Woodworking and allied machinery

Certain basic machines are indispensable to every workshop even where hand work predominates. These are circular table saw; radial arm-saw; band-saw; planers; spindle moulder! shaper; mortiser; horizontal borer; overhead table router; drill-press; bench-grinder; sanders and lathes. If much veneer-work is done then either a screw-operated or vacuum-bag veneerpress will need a high priority, while production shops would place the dovetailing-machine and belt sander high on the list. Where it is intended to install only the most basic machines then obviously the table saw, planer and band-saw will take pride of place.
