Lenox Saw Blade Factory Tour - What a Fantastic Place!
I was invited to do a spectacular factory tour where they make Lenox saw blades of all types. The tour was on September 13, 2018.
Watching all the blades being made in just hours, I marveled at the demand. If all those blades are not bought each day, they start to stack up somewhere!
Watch this video of some of what I saw. Unfortunately, much of what I saw on the tour was so secret, they don't allow photos or video to be shot. But there's some great stuff in the following video to give you an idea of what it's like in a factory.
Here are some photos you may like:

When I checked in at the hotel, a very nice backpack was waiting for me. Look at all that was inside: polo shirt, t-shirt, hat, insulated mug, expensive pen and tablet with cover, fig & cherry coffee beans, snack bars, water, and drink can sleeves. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
This is the typical floor in much of the 13-acre factory. The wood blocks are 1 and 1/4-inch thick. They protect the saw blades from damage should they fall to the floor. The workers also appreciate it as it's easier to stand on than concrete. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
