Casadei 15/10 Hot Air Edgebander
I bought this Casadei bander used in early 2004. It has
worked pretty well for me so far, except when I tried to run some
2mm thick wood banding through it. It was melting the glue
well enough, and the trimmers handled it fine, but do to the extra
thickness the banding was slipping slightly as the panels moved
through the machine. This left an annoying 3mm gap at the
front end of the panels. I guess I had better stick with 1mm
or less thick banding.
The hot air banders can do PVC, but there is a fine line between melting the glue and actually melting the banding. I try to use a melamine banding when I need a something to go with melamine that is not wood veneer, especially for colors like white, black or even maple.
