Who uses Metalcraft and what do they use if for?
Metalcraft is many things to many people and is highly rewarding in more ways than one.
Here are some of the ways in which our many customers enjoy the benefits of Metalcraft:
DIY / Home Improvement
Just imagine how useful Metalcraft could be around the home and garden. It's not just for making wrought iron projects.
With Metalcraft you can make all sorts of things; brackets, clips, straps and special fasteners for those tricky repair jobs around the house.
For the garden you can make fences, gates, trellis and supports for plants and trees. You can also make hooks, shelves and racking to keep your garage or shed tidy... the list is endless.
A Craft Hobby
If you enjoy making things for no other reason but the joy of working with your hands, Metalcraft is a rewarding hobby. Amongst our customers are many keen woodworkers and those interested in ceramics that enjoy combining metal with wood or pottery.
Many of our customers are those who have reached retirement and are simply looking for something new or different to do.
An Additional Income Generator or Business Start Up
Turn a skill into a money making venture. For some, what started as a pleasurable hobby has turned into an additional source of income, making bespoke wrought iron work or craft objects for sale at local outlets, car boot sales, and fetes.
During economic downturns, many customers have taken a career change and invested in a Metalcraft workshop package because it is quite literally a 'Business in a Box'.
Education, Training and Re-Habilitation
Metalcraft tools are sold extensively to schools, colleges and training centres. They offer a low cost, yet effective introduction to working with metal. They are extremely safe because they involve no heat, welding or fumes.
In Design & Technology subjects in secondary education the tools allow students to quickly convert their design to finished hand made items, giving and instant sense of achievement and ability to analyse the effectiveness of their design.
Beyond this, Metalcraft is also employed in higher education vocational studies and within youth and adult training centres. Not only does it develop metalworking and engineering skills, but can be used in fund raising, in introducing wider business/entrepreneurial skills and in product design, development, manufacture, marketing and selling.
Because of Metalcraft's ability to deliver a sense of achievement and worth it is employed to great effect in the re-habilitation of people in a diverse range of special schools, hospitals and even prisons.
Commercial Craft and Wrought Iron Making Businesses
Metalcraft tools can be found in countless businesses around the world and are used in the commercial manufacture of products involving some element of wrought ironwork. Our tools are used to make large scale products such as gates, fencing, balustrades, furniture and security grilles. At the other end of the scale you can make smaller craft related consumer products such as house signs, lighting and many other home and garden related products.
Many small businesses involved in engineering, motor repairs, maintenance, decorators are asked if they can repair or make gates, railings, etc, so Metalcraft offers an opportunity to diversify and turn a skill into a new money making venture.
Countless Industrial Applications
Despite the fact that Metalcraft tools are used in DIY and education, don't be fooled into thinking they are toys. On the contrary they are extremely robust tools designed for industrial use as well. Also, their inherent metalworking properties make them useful for many commercial, industrial and agricultural purposes.
From fabrication work, to maintenance and specific component production we have countless customers who have been using our tools for many years to cut, punch and shape metal in a diverse range of applications.
