Woodworking machinery

Here at Kendal Tools, we understand that choosing the right woodwork machinery is no easy task and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the vast range of tools available. That’s why we are always on hand to guide and advise you, should you require any assistance.

Saws for woodworking

Whatever project you’re embarking on – and whether you’re an experienced carpenter, cabinetmaker or consider yourself a dab hand at DIY – it’s highly likely that you will have to cut rough timber lengths. A good saw should do the trick – but they come in all shapes and sizes and are reserved for different types of cuts and materials. How do you know which is best?

A circular saw is a staple in workshops and, exactly as its name suggests, it has a round/circular blade with sharp teeth that tear through the wood. Though they are mostly used for rough carpentry, they can cut straight, clean lines. It simply depends on the blade you’re using (i.e. ripping blades, crosscut blades or combination blades).

Mitre saws are ideal for making precise angled cuts through wood, laminate and arcatrive – and can be found within our range of woodworking machinery below. These are exceptionally versatile machines and allow for a combination of mitre and bevel cuts.

When it comes to ripping through large pieces of wood or making intricate curved cuts, you can’t go wrong with a bandsaw machine. Available in various sizes, these power tools consist of a continuous band of steel with a serrated toothed edge that stretches between two or more wheels. And we supply bandsaw blades to suit every task.

Planing and thicknessing,  sanding supplies for woodwork

Once the wood pieces are cut to a rough shape, you’re going to need more woodwork machinery to give them an attractive, finished appearance. Planer thicknessers are great for this and can shave off wood fibres – allowing the workpiece to take shape and become progressively smoother.

Although frequently overlooked, sanding machines are a must-have tool in workshops today and guarantee a smooth, perfectly-shaped surface whilst emphasising the beauty of the wood’s natural grain.

Aside from saws and sanders, we are delighted to supply other essential woodworking tools – here at Kendal Tools – including floor standing electric fans, generators, heaters, pressure washers, spindle moulders, woodturning lathes and chucks, to name but a few. Whatever it is you need, we are confident that we stock it.

Are The Woodworking Machines Regulations 1974 still relevant?

Still commonly referenced in the industry, the Woodworking Machines Regs 1974 were repealed and replaced by the later Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1992, commonly abbreviated to PUWER. They originally covered how to safely use woodworking machines, including: • Circular saws • Rip saws • Straight-line edging machines • Narrow band saws • Planing machines • Vertical spindle moulders • Extraction equipment and maintenance • Lighting and noise PUWER also focuses on the health and safety basics of using woodworking equipment including training, maintenance, using the machines as intended, and health and safety measures for anyone who uses work equipment. Following this is good practice for anyone who owns and uses woodworking machinery, either for personal or business use, helping keep woodworkers safe and their machinery in the best conditions – helping them last longer. Employers may also refer to the additional Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) – this gives managers, supervisors, and dutyholders practical advice, covering training, information dissemination, and guarding.

Common woodworking machine brands

Woodworking tools come in all shapes and sizes and can be supplied by a wide range of different manufacturers – but whom should you trust? The biggest names in the DIY- field tend to be manufacturers such as Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, and Milwaukee.

These include: • Charnwood • Fox Machines • Draper Tools • Holzmann Machinery • Nardi & Nardi Air Compressor • Scheppach • Sedgwick • SIP • Tigren • Whitehall Tools • Zipper As woodworking is such a varied field, not all woodworking tools and manufacturers will be relevant to you.
