    Which wood for garden furniture?

    i would use iroko purely for durability, but Oak treated right would be ok. I have recentley been using an Osmo finish, I forget the name of it now but it is very waxy and flexibile.

    gas nail guns

    you need to check out the new senco gun. Doesnt use gas and doesnt need refilling, think it uses a pressurised nitrogen chamber or something. Had a go of one in the shop the other day. Really good. Have a look, cos they are going to take over from gas easily, not much more expensive and nothing...

    Mafell P1CC Jigsaw... why so expensive?

    I noticed this, super expensive for a jigsaw. I like my mafell tools but I can't see how a jigsaw can be worth that much, what type of work would someone have to be doing for it to be worth them buying?

    The Fes fetish

    Chems, make sure you keep an eye on that hose. I have had to return two now, because they keep going into an oval shape and losing all their flexability! They go very stiff and do exaclty what you say your other hose was doing. Just because its festool doesn't mean everything is perfect, this...
