        NEW YEAR, NEW PRODUCTS
Hello to everyone and best wishes for 2010 from all the Carba-Tec® staff throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Many of the people employed at Carba-Tec® are accomplished craftspeople in their own right, so they under-
stand what you go through when trying to bring a woodworking project together. It never ceases to amaze us
what an incredibly high standard of woodwork is being produced in this country by both professionals and en-
thusiasts alike. Sometimes we get a front row seat to the ups and downs of the process as we see people com-
ing in with problems to be solved and sometimes photos of finished projects. It is often inspiring to hear how
you, our customers began woodworking and what drives you.

Throughout the year in our Focus publication we would like to tell some of your stories. In this edition we fea-
ture a South Australian guitarmaker and a Brisbane veterinary surgeon, both producing exceptional quality
woodwork.

Below is a drawing of our new head office in Brisbane. This is the realisation of a long-term dream. Construc-
tion is well underway and should be completed in a couple of months. We will let you know all the details in the
next Focus and also keep you up to date on our website.

Our new catalogue is almost ready, and those of you that nearly know our old one off by heart will have dozens
of new products to browse through. In some cases we have extended our existing range, such as introducing
some more exquisite Japanese saws and kitchen knives. If you are a boxmaker, we have some beautiful new
brass fittings to enhance your project.

There are some wonderful new Veritas products as well. Anyone who has ever used one of their handplanes
needs no convincing that they are a huge asset to any tool cabinet. Look out for the beautiful little Veritas
scraping plane (05P29-50) with a handle that can be adjusted to fit your grip or allow clearance when working
in a tight spot. In addition, the Veritas large spokeshave (05P33-90) is a magnificent piece of design and a real
workhorse.

We are also fortunate to have access to the Incra range, including the original Incra Jig®. Incra fences and jigs
are renowned for their precision. They are a great support system for your sawbench or router table where ac-
curate repeatable settings or incremental positioning are needed. We also stock the Incra range of measuring
and marking tools.

For the woodturners we have expanded our range of pen kits and we will have a huge new range of acrylic
blanks with some outrageous colours.

A fabulous innovation that we are now able to offer is the spiral cutterheads that are available on our CTJ-
381X, 15” thicknesser, CTJ-350X, 8” long bed jointer and our CTJ-508X, 20” thicknesser. They offer quieter cut-
ting, less chatter and decreased tearout on difficult grain. These are a triumph and the feedback we are getting
from users is terrific. These are factory fitted, so you will get full warranty too.

I have only mentioned a few items to whet your appetite. The list of new products is vast and we are having a
lot of fun playing with all the toys on the new product shelves. Come in and see for yourselves or visit our web-
site. There are new product updates constantly.

Have a great year and enjoy your woodworking.

Regards,
The Carba-Tec® Team

 John Price is a Carba-Tec® customer who combines tradition and innovation to handcraft classical
 guitars in his workshop in Hahndorf, South Australia. John’s guitars are played on stages all over the
 world by such virtuosos as the world famous Argentinian composer/performer Jorge Morel and well
 known Jazz artist George Benson.

 His story is an inspiration to anyone who has ever dreamed of making a living from their craft.

                                                                    By John Price
S a d d l e U p P a r t n e r , It’s Time to Round up that Dust!
                    As a self confessed killer of more then one vacuum cleaner over the years, it is with a heavy
                      heart that I need to announce to all brand name manufacturers of said machinery, my issues
                       have been solved, by the ‘Dust Deputy’.

                         My problem has been the poor design of standard vacuum systems, and its reliance on a
                         filter membrane to separate dust particles, from electrical componentry. It’s great when
                         you want to pick up in-ground dirt in your carpet, but not so good for large wood shavings
                          and in particular, fine dust particles. Once the filter bag is full, it needs to be emptied (by
                           someone… usually not me!). But how do you know when it’s time, or how can you tell
                           when the bag is so full, that it’s starving the motor of air and creating the perfect envi-
                            ronment for a motor failure? Truth is, you don’t know until it’s too late.

                                   In my previous articles, I have explained the advantages
                                    of dust extractors over vacuum cleaners. I also detailed
                                    the design principle behind Cyclonic Dust Extractors, and
                                    its advantage over conventional single stage dust
                                    extractors.                                                             THE C

                                                                                                           EFFEC CLON IC
                    Like many other sawdust makers, I have a need for a shop vac style

                    machine in my workshop. Many of my tools have a smaller connection,
                                                                                                                N
                    and work much more efficiently with this low volume, high velocity con-
                    nection. I am happy to say that I have found a solution to my problem.

                 The Oneida ‘Dust Deputy’ is a simple yet effective way of separating the
                 dust from the vacuum and allowing full performance from the vacuum
                 100% of the time. Oneida have developed a portable Cyclonic filter unit
 using the same method to separate dust and air as the full scale industrial units, but it is
 powered by your standard vacuum cleaner or shop vac.

 The ‘Dust Deputy’ is a perfect addition to a shop vac, and improves the performance of the vac by reducing the
 amount of dust that enters the filter bag by around 98%. This means that the vac runs at close to 100% efficiency
 100% of the time, instead of the rapid reduction in performance as the fine dust starts filling the filter bag.

 Your dust is collected in a large 19 litre bucket (two are supplied in the kit), and the whole unit is connected in
 line between your hose and your vac, using the supplied hose and fittings. The unit is made in the USA, and con-
 tains everything you need to ‘round up that dust’.

