Sourcing & Solution Configuration

We are a one-stop resource for all your workholding requirements. We can help you configure the most efficient and cost-effective solutions, using our tools, your tools, and/or tools sourced from select vendors.

If we don’t make an available size or style, we will recommend and acquire tools that meet our high standards. We also source high-quality unique items, including  stainless steel scroll chucks, dovetails, expanding collets and more.
