Brian and Christina McKahan are the owners and sole employees of True Tool Innovations a high-precision manufacturer of cutting tools and instruments. The couple opened their business last month at 381, Rt. 10 in the yellow building that was the previous home to Formcasters. 

The building was ideal for the business since it was already equipped with a three-phase electrical system, as opposed to the one-phase system used by residential properties. Currently the business is operating three machines, but the MaKahans hope to expand after the economy improves. 

True Tool Innovations works with companies and individuals to supply tool from print to production in the medical, aerospace, high performance racing, industrial, dental, woodworking, and industrial industries. Brian is known for working 12-hour days. 

Brian and Christina both worked for Rollamatic in Chicago before moving to New Hampshire. The couple now lives in Grantham.
