General International Power Feeders


Adding a General International Power Feeder to feed the stock for you, can make your shaper safer to operate, make you feel safer, and considerably improve the cuts it produces. The main function of a power feeder is to push the stock through at a consistent speed rate, and to hold the stock up tight against the fence and the bed of the tool – both of which make nice, deep and smooth profiles that a shaper is able of producing. A power feeder also prevents you to get your hands near the cutter. There are many advantages of having a General International power feeder: it keeps the wood in constant contact with the fence and table, it speeds up the production process, it gives you much more control over the material and provides safety.


General International Surface Planers


General International surface planers are another important tool that every wood craftsman would never find himself without. Having the proper wood planer is as essential as any other woodworking tool. Whether you are a talented wood craftsman or professional cabinet manufacturer, no one wants a jagged or rough edge to mar his handiwork. General International provides you with high-end wood planers to improve not only your productivity, but also the quality of your work.
