    12mm into half inch doesn't go?

    I know it's an old post but had a similar issue. Fixed it though, Dewalt do sell a 12mm Collet to fit a 1/2" DW625/E I think it may be a euro product only though but you can get them. http://www.mtmc.co.uk/Dewalt-Router-Col ... 37287.aspx

    Extendable Table Butterfly Opening

    I've been asked to make an extendable dining table for my boss to repay him for all the Corian he's bought for me. He know's what he wants, however that entails having a butterfly opening/extension system, I'm sure you'r all familiar with these, but if not check out the link...

    Amazon.com

    What a great place to import your tools, fair enough theres a few things that it wont allow but still some bargains to be had. My brother lives in California and I used to get him to import me the odd bit of kit, but it was a ball ache for him packing it and shipping it, then I had the hassle...

    To float, or not to float?

    I think you make an interesting point though, everything I've ever learnt and been taught about wood tells me if it has nowhere to move it will crack or warp. After speaking to a mate I learn he's seen a few floors cracked and damaged by using floor adhesive. He said he'd never stick a floor...

    To float, or not to float?

    Parquet flooring is made up of small pieces, there's less chance of movement with small bits of wood. They have been sticking hardwood floors down for donkeys years. It's a trusted method. I have no issue with it. Floating is ok too, I'm worried about doing large areas, say 5 meters across...

    To float, or not to float?

    http://www.ukflooringdirect.co.uk/info/ ... loors.html All the hardwood flooring in the Dorchester was stuck down using flooring adhesive to a screed floor. The idea is the floor doesn't move as its 100% stuck.

    At least you have a heads up when it comes to fitting a floor! He he! That'll teach me not to speed read!

    How do you measure up to fit a door?

    I usually start on the longest wall with least obstructions, depending on the floor your laying I'd leave more than 3mm, I recently seen an oak t&g floor move 20mm. Lots of factors involved in you laying this floor, what material is the floor for starters, how your choosing to lay the floor EG...

    Waterproof Tool Bag

    Nice bag, but won't fit a panel saw in bit pricey too! I'm currently using a plumbing type tool bag which is a great size just not waterproof. I tend to just keep only what I need for joisting in it. Probably better just getting a cover of some type, that way it'll cover my circular too.

    Waterproof Tool Bag

    Been doing quite a few sets of joists of late, and sooner or later will be roofing, I'm sick of covering my tool bag with dpc or plastic sacks to keep them dry when it rains. I cant seem to find a waterproof tool bag, or even a waterproof cover. Im not after anything to posh or expensive just...
