When it comes to setting up your workshop, you should start with basic equipment. Then you'll need the right tools and machines. Always keep the following questions in mind: How much experience do you have? How often will you use your workshop? Which materials will you mainly work with? Whether you're a DIY enthusiast or a professional craftsperson, we're sure to have all the equipment you need.

Basics

Are you planning to set up a workshop or are you reorganising the one you have? Check out our range of workbenches, toolboxes and shelving – it’s important to get the basics right. Tool boards and tool boxes offer great storage while a workbench or a joiner's bench serves as a working top.

Stationary machines

Once you’ve got the basics right, it’s time to think about stationary machines. How about a lathe, a table saw or a bench drill?

For DIY enthusiasts

Every household needs some basic tools such as a hammer, screwdrivers and pliers. With a toolset, you’ll have everything you need at hand – and you’ll always know where to find your tools.

Protective equipment

Wearing good DIY clothing is essential: Never work without suitable shoes and clothing. You should wear protective glasses, a dust mask and earmuffs, especially for sawing.
