    Axminister - How is the quality?

    I have to say my own personal experiences have been very good, I have a Bandsaw & combined disk & belt sander, I'm very pleased with both and have experienced no issues so far but there is no real longevity yet as both are less than 18mths old. Personally I have used Axi because I have one...

    Pyrograph machine

    I had a soldering iron type prior to the Peter Child and its chalk and cheese. I did a one day course with Bob Neill that was unbelievable grounding and used a Peter Child there before purchasing - definitely no regrets and would recommend. hth Padster

    Might be a dumb question & I hope it's the right forum....Boxes & Brass

    All thanks for all the links so far all look useful and give me options. I was also thinking about some of the decorative things maybe like I guess ‘corner protectors’, and the ones that either go round or through the sides on the edge if that makes sense? So I’ve just seen another thread and I...

    Band saw cutting issues

    I recently get a new bandsaw and wanted to be sure I had the best possible set up so I did lots of reading and searching and found that a you tube video by Alex Snodgrass was widely recommended - I’ve used this and it all works as I wished ....I’m no expert but it might be worth a watch. hth Padster

    Newbie Alert.

    Welcome - and I have done a SAC a while back - I have to say my experience with the instructor I had was he like you said tried to make it fun to deliver, makes a difference to being lectured and as I regularly present in my day job is something I always try and include.

    That is exactly it for me, well the last part - it's having an end product something I can touch and feel - I'm a consultant so spend most of my time talking about stuff (was an engineer back in the day) but not been 'hands on' for years. IT affords me the lifestyle I want woodworking means I...
