    Glazing interior window

    I'd be tempted to put a double glazed unit in instead of a single pain. You can get stepped units so one piece if glass is larger than the other, enabling it to be fitted without having to rebate any deeper. You can then put a beading on the inside.

    Good reason to leave your table saw guard on

    The reason your piece of Walnut got thrown back was your rip fence shouldn't pass the centre point of the blade, from the front of the blade to the centre the blade is holding your timber down. After that it's only going to launch it skywards. The saw blade should ideally be set with the tooth...

    I don't have much luck with jigsaws!

    Reading through most of this thread people are struggling with their jigsaws. The common denominator is that I think the sweep action isn't being used. Also don't force a jigsaw, you're using a power tool instead of a handsaw. Let the tool do the work. Hopefully this will help. Happy Jigsawing...

    Wadkin BGS10…The rarest table saw Wadkin made. Full Restoration

    Very interesting stuff. I have a BGS12 that I served my apprenticeship on, I've been using it now for almost 40yrs and my father before me. It's certainly needing new bearings for the sliding table. Has anyone fabricated anything to make it extract better. There's an attachment on my crown guard...

    I don't have much luck with jigsaws!

    Most modern Jigsaws will handle 30mm oak without any issues. The standard quick release works well if the blade is fitted correctly. On battery and cabled machines they now have a sweep action with normally 3 setting, 3rd setting the roughest. This sweep action allows the blade to work like we...
