All of our products are regularly put through rigorous quality testing by ourselves as well as selected tradesmen to ensure we maintain the high standard of quality of which we are proud.
A machine is only as good as its operator and a bad workman blames his tools. Make sure you aren’t making mistakes when using your equipment so that you can achieve the best quality cut!
When it comes to cutting your best bet is usually with a circular saw. They are phenomenal machines which allow you to reduce the time it takes to cut whilst offering incredible accuracy. However a machine is only as good as the person using it so if it used incorrectly it isn’t going to give great performance, you wouldn’t take a Lambourghini around Silverstone with the hand brake on and expect a good lap time now would you?
We thought we would outline the three most common mistakes people make when using a circular saw, avoid these three things and you will be well on your way to achieving a good quality cut.
For a long time people have been using diamond discs in their angle grinders. The tough and abrasive diamond grit makes cutting through tough materials such as stone, paving slabs, concrete or brick a far easier task.
There are so many different types of circular saws on the market at the moment, selecting the right blade for the machine you are using can be difficult.
The Walker Tools brand is reserved exclusively for products manufactured to a standard approved by professional tradesmen. With almost 100 years’ experience in the tool industry we are able to offer a comprehensive range of tools and accessories of a high quality to fit your specific needs.
