    Push To Open Hardware

    Don't know if any of you cabinet makers can help. Have a client who wants handle less doors with a push to open feature. I see you can get push to open hinges as well as catches. Do you actually need both the catches AND the hinges or can you just fit the catches as the doors are just going...

    Customer Service....Brilliant

    I finally opted to go for the EZ saw guide system from Eurekazone having watched it's development over that last couple of years. I had a project that involved cutting a load of melamine faced MDF and I already had 3 CSs so wasn't about to splash out on a Festool system. Anyway, I slightly...

    I've got a little used Leigh D4 dovetail jig with all the bits & bobs that go with it. Before I put it on ebay, I thought it might be worth seeing if anybody on the forum would be interested in "swapping" it for a lathe. Ideally, I'm looking for something with a swiveling headstock and...

    Sliding Table

    I have a sliding table that will fit the SIP and SIP derivatives such as the FOX, ITECH etc. I bought it as part of the saw but it's just too big for the workshop. If anybody is interested, then I'd be prepared to swap it for a cast extension table (which you have to remove to fit the sliding...

    Hardwood Worktops

    I've got my first hardwood worktop to fit coupled with a belfast sink. My question is, once I've made the cutout round the sink, what is the best treatment for the edges - should it be some sort of oil such as danish oil or good old polyurethane? Col

    Cutting Edge Woodworker

    Has anybody been watching this new offering on H&L? Paul Bradburn produces some nice pieces however, I find the filming soooooo infuriating. The camera seems to focus more on his face than what he's doing with his hands. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with his face, it's just that I'm...

    Board Edging Trimmer

    I have some MFC panels to edge and will be using Melamine edging. Can anybody help me locate the little handheld tool for trimming the edges once the edgig strip is applied. I've seen Norm using one and this new guy from "Cutting Edge Woodworking". It looks like it is a device that has a...
