    Charnwood W880 Lathe - are theya good 'step up from beginner' lathe

    Because if they did, the price would need to increase substantially and in all likelihood, they then wouldn't sell as many to the less demanding customers. If they can sell enough of the items at the quality it is being produced at now, why spend more on developing higher quality items and risk...

    Charnwood W880 Lathe - are theya good 'step up from beginner' lathe

    Charnwood do openly state on their website that they source their products from the Far East.....and that the research & development work is done here in the UK. You can read into this statement what you will, but this is from their website...... "The heart of the business has always been in...

    Does a shelf have…

    We are discussing different items here....In my opinion, Planks and dimensioned timber & sheets are measured in length x width x thickness. Once its cut up and made/ installed, it is then measured by width, depth & thickness (or height if it's a cabinet). I dont see any contradiction or...

    Does a shelf have…

    No, I'm not contradicting myself!....The original post and my first replies were referring to shelves & cabinets and I stated my definition of how I believe their dimensions are stated. Once the subject of sheet material and lengths of timber was raised, that's stated differently.

    Does a shelf have…

    .....I thought we were talking about shelves & cabinets...?? Timber & sheet materials are stated as length x width x thickness. Beds..??!!.....I thought they were Single, Double, King & Super King sizes...?

    Does a shelf have…

    I can only speak from a cabinet perspective but i have always measured in width x depth x height, never "length" ! If asked its size, I would always state how wide it was, never how long it was.... If it's left to right, it's width. If it's front to back it's depth. If it's up & down it's...

    Maybe it's a "kitchen" thing Bob...? :)

    Does a shelf have…

    For me, a shelf is width x depth x thickness. A cabinet would be width x depth x height.

    Startrite 400s

    I thought it might have been. (y) They dont seem to come up as often as the TS 145, 165, 175, & 275 models. I've got a feeling the 400 series were bigger than their TS counterparts...??

    Startrite 400s

    There is a 3 phase one for sale on the Bay at the moment. It's a table saw...It needs quite a bit of work though by the look of it and has a few missing parts...

    Cheap Dogs for MFT

    I've been using 20mm conduit as rough & ready dogs for ages. It is a rather loose fit in my Festool MFT and it falls straight through the hole without a shoulder on it but is a real snug fit in my full size CNC'd MFT top. I dont fill the centre of mine with wood either...!

    If anyone decides to do this, please take note of Doctor Bob's post above (post 10), and the glass will need to be Tempered.

    Professional domestic kitchen lighting help/advice needed please

    I would suggest you get your G4 LED's first and try them to see if they will work with the existing transformer.....If not, then look to source an LED driver. Generally, the transformer is located separate from the switch/ speed control in domestic extractor hoods. From memory, the last pair...

    Professional domestic kitchen lighting help/advice needed please

    As Homer's Double said, you MAY need to change the existing transformer for an LED Driver if you swop the G4 halogen lamps for equivalent G4 LED's. I say "MAY", ....because I've done this swop on at least 4 or 5 different brands of kitchen extractor hood and some work fine with the existing...
