used for securing work
a machine used to cut curves in material
Plastic dip coating
The metal is heated and is then dipped in a plastic powder eg: coat hooks.
like dip coating but it is a more sophisticated process used in industry. The powder is sprayed onto products which run through an oven.
A thin plating layer of metal on the surface provides a durable finish to metals which are prone to corrosion.
used for measuring up to 300mm in length
used for long measurements up to 5m
Used for marking out straight lines on wood.
used for marking out/checking right angles on PLASTICS & METALS
marking out/checking angles at 45o or 135o
used for measuring/marking parallel lines on wood
cut wood across the grains
used to scratch the surface of metals and plastics lightly
used to make an indent on metal surfaces
used for measuring & taking very accurate measurements
Used for cutting curved shapes in wood or plastic.
Used for cutting mortise and tenon joints and straight lines on wood.
used to cut small accurate work (such as dovetail joints)
used for fine work and rougly cutting out materials
used to smooth and finish wood
smooths & flattens wood to size
for finishing surface

used for drilling holes
used for large diameter holes
movable holding devices made to fit a part of your product
a hollow shape to be filled in
computer aided design
Computer aided manufacture
Computer numerically controlled
shape memory alloys
metal alloys that can remember their cold form shape
used to hold small pieces of metal whilst they are being drilled
