Here at Bushton Manufacturing, we take pride in long-lasting, well-built tools like the Hawk line. Hawk Woodworking Tools started as Pruitt in 1929 in the town of Pleasant Hill, MO. RB Industries (RBI) bought Pruitt in 1972 and moved the company to Harrisonville, MO. In 2007, RBI sold out to an investment group who called the company Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC and moved the company outside Garden City, MO.
In March of 2009, the investment group closed the doors of Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC. On April 14th, less than a month later, we, Bushton Manufacturing, LLC purchased Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC (formerly RBI), moved it to our facilities in Bushton, KS and combined it with our other operations.
We enjoy hearing from customers, many of whom have had their machines for 20+ years. We will always make an effort to get the right parts to the right place and we strive to ensure customer satisfaction.
The website has continued to make improvements. We now have pages available for viewing on the BishopCLAMP, VerticalCLAMP, JointABILITY, and the BM series scroll saws. Simply find what you are looking for in the product page and click on the picture. Each page also has a 'buy now' button to take you to our webstore where you can purchase these products. Watch for more updates as we add pages on the RouterSHOP and other equipment.
It's been a hectic past couple of months for us here at Bushton Manufacturing. Unveiling the BishopCLAMP at the Cedar Rapids show, then having two other shows in a month's time has been an exciting ride. Nikole and Scott are looking forward to the May show in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. For more information check out the link from the February 15, 2013 update.
The BishopCLAMP page is now up and running. Just click on Products and then scroll down and click on BishopCLAMP or the picture to check it out. The clamping system and extra pieces are also available in the webstore. The Scroll Saw page is also up and running. Click on Products and then on either of the Hawk Saw pictures to view this page. There is also a Buy Now option that will take you directly to the scroll saws page of the webstore. Expect more pages to be available as we continue to improve the website and our webstore!

For those who have been expecting us up in Wisconsin this year, the show holders have announced that they will not be holding a show this year, though they still intend to have a show next year. Bushton Manufacturing is currently in the process of discussing with other vendors and nearby hobbyists and venues hosting a show of our own during the first week of August. No specifics have been decided, but expect updates as they are. The Texas Woodworkers show is one we hope to attend. We are still working out the details, but if all goes well, we will see everyone there!
Uploaded new version of Tools and Accessories catalog. Version 5A includes an expanded section on the Hawk Precision Scroll Saw and it's accessories, a new section on the BishopCLAMP including many pictures from Intarsist and inventor Homer Bishop, and much more!
As we prepare to move forward into the new year, the holidays are a perfect time for people to reflect on where we've been. It is a time to remember how we came to be where we are now and plan for the future. We here at Bushton Manufacturing, makers of Hawk tools, could never have succeeded in rebuilding the strength and reliability that is the Hawk name without you. To our loyal customers who call in to tell us how amazing their machine is or how much happiness it has brought to the world, we thank you. To our new customers who have only been using your machines a short while, thank you for choosing Hawk and we hope your Hawk product brings you and everyone around you great joy. From all of us here at Bushton Manufacturing, to all of you enjoying or considering the Hawk product,
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
