    Great British Woodshop - What do you think now?

    Dewey, brilliant idea and yes restrict it to B&Q/Screwfix or any of the Shed!! available tools. Only those really interested in woodworking will have heard of Axminster. H&L should have a dedicated woodworking channel with no fishing or house hunting. I think we should petition H&l for a good...

    Forum Users Bandsaws

    I have the EB BAS 250G and it basically does what it says on the tin. 1st thing is throw away the blade that comes with it. I found that once you start to learn how to set it up its starts to perform better. As I am fairly new to woodworking I am still abit impatient over setting up tool and i...

    OK forget about Tormek etc. I have used the scarey sharp method on a 20 quid Stanley from B&Q and a 6quid out of the local cheapie shop. Must say the 6 quid one works better than the Stanley but thats besides the point. What are your methods for sharpening plane and chisel blades. I'm still...

    Hand Plane vs Electric <grin>

    Well if what most people say is true I think a LieNielsen will win hands down every time. Don't think I'll ever know I can only dream of a LieNielsen. I would probably only wreck it anyway. :lol: :lol:

I got mine with a 1 year guantee and it was left in for service just before the year was up and it was almost fully rebuilt for me. The guy in the service centre said it did not really need...

    Mike this may be of no help as I am in N.Ireland but I was quoted by a company called James McGregor @ http://www.hardwoodni.com at a price of £18+vat per cubic foot. I would say you could probably get it cheaper on the mainland as we get ripped off over here. Jeff
