Tools

The Shed - - My Business Shed -

Apart from a com­put­er­ized CNC router, mostly used for cut­ting out wa­ter troughs, most of the tools used are hand tools. Cameron has gone with the Ry­obi line with in­ter­change­able bat­ter­ies. He has 12 nail guns, which fire 15– 50mm nails; var­i­ous san­ders; a wood planer; a hand router; drills and hot-glue guns; and a string of 18V bat­ter­ies to power them.

“We’ve been through four drop saws — they get a lot of use. We are us­ing a De­walt saw at present, which is han­dling the pace,” he ex­plains.

They go through a lot of screws, buy­ing 7mm screws in 24,000 lots! They buy Sel­leys wood glue in four-litre lots.

Be­low: To add au­then­tic­ity to the wool­shed mod­els Cameron got lo­cal en­gi­neer­ing com­pany Carac Cou­plings to make up a bulk lot of lit­tle shear­ing hand­pieces
