is fixed to the work surface extension and moveably engages the base. A substantial portion of the at least one elongated member is positioned within or under the base when the work surface extension is in the retracted position. The substantial portion of the at least one elongated member is positioned between the base and the work surface extension when the at least one elongated member is in the extended position.

  • Patent number: 8181559
    Abstract: The present invention is an attachable rolling plate assembly which can be attached as a single unit to a portable cutting tool to facilitate the safe rolling movement of the portable cutting tool on the workpiece. The invention comprises a frame assembly formed from a single piece of molded material such as fiber enriched plastic having a pair of oppositely disposed longitudinal sidewalls with stabilizer fins extending therefrom, and a flat base portion having a pair of parallel stabilizer tubes molded therein. The invention further includes an adjustable bevel gear assembly by which the angle of orientation of the cutting blade can be quickly changed. The invention also includes a cutting guide assembly to facilitate a straight cut, reduce torsional rotation of the saw blade and reduce kickback of the saw.

  • Publication number: 20120111171
    Abstract: The invention features an indexable wear plate/piercing tip insert that is configured to be removably and repositionably attached to the front, nose portion of the upper, movable jaw of a metal demolition shears. The insert functions as both a wear plate and a piercing tip and is indexable in that a non-worn or less worn portion of the wear surface of the wear plate portion of the insert, and non-worn shearing and piercing edges of the piercing tip portion of the insert, can be presented simultaneously simply by rotating the insert 180° and reattaching it to the nose portion of the upper, movable jaw of a metal demolition shears.

  • Publication number: 20120103162
    Abstract: An interlocked assembly of a circular collar receivable in suspension within a sink drain fitting and an annular support slidably engaged to the collar cooperate to form a guide aligning the blade of a rotary cutting tool adjacent the seat of a retaining ring that holds the fitting in place. The sliding translation of the annular support within the collar is limited by a radially projecting ring to limit the penetration depth of the rotary saw blade mounted in the guided tool thus limiting the incidence of damage to the surrounding sink structure.

  • Publication number: 20120085208
    Abstract: There is disclosed herein a system, methods and device for creating three-dimensional decorations. The system, devices and methods disclosed operate to facilitate quick creation of relatively inexpensive and reproducible three-dimensional decorations from most any cuttable material. A pattern cutting system includes a two-part template and a cutter having a cutting blade. The template includes substantially planar first and second portions, each with a plurality of grooves therein, the cutting blade of the cutter fitting within the grooves to effectively cut material. The two portions are preferably hinged together, for example, by a living hinge, to be foldable such that the grooves in each portion align. A cuttable material, such as paper, is sandwiched and retained between the first portion and the second portion while the cutter cuts the material along the plurality of grooves.
