    Record Power AC400 Vs Axminster AC15AFS

    I went for the record power in the end, seems to do the job although I have to say the remote is rubbish I find my self walking up to it and trying every angle to get it to respond, not sure why. The unit it’s self though does the job.

    Casters with retractable self levelling foot

    I’ll look into them as they look promising. This is kind of the thing that I was originally talking about. Link

    Casters with retractable self levelling foot

    It doesn’t need to be one unit but the closest thing is Twin Wheel Adjustable Levelling Castors - Plate Fitting Spanner Operated (WDS 12199) I’d like something where the foot can be quickly raised out of the way so it can be moved then pushed down to re engage.

    Casters with retractable self levelling foot

    Hi everyone, I’m looking for some casters to go on various workbenches in my workshop but I also need self levelling feet as the floor isn’t level. Has anyone come across an adjustable foot that you can raise and lower to engage the casters? I’m sure I’ve seen this but I can’t for the life of...

    Record Power AC400 Vs Axminster AC15AFS

    Hi everyone, I’m looking at the two air filters in the title, I’ve seen a few threads on here talking about the AC400 and people seem pretty happy with it but I can’t find much on the Axminster model. Are there any opinions on one verses the other? On paper the Axminster seems to be a little...

    Scribing Question

    Cutting a template makes sense. I have two painted infills and I think I can get both out of one so that gives me a little breathing room for whoopsies.

    Scribing Question

    Hi everyone, I have a newbie scribing question. I need to scribe in a fillet into a wall that is at an obtuse angle so I cant use the offcut scribe method as I have on the opposite side where the wall is at 90. My thought at the moment is to take a few measurements along the length of the...

    Large format MFT Plans

    That’s good to know, I thought MDF might be a problem. I think I’ll switch to birch ply for the top and put two horizontal extrusions to support it.

    Large format MFT Plans

    Thanks for the comments, adjustable feet sound like a sensible idea. Ideal solution would be putting the brake on lowered a foot. Not sure if I’ll be able to find such a thing. One of my concerns is that the top may sag with the weight of the router although it is well supported. I was...

    Large format MFT Plans

    Hi everyone, I am hoping to move into a larger work space soon so I have started looking thinking about my new workbench. I currently use an MFT and I love the functionality of it so I want to make a larger one with storage and a router table. I was inspired by the BF/MFT...

    Axminster Craft AC2305B Opinions

    Hi all, I’ve been thinking of getting a bandsaw for a while and I see the Axminster Craft AC2305B has £120 off at the moment. It seems to have mixed reviews but they seem older when the saw first came out. Does anyone have any experience of this saw or any other recommendations? Thanks

    Blum drawer slide layout question

    I thought about spacers it's just a bit of a hassle. The jig just sets the correct distance from the face and has the correct hole pattern, the issue I have with it is the holes aren't in the middle of the runner and the jig isn't the same height as the draw runner that attaches to the carcass...

    Blum drawer slide layout question

    Hi all, I have a couple of questions on laying out and marking for Blum drawer runners. I have a cabinet that I am going to fit three sets of slides to starting at the bottom and they are to be spaced evenly. I’ve worked out the distance between each pair of runners at 238mm. So far so good...

    Melamine faced MDF/Plywood Supplier North West

    Hi everyone, I’m looking to build a cabinet out of a melamine faced board and I would rather the core was MDF or better yet plywood but I’m struggling to find a supplier from an online search. Does anyone know of a supplier in the North West I’m in Warrington so the closer the better. Thanks
