The Good and The Great at IWF Atlanta 2012

We’re into day two of the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center, and the woodworking industry is alive and well. The convention center is bustling with hobbyists, DIY enthusiasts and OEMs all looking for the latest and greatest in machinery, tooling, software, materials, accessories and, of course, linear slides and rotary guides (check out our woodworking capability sheet). The air is thick with sawdust, wood chips, dust and excitement.

With more than 10,000 attendees this year interested in furniture manufacturing, cabinetry, architectural woodworking, material processing and other related industry professionals from all over the globe, we’ve met some very talented folks — from custom puzzle creations inspired by M.C. Escher to a large scale model of Yoda’s head, there’s much to look over.

If you’re attending the show this week, stop by our booth to meet with one of our project engineers and our local sales team. We’re also passing out WD40 pens, microtools, and even $50 gift cards to (just subscribe to our monthly newsletter with your business card for the daily drawing). Congrats to Trevor from New York, yesterday's 4:00 p.m. gift card winner. What’s been your favorite part of the show so far?

Below is a short video of our booth we posted on YouTube yesterday from the show floor. We’ve got lots on display including our recently released MadeWell Radial Wheel (a linear guide wheel designed for radial loading conditions). We also have a sneak peek showing of a new linear guide system launching this fall. Not at the show? Follow us on Twitter at or on Instagram as BishopWisecarver.
