M&M Tool Announces Plans for Annual Power Tool and Machinery Show

  • Announcing plans for this year’s annual power tool and machinery show, M&M Tool and Machinery expects this year’s event to be a true success. With the support of major manufacturers from Dewalt and Makita to Bosch and Festool, and with a surplus of equipment demonstrations and product give-aways, the show anticipates a real crowd of woodworking and power tool enthusiasts.

    Salt Lake City, UT – August 1, 2010 – Thursday the ninth and Friday the tenth of September 2010, M&M Tool and Machinery invites all crafters, contractors, do-it-yourself-ers, and other power tool and woodworking enthusiasts to join them at their annual power tool and machinery show. Attracting craftsmen with up-close and in-depth equipment demonstrations, personal time with representatives from favorite power tool and machinery manufacturers, “seriously good discounts,” and free hotdogs and soda-pop, crafters and power tool users from near and far strap on their boots, skip breakfast, and head straight for M&M Tool. 

    For over seventy years M&M Tool and Machinery has taken extraordinary measures to support the woodworking community, and for over seventy years they have hosted an annual power tool and a woodworking machinery show and sale. At their showroom in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, with the lure of big bargains, intense power tools, and the always beautiful Miss Makita, hundreds of crafters flock to M&M each year to enjoy the power tooling community and to both thriftily and thoroughly restock their tool boxes. With the help of factory representatives from every industrial manufacturer like Dewalt, Porter-Cable, Delta, Makita, Bosch, Festool, Hitachi, Powermatic and many more, M&M’s tool show is, as M&M Tool’s Mallory would say, “the best kind of carnival for every kind of craftsmen.” Whether a woodworker or contractor by trade or a weekend warrior by choice, M&M’s tool show offers something to everyone. With demonstrations of the latest woodworking equipment and the most innovative power tools, the show offers valuable and new information, and a good-old-fashioned lunch, to every degree of crafter. Products slated for demonstration this year
    include Kreg Pocket-Hole Machines, the Festool 1400 EQ Router, the Festool KS 120 Kapex Miter Saw, Makita LS1216L Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw, and Delta’s 50-786 Dust Collector, 18-900L Laser Drill Press, 22-590 Planer, 40-690 Scroll Saw, among many others.

    “It’s a really special day for us over here at M&M, the show is something we plan for and anticipate all year long,” says Steve, The Man, at M&M Tool. With said tool and machinery demonstrations, substantial discounts, free prizes, free lunch, and autographs from the lovely Miss Makita, the tool show has a tendency to take on a life of its own, and, as M&M Tool veteran Mike claims, “the September tool show is looked forward to by all our local and loyal crafters; not only is our showroom full of power tools and factory reps, it’s also full of other woodworking and power tool aficionados who come to M&M to share and define their expertise.” Some patrons say they come for Miss Makita, others for the free t-shirts and etc, but the overwhelming majority of attendees at M&M’s September tool show come for the unique and friendly atmosphere. The show is, as many claim, just “like a neighborhood barbeque.”

    M&M Tool’s Josh reports that for the show “everything in the store is deeply discounted and most of the merchandise comes with free add-ons,” for example, “with the purchase of any
    cordless power tool combo kit, like Makita’s LCT200W Lithium Ion Drill-Driver and Impact Driver Combo Kit or the Dewalt DCX5200 Cordless Hammer-Drill and Circular Saw Combo Kit, you’ll receive a free battery.” Additionally, Josh adds, “with the purchase of one of our larger woodworking machines like a Powermatic 1791315 Planer or a Delta 36-981 Table Saw, we’ll also include a free mobile base.” “Whatever you need for your shop or garage, we’ve got it here,” Mike adds reminding that there is very little a good power tool can’t do and almost no power tool that can’t be found at M&M.

    Ultimately, the M&M Tool and Machinery power tool and machinery show is expected to be a success, is expected to go off without a hitch, and anticipates to please many a craftsman. As it has for decades, M&M’s tool show intends to bring together an unique community in the spirit of really great power tools and innovative responses to an ever-growing, ever-changing power tool and woodworking industry.
