In the 1980s and '90s this firm made an overarm tablesaw blade guard and dust collector. One of the original partners left the business and started a direct competitor, Exaktor, which made nearly identical products.

Sommerville was acquired by General Manufacturing Co., which made improvements to the design and continue to manufacture it under the General name.
