    Good book on spindle moulders and jigs for spindle moulders

    Hello pgrbff, I’d like one too! I have ‘Spindle Moulder Handbook’ by Eric Stephenson, which is pretty good, and I have seen a video produced a while ago by Roy Sutton which I found very informative. Good luck, and best wishes, Austin

    Fixing marble

    Hello Willsie, I find Araldite sticks most things (the 24 hour cure, not the 5minute version). If you’re thinking of a mechanical attachment, a photo of the table (from top and bottom) would help significantly. Best wishes. Austin

    Spindle moulder cutter blocks

    Hello folks, I own a small Scheppach spindle, but I only really use it for rebates. I am very conscious of my limited knowledge and experience with this (potentially dangerous) machine.
