    Is there a battery/cordless 23G pin nailer?

    Readers of this thread may be interested to know that you can now order a Ryobi 18v Air Strike 23 gauge P318 cordless pin nailer from Amazon UK. As a grey import from the USA, there is no manufacturers warranty but at £116.59 I took the risk and placed an order - it arrived in about 10 days. So...

    How to charge old Black + Decker 18V A9277 drill batteries

    I used to have a B&D 18V NiCd drill and found that the Dewalt 18V NiCd batteries were compatible It might be easier to switch to a second hand Dewalt NiCd charger & battery? You would need to check compatibility for your particular drill though.

    For Sale 16" Bandsaw Fence

    Hi Micky Yes the fence is still available. Your 315 seems to have a similar table size (548 wide x 400 deep) to the Meber (500 wide x 400). The key dimension is the table thickness. The Meber is 34mm. The 315 needs to be the same or less (if less some spacers will be required). I have added a...

    Linear join on an oak worktop?

    Far better all round to source a longer length. I recently purchased a 4m length of solid oak (strip) worktop for £200 inc. delivery from here: Appearance and quality seem very good but I can't vouch for the longevity as it has only been installed for 2...

    Kreg foreman from the states

    I have also run US 110v tools with both brush and induction motors without any issues. You could make up an adaptor lead to avoid cutting off the original plug.

    bending the veneer around a bullnose step

    Jacob I used a method similar to yours to form the bullnose on my stairs from kerfed solid oak. On the first attempt, the oak split. On the second attempt, I added some steel sheet to the outside, clamped in slight tension and then attempted the bend. Much to my relief this time it worked...

    A day out for woodworkers

    Andy I think that must have been a repeat of the Sir John Harvey Jones Troubleshooter programme on Morgan? I just did a Google search - the original broadcast was 1991 - hard to believe it was over 20 years ago. I also came across an interesting 2009 telegraph article at the link below...

    Cheapish three phase

    I agree with what you say about Jim Cox's method. About 3 years ago, I successfully converted a 3 phase Wadkin AGS10 table saw to run on single phase 240V and it has been running well since.

    Ikea Kitchen Door Size Problem

    Thanks all for your helpful replies. I think I'll try and source a matching door first. If I have no luck there I'll take the material out of the centre as advised. Hopefully it will be almost invisible, if not I'll add edging strip or a feature. Lynn
