    Chip Extractor for PT

    I'm looking for a decent chip Extractor on a budget. Eyeing up the Axy trade PT with the helix head but specs show it needs 1000m3 an hour and having spoken to Axy they've said a 1hp machine won't do it and needs to be 1.5hp as a minimum really and to keep the run short. Anyone have any ideas...

    SIP 01332 - fence issues

    Took delivery if my new table saw today - a SIP 01332 Now maybe I'm just unlucky, maybe I've done something wrong or maybe I just expect to much for my £1200 but the fence is absolutely awful. You have to grab the actual fence as opposed to the locking handle if you want to move it and even...

    Where to start

    Now I've got the workshop where I want it I've got some space for a small bench top lathe. I've never tried turning before or looked at it seriously so no idea what to look for in terms of lathes or tools. I've got maybe £400 - £500 all in to get going and the lathe needs to be moveable as...

    Saw Blade bore enlargement

    I've got a pratically new 254mm 40t blade from Key Blades and fixings I bought for my soon to be returned table saw in a 5/8th arbor which is not a common UK size. The new table saw will be a larger bore so wondered if anyone knew of a company that can enlarge the bore safely? Tried a few...

    Fine cross cut 254mm Tablesaw blade

    Maybe my Googling skills have failed me but I'm really struggling to find a decent 60t crosscut blade in 254mm for my table saw. I ordered one from Axminster but it's arrived and packaging states it's for mitre saws so assuming wrong take for a TS. I can find plenty of 250mm blades bit not any...

    Picked up a big chunky board of this for £20at the excellent hardwood offcut shop on Brentwood today. I've made it a habit to try and buy something new to me each time I go there. What's it like to work with and finish?

    Considering a Budget PT

    So since getting back into woodworking I've been managing using a mixture of hand planes and power tools (router, router table and table saw) to dimension and thickness timber but I've hit a few limitations. Firstly thicknessing by hand is no fun and is going to be less fun as I try and size...

    Got to Love Tuff Saws

    Boiled Linseed Oil on tea light holders

    Made a few tea light holders over the weekend out if Cedar of Lebanon. Went for 4 coats of boiled linseed oil to finish instead of the Osmos polyx I usually use as CoL is resinous so I don't think a wax oil will be good for it. Now my question is given that Boiled Linseed Oil is considered...
