Using Conturo to band countertops
« on: June 13, 2017, 05:25 PM »

We are considering purchasing the Conturo edgebander to band 3mm PVC onto countertop edges.  Specficially, we are hoping to band tops that have 3" radius outside corners with 3mm x 1-5/8" banding.  Is anyone having luck using the Conturo for this application?

MEYER, I have used the Conturo to edgeband curves with a radius of 90mm (approx 3.5") with 7/8" wide 3mm PVC edgebanding.  It required a few practice runs but the machine did it.  It did not easily go around the curve with the PVC at room temperature.  I think the wider edgebanding and tighter radius so would be more problematic.  Warming the edgebanding might help but, I have gone to 2mm PVC when I go around curves as it is much easier to maneuver. 

You could always try it with the 30 day trial and see if it does what you want it to do.
