I have a Henry running through a cyclone for lathe and saw and then one of these. I just set the timer and leave it running. Think I paid about £130 before Christmas.
Sheffield in the 70’s and 80’s was no fun - Every generation seems to have a pivotal struggle. Our children now are more open, enabled and told they can do anything. Reality is a kicker.
And go watch when the wind blows, classroom lessons on hiding under the desk to avoid nuclear annihilation...
is there a name for the metal spigot/bus guide and 'cup' on the attached picture? It's for a wool bobbin type thing. Could use a bearing and ground down screw thread, but this looks neater.
I despise the conservatives and Boris, but as a life long labour person I honestly think they would have been as equally clueless especially after the Corbyn, useless pineapple (Didn’t use a fruit word - seems forum does not like bad words even though he’s a foul language alert ), debacle over the last few years...
I picked one of these up on fleabay for about £25 i think. Not used it yet, so cannot comment on suitability, safety etc. If no good, i'll repurpose the bits.
Looking at building wheeled router table, couple of layers of MDF sort of thing, with glued on surface. Where’s best to source laminate sheet for table top? Not something I’ve done before so absolutely no idea with laminates and veneers.
In the States there used to be companies where you could drop ship to as they had lower state tax and they would then forward on. Not sure if still exists, but wonder if we'll start seeing it in the UK.
Charging NI people etc that much of a premium, hows that fair.
Another new ‘turner’ here. Started late last year, mainly pens for the family. For my other half at christmas i managed to get hold of two wood blanks from an old windmill. All going well until i got to the woodworm! Decided to make a feature of it rather than fill.
