Category: Woodworking Combination Machines

As the name may suggest, a Woodworking Combination Machine (or Combined Universal Machine) is an all-in-one style woodworking appliance that encompasses a range of crucial woodworking functions. Without these machines, each function would require its own dedicated machine and with each of these machines taking up a fair amount of space, this can easily lead to a cramped and inefficient workshop. Thankfully, these compact, highly functional, utilitarian machines provide an array of functions whilst taking up a fraction of the space.
Woodworking combination machines are an essential piece of equipment for any professional woodworker. These machines allow you to perform a variety of tasks, such as sawing, planing, milling, draining and more, all in one convenient, ergonomic location.

There are many different brands and models of woodworking combination machines on the market, so it’s important to do your research before making a purchase. You’ll want to consider factors such as price, features, durability and brand reputation when making your decision. At RJ Woodworking Machinery, our woodworking combination machines are designed and manufactured by the SCM Group and offer their flawless quality and functionality.

A woodworking combination machine is a tool that combines the functions of two or more types of woodworking machinery into one unit. These machines are very versatile and can save a lot of space in your shop. One of the biggest advantages of a woodworking combination machine is the cost. Purchasing five separate machines for their individual functions would likely cost at least £20,000, but a woodworking combination machine with all of those functions may only cost £5,000.

There are a few different types of woodworking combination machines, the most popular being the 3-in-1 and the 4-in-1. The 3-in-1 machine combines a table saw, a drill press, and a jointer into one unit. The 4-in-1 machine adds a lathe to the mix. However, different machines offer different functions and it’s important to find a woodworking combination machine that fulfils your exact requirements.

Functions of Woodworking Combination Machines:

Surface Planing – enables you to accurately shape a workpiece into obtaining perfectly flat, straightened surfaces.

Thickness Planing – performs similar functions to a surface planer but with a focus on the depth and thickness of a workpiece.

Cutting – for fast and precise cutting of a workpiece. Usually with a precision, circular blade.

Milling & Trimming – enables you to create grooves, tenons, poles and shaped profiles.

Drilling & Slots – allows for the creation of slots and holes.

Being the perfect tool for small businesses with limited space, Woodworking Combination Machines are also excellently suited towards hobbyists and less intensive craftsmen as they deliver a workshop’s worth of functions in one compact table. Especially considering they have a relatively affordable and cost-effective price tag, Woodworking Combination Machines will prove a great long-term investment.
