Edgebanders allow you to glue laminate and other materials onto the edges of your work pieces for an exceptional, decorative look. These machines heat the glue for you and apply it consistently to your edge material. The banding machines in this category work best when you put the edging on a piece before you install it so you can ensure the tightest possible fit.
An edge banding machine applies glue to plastic or thin wooden trim, and then glues it to substrates like plywood, MDF and chipboard. If you make a lot of furniture, like bookshelves, tables, entertainment centers and plant stands, this tool is indispensable. Run the piece you're working on along the tool and it will attach and trim the edging automatically--no heat gun required. Edgebanders lay down an even adhesive coating to prevent peeling, bubbles or other irregularities that could reduce the quality of your craftsmanship.
These bench and stationary machinery tables come with cutting blades to make the exact length of edging that you need for each piece. The most accurate edge banding machines come with non-slip feet to give you a consistent, worry-free workspace. Manual-feed models let you control the length of the edging strip with ease. If you plan to use thicker edging material, you might need to plane down the inner edge somewhat so the glue has a place to sit and the strip can still lay flat.
An edge banding machine saves you time during the final stages of your woodworking jobs. It also delivers a level of precision that a you just can't achieve by hand. Carefully review available features and select the right model for your needs from among the various edgebanders for sale from Acme Tools.
