Super Thin Saws (STS), located in Waterbury, VT, began as Schultz Tool Sharpening in 1976. In the 1980's, they were largely assisted by California Cedar Products Company, who had developed the special design STS uses today; this was accomplished in partnership with the Mechanical Engineering Dept. at Berkeley and California Saw & Knife Works.
What sets STS apart from others in their unique industry - designing and manufacturing thin circular saw blades for woodworking applications - is that the company’s technology packs more stiffness into a thinner package allowing some types of woodworking operations to save money by making more product from less raw material therefore improving yield and productivity. Today, the company employs 21 full time.
