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.

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.
This Axminster bench grinder is a super value-for-money machine. It features the usual general purpose grey grinding wheel on the left hand side whilst on the right is a 40mm wide 80 grit aluminium oxide white wheel, perfect for touching up edge tools. This stone is wide enough to accommodate the majority of carving, turning and general woodworking tools and, being of aluminium oxide, is less likely to burn the edge of the tool. The grinder is equipped with adjustable tool rests, spark guards, NVR switch and eye shields. An excellent machine for any keen woodworker. Wheel diameter 150mm(6"), bore 12.7mm(1/2").
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.

The AT350WL utilises the very reliable inverter technology usually found on much larger machines. Electronic variable speed is a desirable feature for woodturners, enabling fine tuning of speed to suit delicate work, larger diameters or out of balance work pieces. A three step poly-V pulley system allows three speed ranges which coupled with the load sensing inverter ensure maximum torque and stable spindle speeds. The magnetic backed switch unit can be placed on any convenient position on the lathe bed or headstock to suit the work in hand. It incorporates on/off buttons, a speed control knob and a forward and reverse switch. An LED digital read-out of the spindle speed in RPM is a useful feature that helps control your work. A 400mm(16") between centres and a 350mm (14") swing over the bed capacity is generous on a lathe this compact. Spindle indexing is achieved in 15° segments by insertion of a magnetic dowel pin. Threaded holes (3/8"x16 UNC) are provided at each corner of the lathe for bench mounting. Tool post diameter 1" (25.4mm). This lathe has proved to be very popular for both teaching and craft demonstrations, not too big nor heavy but with enough capacity to show off your skills. Supplied with four prong Axminster drive centre, Axminster revolving tailstock centre, 75mm faceplate and a centres knock out bar. N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used. This machine was previously known as the AT1416VS.

This benchtop bandsaw is made to exacting standards to encompass all the features found on top quality floor standing machines. Designed in house, we set out to create a bandsaw with many unique features. The one piece frame is made from heavy gauge welded steel and is extremely rigid to withstand high blade tensions. A cast iron deep section table is fitted, featuring a ground table surface and a rack and pinion tilt mechanism with indexing stops for common angles. The heavy gauge alloy rip fence is mounted on a cast alloy bracket which also incorporates a fine width adjustment. The fence is clamped with a cam action lever, easily released to allow swift adjustment. Blade guides are all ball bearing with micro adjustment for accurate control. The top guide is mounted on a steel hexagon bar for stiffness and adjusted for height by a small rack and pinion system. A pair of cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two ratios. The 750W induction motor features an inverter drive to control the motor speed. This gives a speed across the range of 42-1001 m/min. By using the lower belt speed and reducing the motor speed, this machine can be used for cutting some types of metal, for example by using a fine pitch M42 blade this bandsaw will handle mild steel plate from 2 to 10mm thick. Thinner or harder materials cannot be cut in volume on this bandsaw. This model is a true all round machine, suitable for many projects using all kinds of materials.

Separate clamp heads, offer complete flexibility in the choice of both length and material for the bar. Use timber for lighter weight and ease of working or metal box section for the ultimate in rigidity. Our clamp heads are cast iron and steel and feature an ingenious elongated pinhole, which improves the clamping performance. Pressure to the jaw faces drives the clamp heads down against the bar with equal force, maintaining the jaws at 90° to the bar. The maximum bar width is 25 mm and the depth is unlimited (within reason!).
Woodworkers love wood, so we decided to fit our Rider bevel edge chisels with handles made from dense European Hornbeam, chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and a light oil finish, the Hornbeam has a superb feel in the hand. The wider chisels have slightly larger handles to maintain balance across the range of sizes. It is a subtle difference, but enough to make each chisel feel 'right' in the hand. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule with a shock absorbing leather washer between the handle and the chisel's bolster. The blades are fine-grained, chrome manganese steel, carefully hardened and tempered to 59 HRC. Sharpened and ground with a 25° bevel, the blades require only final honing to achieve a fine, long lasting edge (we suggest a 30° micro-bevel). In cross section, the blades are slimmer than a standard chisel with a narrower land on each side, to a little over 1mm. This allows much improved clearance when working into a corner such as cleaning dovetails. Supplied in a strong wooden case; this 6-piece set comprises the following sizes: 6mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm. The blades are approximately 100mm long with the overall length varying between 265mm to 280mm. European made.
