Open house in Maine-4-27-19
« on: April 28, 2019, 11:50:43 AM »
Yesterday, I traveled to Woodmizer Maine's open house.
It was a cold rainy day all morning while I was there. They even had some snow banks in the parking lot.

They had lots of demonstrations of mills:



And lots of equipment on hand.
Bed extension:


wood splitter:


Around 9am they announced that there was a blade presentation in the lunch room:




Randy Panko from Indy gave a nice presentation about all the different blade types they make and sell. And answered lots of questions.

Shortly after that they had a "ribbon" cutting ceremony for the new office addition.
But they decided to not use a "ribbon" but to use a piece of slab:

Unfortunately the guy with the chain saw was faster than my shutter finger on my cell phone.

But here is a tour of their new office space:
Maureen at his work station:

Another workstation:

A nice bench for customer to use while waiting their turn, I know cause that's where I was for a while.

Some unique shelves for products:


Some fancy decorations:


A very bright and new place for sure.

A good time was had by all.
