It’s amazing how quickly the North of England Woodworking & Power Tool Show comes around each year and now it’s only three weeks away.

Commonly known as the ‘Harrogate Show’, the show is now under new ownership. Publishing company My Time Media acquired it almost a year ago. However, visitors are unlikely to notice much of a difference, as the show’s organiser Tony Cox is still very much in the frame.

New machinery ranges

At the show Axminster will be showcasing the new Trade machinery. Furthermore, the Harrogate Show will be the launch pad for many of the machines in the new Craft range. The Craft range comprises quality machines designed to meet the demands of serious hobbyists and deliver an exceptional, dependable performance. Read this article for more information about the Craft range .

New demonstrators

In addition to the Axminster machinery ranges, you will be able to see many other exclusive brands on the stand. These include Axminster Rider, UJK Technology, Arbortech, Leigh, Tormek and Veritas. Among our guest demonstrators will be inventor and woodworker Peter Parfitt and a representative from Help for Heroes who will be woodturning. This year we will be welcoming Roger Benton, well known in the USA for demonstrating Lie-Nielsen tools. Plus, Axminster’s Product Development Director Ian Styles will be putting the new Ultimate Edge sharpening system through its paces.

Also, this year we are pleased to announce that Phil Irons will be demonstrating the New Zealand brand Woodcut Tools on stand 189. Woodcut is famous for the Bowlsaver MAX3 and Bowl Coring System, tools which allow the user to produce several bowls from a single blank of wood.

So, join us on our stands 45, 140 and 157, to meet our team and enjoy the demonstrations we will be putting on.
