    dewalt 1st fix nail gun review

    I had 2 DeWalt nail guns, and both often jammed, I sold the second one while it was still working and got the Ryobi with 5ah batteries, I have been using it quite a bit lately and am happy with it, it has not misfired or jammed once

    Wanted Magswitch magnets

    I bought the ones from Rutlands Neodymium Magnetic Jig Block | Next Day Delivery and I am more than happy with them, I tried pushing them sideways but could not move them, I will make up a feather board and use 2 of them, which will be removable to use in other jigs

    Wanted Magswitch magnets

    They seem to be good, but all out of stock at the moment, I have arranged to be notified when they are back in stock, I have watched Steve's video and will use that principle for feather boards, it seems to work well, and 4 magnets for just over a £10

    Wanted Magswitch magnets

    Thank you all, I have had a look at the Bandsaw featherboard kit, and I would have to pay £35 postage, and maybe import duty, but getting them on Amazon would be free postage, they are very expensive for what they are (magnets) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01B59KW6Q/ref=sw_img_1?smid=&psc=1

    Noob tipsfor Laser Cutter / CNC for woodworking?

    I bought an X-carve years ago when they first came out, it worked fine but fiddling with belts and pulley wheels was a nightmare, so after about a year using it I decided to build my own using linear rails and ballscrews, which I still use and it is so much better, I also use a water-cooled...

    Workshop bench advice, please

    Just use a belt sander and a long straight edge then finish with a random orbit sander, then a couple of coats of oil, it will look better

    Aldi Bandsaw ( new model) coming soon. Buy it or choose other model

    I managed to straighten the bent base, I put a piece of 40mm thick oak I had, under the base and bolted the saw to the oak, when I tightened the bolts it pulled the base back to where it should be, so the steel base is very thin and easy to bend

    Memory foam

    Thank you all for your excellent advice, I have asked a lot of suppliers and there are so many different answers it is hard to decide, but I went with Foam Superstore because of the good reviews, (if they can be believed) but that is for another time
