Top 3 Power Tools Every Woodworker Should Have

by contentblvd on Jun 8, 2013

Woodworking machines are the fundamental gizmos required by a craftsman looking to set up a new carpentry shop. There is a miscellaneous anthology of woodworking power tools available on the market. However, while on a budget or perhaps if you are planning to open up a new workshop, it is paramount to invest in the most vital of machinery at first; one you simply can't do. The woodworking machinery being fairly weighty and on the bulky side, is the reason carpenters choose to work on their project entirely in one place (usually a shop) and then have the finished project delivered to the intended site.

Bandsaw

The first equipment to consider adding to your arsenal would be the Bandsaw. This tool is certainly the most versatile power tool available in the market and serves well for cutting fine arcs. It can even be substituted for the functions usually provided by a table saw. With a Bandsaw, you will be able to execute an array of cuts namely; re-cutting, miter cutting, irregular or smooth ripping and angled cuts.

Available in different blade sizes and for sharper curves, the bandsaw uses smaller blades whilst for smoother straight lines it depends on a wider blade set.

2.Router

The next tool on the recommended purchase list would be a Router. The machinery comes in two varying bases the plunge base and stationary base. As the name suggests, a stationary base router is immobile and doesn't allow for any sort of variation in depth or height. When using a router, it is suggested to make deep cuts in stages as making a single passes will run the risk of damaging the wood or defacing the finished piece.

Meanwhile, when it comes to a plunge router, you can adjust the depth as per your requirement. On the subject of what function a router plays; apart from cutting profiles for moldings in a range of shapes, the router will also allow you to add fancy edges. In addition, it is able to cut patterns, joinery, holes and dadoes and is known to produce a highly-refined and quality finishing. When seeking to invest in a router, firstly opt for a stationary and then later, if circumstances allow, invest in a plunge base router.

3.Surface Planers

Besides the aforementioned tools, the last piece of machinery that is worth adding to your repertoire is a Surface Planer. With a surface planer, you can easily modify the thickness of the stock according to your needs.

The surface planer design encompasses a set of in-feed and out-feed roller which allows the stock to slide through the machine smoothly. Furthermore, it includes a cutter head where the blades of the machinery are positioned. And lastly, it also has an adjustable table which allows you to control the ensuing thickness of the stock.
