    Does PVA have a shelf life?

    French Import Duties on UK Tools & Machinery ?

    I think you may find the Axminster plate size the odd one out, I understand the Kreg is the standard American size of 9 1/4" x 11 3/4" or 235mm x 298mm as are our JessEm and Incra plates or lifts, Woodpecker would also be this size. Cheers Peter

    Wardrobe construction - Biscuit vs domino

    I have both the biscuit jointers and a Domino, I would normally use the biscuiter for MDF carcass work and the Domino for the solid door mortice type constructions. I would say the manufactured board is the weak point not the jointing method. Either final assembly on site a good back and bracing...
