3 Things to Consider Before Buying Woodwork Machinery

August 26, 2020 2 min read

At Calderbrook, we have been supplying woodworking machinery for nearly 3 decades, helping people to create their woodwork workshops whether they are professionals or just enjoy fulfilling their hobby. If you’re on the lookout for some new woodwork machinery, it’s important to think carefully about what you’re buying to make sure it’s good quality and just what you need for your upcoming project.

With that in mind, here are the top 3 things to consider before buying any machinery.


There are so many different brands of woodworking machinery that it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. Be sure to do your research into the different machinery brands to make sure you’re choosing the right piece of equipment.

At Calderbrook, we stock top of the line machinery from reputable brands like Wadkin, Robinson, Panhans and Boere. These woodworking machinery brands can deliver everything from light duty to heavy duty equipment, so you can rest assured you’ll find whatever you need.

We are an independent supplier, meaning we can offer these quality brands at a budget that suits you.

New vs used machinery

There are benefits to both new and used machinery, so take some time to decide between the two. New machinery is often created with the latest technology, and are likely to be very reliable. New machinery will also be in perfect condition with all the necessary accessories.

On the other hand, previously owned machinery can throw up some great bargains, especially if you find a model that has a reputation for being efficient and reliable. As long as it has undergone a physical inspection and you are able to source the instruction manual or any other specifications, there is no reason to shun used machinery.

Used machinery can be particularly helpful if you have a tight budget to work to.

Do you need help to use it?

It’s so important to know how to operate and clean your machinery, in order to stay safe and reduce your risk of accident or injury. Before you purchase your machinery, think about how much research and training you might need, and begin to put this into practice.
