William D. Quinn founded the W.D. Quinn Saw Company in a small shed in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1903. The business prospered as the city prepared for the 1904 World’s Fair.  From it beginning when all the sharpening was done by hand with files the company has stayed in front of the competition by adopting the latest technology.  The introduction of mechanical, gear-driven machines was followed by the arrival of single-motor machines with grinding wheels. Eventually, complex electric motors changed the game, allowing us to sharpen our customers’ saw blades automatically.
Now in its fifth generation of family ownership and operation, Quinn Saw continues to celebrate its past while looking toward the future.
Quinn moved last Summer from its facility near I-270 and Riverview Blvd to its new location in St Ann at #1 International Plaza Ct north of St Charles Rock Road near the St Ann golf course.
The Guild has toured Quinn Saw previously and has always attracted a lot of members and been an interesting tour.

 

The Quinn staff plans to have a fun breakfast at the shop for us. Pancakes and Sausage made to order.  “Tell the Guild members to not eat breakfast and come in and have breakfast on us.”  Please register so we can provide the Quinn staff with an estimate of the number of visitors.
