    Wadkin Knife setting jig for BAO/S 12

    Alan, Good luck finding one as i recall looking at other brands, not cheap. I'm just about to get the same machine up and running, 3Phase. But I'm guessing you've had a PT before. I have an older Axminster Perform PT and I've never bothered with the setting tool. I used to use the steel rule...

    4 in 1 garden tool....

    I bought this, just for the chainsaw and hedge cutting. No problems so far. My logic was that it was going to cost me far more than £150 to get someone in to crop the oak tree and cut the hedge. So at this price, it was almost disposable. https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/the-han ... ulti-tool/

    Any recommendations/tips/views for CAD/3D modelling software

    Sketchup is free to download, I use it a lot. Mainly for woodworking stuff. But I also do 3D printing so I also use Fusion360. If you are not familiar with 3D, start out with SketchUp or one of the other free software noted above. It is intuitive and loads of tutorials on YouTube.

    International Woodworking Festival - London

    There are no cameras that I know about. i've stayed there ages and never worried about it. There are no machines etc to pay for any type of parking.

    International Woodworking Festival - London

    Chaps, This is just a hop skip etc for me, but I note parking is £10. There is a shopping centre at Gallions Reach just around the corner so if you don't fancy paying the parking on site, its less than 10min walk from the Gallions Reach shopping centre which is free parking. Might suggest the...

    False Widow Spider Bite

    Working on my workshop external cladding last week and I got bit by a false widow. I have loads of them in the garden. The name obviously suggests its link to its ozzy cousin. But I never realised they could knock out a fit 50yold bloke. Three days off work, nausea, headache, lethargic, aches...

    Cheap laser engraver?

    Sorry for not replying earlier. Will have to check but it came with the device. Nothing recognisable. The issue is it can find home without being connected to a PC. My point is that is currently the opposite corner. when I then connect with the software and tell it to go to home ie 0,0 on X and...
