    Dust Filter?

    I'm debating whether to buy a dust filter (e.g. Microclene, Record Power AC400, or similar) but suffering from a lack of understanding of the benefits... Are they really a good thing? The filter performance (Record AC400 "down to 1 micron") suggests they simply allow the really harmful dust...

    Workbench and Router Table

    In my ongoing quest to get my workshop sorted I'm turning my attention to workbenches. I discarded my heavy workbench with built in vice etc as it did not fit into my plans to make the shop equipment as mobile as possible. I've been looking at multi-function tables; considering the likes of the...

    3D(?) Drill Bits?

    More years ago than I care to remember, you couldn't move for adverts for (what I think was called) 3D drill bits; capable of boring larges holes in multiple directions (i.e a curved hole). I thought it was novel at the time but I had no need for it. Now I do have a need but they do not seem to...

    FOR SALE: Bosch GTA6000 Mitre Saw Stand

    I believe this is a universal stand. The attached pictures show the brackets for attaching a mitre saw - the bolts can be slid for and aft and the gap between the brackets adjusts too. £40 collected from Bromley, Kent. Photos here

    Base for Record Power DX5000 Available

    I've just converted my Record Power DX5000 extractor to a DX4000; changing the base from a bag to a drum. I therefore have a DX5000 base available if anyone is interested (i.e. to convert a DX4000 to the larger capacity wall hanging DX5000). The motor just sits on top. PM me.

    Sticky Measure on Mitre Fence

    Hi, Just bought http://www.axminster.co.uk/ujk-technology-precision-mitre-gauge-fence-501281 and it comes with a sticky ruler tape. The instructions show it being stuck to the front of the fence however I fail to understand how that can be useful given the fence is movable and therefore the...

    Having a clear out... Circular saw vs Rail Saw

    Hi, I'm having a clear out and wondering why I'm keeping by Makita 5703 circular saw when I have a DeWalt rail saw... I kept hold of the Makita after getting the DeWalt thinking there may be circumstances where I'd need it but, erm, in several years those circumstances have never materialised...

    Countersink / counterbore and clearance hole all in one go?

    Hi, I'm struggling to find something I can't believe it is not more readily available... I frequently have cause to drill a clearance hole and countersink / counterbore. Most often for 8 guage screws - my "go to" for fixing most things... I would like a single drill bit to complete both in one...

    Recommended Plane for Door Fitting?

    Hi all, For fitting/trimming smaller (inset) cabinet doors I've always muddled through with a block plane. However, I feel I need something more for larger doors (c. 1.5 to 2m). I get the doors to fit in the hole using a rail saw but when it comes to getting all the gaps consistent and true...

    MDF Door Panels - Glue or not?

    I'm making some panelled doors using 6mm MDF for the panels (rebated in grooves in Poplar). In the past I've not glued the panels but have experienced some minor movement in the panel which has affected the paint. I'm wondering with this set of doors whether I should glue the panels? Grateful...

    Using Pocket Holes for Panelled Doors?

    I'm making some Shaker style doors - each door has two panels. Normally I use biscuit joints, glue, and clamp. However, I'm wondering whether there is any reason not to use Pocket Holes? The doors will be painted so I can plug the holes and paint over. One one hand there seems no reason not to...
