Axminster APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator
Axminster Tools & Machinery
£229.96
This positive pressure powered respirator eliminates the drawbacks encountered with standard negative pressure face masks. The motor unit blows filtered air down over your face at a rate of 160L/min. Fatigue caused by having to suck through a filter is no longer a problem; breathing is normal and comfortable. The air exiting around the sides and bottom of the mask is at slightly higher pressure than that outside, so forms a most effective seal. Beards are not a problem. If you wear glasses, these will not fog or mist up as you breathe out. With the motor and filters mounted on the peak of the bump cap and the battery at the rear, the balance of the APF 10 Evolution unit is excellent. Combined with the low overall weight (680g), it is very comfortable. The Li-Ion batteries give you a run time of 8 hours on a full charge. The filters are easy to inspect and replace. The bump cap's outer cover is removable for washing. The unit provides respiratory protection to EN12941:1998 + A2:2008 TH1P. The bump cap gives head protection to EN812. The clear visor gives you a wide field of vision along with impact protection to EN.166.B.1. Supplied with an 8-hour battery, plus charger, two filters, a flow-rate meter and complete instructions all within a strong storage box. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) should not be used as the only means of control as it should complement other control measures such as a dust extraction system. Each RPE type and class is categorised by an assigned protection factor (APF). The APF is a number rating that indicates how much protection that RPE is capable of providing. For example, RPE with an APF of 10 will reduce the wearer's exposure by at least a factor of 10 if used properly, or, to put it another way, the wearer will only breathe in one-tenth or less of the amount of substance present in the air.

Axminster Trade Saw Horses (Pair)
Axminster
£89.95
These all-steel, folding sawhorses are immensely strong, durable and highly portable. Constructed of high-grade steel, each sawhorse can support a weight of 590kg; a pair has a capacity of 1,180kg. With their fast-open mechanism, setup is straightforward and simple. Unfolding the sawhorse reveals a material support arm at each end, designed to take 95mm high timber and 4x2 CLS timber. Alternatively, you can trim your timber to the required size. With two sawhorses, a couple of lengths of trimmed 45 x 95mm timber and a suitable sheet of ply or OSB, you can create an instant, rock solid site worktable. The sawhorse legs are telescopic, allowing you to adjust each one individually to compensate any unevenness on the ground. Also fitted with non-marking feet. Powder coating and zinc plating protect the sawhorses from corrosion and ensures a long life in a working environment. The legs fold neatly sequentially into the top rail, forming an 84 x 150 x 895mm long package, which is easily stowed in the back of a van. The sawhorses include a carry handle for easy transportation and rolled edges mean there are no sharp corners. Sawhorse length when open: 1,070mm, minimum height: 648mm (width 464mm), maximum height: 826mm (width 622mm). The sawhorses are now fitted with non-marking feet.
Axminster Rider Double Sided Diamond Bench Stone
Axminster Rider
£37.96
These 200 x 65mm double sided premium quality diamond stones give two options, just by flipping them over. We tested these extensively, medium 400G (36 micron) on one side and fine 1,000G (15 micron) on the other. Nickel plating permanently fixes the diamond particles onto the 8mm thick steel base. A chequered pattern carries away metal particles so maintaining the stone's cutting efficiency. On first use the diamond surface may seem aggressive, this is the same with all diamond sharpening stones. This is called the break-in period and will have no impact to long term performance. After a few sharpenings the stone will smooth. The resulting surface is more than capable of sharpening modern hard steels, ceramic knives as well as traditional tool steels. A protective non-slip rubber surround keeps the stone in place when in use. You can use it dry but it works far better with a splash of water.

Axminster Rider No. 92 Shoulder Plane
Axminster Rider
£67.00
The Rider No. 92 shoulder Plane Cast from fine grey iron, is precision machined, precision ground and polished to ensure accurate results. A finger recess on both sides and a well-rounded upper section combine to ensure a comfortable grip. The sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The 19mm (3/4") full width blade is micro adjustable for precise control of the depth of cut. The blade is a fraction of a smidgen wider than the body making it easier to work into the corner of a shoulder. The upper section is movable, forwards or backwards varying the width of the mouth for fine or coarse work. Removing the upper section completely, converts the plane into a chisel plane, useful when working on a frame, where the stile and rail rebates meet. A small setscrew inside the front section ensures you retain the original mouth setting when reassembling the plane. Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63, and only requires a little honing before use. Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
Axminster Rider Honing Guide
Axminster Rider
£10.96
The Axminster Rider honing guide is very similar in design to the classic Eclipse 36. It is an ideal tool for achieving a consistent bevel angle, everytime you sharpen a blade. The guide offers two tool-clamping positions. The upper jaw accommodates blades up to 78mm(3-1/8") wide. A lower V-groove secures bevel edge chisels or thin tools from 3mm(1/8") to 48mm(1-7⁄8") wide. The bevel angle depends on the blade's projection in front of the guide. Typically, plane irons in the upper jaw: 50mm(2") gives 25° and 38mm(1-1/2") gives 30°. Chisels or blades placed between the lower jaws: 40mm(1-9/16") for 25° or 30mm(1-3/16") for 30°. We recommend constructing a very simple jig to make setting quick and simple. Using a jig will guarantee consistent bevel angles everytime you sharpen. The guide's 19mm(3/4") diameter by 12mm(1/2") wide roller allows you to hone both straight cutting edges or, by slightly rocking the guide, put a crown on an edge.

