In the woodwork industry a host of machines and tools help craftsmen manufacture the materials they need.
Woodworking machinery supports just about every possible woodwork activity you can imagine. Simple planers both manual and electronic help craftsman manipulate the width of wood and make clean cuts. Available with one, two, three or even four knives, planers are suitable for large or small scale projects. Sanders are another type of woodworking machinery which are used almost daily in a woodwork environment. Disc sanders are a great choice for heavy duty jobs and can instantly create a smooth finish using a stationary base. For jobs involving large quantities of products, a drum sander is the wise choice. It’s a high speed option and gives the operator the freedom to use both hands.
Saws are the woodwork tool which springs to most people’s minds when asked about woodwork equipment. Craftsmen use saws to cut wood into predetermined shapes. Accuracy is obviously vital as is a clean cut. As with all woodworking machinery, there are a range of different saws out there so choosing the right one is important. Manual saws are rarely used apart from in domestic, DIY situations. Mechanically powered saws provide a far more accurate cut and get the job done far quicker. A table saw features a fixed blade and involves moving the wood against the rotating saw. A radial arm saw on the other hand is a mechanically powered saw which is moved manually by the operator along the required cut lines. This type of saw is perfect for cross cutting. Replacement circular saw blades are available when the blade’s sharpness becomes compromised over time.
Wood turning equipment including lathes, turning tables and chuck systems are also vital for woodwork of all types. Intricate shapes, patterns and designs are created using this specialised equipment and one of the most common uses is the creation of legs for dining room table and chairs.
