a rework of an image taken last Autumn. Not getting much joy with the camera at the moment. I have had a major computer issue causing the loss of some of my favourite work this year and feeling a little cheesed off as a result. Had a look at some of last years Autumn images to try and rekindle my enthusiasm for the weeks ahead.

What is a Louver Groover?
A louver-groover is a woodworking machine that cuts route stiles for fixed slat louver doors, and can also drill holes for movable shutters, with both left hand and right hand stiles. Louvering for doors and windows has been in practice for hundreds of years. But today’s louver groovers make the process significantly easier, particularly in the case of industrial grade lover groovers. Although louvering is a specific woodworking practice, the types of products that can contain louvering are extensive. Typically, one thinks of louvering in terms of interior wooden doors and blinds and exterior shutters. But there are also various types of furniture that have louvering applied, from hutches to small side tables. Unlike some woodworking machines, louver groovers are generally not adaptable to other woodworking applications, making them feasible for only woodworking operations that perform louvering. However, louver-groovers do come in different sizes and capacities, with the larger models generally being highest in capacity and fit for operations that have a commercial level production demand and occupy a warehouse style workspace.
Is it Sensible to Buy Louver Groovers Used?
Whether or not to buy a used louver-groover typically depends on two factors: how much the machine costs new and what level of usage the machine can withstand. Although louvers are regarded as commercial woodworking machinery, some models are constructed for use in woodshops and smaller woodworking operations, as reflected by their lower price. In such cases, saving a little money buy purchasing a louver used wouldn’t result in a great buy considering the lifespan of the machine. However, in the case of industrial capacity louvers, whose price can easily rise to tens of thousands of dollars, buying used is sensible. Industrial woodworking machines are designed to stand up to commercial level use for years on end without experiencing a noticeable decline in efficiency or dependability, making it possible to receive new machine quality at a used machine price.
How Do You Assess the Quality of Used Louver Groovers?
Assessing the quality of a used louver groover follows the same four-part process as assessing the quality of other used woodworking machines. Part one is to only buy a louver groover from a professional seller of used woodworking machinery (e.g. eBay merchants and auctioneers are generally not professional sellers). Part two is to research a seller’s reputation at the Better Business Bureau; if a seller has unresolved customer complaints on its record, look for a different seller. Part three is to obtain a copy of a machine’s official logged service record to make sure that it’s been properly maintained. Part four is to conduct a first person inspection of the machine, or have a trusted thirty do the inspection for you. Following these steps should lead you to a quality used louver groover.