Axminster Craft AC305WL Woodturning Lathe
Axminster Craft
£329.95
For those looking for a bench mounted woodturning lathe with slightly larger capacities and motor power plus the convenience of variable spindle speed with electronic control, but still within a reasonable budget, this model would be a great choice. Receive a free 3-hour woodturning session or a discount on a skill centre woodturning course, see banner below for more details. Made almost entirely in cast iron, the bed of this lathe has a finely ground top surface ensuring stability and minimal vibration during operation. The thick walled cast iron headstock and tailstock provide rigidity, coupled with strength and years of trouble-free turning pleasure. The tailstock has a 9mm bore allowing the use of a standard long-hole boring auger and features automatic ejection of centres. Quick release levers allow for easy and accurate positioning of tool rest and tailstock. The lathe is powered by a 550W DC motor with electronic speed control that provides full torque across the speed range. The spindle speed range is from 500 to 4,080rpm, with a choice of two belt ratios. The spindle nose has the very common 1" x 8tpi thread and a 2MT internal taper, so a large range of accessories is available. Solid rubber feet help to eliminate movement whilst in operation.

£19.96
A replacement, superior rip fence arrangement that will replace the flimsy fences found on many, low cost benchtop bandsaws. This is a very worthwhile upgrade that will make your machine more accurate to use. The fence is 370mm long and the rail 340mm. Some small modification work will be needed to adapt this to most machines, but this should not deter you from making this upgrade.
Axminster Precision Vernier Caliper Depth Gauge Attachment
Axminster Precision
£9.96
This vernier depth gauge attachment quickly converts your standard vernier caliper into a far more useful tool. The depth gauge attachment is precision made, once clamped to the base your vernier caliper is perpendicular to the base in both directions. The base forms a bridge across the reference surface allowing the depth rod to be lowered until it reaches the lower contact point. An accurate reading of the relative height differences can then be taken. It will fit all 150mm Axminster vernier calipers and any others with a stem width of 16mm.

Axminster Precision Ruler Square/Stop
Axminster Precision
£7.45
The Rule Stop has an anodised aluminium body with a brass locking screw. The Rule Stop fits onto virtually any standard steel rule between 22mm(7/8") and 30mm(1.1/16") wide. Once fitted to your rule, precision machining ensures the body is always square to your rule's edge. Effectively, it allows you to use a rule in a similar way as you would use a combination square. You can scribe lines parallel to the edge of timber, or use it as a depth stop, a transfer gauge, a small square and a useful tool for setting sharpening jigs. The Rule Stop is real gem, invaluable for accurate marking out. It is easy to align the edge of the Rule Stop with engraved scale graduations. The brass locking screw won't damage your rule's edge. The knurled knob is 15mm diameter making it easy to tighten without it getting in the way of the stop's functions.
Axminster Craft AC355WL Woodturning Lathe
Axminster Craft
£499.96
The AC355WL is a new design, perfect for those woodturners looking to move up from a smaller lathe, or as a first lathe for the more ambitious newcomer. Receive a free 3-hour woodturning session or a discount on a skill centre woodturning course, see banner below for more details. Like almost all top quality lathes, this one is made from grey cast iron. The extra stability and vibration absorbing properties will be much appreciated during use. Featuring a top quality DC brush motor, with variable speed, 3 belt ratios and reverse, it has a speed range to suit every project within its size capacities. A spindle speed readout helps select the appropriate speed for the job. The tailstock is angle towards the end of the bed, maximising the distance between centres, but is also extremely stiff. Cam locks secure both the tailstock and toolrest holder, and both are easy to move along the bed. The headstock is very smooth in design, with a projected nose for the back of the bowl turning, large bearings to support the spindle, and a flip-up cover allowing access to the gate's multi-V belt for speed ratio changing. There is a system to provide a 24-stop indexing facility, with a spring-loaded indent pin to hold the spindle into position. The spindle thread is M33 x 3.5, allowing many accessories to be fitted, or use its 2MT internal taper to hold centres etc. With a capacity of 510mm between centres (depending on the centres fitted) and with a swing capacity of 355mm, many ambitious projects can be undertaken. Mounted on rubber feet and supplied with Axminster drive and tailstock centres, plus a 100mm faceplate.

Axminster Rider Sharpening Station Kit
Axminster Rider
£87.96
The ultimate sharpening station from Rider has everything you need to get your planes, chisels and scrapers sharpened honed and ready to use. Consisting of a double sided diamond stone (1000 grit and 400 grit), leather strop and honing compound, board and all the instructions you need for the ultimate edge. Measuring 250mm (10") x 315mm (12") the Rider Sharpening Board is CNC machined from 13mm (1/2") thick synthetic resin laminate. This is the same material used to produce our kitchen worktop jigs. It is unaffected by oil or water and easy to keep clean. Four rubber feet give stability whilst sharpening and ensure the board will not creep across the bench in use. The stone recess is 228mm (11") x 89mm (3.1/2"), This matches the Axminster Rider Double Sided Diamond Bench Stone, which is included. It is a simple matter to hold shorter stones in place using a homemade wedge or spacer to fill any gap. A stone needs to be just snug enough to prevent movement back and forth as you sharpen. The strop is 203mm (8") x 65mm (2.1/2") quality split grain leather. The strop removes any remaining minute wire edge and puts a final high polish finish on your edge tools. It is a matter of personal preference whether you use it with or without a polishing compound. Designed to work in conjunction with an Axminster Rider Honing Guide it is as effective with similar Eclipse type guides. The edges of the board feature recesses which act as set-up guides for bevel angles of 25°, 30° and 45° for plane irons plus 25° and 30° bevel angles for chisels. This forms a very effect sharpening station with guaranteed repeatability for sharpening or honing angles. Supplied with: Board, Diamond stone, Strop, Paste and instructions
