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

    Whose to say I wasn't taking the pissss out of the comment as well?

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

    Ah, the old 'but what about men' retort to anecdotes of misogyny.

    anyone got 13 grand for a turntable?

    Totally agree with this advice. You could try contacting some Universities and offer your space as a real world experiment. I've seen people do this in the past with great results. Maybe a little different these days as academia is too keen on invoicing collaborations but worth a punt.

    anyone got 13 grand for a turntable?

    Not sure I understand this statement? Do you mean demonstrating an analogue audio playback on Youtube? But how far do you want to take that logic? £13k is nothing in the world of audiophile, if the video was about a £26k turntable would people suggest a Garrard 301 is a better choice because...

    Enjoyed that. I wonder who much he actually sell the plinths for?

    LED lighting for workshop

    For my own install on the first building I'm running three lines of three 4ft units so nine altogether which is probably overkill for an 8' x 16' space. I've upped the intended number over the last few days purely to avoid the issues you mention.

    For consideration if building new workshop

    I've fitted UFH to the ground floor of my own home and as we are quite rural the boiler runs of LPG however I also have another space where I have fitted electrical UFH and the cost efficiencies of that don't stack up to that of the LPG which is a lot more cost effective. From a heating...

    For consideration if building new workshop

    It tends to be favoured for small areas or where water based PEX systems are not viable but I would have thought electrical UFH would be too power hungry for the large expanse of a workshop slab. That said, like Cabinetman I'm also willing to be converted on the idea if there is something I'm...

    LED lighting for workshop

    Too update, I've ordered a batch of LED glass tubed 6500K with a CRI of 80-89 (18W / 1800 lumens). I couldn't really find anything higher in CRI so went with the 80> for now. I am doing some product and product development photography but already have dedicated lights for this so the CRI number...

    LED lighting for workshop

    Most UK resellers of tubes designate 5000K to 6500K as Daylight hence why most people on here use that term. We are just using the industry standards. People are referring to the Kelvin value of the tubes, i.e. 6500K, not lumens. Kelvin is the temperature of the light output whereas lumens is...

    Cost of Birch Ply

    Prices are not going to get sensible for a while and unlikely to go back to previous levels.

    Thanks for all the responses, it is all appreciated. I will push the button on some 6500k tubes and see how it goes. I'll feedback myself when in situ. Cheers.

    LED lighting for workshop

    I can kind of see where you are coming from but the general consensus seems to be 6500k which is where I'll probably end up with based on the feedback so far. I don't tend to work late and do and will have a fair amount of natural light coming is as well so shouldn't be an issue too much.

    That makes sense and I should have realised what you meant at the time (now thinking about it).

    LED lighting for workshop

    I would have thought the blue element of 6500k would affect colour rendition, which is one of my concerns. I appreciate the Colour Rendering Index impacts that as well but I'm surprised to hear 6500k is better than lower down the scale. Good to know.

    Another vote for the 6500k range then, thanks for that.

    LED lighting for workshop

    I have the housings / fittings already. Not sure what you mean by more than just an LED tube? How else would you install T8 tubes for lighting? Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the input but I'm confused as to the suggestion of tubes only???

    LED lighting for workshop

    Thanks for that info. I've read in a few places that 5000k is optimal for woodworking but not actual found anyone who has reported that this works in practice. I'm erring towards the 6500k like yourself but a little concerned about this being at the far end of the blue spectrum. Can I ask if you...

    table saw with 210mm blade?

    Have a look at the CMT range of blades, they are readily available and do a good range of options in the 210mm x 30 blades. I've had good experience with Trend as as well.

    Project build:-Planning permission granted, now for building regs.

    This is also amplified as being relevant if the building is over the 30m2 and not primarily built from non-combustible materials. Building regs obviously covers more than insulation such as damp proofing, building fabric stability, ventilation, heating, fire protection and points of escape...
