Martin Woodworking Machines updated its exclusive line of Aigner accessories, which include outfeed tables, fence systems, guides, hand-held feeding devices, and safety guards.
The accessories are compatible with any brand of woodworking machine and many are standard equipment on new Martin machines.
“They can also make your existing machine a lot more accurate, so instead of buying a whole new machine you can look at dressing it up with some more modern accessories that would make your machine safer and more accurate,” company president Carl Stout says.
Martin Germany has always had Aigner products on its machines throughout the history of the company, Stout explains. When Martin USA opened in 1999, Aigner products became readily available in the U.S.
The Aigner catalog was updated in 2014 and there are a number of items customers might not be aware of, including an overhead saw guard.
“One of the most popular new items is the Contermax, a hand-held feeding device for doing various cuts on a router table or shaper. Most people, when they start out with that, usually buy more because they’re so impressed with the quality. The Contermax sells for $165,” Stout says.
