Makeys Logo In case you missed it, PanaVise was recently named “Most Repair Friendly” at the 2011 “Makey Awards”.The Makey’s (MAKE Magazine Industry Maker Awards), took place this year during the world’s largest DIY event, the Maker Faire in New York.

The most unique aspect of their victory was that their nomination was a result of communication between company and user.

Their new model, 239:PV Jr. Speed Control Handle, was inspired by a user that crafted his own wooden crank to increase the opening speed of the PanaVise Jr.

The President of PanaVise, Gary Richter, then contacted the user and used his input to create this new, innovative model which occurred just months later.





Sounds like PanaVise has their eyes and ears wide open to the feedback of their customers! Great job!
