Extreme Life CNC Router Bit Set
Amana’s Spektra solid carbide router bits feature a micro-thin, nano-composite ceramic coating that enables the tool’s cutting edge to retain crucial sharpness and lubricity, providing up to a 2.5 times longer service life. The coating prevents high heat build-up and oxidation, which is detrimental to cutting performance. The Amana Spektra 8-Pc Router Bit Collection includes v-groove, round over, ball nose and spiral plunge bits with 1/4″ shanks designed specifically for a wide variety of applications in wood, plastic and composite materials. The kit comes with a solid wood showcase storage box with a Plexiglas clear lid.
One Hand Power Clamping
Bessey EHK Trigger Clamps are not your average one-handed clamps. They have been engineered from the start to offer a clean design, comfortable handles, up to 600 pounds of potential clamping force, and the ability to quickly transform from clamping to spreading without using tools. All that is required is a quick push of the locking mechanism to disengage the fixed jaw, move it to the opposite end of the rail and re-engage.
Combo 16″ Helical Jointer/Planer
The Scorpion CWI-JP1604HC is built for size-challenged shop spaces and convenience of operation. Its powerful 4 HP motor drives a 2-7/8″ diameter Stinger Carbide helical cutter head that can remove up to 1/8″ at each pass. The 80 knife cutterhead (five rows of 16 knives) produces a super smooth surface and virtually zero tear-out even on the most difficult to thickness woods. A 16″ × 65-1/2″ heavily ribbed cast iron jointer table provides excellent support with longer boards. Other features include an electronic digital height readout for the thickness planer table, Euro-style guard and mobility kit.
Self Feed Drill Bits
The two-cutter Diablo Self Feed Bits are designed to strict tolerances that result in energy-efficient drilling with up to two times life per battery charge. The two-cutter design and an aggressive low thread count feed screw deliver up to two times more holes per charge. The replaceable feed screw features a pull-out stop mechanism that prevents the screw from slipping out when the bit is removed from the material. Equipped with 7/16″ hex shanks, and the bits are available in diameters from 1-1/8″ to 3-5/8″.
Convenient Quarter Sheets of Plywood
What’s the hardest thing about working with naturally beautiful hardwood plywood? For many people, it’s the handling part. It can be quite a challenge to wrestle a 4’× 8′ sheet home, especially without a big truck! Introducing convenient, ship-to-home PureBond Project Panels, in a wide range of species choices, available through The Home Depot Canada website. (Just search for “Columbia Forest 2 ft” at HomeDepot.ca and you’ll see these great choices!) Panels include maple (in raw and pre-finished forms), red oak, white oak, aromatic cedar, walnut, poplar, birch, mahogany, alder, hickory, and innovative new Rough-Sawn faces in red oak and birch. Maple and walnut are also available with an exposed-edge “EuroPly” core. These 2’× 4′ Project Panels are available in 1/4″, 1/2″ and 3/4″ thicknesses. PureBond Project Panels are made with a soy-based technology instead of added urea formaldehyde. Better for you in the workshop; and in your home!
Black ICE CNC Router Bits
Designed for CNC machines utilizing “nested base” manufacturing or “pod and rail” for high-speed applications in laminated materials, Freud Black I.C.E (Industrial Cooling Element) bits deliver double the cutting life and flawless finishes.
