Axminster Tools & Machinery has just completed a deal which will give the company exclusive rights to sell Leigh products throughout the UK and Ireland. This new arrangement came into effect at the start of 2015.

Canadian company Leigh Industries, established over 30 years ago, is the most innovative and highest quality manufacturer of dovetail jigs. The Leigh range includes the award winning D4R Pro, Super Jigs and the new RTJ400 Dovetail Jig. All Leigh jigs come with a five year warranty.

President of Leigh Industries Matt Grisley commented: “Making and distributing the world's best router joinery jigs requires commitment, dedication and direct communication with end users. Axminster Tools & Machinery has been providing this to its customers in the UK for over 40 years, and we at Leigh look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with them. To be able to have a personal demonstration of Leigh in every store is the perfect way to see why Leigh is number one worldwide.”

A demonstration of these machines can be arranged at any Axminster store. Staff have been trained to show just how easy it is to create perfect dovetails. There is also the opportunity for customers to have their routers set up for free when they purchase a Leigh jig. For more information about this and to book in advance, customers are asked to contact their nearest store.

Axminster also offers a one day introductory course to Leigh Jigs in its Skill Centres in Axminster and Sittingbourne. Dates and further details about the course can be found at
