    Just bought an angle poise / articulated lamp for £11.29

    Hi folks I was advising a recent member to get an angle poise lamp for himself, and suggested this one looks cheap. The large ones are not too common to find anymore.

    Ever saw linseed oil with another oil as an old recipe?

    Hi folks I have this special blend of oil for tools, and I have some concerns about using it. It definitely has linseed oil in the mix, I'd say its from some rare book. :roll: It is no good for me for honing as its too thick and will carry grit easily to the finishing stone. It does however...

    Budget Lidl arc welder review

    Just thought I'd post a wee review on this budget Lidl arc welder I've had for the past month... I bought this on a spur of the moment thing, as it only cost me 50 euro's, and it saved me slugging an old tablesaw base to the metal shop. I could not fit a bigger welder into the workshop, so this...

    Hello folks Going scrubbing my tablesaw cabinet tonight to get at the last of the deep pitting, before priming.

    A different take on a bandsaw fence

    Hello folks Just saw this last night and I'm impressed to say the least! Have you ever seen a saw purposely set this bad, but still cutting this well ?
