New Site Delivers More Educational Tools and Enhanced User Experience

Freud America, Inc., a premier manufacturer of superior cutting tools, announced today the launch of their new and improved website (www.FreudTools.com), featuring a dramatically enhanced design with premium look and the latest in web technologies, making it easier for woodworkers to navigate and quickly find critical information to make informed purchasing decisions.

Freud’s new, premium website includes an easy to use product search and selection capability with drill down filtering engines so that visitors can easily locate products by machine, product size/diameter, material, and product category. In addition to the enhanced search capabilities, the new website provides visitors with the ability to "Learn More" and "Compare" products when researching the solution that best fits their needs. The new website also includes an "Information Center," which provides all product support, catalogs, posters as well as videos and FAQs.

Other exciting features include:
• Buy Now Button and Dealer Locator Tool: Visitors are able to view in-stock product at dealers closet to their desired location
• Certified Freud Sharpening Service Centers: An interactive selector map that pinpoints nearby sharpeners who have agreed to adhere to the high standards required to maintain “like new” tool performance
• "Tell Us Your Freud Story": A destination where customers can provide comments, communicate their experience or provide details on the latest projects they have been working on with Freud products
• Social Media Integration: Facebook and Twitter plug-ins located on the homepage where company and product updates will appear on a regular basis as well as the ability to share product information across all major social media channels
• Freud e-Newsletter: A rich content of how-to articles and videos, as well as downloadable woodworking projects and plans

"We are thrilled to unveil the redesigned Freud website, which delivers the ultimate user experience for the woodworker and industrial cabinet shops," said Russell Kohl, President & CEO of Freud America. "Visitors will be amazed at how easy it is to find what they are looking for and to learn about Freud’s full-range of products. Our new website offers a one-stop-shop on all information regarding Freud and our products. And we’re not done! In the near future, more enhancements will be made to further make our website best in class and enrich our customer’s learning experience."

Launching late Fall is "Freud Club," a subscription-based club designed to inspire and educate the woodworker. “Freud Club” will be a great place to learn about products and projects with woodworking and technical experts, view training videos and access special deals from Freud.

In order to continuously tailor its website to meet its customer’s needs, Freud requests visitor feedback by completing a brief survey at http://www.freudtools.com/index.php/survey.

Advanced Quadra-Cut™ Four Cutter Design Now Available in 1/4” Shank

Feb 06, 2014

 Freud America, Inc. expands its revolutionary, patented Quadra-Cut™ router bit design for flawless finish with no rework to key 1/4” shank profile bits. Until now, this unique, award-winning four-cutter design was only offered in 1/2” shank router bits. With this new introduction, any woodworker or professional job site installer with a handheld router or a 1/4” collet table router will be able to get the same dramatic smooth finish that previously was reserved for the 1/2” collet router.

Freud’s Quadra-Cut™ router bits provide the cleanest finish for routing the edges of both hard and soft wood. These one-of-a-kind router bit designs employ four cutting edges, versus the industry standard of two, for a flawless finish on the most delicate of materials. Two of the carbide cutters have an up-shear angle to remove most of the stock. Then the pair of down-shear cutters make a final cut to produce an ultra clean edge. Industry standard bits that only have two cutters can leave fuzz and splinters on the top surface, especially in cross grain cuts, but Freud’s new Quadra-Cut™ bits leave a surface that requires no sanding or rework.

Freud’s Quadra-Cut™ 1/4'’ Shank Router Bits Feature:
Exclusive Freud-made TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide with Titanium is designed and manufactured by Freud specifically for each cutting application to maximize cutting life and material finish in a variety of materials. 
• Perma-SHIELD® Permanent Non-Stick Coating reduces friction and resin adhesion while preventing corrosion for less work and cleaner cuts.
• Tri-Metal Brazing consists of copper sandwiched between two layers of silver alloy to create a stronger, more impact-resistant bond between the carbide and the bit. 
• Computer Balancing reduces chatter, resulting in clean, smooth profiles.
• Multi-Axis Grinding provides consistent relief angles on the entire cutting edge, which reduces burning and provides a flawless finish.
• Kickback-Reducing Design restricts the amount of material that can be fed, reducing the effects of kickback from overfeeding.

People love the unique look of a beautifully made box joint. But interestingly, the box joint was not always admired for its beauty. Rather it was revered for its strength. In the days before modern packaging, many products came in wooden boxes that were held together with strong interlocking “box” joints; hence the name. These joints were particularly sturdy due to the increased gluing surface between the fingers of the joint… Read more
