    Workshop hire-out cost?

    Morning all. I'm due to be away for 4 weeks in July/August. A company has asked to hire my workshop while I'm away and set two joiners away in here (I know and trust them both). The question is, how much to charge for such a thing? Monthly w/shop rent to me is £1000 inc VAT Plus around £150...

    Table saw fence

    Yup. That'd be the way to do it. I considered as much myself having done a quite a few arduino/stepper projects. There's a guy out there on the interweb who has designed one with a 'zero' sensor on the fence face and a simple (ish) keypad. He tried but failed a kickstarter I think. These efforts...
