    Am I the only person depressed by the number of comments with gender or racial stereotypes in them?

    Not disagreeing with you, just mention that people of my grandparents generation, Born at the end of the 1800s certainly didn’t stop and think about the feelings of the people they were talking to, I think if you went back to those times you would be shocked, people said what they thought...

    Nova Viking Drillpress - any experiences?

    Whilst not being a total dinosaur I have experienced a enough of life to believe my comments to be fair, take for example my big dust extractor press the button it starts, press the other one and it stops. My fine particle extractor has three speeds and you can set it to run for different...

    Does a shelf have…

    Well now you’re contradicting yourself, if you have a look at your last two posts you didn’t mention length. I think the most important thing is that nobody gets confused and if you look at my post (number two )there is no ambiguity.

    Redecorating and radiators

    I’m sorry I can’t remember the details, my son was showing me a new sort of valve fitted to his radiators so that you don’t need to drain them down to remove them, might be worth having them fitted when you get the plumber to remove them this time. Ian

    Does a shelf have…

    Width and depth? It doesn’t work with beds, width maybe but depth? People will think you’re talking about how soft it is. You only ever refer to a bed as how long it is.

    Nova Viking Drillpress - any experiences?

    My instinct is that it will be fine while it all works, as soon as the electronics start going wrong it will be a nightmare, I hope I’m wrong and that it’s a wonderful machine – just seems to have a lot relying on electronics . Not sure I would like the depth stop which works by turning the...

    Tambour cabinet

    I don’t want to be thought of as P..... in the soup, but have you considered how much force you’re going to need to push 1000 mm of wood around a groove like that? I’m glad it’s not 1600 or I think you would’ve really had a problem. Ian

    Tool identification.

    I was in a guys workshop the other day, he makes doors and windows, some of them on an industrial scale and there were at least a dozen huge long sash cramps like this hung up on his wall so yes they are available and they are in use. And just in case anybody hasn’t twigged, you can’t do it...

    Does a shelf have…

    I would suggest length and depth, as in how long is that shelf, can only apply to one of its dimensions and how deep is that shelf again can only apply to one dimension. And I would hope that how thick is that shelf is self-explanatory. Ian
