    I'm looking to make a workable to square the ends of 2.4m wardrobes. I thought the parf guide system and some dogs would be just the thing. anyway I started to try and research this but noone seemed to have made a large cutting table. also the amount of twaddle(guff) waffle about using them...

    I've had(about 12 months) and rebuilt a multico and put whitehill combi blocks on. it really is a outstanding machine. I've made over 20 doors, Gates, windows etc. first off I don't tend to do a 4 inch tenon in one go as it seems excessive. can I? cutting past the halfway point feels...wrong...

    shadow line on bosch mitre saw

    I brought one of these after it was mentioned on this forum. works perfectly. fits perfectly. its an improvement because its "everrite" ie it can't be off. I found it easy to split a pencil line! the original laser was a sturdy item by comparison but not as good. a little pricey but I recall the...

I used an old makita 235mm saw for the...

    advice on tools for timber framing.

    I've got several smallish oak frame jobs coming up and I'm wondering how best to cut the m and t's. I could try to hire a makita chain morticer if it would speed stuff up a bit. we do have a big bandsaw but would need to buy a roller stand. we have a chainsaw. I could buy other stuff if it...
