Judging for the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards has been completed and BORA Tool has received an award for their QuickCut Circular Saw Cutting Guide. A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers.


Introduced earlier this year, the QuickCut is an all-in-one tool designed to achieve precise measurements and cuts each and every time. The judges’ provided the following feedback on the QuickCut: “What’s really handy here is the ability to use Bora’s QuickCut to make perfect crosscuts and common miter cuts without the need for a miter saw. Since the QuickCut is less than $25, it’s an easy addition to make for any Pro or DIYer who wants to use their circular saw for a wider array of cuts.”


“We are excited to be recognized for developing and introducing product that meets the needs of our customers,” said Rod Bonham, BORA Product Manager. “Being acknowledged by our peers is a nice reward for the hard work that goes into new product innovation.”


Hundreds of power tools, hand tools, fasteners, and accessories were judged, and winners were decided based on industry innovation. Winners demonstrated achievement in any combination of the following: innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, and value. The Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.


This year, over 60 different tool manufacturers submitted nearly 300 tool entries in dozens of categories for a shot to win a 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Award.


"Manufacturers are consistently improving their tools. Each year, however, some exceed the norms and develop products which truly deserve recognition. Business owners, builders, contractors, and tradespeople really need to understand which products can help them work smarter and more efficiently," said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. "Often, they can also save a lot of money in either material costs or time-savings. That innovation goes straight into their pocketbook."
