Your facilities certainly have expanded. I have used my K2000 for several years and it is nice to see the facility where it was made. Thanks for the pictures.

That is quite an impressive growth of the business. What is the time-line for all that?

interpim,
This growth is over the course of a little less than 20 years. Craig Sommerfeld invented the first “Craig’s Jig” back in 1986. At that point (and for the couple of years after) he built his jigs in his small home shop. The building you see here was built down the road in Huxley, IA a few years later, when he could no longer keep up with demand.

It looks almost Log-rhythmic the builds. The go in a multiple of the previous addition.

Nice jig. I’d like to buy the new one, but I’ve got the two previous versions amd I don’t think I need a third.

Interesting post, would it be possible to get a view of the inside, of how the jigs are made… or a least the shop space inside? It would be great to see a “Mighty Machines” type video of how these tools are made.

Great Products … Great Company!

I was born and raised in Iowa (lived in Sioux City and Des Moines for many years), so I may be a bit biased, but I really find your products to be of great value in the workshop.
