    Sourcing wood

    Thank you for your replies, I have a band saw, I can cut it to size, it just getting hold of it. I have some wood from some tree felling, oak and sycamore, but that is going to take a year or more to dry - I am looking to find where to get some already dried and usable. Ash would be fine, it...

    Sourcing wood

    Dear all, How does one go about finding wood that isn't pen blanks or bowl blanks ? In the current(?) issue of "Woodturning" (#369) there is a Mushroom money box project that requires a block of cherry 11cm x 11cm x 20cm, and another 4cm x 4cm x 11cm - where would one go about sourcing such...

    Henry + cyclone or NV750 ?

    Well, Axminster made the decision for me, they upped the price of the NV750 yesterday by over 20% making it the best part of £500 ! Henry (well James actually) ordered and the cyclone + container for £150 and change. Thanks everyone for your input and advice. Andrew

    Henry + cyclone or NV750 ?

    I am not sure the current version of the NV750 has a 100mm inlet - I think it is 51mm. Maybe you have the NVD 750 ?

    Henry + cyclone or NV750 ?

    Dear all, I am ready to buy a dust extractor for my small (3m x 4m) workshop. I have narrowed it down to a) Henry + cyclone + chip box (about £150) b) Numatic NV750 (about £380) Important things (to me at least) are noise level, fine dust extraction, ability to run for an hour or so without...

    Britain's Best Woodworker

    I rather enjoyed it. Mel tried her best but the judges just sucked the life out of it.
