    3phase electric query

    If I have a 5 pin 440v supply (ie 3 live, 1 neutral, 1 earth), can I use it to supply a 230v maching using just one of the lives, the neutral and the earth? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?? Cheers Karl

    UJK pocket hole jig modifications

    Well, not modifications exactly. But merely mounted in a setup to allow for drilling of cabinet sides/longer pieces without removing the jig from its holder. HTH. Cheers Karl

    In the market for a mitre saw. Had been looking at the Bosch and Festool models. Any thoughts? Bosch is £165 cheaper and has bigger capacities. Festool lighter and better dx. Cheers Karl

    Mirka Ceros sander problem

    Hi all I know there are a few Ceros sander (650CV) users out there. Mine is giving me a bit of grief. 6 months ago it went away for repair (outside of warranty period) as it was intermittently refusing to start - the led on the power unit would turn red as soon as the paddle switch on the...

    LN No9 Mitre Plane

    Has this been discontinued??? Looks like it - not on Axi website or LN's own website. Wonder why? I know they brought out the 52(?), but that's handed - the No9 seemed much better value (the Rolls Royce of shooting planes as DC once called it :lol: ) Cheers Karl

    Veritas custom bench planes

    Anybody got any experience of them? Obviously i've read through Derek's review. I was in Axi today and had a quick nosey - looked quite good, and quite competitive on price (5 1/2 for £260 as opposed to £290 for LN). Cheers Karl

    Oak bookcase

    Made a little project this week. 40 planks of prime european oak After a lot of machining, jointing and staining, turns into this I'm really not happy with how the cornice runs into the wall. I wanted to either drop the height of the unit so the cornice could run right across the unit...

    Centauro bandsaw refurb

    I picked up the new bandsaw today. Nice little machine. Well built, nice n simple. But a fair bit of rust, missing the rip fence, no DOL starter, blade guard needs mending and generally a bit of TLC. So I stripped it down and will give it a refurb. More pics to follow. Cheers Karl

    I delivered this today - nice 400 mile round trip..... Overall size 1350 x 900. Double doors on the end give access to a cupboard, and the each of the middle doors on the sides gives access to a through cupboard. Customer hadn't sourced the handles so will fit themselves. Cheers Karl
