“If we don’t know how to fix it, we won’t sell it”

says owner Chris Tarvestad. Honest and candid, that’s how we are. The sawing industries in the woodworking and metalworking world are in need of a focused and dedicated market leader, and that’s what TS3 is. The story of TS3 is a familiar one to many. Find a need and fulfill that need with exceptional service. For over 20 years, Chris Tarvestad has been doing just that. As a field service engineer in 1998 for David Olson Sales Company, co-owner of The Service Guys in Anoka, MN and now as the leader of TS3.

Saws, Service, and Sales. It’s what we do and we strive to be better at it than anyone else. Experience brings comfortable knowledge that we can use to help you edge out the competition. Traveling to you with exceptional service and support, TS3 has the saws, we have the service, we have the blades and the parts and even the coolants and lubricants.

While the first 15 years of his career was focused squarely on the metalworking saws and fabrication equipment, Chris Tarvestad trained his sights on the woodworking crosscut market as a viable market with linear needs and began working, with the assistance of his vendors, in that direction. Woodworking saws are similar in construction and operation that aluminum extrusion saws, so the move was natural and nearly seamless.

TS3 is based out of Monticello, MN, and serve mainly the Upper Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota. Chris has traveled across the country and sometimes even performs international work upon request.
