Welcome to our blog!

We are taking a modern approach to getting our message out entering our second century of existence! In this blog, we will write about all things relating to MANUAL MACHINE TOOLS.

First of all, what is a blog? A blog, according to Wikipedia, is “a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web.”

This blog will cover news and advice articles (or posts) as well as commentary on machine tools. As this is the official LeBlond site, there will be an emphasis on LeBlond Ltd. products. Our goal, however, is to provide you with great information on machine tools that will aid your purchasing decisions.

There will be enough technical information to keep you informed and enough entertainment value to keep you coming back! We value the feedback of our readers. If you have suggestions for content, let us know! If you have comments, leave them below. Share our content and join us on social media outlets like Twitter, FaceBook and LinkedIn.

Finally, we want to thank you for discovering us. We hope you enjoy our newly redesigned website and blog. Check us out again!
