45 degree/ fingerpull edgebander2/3/20
I am a small cabinet making business of 6 people and looking to purchase a 45 degree edgebander or sharknose finger pull edger to cut cost in manual labour.
I have recently purchased a new SCM digital panel saw thinking it was one of the leading brands/quality only to find i am calling them twice a week. It is so dispointing.
I am now in the market for a new edger (current edger Biesse Akron 245) that can accomodate for 45 degree or fingerpull edges in a fully automatic. I have only researched Holzher and Aaron edgers at the moment and as you can guess their is a major cost involved. At the end of the day i felt when i spent good money on a panel saw and got given crap i now question myself.
Can anybody guide me in the right direction or have any sites that have reviews on this specific type of edger or even reviews on standard edger?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
If this is for doors and drawer fronts, why not outsource them to someone like Northern Contours?
Just my $.02.
If you don't do a ton of angled banding, you could grab a Festool Conturo and the adapter that mounts it upside down in a bench. It has an angle adjuster similar to their track saws, and does a good job of applying the banding. You do have to end trim and flush trim manually afterward, but it still beats spray adhesive or iron-on banding by a long shot.
