Tualatin, OR (PRWEB), August 19, 2010 – SawGear, a portable, precise and rugged automated length measuring system for miter saws that streamlines the building process from framing to finish received Journal of Light Construction’s highest honor. JLC is a monthly publication for builders and remodelers looking for jobsite solutions. The July issue of JLC includes their annual Most Innovative Products of 2010, a collection of problem-solving tools and materials and SawGear was among the recipients.

“In the building industry margins are thin and competition is aggressive; contractors turn to industry experts such as JLC to discover new tools and materials to improve their job performance,” said Matt Harris, chief marketing officer, SawGear.  “SawGear was developed for contractors to increase their productivity, accuracy, and bottom line and we’re thrilled that JLC selected SawGear for this prestigious award.”

According to the JLC review, “SawGear kicks error out of the equation and could end up paying for itself in time and material saved.”  SawGear helps framers and finish carpenters work 30% faster and smarter rather than waiting for cut pieces or fixing mis-cut work.  Jobs are completed ahead of schedule with SawGear and quality workmanship has become the norm.

SawGear is easy to use, sets up in minutes, and creates accurate cuts every time.  Simply attach the SawGear to any miter saw, enter the required dimension, slap the material against the rugged stop and cut the part. SawGear solves the problem of wasted time and inaccuracies caused by measuring and marking multiple times for every cut.
