In March of 2009, the investment group closed the doors of Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC. On April 14th, less than a month later, we, Bushton Manufacturing, LLC purchased Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC (formerly RBI), moved it to our facilities in Bushton, KS and combined it with our other operations.

Here at Bushton Manufacturing, we take pride in long-lasting, well-built tools like the Hawk line. Hawk Woodworking Tools started as Pruitt in 1929 in the town of Pleasant Hill, MO. RB Industries (RBI) bought Pruitt in 1972 and moved the company to Harrisonville, MO. In 2007, RBI sold out to an investment group who called the company Hawk Woodworking Industries, LLC and moved the company outside Garden City, MO.
Yet again we change our homepage for sad news, this time for the entire woodworking community. Homer Bishop, a staple of the intarsia community and original designer for the Hawk Bishop Clamp, passed away on the 18th of October. He was an amazing person who had a strong passion for woodworking.
We are also beginning our sales season and in his memory we have reduced the price of the Hawk Bishop Clamp from $195 to $160. We have a limited supply so purchase your Hawk Bishop Clamp today!
It is with a heavy heart that we report we have lost another member of the Hawk family. Lea Orth, sister to owners Nilus and Loren and Aunt to Nikole died suddenly on Friday. She was our outreach program, calling customers to let them know when we would be attending a show in their area. She was an amazing woman and will be sorely missed.
The storms that rolled through our area Saturday night were echoed in our hearts, and the damage they left behind has been extensive. There are still those in our community who are without power and we are attempting to get things back in order. We ask that you have patience while we continue to assess and repair all of the damage done.
In other news, we have added a detailed instructional video from the old RBI archives for the HAWK RouterSHOP to the videos page and to the RouterSHOP products page. Stop by those pages and check out the video! It's sure to make you reconsider just how much a single tool can do!
October has arrived and Bushton Manufacturing is as busy as ever! Nikole has returned from maternity leave and is helping us get back into our usual preparations for the upcoming holiday season. The end of the year is always our busiest as we receive more and more calls for orders and technical questions. As we come closer to the end of the year, we will be updating more frequently with more exciting news.
It is hard to believe it is already August. Bushton Manufacturing has had a very busy year so far preparing for our newest member of the HAWK family! Baby Connor was born to Nikole and Scott in late July! While Nikole is on maternity leave, Adreann will be moving from part-time to full-time in the office. Nikole will be back in the office soon!
Please be aware that our local phone company has been having some connectivity issues, especially this past week. We apologize for the inconvenience and dropped calls. They hope to have the issues resolved soon, but we ask that you bear with us while they resolve the issues.
We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We attended several woodworking shows this last year but, at the moment we do not have any woodworking events confirmed for 2017, but we will post them in our Events Calendar below as soon as new information becomes available.
We'd like to thank all of our customers for helping us turn 2016 into a successful year and we hope to assist you with all of your 2017 woodworking needs! Whether you have been a member for 30 years or just a few days, we proudly continue to provide service to everyone who has joined Hawk Woodworking Tools Family! Please check back regularly for new announcements on products, events and our company!

Bushton Manufacturing would like to apologize for some of the recent delays in answering and returning calls. Adreann West, our afternoon CSR has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently undergoing many tests with chemo to follow and a long road to recovery. This means that Nikole is working full time again with both little ones in the office. We ask that you keep conversation to a minimum when you call in for repairs and order online whenever possible.
Nilus has been busy at the shop trying to keep up with machine maintenance and part production since Scott lost two fingers on his left hand back in September. This has meant that he is also less available to answer calls. We ask your patience and understanding while we work through this difficult time to get you the parts and machines you need to keep making sawdust.