 Carba-Tec® has been appointed the exclusive distributor of the special Australian ‘Dust Deputy’. Oneida have
 helped develop this version so that it contains all the specific fittings required to make a connection to most vac-
 uums and shop vac style machines sold here in Australia. By Tony Forbes

 One consideration when it comes to designing a workshop,
 re-organising an existing workshop or getting by with what you
 have been dished out, is power.

 Power points need to be located in a convenient and safe
 location to avoid the web of tripping hazards caused by the
 good old extension cord. Another workshop nasty would be the
 $5 - 4 - way power board (which may possibly be plugged into
 another $10 - 6 - way power board). Overloading and piggy backing
 have long been outlawed in the workplace. Unless you have purpose built a
 workshop, it is unlikely that you have more than one or two power points, and these are usually not where you actually
 need them.

 New to Carba-Tec® is a range of top quality Australian made KTE power products. One being the fantastic Power
 Xtender. This DIY power point extender is far more than your ordinary extension lead as it provides 4 sealed and switched
 pre-mounted 10 amp power points that can be easily fixed to a wall or workbench. The power points are spaced 3 metres
 apart to give you ample coverage in most workshops. The Power Xtender also has a built in RCD (Residual Current
 Device), overload protection, and illuminated switches. With a RRP price of $149.00, its probably cheaper than having
 the local electrician call in to quote on some more permanent work.

 Also new from KTE is the in-line 1.8 meter long 10 Amp RCD and a purpose built 15 Amp armour plated
 machinery power lead, built specifically to run larger machines and take a beating in the workshop.

Customer Profile: Peter Geddes
A woodworking student in later life, Brisbane semi-retired veterinary surgeon, Peter Ged-
des, is an old dog who has learnt a lot of new tricks. He shows us that with enough con-
viction and the right guidance, you can re-invent yourself.

                                       I remember Peter from several years ago when I
                                       used to visit my friend Roy Schack in his first work-
                                       shop in Woolloongabba. He took lessons there on
                                       Sunday mornings with Roy, a graduate of Sturt
                                       School for Wood under Tom Harrington.

                                       One thing that struck me then and I’m

Setting up your workshop
Workshops tend to evolve over time and you don't always get the chance to plan as much as you may
                                                                                                         with Carol Russell.


want to. However having a vision of where you are heading and what you want to make can help a lot.
Over the next few Focus publications we will discuss some of the key factors to take into consideration
when setting up a workshop for the first time, including safety, layout, choosing machinery, sharpening,
handtools, workbenches and accessories.

STARTING OFF
Take a good look at the space allocated for your workshop. Whether you have a garage, under your house
or a purpose-built shed, the tools you buy will be heavily influenced by the size and shape of the space
you have to work in.

The smaller the space, the more imperative good layout is, no available space should be wasted. It is very
useful to be able to change the layout to accommodate larger projects. If you are going to purchase floor
standing machinery, I suggest you mount them on mobile bases so they can be easily rolled to one side
when not in use.

Some machines are just too big to move around and the orientation of your larger fixed machines and
workbench can make all the difference to the flow of your workshop. Even if you are lucky enough to have
a large workspace, a well-planned layout is still essential, you can walk a lot of extra miles in a large space
and easily fill it up with needless things, creating confusion and disorganisation.

Drawing a plan on paper is important, or even making a model can help you see how things work in re-
lation to each other. I find it helpful to lay newspaper on the floor folded to the dimension of your ma-
chinery footprints and place it where you plan to have them, walk around a bit see how it feels. The
Carba-Tec® catalogue contains the footprint dimensions of our floor-standing machinery, so this can be
done before you buy anything.

Most of the larger items in your workshop have a relationship to each other. To keep the flow of your work-
shop running smoothly, position your machines so once a particular process is finished, the machine for
the next stage is close at hand and facing in a direction that doesn’t involve a lot of turning around of
material. You will be grateful for this when machining long boards.

The jointer and thicknesser are logically companion machines and will most likely share a dust extractor.
Because they produce a lot of shavings, you will want to position them so the extraction hose is as short
as possible to ensure maximum efficiency of your dust extractor. It works well if the saw is in line with

                                                                      Visit www.carbatec.com.au
the thicknesser so after dressing your material you are easily able
to size it.

Put special thought into positioning your sawbench. It needs as
                                                                                          to see the full article.
much space around it as possible, especially if you have a sliding
table. You want to be able to move freely and safely around the whole saw, so allow extra space for easy
and safe handling of large boards and panels.

Safety is everything! Caring for yourself and those around you is always paramount. I don’t want to sound
like a manual but these basic principles should never be overlooked. Clear your work areas, keep machinery
in good condition and blades well guarded. Use effective hold-down systems, push sticks and eye and hear-
ing protection. Don’t work when tired or whilst taking drugs or alcohol and install the most effective dust ex-
traction system you can afford. (See our website for previous Focus articles by Tony Forbes.)

I can’t stress enough that when an operation feels dangerous, don’t do it! Is there another way to achieve
what you want more safely? It’s easy to put yourself under pressure to finish a project and trying to take short-
cuts is tempting. You can pay a high price for those minutes gained. I have always considered myself a very
careful woodworker but I can still call to mind several incidents of absolute stupidity on my part that should
have been avoided.

I would also like to point out the importance of child-proofing. Even if you aren’t a parent, small visitors have
no end to their curiosity and ability to work out on/off buttons. Keeping machines unplugged when not in use
is essential.

Make sure sharp hand tools are out of reach, or even better behind tool cabinet doors. Make sure machinery
blades are covered or dropped below the table, a bandsaw or circular saw blade can be turned by hand and
cause injury. Danger never goes away no matter how experienced you are. Sometimes experience and con-
fidence can even reduce your vigilance....see www.carbatec.com.au for full article.
