    Setup for a beginner - really long shopping list

    Haven't followed this thread so may be repeating: cutting sheets or ripping long pieces over a TS in a small space cut sheets down to handleable size first by hand, but with reference to your cutting list of course ditto long pieces - cut to length by hand first

    Linseed Paint - sorry...

    Actually it's easy to brush it out but it feels as though you should be layering it on thicker - you just have to resist!

    Linseed Paint - sorry...

    Thread here Holkham Paints - Woodwork UK Seems it's nearer 15 years since I first used it! Haven't changed my mind on it, use nothing else externally. Yes rain resistant even before dry. I've painted in chilly October - just takes a bit longer to go off.

    Linseed Paint - sorry...

    It was a problem at first until I read the instructions - basically to brush it out very thin. Any runs or thick layers won't dry at all well. It's very different from applying modern paint and little skill required, but it does have to be brushed thin. No need for thinners other than oil...

    Linseed Paint - sorry...

    Did it get us hot under the collar? Why on earth would it? Can't say I recall anything. It doesn't bubble in the sun. That's what turned me on to it in the first place - I'd painted a couple of south facing ledge/brace/batten doors following all the rules - ali primer and everything. Leyland or...

    Any history please

    Made in Sheffield just up the road from me. Might have been cast in Derby just down the road from me.

    Bench dog hole tear out

    I posted about it here https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/threads/holdfasts-types-and-uses.119565/#post-1312105It's like the Moxon vice but horizontal and zero cost. (or price of two bolts) I was experimenting with quickest way to do DTs by hand. First pic shows an ordinary bolt through. Just a loose...

    Starting out with rough sawn

    Looks OK except doesn't have a sliding table These are extremely useful, in fact essential I think. Don't worry about steel construction they can be perfectly OK. Band saw is generally useful but limited in many ways - mainly throat size - and if used a lot costs a lot in blades - not...

    we are wrong

    Very neat! What a good idea. Much easier doing it at floor level or all the stuff would have had to be lifted by hand from ladders and/or scaffolding.

    Record No.52 1/2 B - Help Identifying

    Had a closer look in the light of day. It isn't a B it's an E - it was covered in dust! Sorry to be a party pooper! Happy to take photos if you want but I guess they are both commonplace. That's a 52 1/2 E and another one with a D. Both new 1980 ish

    Starting out with rough sawn

    Dunno band saw not good for a lot of ripping as they blunt quickly and cut less straight. TS vastly superior! If you have a bandsaw it helps with wider stuff if you start it off with deep kerfs in both edges from the TS. The bandsaw then just takes out the middle. If you haven't got a bandsaw a...

    Bringing goods from the EU

    OK he's avin a laff! :rolleyes: In the real world lying is generally regarded as a negative sort of thing, especially if it relates to and influences important issues. Would a diagram help? n.b. a "false positive" is a negative.

    Bringing goods from the EU

    In that it wasn't true. We are now less free. The most symbolic loss of freedom we've insanely inflicted upon ourselves is freedom of movement. The practical losses are being documented every day as exporters/importers rage against red tape and regulations, which membership of the EU freed us...

    Help Cleaning a Bandsaw Blade

    Me same but steel - usually a paint scraper. If you do it often it takes seconds and doesn't build up. Do it when it's still warm from use - it's softer. I wire brush the wheel sometimes too. Not too rough don't want to remove rubber.

    Bringing goods from the EU

    Americans are breathing sigh of relief and talking of the Trump 4yr "aberration" coming to an end. Lucky them ! We are stuck with our Farage/Johnson/brexit aberration for a long time to come

    Help Cleaning a Bandsaw Blade

    Do it while it's still warm after use. Switch it on and hold a scraper or other bit of steel, chisel etc, on the table, up to the flat of blade as near the teeth as you can. Do one side, then the other. A few bits remaining not scraped off near the teeth won't matter. Takes about 30 seconds...

    Record No.52 1/2 B - Help Identifying

    Tomorrow morning. My other vice is 52 1/2 D which I assume stands for "Dog" cos it's got a little raisable dog in a socket

    Flat head screw supplier - am i being daft?

    They are called slotted screws and you can get them all over the place. Pre-drill for cut nails if necessary. Pre-drilling is a good nail trick, even with panel pins if you are doing thin stuff where they must go in straight

    Help needed! Scaffold board table top, salvageable salvage?

    Pity really as you've made a nice job of it even though its only scaffold boards. Would have done better when dry! and without the breadboard ends - they help open up the boards as they shrink. Without them they still shrink but might not be so noticeable. Bread board ends are best reserved for...
