Top tool brands on display

Working with Wood will be introducing their latest international tools and equipment at the George show next month - plus adding many more exciting demonstrations over the 3-day event.


Working with Wood show takes place 22 to 25 September at the Nelson Mandela Metroplitan University, George Campus. The Working with Wood team have planned many new demonstrations over the 3 days of this year’s show, featuring some of the latest innovative technically advanced tools and equipment in the country today.

Kreg have introduced some innovative new products in the past few years. One particularly outstanding unit is the Mobile Project Centre. This portable workspace can be used for a wide variety of project tasks: it’s a sturdy sawhorse that’s great for supporting long boards as you cut, or flip the large tables into position and this product offers the features you’d expect to find in a high-end stationary workbench.

Festool - celebrating 90 years in business -  have introduced their new Cordless Airstream charging systems. A combination of the Airstream SCA 8 rapid charger and the Airstream BP 18 Li 5.2 AS battery pack reduces the cooling time of the battery and improves the entire charging process by up to 65 percent. This means that battery packs are ready to use again more quickly.

Also new from Festool is a complete system for their dust extractors. Plus, their latest state of the art Kapex KS 60 Sliding Compound Miter Saw. This unit takes mitre sawing to a whole new level.

Alpen Austria, now celebrating 60 years in business, recently launched their most technically advanced new drill bits - the Sprint Master and Pro series- offering a much shorter drilling time, three times longer service life, with narrow tolerances and high concentricity and lasting twice as long. See these new products in action at Working With Wood.

The George Show highlights include an exhibition of the latest equipment, systems, and specialist tools - with demonstrations on techniques such as airbrushing, cabinet making and specialised turning. The show stopper will again be the latest model circular saw from Saw Stop, with its built-in safety system triggers that automatically shut down the saw within 5 milliseconds should the blade make contact with the human skin.

Top South African and international demonstrators will be available to share their knowledge of their craft including woodturning, carving, sharpening, pyrography, and cabinetry amongst others. The Working with Wood Show showcases sustainable timber production and beautiful indigenous and exotic timbers through the labour of local and regional wood artisans.
