Lake Erie Toolworks has been in business since July 2008 with one mission in mind: to design, build and sell the finest quality woodworking tools available.
Since one of the first tools that a woodworker should have in their shop is a sturdy and functional workbench, that's where we focused our initial development efforts, namely by designing and building the finest wooden vise screws and related components available for your workbench. These vise screw kits, crafted from solid hard maple, are fast, smooth and will provide you with years of enjoyment.
Our Moxon vise which is portable and very simple to use will allow you to cut dovetails and mortise and tenon joints anywhere, even on your kitchen table.
Our latest product called the "ClampGAUGE System" takes the guesswork out of glue-ups and allows you to achieve the perfect glue up pressure while clamping boards together. This provides a properly glued joint which will be stronger and will last longer.
We are also now in the design and development stage for an expanding range of additional woodworking tools that will help you be the best woodworker possible. As with any Lake Erie tool, they are built to last and you'll be proud to pass them down to generations of your family.
We are located in Erie, Pennsylvania with our Office location at 5121 Lexington Street, Erie, PA 16509 and our Manufacturing location at 1234 Irwin Drive, Unit #22, Erie, PA 16505
