    Triton Tra001 Router question

    I have never needed to lock any of my 3 tritons that are in tables, it’s never even occurred to me to do it, in fact I stripped all additional plastic handles and parts off my machines as well as taking the plunge spring out… they have never moved when doing cuts.

    Oscillating/bobbin/ spindle sander

    Depends on the sort of size you need, I have a floor standing JOVS10, it’s great, use it most days but I remade my own custom spindles that were much taller for my jobs and took hook and loop paper. there are loads of smaller bench top models

    16 amp fuse question

    Please please just call an electrician. It’s worth doing, I’m fine with basic home electrics & have a decent understanding of 3 phase, but beyond the very basics and especially for my workshop I call in my electrician…. don’t take the risk.

    Found Sliding table for 01332 saw

    No problem i had to drill holes for the mounting brackets as this is designed to fit the axminster version theirs is pre drilled, the 01332 isn't, i also had to move one switch wire that runs down the inside frame which was right where a hole needed to be, but that was a simple job... once you...

    Bench Buffing Machine

    i have many buffing machines for lacquer & metal finishing, mostly lacquer buffing for high gloss work on wood, but i also learned early on if you are doing finishes such as guitars & in my case drums (same finishes but much bigger areas on drum) a covered grinder is useless long term. i burned...

    Found Sliding table for 01332 saw

    only thing i dont like is that its a pain to keep taking the cross cut fence off when i need more cutting room, its rather annoying, I'm deciding how to mod it to make things work better.

    Soundproof Plasterboard - How effective for alcoves?

    It’s a snotty substance that never truly drys, but sets enough to not sag… it’s great at preventing vibration conduction through hard mass… the biggest problem is it’s terrifyingly expensive…

    Soundproof Plasterboard - How effective for alcoves?

    Adding mass to a wall is great for preventing some frequencies traveling directly through that surface….. but, sound proofing is only as good as it weakest point, you could sound board the wall, 2 layers, green glue in between, sealing any air transfer from those areas… but what about the floor...
