    Where has all the sand gone?

    I want to lay 1 large paving slab as a step into an outbuilding so I went to Wickes for a small bag of cement and a small bag of sharp sand and they didn't have either so I went to B&Q they had cement but no sharp sand.

    Resin filled table tops

    I have come across a guy on youtube who takes slabs of wood cut from the full length of tree trunks that have splits in them almost running the full length. He fill the splits with resin and makes table tops from them. They look amazing but my question is won't the wood move over time and crack...

I searched through what I call...

    I don't think I have ever seen this company ever mentioned on here before but I have to say that I wanted to buy an item that was available via a company that does get mentioned here but it was over £4 dearer plus postage I purchased it from Tyzack via their ebay shop and saved over £7 on an...

    Wildlife camera.

    Just before lockdown my wife who seems to think she is responsible for all wildlife saw traces of us having hedgehogs in the garden and asked me to make a house. I made the house out of offcuts from under the bench as I guess we all have and although she was pleased with it (that is the main...

    A question to DeWalt radial arm saw owners.

    I have a dw125 ras that I have owned from new and am very happy with. The only issue I have with it is that the rise and fall knob on the top has a lot of backlash in that if I for example raise the blade and then want to for example lower it by 1mm the knob goes 1/4 turn before the blade lowers...

    Did anybody go to makers central?

    I was tempted to go but taking into account the entry fee, car parking costs and the cost to get there I decided not to. Did I miss something special?

    Sabre saw and Swiss made blades. Glue gun and glue sticks. Fantastic value for money from personal experience.

    The quote button.

    Since the upgrade and big improvement to the forum the only thing I can't seem to work out how to do is quote a post in order to reply to that specific post. I look at the forum on my phone if that makes a difference.

    Time has come to unearth my scroll saw bench.

    It has been about 3 years since I have done anything with my scroll saws and today has been the day to unearth them from underneath a mountain of other tools and general items that get placed on any flat surface. My grandkids now seem to be more interested in something called pokeman, if any of...

    For the past few years my dust extraction from hand held power tools has been via an earlex vac that i think cost about £20 and has done sterling service. Last week Lidl had an offer on their Parkside shop vac with built in power take off and variable speed control and i decided to buy one and...
