Jack Tracy has been President of Jack Tracy Construction for over 25 years as a General Contractor and Builder.
Jack Tracy is one of the founders of SJ2 Industries, LLC and the Managing Member responsible for the invention and distribution of the Original 3rd Hand .357 SawGuard Safety Lift.
(Patent No. 7,426,787)
With years of experience as a Framing Contractor and Carpenter, Jack recognized the need for a safer method of raising the guard and eliminating “Pinning or Shimming” the guard, or in some cases the guard has been removed entirely.
Pinning, shimming or removing the lower guard is in direct OSHA violation and subject to expensive fines, not to mention the safety of not having a lower guard to protect the user.
The lower guard has always been a hindrance in the performance of making plunge cuts or thin cuts as well as a safety issue by placing a hand on the guard lift to raise it.
The Original 3rd Hand .357™ allows the user to keep both hands on the saw while raising the the lower guard with a thumb lever of the trigger finger hand.
Keeping in mind the wear and tear a carpenter or framer subjects his saw to on a daily basis, we have manufactured and produced what we feel is extremely durable yet a light weight (adding less than 6 oz.) safety device. (See product specs)
We believe we have “revolutionized” the circular saw market and the Original 3rd Hand .357™ will reduce the number of circular saw accidents.
