Title: Lee Marshall of Knew Concepts passed away
Post by: Chris Wong on July 11, 2017, 11:55 PM
I just saw on their website that Knew Concepts founder Lee Marshall passed away this year. I met him once or twice. I enjoyed talking to him and now own three of his saws (been eying their powered saw! LINK (http://knewconcepts.com/power.php)). I'm saddened by this news.

Great guy and a huge loss for the community.

Lee was a gem of a person.  Wicked smart and with a great sense of humor.  I miss him.

For those of you who never bought one of his saws, they came in a pizza-sized box.  The box was
printed with check blocks for different options such as size, model, material, etc.  The last option box,
which I never saw checked off was "extra cheese."

I hope someone keeps the company going.  The saws are great.
