Keith Malmstadt-Great Lake Woods:
I’ve been working with the folks at Scarlett since my first days at Great Lake Woods. Not being a true woodworker, a CPA by training, I relied heavily on Jim Scarlett and his team for guidance and advice on several aspects of wood moulding and component manufacturing. I have made significant investments with the help of Scarlett and feel I have one of the more progressive factories in the area working in the woodworking industry.
George Nickell-Nickell Moulding, Inc:
I started my business with the help of Jim Scarlett some 35 years ago and placed one of the most important orders of our history just a few months ago. Thats how long we have trusted Scarlett and their superior lines of woodworking machinery. Our new Weinig Moulding cell is performing as advertised and will keep us growing and competitive in the years to come. We will continue to rely on Scarlett for our capital equipment requirements.
Ed Hammer-Wooden Hammer, Ltd:
As a medium sized cabinet shop, we have always been in need of a variety of woodworking machines. As we grew to require more automation and labor saving equipment, the guys at Scarlett were always our first choice. The solid lines of machinery and product knowledge gave us confidence that we were getting the best machines for the job. We appreciate the knowledgable service from Scarlett.
Wes Mcgee-FABLab Director, University of Michigan:
The team at Scarlett was very helpful in the configuration and planing of our most recent purchase of a CR Onsrud 5 axis router. This machine tool has allowed us to build on the capabilities of our two other Onsrud 3 axis CNC machines. We have used the 5 axis for everything from complex hardwood furniture components, to large composite molds out of tooling board utilizing all 36 inches of the Z travel. Recently we had the opportunity to fabricate the awards for the “MOBI” prize. By our standards this was a complex part requiring some unique machining strategies to be successful. We also took it as an opportunity to really explore the machines capabilities in aluminum machining. The OSAI control used by Onsrud allows the programmer to balance high speed roughing performance with fine finishing control, which is really evident in a part that requires an “as machined” finish. The client was very impressed with the results.
