October 3rd, 2017 – The company has been selling on the internet through their own website and eBay for over twelve years. Their main line of business is in the gems, minerals and lapidary field. For those unfamiliar with the term, “lapidary” means relating to the art of engraving, cutting or polishing stones. They provide various aspects of the rough materials for jewelry designers and hobbyists, as well as natural and finished specimens for collectors.
In June of 2015 EAGems expanded their line with the introduction of their first “gadget” under their own brand of EAGems – an electronic digital caliper. The precision measuring tool fit nicely in their niche but also had a much broader appeal, with a high demand by other fields such as woodworkers, modelers, arts and crafts, mechanics, engineers and more. They made them available through Amazon where they have become among the most popular and highly rated digital calipers offered there.
So, their customer base has waited with high expectations to find out what new gem they would add to their line next.
Owner Edward Hedgecock recently revealed, “Our newest addition to our gadget line is a multipurpose Butane soldering iron/torch.” He indicated that this product still fits well in their niche since it can be used for soldering and brazing metals for jewelry and lapidary designs, “but again has a broader appeal since this type of tool is often used in the areas of electronics, DIY, arts and crafts, wood carving, and so forth.” It comes with seven different attachments for soldering, hot knife, small welding jobs as well as a torch.
