Toolfix Promotional - Numatic TEM390A Hoover 1

This is the only commercial vacuum with a steel head and on-tool extraction on the market

Running alongside the reliability of the motor is; the patented AirFlo technology, HepaFlo filter bags and the TriTex filter giving this commercial vacuum its M-class rated status. Having the M-class rating on this machine allows it to be used in the workshop and out on site complying with the strict HSE requirements. To learn more about the importance of M-Class filtration, then read our blog How to meet the legal requirements for dust extraction.


Toolfix Promotional - Numatic TEM390A Hoover 2

Power and performance wherever and whenever you need it.

The TEM390A is specially designed to go over rough terrain and to be pulled up stairs and curbs. The folding pull handle keeps this machine compact when transported and stored but versatile enough to easily manoeuvre it across site. The cleaning reach of a commercial vacuum is also important to consider as power points may be far and few between. This is why the TEM390A comes with a 10m cable and a 2.9m hose as standard, but an optional extra of a longer hose by the metre going all the way up to 15m.

This months offer on the TEM390A is not to be missed. Buy the machine before the 31st July and get a free tool caddy which fits on top of the M-Class filtration vacuum – download our promotional flyer to find out more.

Discover Dust-Free Sanding with Mirka Abranet

Mirka Abranet: Dust-Free Sanding

Discover the simple but clever ‘net sanding’ solution to a safer dust-free working environment that also saves you time & money; Mirka Abranet®

Wood dust is a major health concern in many woodworking sectors. Inhaling dust from processes such as cutting and sanding can cause serious health problems. In fact carpenters and joiners are four times more likely to have respiratory conditions such as asthma.

It is an important requirement to put in place measures to limit the amount of dust in the workplace – the Workplace Exposure Limit (WEL) is 5mg per m3

Sanding in particular produces a lot of dust, some of which can contain potentially hazardous and even carcinogenic (hardwood) particles. Research shows that whilst sanding hardwood is more dangerous than sanding softwood, both are respiratory sensitisers and it is important to reduce exposures to levels as far as is reasonably practicable.

Mirka Abrasives offer a simple but clever solution to the dust problem…


Mirka Abranet®

Abranet is a multifunctional completely even sanding net with thousands of holes which enable phenomenal dust extraction. The maximum distance from each sanding particle to the closest dust extraction hole is just 0.5 mm! And because the dust is being continuously sucked away, sanding is virtually dust free. Tests have shown that the dust release from Abranet is only minuscule when compared to the dust released from traditional abrasives with dust extraction.

good dust extraction improves health and enables perfect final results.

Abranet’s clever construction provides many advantages;

► Longer Lifespan

When the abrasive and the sanding surface are constantly kept dust free, the lifespan of the abrasive is extended. Meaning Abranet can last up to 10 times longer than traditional abrasives – saving you money.

► Increased Efficiency

Since the abrasive maintains its aggressive properties over the entire surface, sanding becomes more even and efficient.

► Better Final Results

Since it is always possible to see what is being sanded, there will be a completely different control over the work, meaning that over-sanding, for example, can be avoided.

Plus, Abranet solves many old dull problems, such as the formation of so-called “dust pills” and clogging. Since dust can no longer collect in lumps on the sanding discs/strips to the same extent, there is no longer a danger that sanded dust will build up and create grooves on the sanding surface, or fill up the disc/strip and so reduce its sanding capacity.

If you have any further questions about how you could benefit from switching to Abranet, or to learn about other sanding options from Mirka, please contact one of our experienced sales advisers on 01733 347348.

Professional TCT Trend Router Bits

Trend Router Bits

The most commonly supplied variation of router cutters are Tungsten Carbide Tipped (TCT for short). Most cutters have tungsten carbide tips brazed onto a steel body for maximum working performance and cost-effectiveness. Tungsten carbide is a combination of equal parts tungsten and carbon to form an extremely hard material that is very abrasion resistant and can withstand higher temperatures than High Speed Steel (HSS).

