Is this a new tool or just a replacement. Can't imagine having the CNC and have to do edge banding with an iron.

You boys always make me laugh. :laughing: Thanks for that

We have been taking our edgebanding to a shop in the hood.

That is going to end real soon. Signed the order today.:thumbsup:

Pretty jazzed about it.

Stop your laughing, I'm serious. That is what I use to edge band. At first it was my wifes iron, then somehow it ruined some of her clothes and it became mine :whistling:

That and a j roller and a double edge hand trimmer. Only thing I need to edge band is shelving. I do a few frameless cabinets on occasion, but that is unusual.

Keep laughing.

I have a hot air hand held bander and an iron also. so I guess it is a replacement for two tools.

We should be signing on to a very large job with a ton of slab doors next week and I just am tiered of hauling parts to another shop to get them banded.

We do some frameless work from time to time but cut parts for a few people and they will love that we have a bander. One guy can just about keep up with both machines, we hope anyway. So we can get more for our time while we cut parts.

Gus, the Brandt banders are pretty decent entry level banders. Are you dealing with Stiles for the purchase?

How heavy are you into 3mm banding? The reason I ask is that although sold as such these machines lack hogging motors which really stresses out the profile trimmers.If you are primarily only doing 1mm or HPL you don't need to worry about it.

After santa is done at your shop you can send him my way.....as long as he is in the gift giving mood.

We love this machine. All our banding has been getting done on a Brandt. Thats all they make is banders and that says something to me. It has all the right stuff, in a nutshell.

We don't mess with 3 mill tape.

The local rep is a Stiles distributor, yes Stiles

I am more jazzed about this than I was for the cnc.:thumbsup:
