Doellken Edgebanding: A Portable Option for Woodworkers

Originally a manual process, edgebanding can now be done with a portable edgebander. If you're looking for a new or used edgebander, you can find a good selection on eBay.What are Doellken edgebanding services?

Portable edgebanders come with a container of glue or edging tape used to attach strips of PVC, ABS, wood, or paper. Supplies for other surfaces may be available. Some machines have a manual cutter that adjusts the tape to fit the edge of the wood or laminate while others have a pneumatic cutter. They may also have a thermostat that digitally controls the temperature of the glue, offering woodworkers an opportunity to create professional touches they were previously unable to do in the home workshop or on the job.What features should have an edgebander have?
If you want to do your own finish work on cabinets or furniture, you can find an edgebander for sale on eBay. Machines come in 110- or 220-volt options in a variety of new, refurbished and used conditions. Because features vary among different models, look for the one that best fits your needs. Consider factors like these:
- Width of the band and how fast it glues the strip
- How long it takes to heat the glue
- Shape of edges (straight, bevel, or irregular)
- Power of the motor
