Editor's Notes

May 28, 2019:

Since the "Portable Edge Bander" selection is a bit limited in terms of online reviews, I have limited the list to only seven selections and used a bit more personal discretion in the vetting process.

In particular, there is a specific model of portable edge bander that is listed on a few websites, but has no specific brand or reviews, and third-party sellers just slap their name on it (OrangeA, Jackbond, Yuchengtech, etc). I decided not to include that model in this list since we really can't tell who manufactures it.

That said, I did include machines made by Maksiwa and Grizzly, even if they didn't have reviews, because of those companies legitimate reputations.

Also, since there is a demographic of woodworker that aren't doing large projects or don't need to maneuver crazy curves and radii, I included a basic $30 clothes iron on the list. An iron works perfectly fine with basic pre-glued edgebanding, and its small price tag makes it an attractive candidate.
