Who We Are


In South Texas when you hear someone say ACME Saw and Tool most people think of chainsaws, and for good reason.  The Perkins Family, for 27 years, has developed a nickname for their shop, "The Chainsaw Headquarters."  If it has anything to do with a chainsaw you can find it at ACME.  Down thru the years though the Perkins family has grown the business to a full service handheld two cycle lawn equipment sales and service store featuring STIHL outdoor power equipment.  We believe STIHL is the TOP of the line or as good as it gets you might say.

The store was originally opened in 1957 by Sam Bailey as a sharpening service and in the mid 1960's Mr. Bailey started selling chainsaws.  Mr. Jim Perkins bought the business in 1982 along with his son Ben as a partner.  Jim and Ben ran the shop for a couple of years then Ben decided to pursue his ranching heritage and moved on.  Cy, the youngest son, started sharpening saws and anything else that could be sharpened in 1987 at the age of 15.  Cy and Jim currently run the store and still offer the best sharpening service for miles around.

Back in the service department Mickey Lange came to work for us in 1999.  Mickey is more than an employee his is part of the family.  He is hands down the best two cycle technician in South Texas. 

At ACME our goal is to provide superior servie.  We are a small shop at little hard to find but well worth the effort to find.

Another division of ACME is their tree service. We currently have a three man crew that thake prind in their sculpting, trimming, removal and stump grinding.  Their schedule is full caring for their commercial and residential customers.  We like to say that we leave the job cleaner than we found it.

So call or come by and see us.  We are little hard to find but well worth the effort!