The professional range of Trend router bits are specially developed using micro-granular D-NAMIC Tungsten Carbide Tips from the world’s leading carbide manufacturer, which are designed to withstand the most abrasive materials. The highly ground tip face ensures perfect sharpness & gives a cleaner cut on softwoods, hardwoods, MDF, plywood & chipboard. Advanced automated grinding improves the carbides resistance to wear and gives longer life when cutting abrasive materials.

Trend Straight Two Fluted Router BitsStraight cutters are generally used for trimming and cutting straight edges, and cutting straight rebates, slots and grooves. For these operations the router is guided by the side fence or against a batten edge. Using a template or guide bush, they can also be used for similar operations on regular or irregular curved work. They are also valuable for producing a range of joints.Both 6.3mm and 12.7mm diameter straight cutters are suitable for grooving and rebating. A 1/4 inch (6.35mm) cutter can be plunged in centrally away from the board edge. A 1/2 inch (12.7mm) cutter must enter from the edge of the board.

Always resist the temptation to rout grooves and joints in one pass of the router, so take several shallow cuts. This will ensure a better finish is obtained and it will reduce the load on the router. Mounting a waste piece at the end of the components clamped ready for machining will ensure the end panel does not split out (the cut is carried through into the waste piece).

Trend Router Bits | TrimmingBearing guided trimming cutters allow veneers and laminates to be trimmed flush with the edge of the base material, leaving a perfect chip free square edge. They can also be used to trim a thin workpiece flush to the edge contour of a pre-cut template.

When using plastic laminate always allow laminate adhesive to dry before trimming to avoid clogging the guide bearing.

To retain cutter life always restrict overlap of material to a maximum of 3mm.

Trend Router Bits | RebateSelf guided rebate cutters can be used on straight as well as curved work. Although the width of the rebate is set by the guide bearing diameter, different diameter bearings can be fitted to vary the rebate size.

Trend Router Bits | ChamferChamfers can be run the full length of the workpiece or ´stopped´ a short distance from the end. For the latter, a stop can be fitted to limit the router travel.

Chamfers can be used as a decorative edge on timber worktops, furniture legs and rails. They can also be used for removing the arris on posts and rail structures, such as fences, gates and garden furniture. When joining boards edge to edge, abutting edges can be chamfered to produce a vee-groove to disguise the glue joint.

Trend Router Bits | V-GrooveThe main uses of the v-cutter are for decorative grooves, fluting, imitation matchlining on panel materials, and free-hand or template letter carving. Light edge chamfering can also be carried out using this cutter on both timber and laminates.

Trend Router Bits | Ovolo & Rounding OverThese are generally used to soften the appearance of square edged worktops, window boards and furniture. By lowering the cutter, a top step can be routed. By performing a second pass on the reverse of the workpiece, a full bull-nose can be achieved.

Trend Router Bits | Decorative OgeeThis is one of the most popular of the traditional decorative moulding cutters. The ogee cutter is suitable for finishing the edges of tables and cabinet tops as well as mirror and picture frames.

Trend Router Bits | Radius, Cove and CavettoGenerally used as decorative cutters, cove cutters can be used to rout a decorative edge finish, for fluting, or produce pipe and cable ducts. When producing small section cove beading, it is recommended to cut the moulding on both edges of a wide piece of timber prior to separating them by sawing along the centre. This allows the workpiece to be held safely.

Trend Router Bits | DovetailAlthough used for cutting housings for shelf ends, unlike straight cutters, the dovetail profile must be cut in one pass only. Always cut the housing before the dovetail tongue and adjust the tongue width to suit. For ease and safety, it is worth considering using the router mounted in an inverted router table for cutting the tongues.

If a router below 750 watts is to be used, the load can be reduced by routing a relief cut with a straight cutter first in the centre of the area to receive the dovetail cut. This reduces the amount of material to be removed, reducing load on the router. The batten is adjusted to make a wider dovetail groove. Clamp support sections either side to prevent the router from tipping.
