    Moving Workshop Advice

    Good morning all, Unexpectedly we are moving from our own family house in North Yorkshire back into rented accommodation. Due to my career we do move around a lot (roughly every 2 years) though on this occasion it was genuinely something of a surprise! This means I have yet another conundrum...

    Kity 1637 Fence Upgrade

    I recently purchased and restored a Kity 1637 and largely it is now working beautifully. The one thing that evades me is the fence. I can't seem to get the fence to stay square even when set correctly. Does anyone have any advice on how to solve this problem or have any ideas for aftermarket...

    Kity 1637 Help

    Hello all, I recently got hold of a good deal on a Kity 1637 and have been spending the last few days tarting it up a little as it had a very rusty cutter block etc. It's now planing beautifully and I'm very pleased with the machine, but there are two outstanding issues/ questions I'd like some...

    Head torch recommendations?

    I can actually help with this one as I use them for a living and have tried a fair few different types. Unless for a very specific application (ie cave diving etc) I would recommend Petzl. I have found them utterly reliable in some absolutely appalling conditions. Personally I use the Tactikka...

    Sub £1000 Planer Thicknesser

    As it stands my options are a new Metabo HC260 (£600) or a good nick Kity 637 (£920). There are a few low priced HC260 models near me but they all look in very poor condition and I’m running out of time as there are a few orders I need to get in for Christmas. Sadly I haven’t managed to find...

    Sub £1000 Planer Thicknesser

    Hello all, I've joined the forum as I'm in the market for a new combination Planer/ Thicknesser and wanted to know if I was missing anything. At the moment I have a top end budget of around £1,000 which would have to include any delivery/ courier. I have just enough space for a floor...
