    Jet Bandsaw Motor Not Spinning Freely

    Hi all, I took delivery of my new (to me) Jet bandsaw yesterday and had to strip off some of the heavier lumps in order to be able to lug it into the workshop. When I took off the motor I noticed that the motor spindle doesn’t spin freely. As far as I can remember all my previous machinery’s...

    Lathe for chairmaking & more - Envoy, Herald, Axi 406

    I've been looking for a new lathe and thought I'd settled on the Herald but the lack of mass and the short-ish bed started to concern me. The more I looked around the more I realised that my £1000 budget just wasn't going to buy me the lathe I desire (not new anyway). I began to look at the RP...

    Hi All, As this is the last of my 110V tools and I don't really give it much use I have decided to part (begrudgingly!) with my Makita 5377MG Hypoid Saw. This saw is amazing - forget everything you know about circular saws, this thing is a beast! I imported it from the USA about 3 years ago...

    FS: Plum and Holly Logs

    Hi All, I have a couple of logs that were cut about 18 months ago. They have been stored in the shade and kept dry so they should be in decent condition and have some good usable wood (probably best suited to turning??). In the photo of both logs the holly is the slightly shorter one. They...

    Newly made oak windows and condensation

    Hi All, First off, apologies to mods if this is in the wrong board, I wasn't sure if it should be here or in General Chat. About a year ago I made a batch of oak sash windows for our old stone-built farm cottage that we are renovating. They were to replace uPVC windows that weren't old and...
