    Making an external door from MDF

    Hi all, this may well be a bad idea, which is why I wanted to float it here first. I'd like to replace my UPVC front door with a new one. I've looked at composite doors, but it's looking like nigh on a grand to replace the door, frame and side window panel. As an alternative, I'm considering...

    Another birch ply topic

    I get BB grade 18mm birch ply from Alsford Timber in West Sussex for about £75 a sheet (Inc vat) , which seems quite pricey to me. Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative supplier in this area?

    Prototype workbench build - WIP

    So finally I'm getting round to building my first workbench. I've decided to prototype it first, as I really don't know what sort of workbench I need or what configuration will work for me best. I also want to build one from decent wood in the future, so I'd rather build a prototype from cheap...

    Keyless chuck problems

    I've just purchased the 16mm keyless chuck 700405 and a B16 2MT arbor 700408 from axminster. Unless I'm being very stupid, the arbor doesn't fit in the chuck. Both the chuck and the arbor have B16 written on them, but the arbor won't sink below the shoulder line. Please could someone advise...

    FTAGH 32mm vac hose clips

    I have 5 hose clips to fit a 32mm hose for anyone who's interested. They allow you to run a power cable along the hose for those with festool tools or if you've done your own single power cable system. Similar to the image below, but in a rather fetching festool green color and with only one...

    Building a large Thien baffle - Dust collection

    As part of my workshop refurb, I needed to build a new Thien baffle. I'm installing 125mm ducting, and my 100mm Thien baffle would just choke the airflow too much. In addition, the container I was using was too small in terms of diameter - you really need a large diameter container in order to...

    63mm dust extraction from a chip extractor

    My current dust extraction setup looks like this: It consists of a 2hp extractor sitting on top of a thien baffle. It works just fine, however it's only connected to the tablesaw, so it's not under much pressure. I'm looking to plumb in proper piping and have it connected to multiple...
