 Felker Stone & Tile Saw Accessories 
Felker began as a small, family-owned company founded by Mr. Walton A. Felker. A skilled chemist and pharmacist, he had observed the need for engineered circular diamond blades to replace the crude metal disks then used for cutting ceramic tile, minerals and geological specimens. In 1924, Mr. Felker invented and began commercial production of the world's finest notched edge impregnated diamond blade - the Rimlock.

The Rimlock blade was an immediate success. By the time World War II began, Mr. Felker had designed a full series of cut-off machines. These included tile saws, several industrial models for cutting glass, ceramics, carbide tool tips and precision models which, combined with Rimlock diamond blades, were ideal for cutting quartz frequency crystals for radios and walkie-talkies. The importance of Felker's contribution to the success of the war was considerable.

Mr. Walton A. Felker's invention of the Rimlock blade led him to develop many other types of diamond, diamond core drills, and the precision machines on which to use them. Always the innovator, he caused the name "Felker" to be synonymous with quality diamond tools used all over the world.

Today, Felker continues its rich tradition as an industrial leader in tile and masonry saws as well as diamond blades and abrasives. Production on the Rimlock had ceased as technological advancements have allowed for new innovation and design that have increased quality and performance. Products such as the Tile Master® Tile Saw and the Pavermate™ Masonry saw, along with all other Felker blades and equipment have contributed to Felker's success. At present Felker is a division of Husqvarna Construction Products North America. Felker's corporate office is in Olathe, Kansas, with two manufacturing facilities in the United States
