Wadkin NQ Grinder

The importance of keeping knives and cutters properly ground, and thus ensuring efficient production from key machines such as planers and moulders, surfacing and thicknessing machines, justifies particular attention being given to the choice of equipment for this purpose.

Long experience with different types of grinding machines in our own Tool and Cutter Department has proved that wet grinding gives better results, and that for the long knives used in planing machine, the most accurate grinding is obtained by mounting the knife on a stationary carrier and traversing the grinding wheel backwards and forwards along the blade.

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down from the cutting edge to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
