    bandsaw

    Having a small startrite bandsaw for metal, I wouldn’t hesitate to go with a bigger one for wood, as mentioned above everything is very nicely made. if Going the second hand route the tires and the guides are the main areas I’d check for wear/damage

    Tool chest hardware supplier

    You could look for a local blacksmith offering taster days, they look doable in a day with some instruction.

    do you need overload protection with a DOL

    Cheers, the internals gives me the starter but the rest of the control circuit is on the overload relay. Just ordered a 1.1-1.6a OL as I worked out FLC to be 1.5a on the motor. When that arrives all should be fine (crosses fingers it’s compatible)

    Drilling a hole through a screwdriver bit

    Carbide Masonry drill sharpened on a diamond stone has worked for me on hardened tool steel. carbide drill will do it to, but as has been said they’re fragile and if you snap it in the whole you’re going to be starting again.

    do you need overload protection with a DOL

    Thanks, that makes sense it’s the control circuit I seem to be missing looking closely I can see what the start switch on the box is acting on but not the stop, it seems to just float. Went with Eaton as Spark who wired workshop rates their stuff, if I need to goback to the shops any links for...

    do you need overload protection with a DOL

    Thanks, yeah it doesn’t have the OL, but I can’t see how to set up the control circuit. may need to call a spark, but thought I’d ask here as people are pretty knowledgeable and helpful!

    Wood identification please

    Spalting can make pretty plain domestic timbers have a lot of figure. I’ve got some nice book matched spalted beech that I plan on using for cupboard doors eventually. If it’s still solid I’d use it for something

    Cut off/scrap fever

    Hardwoods I’ll hoard, softwood goes to kindling. trying to follow the often repeated advice of pick a few timbers and use them, that way easier to use offcuts in the next project

    Pillar drill

    Depends how fresh you want it looking. strip all the old paint then build up layers of primer and filler getting everything smooth before finishing with a 2 pack paint system. Or clean it all down with brake cleaner, and a coat of rattle can. have you checked it all mechanically, worth making...

    Sacrificial anode for machine tools rust prevention

    One of these under a cover should do the trick, https://uk.farnell.com/pentagon/ach20-20w-230v/heater-anti-condensation-20w/dp/3183166 Once I sort out a tool chest for my decent stuff I’m planning to put one of these in the back, and then running it through winter

    Fishtail chisel

    Yeah that’s the one, seems quick to make and effective. I’ve got a ply offcut somewhere that should be big enough.

    Fishtail chisel

    Cheers, yeah usually do exactly that. The jig allows an easy curve to the handle so narrow front and back and some swell to the middle. More thinking about making a jig out of intrigue than due to a real need, bit like the chisel!
