Lake Erie Toolworks

Lake Erie Toolworks has been in business since July 2008 designing, building and selling the finest quality woodworking tools available.

Since one of the first tools that a woodworker should have in their workshop is a sturdy and functional workbench, that's where they focused our initial development efforts, namely by designing and building the finest wooden vise screws and related components available for your workbench.  These vise screw kits, crafted from solid hard maple, are fast, smooth and will provide you with years of enjoyment.

Lake Eire Toolwork's Moxon Vise, which is portable and very simple to use will allow you to cut dovetails and mortise and tenon joints anywhere, even on your kitchen table.  

Their latest product called the "ClampGAUGE System" takes the guesswork out of glue-ups and allows you to achieve the perfect glue up pressure while clamping boards together.  This provides a properly glued joint which will be stronger and will last longer.

Lake Erie Toolworks are also now in the design and development stage for an expanding range of additional woodworking tools that will help you be the best woodworker possible. As with any Lake Erie tool, they are built to last and you'll be proud to pass them down to generations of your family.
