We’re always looking to help you out by adding value wherever we can at Austim. Our expertise and equipment allow us to carry out a wide variety of handy services on-site, saving you time and money.
Timber machining capability
We have a full-time qualified timber machinist on staff with a range of handy equipment. Ask our sales team about what you need for your unique requirements!
Our equipment includes:
- Multi-head through feed moulder
- Four sider (capable of machining 330x65mm)
- Robinson bandsaw
- Spindle moulder
- Rip saw
- Various docking saws.
If you intend to use your timber externally, we recommend you apply some form of protection to improve stability and longevity. For instance, the underside of timber decking is rarely coated because it’s a messy and time-consuming task to carry out on-site.
At Austim, we have a surprisingly cost-effective solution.
Our two coating machines are capable of applying oil to all four faces of timber boards, be it timber cladding, timber decking or screening. Typically, we would recommend either a single coat of Cutek CD-50 clear in our factory to coat the timber all around, followed by one or two clear or tinted coats on-site. If you desire a water-based product, we would recommend a pre-coat in Intergrain Pre-Coat, which can be followed with two top coats of Intergrain Ultradeck or Intergrain Nature’s Timber Oil.
Austim does more than just carry and source the most exceptional timber supplies Perth-wide (from Merbau timber to timber decking), we also provide the most complete timber service around. Just ask Austim!
