CHARLOTTE -- Lockdowel and Handibot® Smart Power Tool portable CNC will show small woodshops how to drill insertion holes and route panels at Wood Pro Expo. Lockdowel manufactures snap-in fasteners for cabinets, closet and furniture. The Lockdowel EClips fastening system removes the need for glue, screws or tools for cabinet assembly. The Handibot Smart Power Tool Adventure Edition by Shopbot is the innovative, truly portable CNC, that runs from any WiFi-enabled device. It performs precise and easily repeatable cutting, carving, machining, and milling operations. It works with wood, MDF, plastics, foams, and aluminum. It sells for about $3,000 (www.handibot.com).
“The Handibot allows small, even one person shops, to build cabinets and furniture with snap-in Lockdowel fastening,” Lockdowel President Bryan Koelling says. “Now you can work almost anywhere because the Handibot has a working footprint of just 21 inches by 24 inches and weighs just 45 pounds!”
In addition, Lockdowel will perform live installation demonstrations of their Visionary Award Winning EClips Drawer Slides and their new Screw-less, Snap-in Hinges at Woodworking Network’s Wood Pro Expo. Lockdowel will be exhibiting in Booth 317 at the Charlotte Wood Prod Expo. Click HERE to see al exhibitors.
