Which is stronger - a 6inch x 3inch 'joist' or a lamination made from three 6inch x 1inch planks??? my problem (1 of them...) is my garage roof is sagging - the internal measurements are 3.7mtr wide, 5.5mtr long, the roof is 'supported' by three 6mtr...

    Free to a good home...

    1 NVR switch that would suit a someone building their own router table. It's the 'plug in' type so you can easily remove the router and use it elsewhere - It's of a similar design to this.. http://www.axminster.co.uk/product.asp? ... 73&recno=1 but it doesn't have the fold down cover as an...

    can you buy....

    ...simple polishing pads that'll fit on a delta sander? i was flicking through the axminster catalogue and couldn't see what i'd think was an obvious use for a small detail sander... or am i being stupid and would the action of a sander achieve nothing here?(and big sheet sanders come to think...

    I've been a bit careless.. i was cutting a worktop today for the inlaws but i didn't remove all the plastic sheeting that covered it (i thought i had) and underneath the cutter decided to wrap itself in polythene, whip the polythene out from under the jig and worktop, then it 'wound itself in'...

    Be Careful....

    Just a brief warning/reminder etc... I was turning a 10" bowl from She Oak last night, dovetail recessed and cutting the inside when it broke up on me and my left forearm, steadying the bowl gouge on the toolrest, took the impact. Off to the A + E dept. later as i think it could have chipped a...
