SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA - The grand prize awarded to the fastest sander in the modified class at the 2013 National Championship Belt Sander Races on July 25 at the AWFS®Fair will be the SawGear Miter Saw Automated Stop Gauge donated by TigerStop LLC. The SawGear System streamlines the entire building process from framing to finish with automatic length measuring for miter or chop saws, significantly reducing the time required to measure materials.

SawGear is portable, rugged, and accurate to plus or minus 1/128 inch, says the manufacturer. It can be installed on the right or left side of miter saws and saw stands. Known for ease of use, the dimension required is simply entered on the keypad and SawGear moves into position. Then, the material is placed against the SawGear’s stop and is ready to cut. The SawGear provided by TigerStop is the 8-foot working length (Model SG-08) that has a retail value of $,2795.

AWFS®Fair attendees are encouraged to register early to participate in the race. For more information about Belt Sanding Racing and the BSRA, event rules and regulations, or to register to compete, visit
