Working with Wood will be introducing their latest international tools and equipment at the George show next month. The event will take place over three days from September 22 at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, George Campus.
The Working with Wood team have planned demonstrations over the 3 days of this year’s show, featuring some of the latest innovative technically advanced tools and equipment in the country today.
All their international blue chip brands have exciting new products in their range and many products have been upgraded. All the latest models will be on the show.
Just to touch on a few new products – Festool, who have been celebrating their 90 years in business, have introduced their new Cordless Airstream charging systems. A combination of the Airstream SCA 8 rapid charger and the Airstream BP 18 Li 5.2 AS battery pack reduces the cooling time of the battery and improves the entire charging process by up to 65 percent. This means that battery packs are ready to use again more quickly.
Also, new from Festool is a complete new unique system for their dust extractors. Plus, their latest state of the art Kapex KS 60 Sliding Compound Miter Saw, this unit takes Miter sawing to a whole new level. 3 new sanders have also been introduced and the latest in cordless drills and power tools is said to be the most innovative cordless range in the world today.
Alpen Austria who is also celebrating its 60 years in business, launched their most technically advanced new drill bits - the Sprint Master and Pro series- offering a much shorter drilling time, three times longer service life, with narrow tolerances and high concentricity and lasting twice as long.
The Austrian company are worldwide leaders in the drill bit industry, these new products will further cement their famous line, Drill Better.
Kreg have also introduced many new products. One particularly outstanding unit is their new one -of- a -kind Mobile Project Centre with a huge number of new features. It provides a portable workspace that can be used for a wide variety of project tasks. In one mode, it’s a sturdy sawhorse that’s great for supporting long boards as you cut. Flip the large tables into position and this product offers the features you’d expect to find in a high-end stationary workbench. Additional tables can be added for more length and breadth for longer work pieces or jobs.
The Clamp Trak and included Bench Clamp with Automaxx® auto-adjusting technology provide multiple ways to hold workpieces. The open tables can support up to 158kgs and have built-in storage trays, holsters for your drill, and more. A shelf underneath holds up to 11.3kg of supplies and tools out of the way but nearby while you work.
In addition to being great for general project use, the Mobile Project Centre is perfect for Kreg Joinery. Whether you’re drilling pocket holes, clamping cases or face frames together, or preparing your project for final assembly, the Mobile Project Centre makes Kreg Joinery the perfect solution.
