Voile avalanche shovels – Made in USA
Recently after manufacturing over 1 million shovels we have retired our old shovel tooling and have precisely machined all new tooling for our shovel production. Shown here are the A and B side of the tool that forms the Voile shovel scoop. It takes a 100 ton punch press to operate this tool and make a cleanly formed Voile scoop.
While these beautiful tools were precisely CNC machined from a solid block of tool steel, the original Voile shovel tool was made in 1981 in a now defunct Salt Lake foundry where molten tool steel was poured into a sand mold. Voile – Made in USA.
