Just thought some of you might be interested in these upcoming tools
what I believe will be available in Lidl on the 26th September.
The vice is £20 and the f clamps are for sale @7 each for a single, but a pair or a three pack of the smaller sizes are there too.
Needed a decent compact vice in...
One tip for sharpening, likely one which cannot be argued with is..
Looking at the back/face tomato/tomato
and seeing if it's the same profile with no wire edge after a lick.
This is easier with a whiteboard hung on the wall I find, as it really helps to see the burr,
and tells you where you...
Is there f clamps in lidl at this very minute?
I have bought a bin full of the largest size, and rate them mens shed indestructible!.
I haven't tested out the other two smaller sizes, to see if the screw heads might fall off.
(the Achillies heel of many a clamp)
Might get one or two today if the...
Did you buy it?
I can't see what it says, but I don't see 240v anywhere.
I see what appears to be 400 / 410?
If it's fixed star wound, then you'd need to dig out the windings to find the star point.
I'm guessing the fixed star wound motor would have some more information apart from 400 and 410...
If it's been there for a lung tang, then surely those wires are due an inspection.
While you're checking for anything stuck in it, rat cat etc...
Check if anything is in the motor fan, as it could likely be plastic, delicate and balanced, sorta.
Just giving some options should one be in a position without having a vice or anything really.
A few large f clamps from Lidl would do all of ones workholding, even if one was just using an old sleeper or whatever.
The largest of these powerfix ones are about 7 or 8 pounds each,
With the large...
Just gonna chuck some more stuff/options out there, as the biggest obstacle
is finding a compact or functional design that would suit a solid timber top, something like in the photo with the trestles say, (as in laminated planks on edge)
It might be worth noting that a built in vice is not too...
If all else fails, motor oil and plastic bags.
To be clear, I'm not a handtool only zealot.
The bench and really good lighting are always the most underrated tools, which is doublelly important if not having machines to process the stock.
I don't have a planer thicknesser...
Haha, yes I tried to do it the other way beforehand, but I have some sort of dyscalculia.
Tried several ways to do these double tenons, which I admit was a challenge with all methods I've tried.
It was adding the offset which was some odd measurement, was screwing with my brain :D
From what I've seen the wheel gauges seem more versatile, and can be good for those who might not be as good with their math as they would like.
Not saying that a wooden one can't be as good or better for most jobs,
but in 10 years, yet to see someone honestly demonstrating the traditional...
Will take note of that Jacob, although I've only probably used the thing once or twice TBH.
It seems strange the amount of play in the slot and the blade.
It could be that way to counteract rust I suppose, but just could be whatever blade they were cutting
the slot with either?
I love the wheel...
Hello and welcome to the forum.
I don't really see your introduction as a question, because I have no clue what you're intending to make.
Outfitting stuff like stairs, kitchen units doors carpentry and joinery,
or fine woodworking starting with boxes or things which up your skills to make...
Thanks to Dr Silvia for sorting out meds for the carbuncle I had where the sun don't shine.
Rang again today semi delirious from pain and no sleep to see if I could up my meds, but was advised to go to the big house instead.
Considered this, but needed a nap first and thankfully not needed to go...
