We regularly update our workshop equipment not only to provide a safe working environment for our staff, but also to ensure we have the best equipment to produce the highest quality products.
We are very excited to have recently taken delivery of our "new" Martin Jointer, Martin are the Rolls Royce of woodworking machines! We picked up this Martin jointer second hand - 4 years old but it had never been used or even unloaded off the original sea transport pallet.
It was sad to say goodbye to our old Sagar from the 1950’s which we purchased when the Garden Island Navy workshop closed down, but the Martin is safer, quieter and makes good coffee. The Sagar was built like a battleship, and weighed about as much as one too! On the subject of ships, one of the original founders of Sagar/Wadkin went down with the Titanic.
Our Sagar has now moved on to an honourable retirement. Farewell party soon!
