    What's the point.....

    of the "find your nearest etc. etc." search facility? Just out of idle curiosity I did a search based on my post code, gradually increaing the "distance" facility and guess what? You've got it - nobody within 50Km! I then did a search by "County" - got "Deep in Wood" ( less than 10 km from...

    Has anybody.........

    ....used/seen/know anything about this offer from Rutlands? http://ebm.cheetahmail.com/c/tag/hBScE0 ... .chtah.com And before I get the usual avalanche of "make your owns" thats just not practicable for me at the moment! (hammer) It certainly looks a fair bit better than the £99 beech one...

    Problems with Internet Explorer

    Recently, when trying to use the Forum, my computer seems to freeze up. Task manager shows CPU useage at 100% and nothing is happening. Eventually I sometimes get a message that says: "Stop running this script? A script on this page is causing I.E. to run slowly. If it continues to run, your...

    Adding images

    Where's the bl***ing instructions for adding images to posts? I've tried both search methods and got zip! (hammer) Surely it ought to be a sticky here or on the home page?

    Jimi43 - Lineshaft driven workshop

    Any updates on the move Jim? P.S. re: National Gas & Oil Engines. I don't know how it came to me, but I remembered last night that I watched on Quest a programme (I assume originally on Discovery) where Tommy's mate Alan Herd was restoring a Town class narrow boat and during the programme he...

    Even more chisel stuff!

    I originally put this in chippy1970's post, but I thought that it possibly run its course, so here it is again! A neighbour of mine asked me if I would look after his dog whilst he was away with his Wife in their Camper van. In order to thank me, he gave me a four piece chisel set that he'd...

    Blister Woodrat

    Blister, Did you ever get the information you needed about the Woodrat, the Router Boss and the Leigh jig? For my input I would say that Martin Godfrey invented an incredible tool to help him with making joints, he's tried to upgrade the machine but he's been slow to understand the marketing...

    Grinding Jigs

    Has anybody tried the "Storme" jig that Axminster are now selling? It looks very much like a clone of the Wolverine, but includes all the bits that are add-ons for the Wolverine and therefore it comes out at about half the price. Secondly, as I'm sometimes a bit heavy handed when grinding (used...

    If you had to choose.......

    If you already had a variable speed belt sander and a (very) old 1/3 sheet orbital sander, which vibrates like hell and probably won't last much longer and had a very tight budget (say £60 - £100) what would you go for at this stage: ROS, Palm or Delta? Main use would be for finishing things...

    Help: Record 077A

    I seem to have lost the threaded spindle and adjusting nut for my Record 077A block plane. It must be on the workshop floor somewhere but I'm buggered if I can find it! Has anybody out there got a spare?

    Can it get anyworse?

    Last week I bought a Digital SLR on the bay, I got a good deal pricewist but it turned up with no manual and so memory card. I hate manuals on screen so although I've downloaded one, I'm happy to say that Pentax can still provide with one in hard copy for only 15quid. But even so, today I had to...

    For Lurker and Jimi43

    Don't want to hi-jack the other thread so see general chat re: Land Rover and Pentax. Sorry for the rants, but I can't log in to the Glos Rugby fanzine site and I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms! :twisted: Edited to add: P.S. I've put "community" in inverted commas 'cos I don't want to be...

    For Lurker and Jimi43

    Thanks chaps, it's nice to be appreciated! :oops: To clarify a couple of points. Land Rover: I had a 11A for years, but eventually I got fed up with the trek from Oxfordshire to Exmoor with two dogs and a full length roof rack full of camping gear, fishing tackle, photo kit and half of the...

    Question for Bob (ninefingers)

    As we've got 2 threads currently running on the subject of 3 phase/single phase, inverters, converters (static, rotary, digital etc.), why don't you do a brief exposition on the subject and bung it in the "How-To" section? I'm sure it would be highly appreciated and would cut out a lot of the...
