    Bi Fold hinges

    4mm glass in the doors will weigh less than say 18mm mdf so with your proposed width, I can't see a problem there. 6mm toughened glass supported at 1/4 and 3/4 along the length should be fine but if you must support from the ends alone, tot up the weight you need to support and consult your...

    Tauco pillar drill

    Chronos and RDG supply drill chucks with female tapers as well as arbours MT1 to fit their chucks. Choose your chuck first and then the arbour to fit. Usually JT3 or B16 in a 16mm chuck To be honest 16mm chuck is too big for this machine but it is doable if you respect its limitations. Bob

    Finally got the milling machine!

    These folk have a very good reputation. http://www.ctctools.biz/servlet/StoreFront I've just bought a set of ER32 collets from them and they are top notch. Turned up from HK in a few days having been opened by customs and no charges made. Maybe that part was luck. £71.28 including airmail...

    Router bits getting stuck

    I assume you are talking about a DeWalt? Have you clipped the collet into the nut, before inserting the cutter? To take the bit out, you have to release the nut until it is free, turn some more and it will tighten slightly and then it eject the collect and release the bit. There is no need to...

    Veneered ply 1.5 mm supplier

    Do you need plywood? I think you can get 1.5mm thick veneers in various hardwoods. Someone on another forum certainly used thick oak veneer on a project a while back. Bob

    Evans automatic saw. Or mill?

    You would need one hell of a single phase supply to run a converter satisfactorily. Add that to it needing to be indoors to be any good, sounds like you can pass it on to your mate and get him to let you use it every now and then. If you want to board out logs then how about an Alaskan mill with...

    Evans automatic saw. Or mill?

    If you have got the space, keep it. Unless it is fitted with all the current safety gizmos, it is unlikely to have a huge market value compared to the jobs that it will do with ease in an enthusiasts workshop. Bob

    Rojek switchgear and the current heatwave.

    Elu 177 Stuck collet and cutter- HELP

    WD40 is NOT a penetrating fluid and is virtually useless for this. It is a water displacer - the clue is WD Proper penetrating fluid such as plus gas is the stuff to use. Bob

    Electrical problem

    Fit a type C breaker. Bob I've just looked at the spec for that saw. Absolutely no way that the starting current will be limited to 14.5 amps , that is the likely RUN current for that machine, starting will be nearer 30amps or more. 16a type c should handle that.

    Rojek switchgear and the current heatwave.

    I suggest looking at the motor connection box. There should be 3 heavy leads for the phases and an earth. If there are another two, perhaps thinner wires, this could be a temperature sensor leading back to the NVR Take off the fan cover from the back of the motor and make sure the fan fins are...
