Finger joint making machines are used for making finger grooves on wood. And these grooves can then be joined together using adhesive and a pneumatic press. A hardwood block is given to this machine, which utilises carbide-tipped cutters on both sides to create finger grooves. Short pieces of wood are joined together to create longer components. The joint is kept together by glue and is made up of many meshing wood "fingers" or wedges in two neighbouring sections. Finger joint making machines are capable of making both structural and non-structural goods. These are automatic and robust in construction.
