    Which Drill Bill Set - General Purpose

    Thanks so much all the Irony about my question is yes I have lidl sets are they’ve been really good actually.

    Cordless Dust Extractor/Shop Vac/Vacuum

    Hey All My Dewalt 584L is being weird. I have a Festool dust extractor but being in a no power shop a little cordless vac is really useful as it saves me running a massive extension lead from the house. I’m invested in the Festool and Dewalt battery ecosystem but I also have an old Bosch...

    What's the most stupid thing you've done in woodworking?

    My god I have Many but I’m actually having one right now. I’ll probably post a quick vid as it’s easier to explain but essentially I can’t work this Dewalt Cordless Vac haha. It’s a DCV584L with a quick connector on the end of the hose. I can seem to work out how to attach a normal crevice...

    Cordless tool options (manufacturer)

    Don’t forget about dust extraction. I battled with the same issue and with a garage that has no power it was an important decision.

    Peg Boards v French Cleats

    @billw just a coke of day’s ago I was asking the same question and I ended up with going for the Elfa garage tool board peg system, but I did this for a few reasons.

    Routing for beginners (and routing tables)

    As a person that is in only year three of their wood working journey (hence newbie Raf) I asked myself the same questions a couple of years ago. I ended up going for a Dewalt router and trend table, and had only you tube knowledge but never done it myself. I personally find routing really...
