All machines of the Unimat1 Elementary kit are child-friendly. Due to the short stroke of the jigsaw blade, the fingers of a young carpenter cannot be injured. At the same time, professionals are delighted by the accurate and precise cutting of the saw.
Included in the kit are the components for a jigsaw, for variations of wood turning machines, for a hand held sander, for a stationary sander and for a hand held drilling machine.
The powerful jigsaw can be used with plywood, solid wood, balsa wood, plastics and thin sheets of soft metal. It has a cutting capacity of up to 20mm balsa and 7mm solid wood. No annoying opening and clamping of the jigsaw blade when cutting windows and holes.
With a distance between centres of 135mm and a maximum centre height of 50mm, the efficient 12V power machine works smoothly. Students can make first steps in woodworking without any danger.
The machines can be applied in school versatilely. In addition we offer comprehensively documented projects like wooden pens, salt and pepper shakers or egg cups. Furthermore lesson plans with theory-exercises those impart knowledge about machines and techniques are available.
