    Stainless steel top for island unit

    Thanks for all your thoughts. I've reported back and mission control is still keen. Bob- I like the design of your top - gives a softer looking edge than a rolled top and would probably fit the look of the rest of the kitchen better while not trapping dirt during cleaning. Would it be cheeky to...

    Stainless steel top for island unit

    Thanks AJB. I take your point about having rolled edges. From what I had read the 316 steel should not stain as easily but I have no real world experience of this. I do know that the oak counter tops we currently have are a PITA to keep looking smart - constantly getting ring marks from wet pans...

    Stainless steel top for island unit

    Hi, I'm in the middle of making an island unit for our kitchen. Finished top size will be 1.2 x 2.5 m. The plan for the top is 2 sheets of mrmdf with stainless steel on top. This will all be lipped with oak. Does anyone have any idea what thickness of steel sheet we should use and whether we...

    Kids & phones, am I getting old?

    We got my 11 yo a phone for his Christmas last year. Glad we did as he is now at high school and the school is so short on money they cannot photocopy class handouts, worksheets etc so they have to access the files digitally - phones out in every class so they can do their work! All homework is...

    Elektra Bekcum BAS 316G Bandsaw Drive Belt replacement

    I think I've worked it out. It seems that there is a single circlip holding the bottom wheel in place.

    Elektra Bekcum BAS 316G Bandsaw Drive Belt replacement

    Does anyone know how to replace the drive belt of the above bandsaw (or equivalent) without removing the lower wheel? I really don't want to remove the wheel then have to realign it.

    Face masks

    Thanks, you beat me to it. Many vaccines require a 85-90% uptake before they are effective and it is always the last 10-15% that are difficult to get, hence why making a vaccine mandatory would be a good way to go, even if politically unpalatable. Mind you, wearing seatbelts was made mandatory...

    Face masks

    Polio, small pox, hepatitis, measles, mumps, rubella, ebola are just a few of the deadly diseases that are controlled or have been eradicated by vaccines. The vaccination strategy only works if a very large proportion of the population take the vaccine. Measles is now starting to kill children...

    Cascamite not setting properly

    I thought Aerolite was different again? This is almost getting as confusing as a sharpening thread! :lol:

    Cascamite not setting properly

    Apologies. I thought that link was a recommendation specifically for veneering as I didn't see OneShot referenced on the website.

    Cascamite not setting properly

    Thanks for all the info! Upon searching for OneShot google throws up lots of different brands including plain old cascamite from polyvine. Is there a reliable brand of OneShot I should consider?

    Cascamite not setting properly

    Given the variable quality of this glue what are the alternatives for exterior joinery repairs. I've got a bottle of Titebond3, should I just use that?

    Cascamite not setting properly

    Sorry. Should have done a search first. The batch of the tub I just opened is 32435. Exactly the same as the one that Chris had trouble with. Anyone have the contact details for Polyvine and a batch number that is good?! Thanks, H.

    Cascamite not setting properly

    Hi All, I have been doing a large number of window repairs during lockdown/summer. Getting rid of all the rot has meant I have been splicing in replacement parts. I have been using cascamite for all the repairs and so far not had a problem. I'm on window 11 of 19 and just opened a new pot of...

    So, do most of you use sketch up for your designs?

    I just had to get a new laptop and have lost the free desktop versions of SU I used. I think they were the 2016 or 2017 versions. I have now tried the online version and find it horrible and I'm not spending money on the pro version. I'm really tempted to just ditch it and go with Fusion 360 or...

    sealing between window and wall

    Dundonians hate us, Edinburgers hate us. I think you are all just jealous of the beautiful Kingdom :lol: Masons are only doing click and collect at the moment so I will have to give them a ring. Only problem is that chief controller noticed the mastic comes in lots of colour variations so I...

    Thanks very much Phlebas. That looks interesting. I don't suppose you have the title and author of the book?
