Metalwork Machinery

Taylor’s Hardware can supply metal working machinery from top brands such as Metalmaster, Jet, Carba-Tec and Rok.

A metal lathe or metalworking lathe is designed for precisely machining of relatively hard materials (metal). They were originally designed to machine metals; however, with the advent of plastics and other materials, and with their inherent versatility, they are used in a wide range of applications, and a broad range of materials. Rigid machine tools remove material from a rotating workpiece via the (typically linear) movements of various cutting tools, such as tool bits and drill bits.

Milling machines are often classed in two basic forms, horizontal and vertical, which refers to the orientation of the main spindle. Both types range in size from small, bench-mounted devices to room-sized machines. Unlike a drill press, which holds the workpiece stationary as the drill moves axially to penetrate the material, milling machines also move the workpiece radially against the rotating milling cutter, which cuts on its sides as well as its tip.

A pedestal drill (also known as a drill press or bench drill) is a fixed style of drill that may be mounted on a stand or bolted to the floor or workbench. A drill press consists of a base, column (or pillar), table, spindle (or quill), and drill head, usually driven by an induction motor. The head has a set of handles (usually 3) radiating from a central hub that, when turned, move the spindle and chuck vertically, parallel to the axis of the column. The table can be adjusted vertically to suit the job at hand.

A band saw is a power tool which uses a blade consisting of a continuous band of metal with teeth along one edge to cut various work pieces. The band usually rides on two wheels rotating in the same plane.

A linisher / sander is a machine used to shape or remove waste from a given material (metal) via a rotating abrasive disc and or belt.

A cold saw is sawing machine that uses a circular saw blade to cut metal. The name "cold saw" comes from the cutting process they employ. These sawing machines transfer the heat generated by cutting to the chips created by the saw blade. Therefore, the blade and material being cut remain cold, unlike an abrasive saw, which abrades the metal and creates a great deal of heat in the metal and cutting blade. Cold saws use either a solid high speed steel (HSS) or tungsten carbide-tipped, resharpenable circular saw blade.
