Since the earliest days when the company was started by my great grandfather, our strength has come from an engineering background and an enviable reputation in the area of rebuilt and classical woodworking machinery. There have been many changes in demand over the years’ said Alex, ‘particularly since the advent of CNC, and Daltons Wadkin will continue to ‘Machine Smarter’ as construction methods, design and machining requirements continue to adapt and move forward. But there will always be a place for previously owned- equipment, and our company’s serviced or rebuilt machines represent the best that money can buy.’
