    Best finish for table tops?

    I need some advice on the best finish to use for horizontal surfaces which need to be resistant to use/wear and having things placed upon them, such as the tops of tables, sideboards and so on. I'm working with pine at the moment, and while I want to be able to bring out as much of the wood...

    Best type of buffing/polishing attachment?

    OK. So the car body paint buffers do the same job as buffing wax on wood?

    Sanding discs flying off orbital sander!

    Is this in any way avoidable? Is it because the velcro/hook and loop mounting disc on the sander itself needs replacing? Can anyone recommend a model where this is less of a problem? It's driving me nuts!

    Best type of buffing/polishing attachment?

    Hi Can anybody recommend the best type of attachment for buffing/polishing wood after it's been waxed? I'll probably use it as a power drill attachment, or on an angle grinder. Links to Tool Station/Screwfix etc would be great, if suitable!

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    Yep, sounds like a plan. Given that I'm only going to be using mine for doing cross-cuts for now, I might just secure the back portion of the table in place with bolts, and look at a way to make it easier to remove some time in the future.

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    I already have a table saw, so I'll probably be using the 1251 mostly for cross cuts. I've been using a chop saw, but it doesn't provide a reliable enough 90 degree cut, so I figured the ELU, with it's more sturdy and rigid design, would serve me better. I've actually just realised that the...

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    By the way, are the steel inserts really necessary? Would it still be OK without them?

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    Cheers for that additional useful info, AfterMo. I was thinking of making mine from a OSB with a layer of ply on top.

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    Yep, cheers Andy. I've already downloaded that, and you're right - it does show the original setup/configuration. However, unless I missed something, I don't think it actually states the dimensions?

    The rear table depth of 150mm... is that the distance between the two fences, or does it include the thickness of the fences?

    ELU 1251 RAS worktable

    Hi all. Newbie here. I just bought an old ELU 1251 RAS, but it has no work table, and I'm going to make one. I'm sure there must be somebody on here who has one; can anyone give me the length/breadth dimensions for the various sections, please?
