    SIP Planer Thicknessers

    I have a SIP 10X8. It is a good machine the only slight niggle I have with it is changing over to thicknessing, it can be a bit fiddly getting the shaving collecting chute in the right spot. The machine won't run until it is. :mrgreen: Willy.

    Which air compressor and nailer?

    If it is just for DIY nailing then the cheap machines will work just fine. The down side is,they are all noisy. Why not get a larger machine that you may find useful at a future date for other air tools. Mount it on a trolly and you can move it out of your way as needed. Willy.

    `crazy or what

    I don't know about the Olympics, it appears to be a London thing. I would suspect that it will be very lucky if it only winds up with a few million of debts but other wasted money like the fireworks could better be used on things like road repairs or to get a hospital ward out of moth balls etc.

    `crazy or what

    I read in the paper that we are having to tighten our belts a little more because the government are unable to make ends meet. On the same page they tell us that TWO MILLION QUID was spent of fireworks to welcome in the new year. I know on the scale of things it is not a lot but this money I am...
