    DIY Carbide - round or square bar?

    Seen a few vids recently on making your own carbide tools and as i don't have any and could use a real pointy one for a couple projects, thought id give it a whirl. So my question is, round or square bar? I have seen videos using both, and both seem available commercially, though the home made...

    Wanted Planer/Thicknesser wanted

    Just moved units and upgrading a few things - most needed is a decent planer thicknesser, ideally 240v and 300 wide. Tersa or spiral block preferred. Decent budget for the right machine. Long shot but just missed a couple of online sales so thought I'd cast the net, thanks!

    Motor switch misbehaving

    A little while ago my TS stopped turning on, i looked everywhere for why that might be and eventually discovered a break in the power cable at a certain point, so the power is back. However in my investigations i took apart the switch, which I have apparently put back together wrong as it is...

    More motor trouble

    Sorry. my pillar drill keeps sending me back needing help... Replaced my 3ph motor for an appropriate 240. All well, used it for an hour or so almost non stop the other day. Today, i pressed the on button, and there was a bright blue spark, and no further movement. The engine hums if i press...

    Pillar drill motor change - too much power?!

    My old meddings' 3 phase motor decided to stop getting along with the cheapo chinese inverter that had served it pretty well for a few years. Rather than blow loads of cash on a better inverter seems to be sensible to just get a 240v replacement and do away with the faff the inverter brings...

    Porch beam replacement - any thoughts?

    How do all, I am to be replacing a beam in a small porch that has more or less completely rotted away. On inspection, it seems to be the only part of the porch to have suffered, though who knows what can of worms removing it will uncover. Ill support the two sides of the porch, and was going...

    Worm drive press

    I have had an idea :idea: Whether or not its a good one im not sure! Inspired by the fact thats its hedgerow season and theres much fermentation to be done, and the fact ive been playing with various three phase things and VFD inverters, and this thing i sawand loved the simplicity of, a few...

    resawing parquet tiles

    sorry, boring quick question, got about 14 sq metres of parquet to put down for a project where i need to lose as much weight as possible... the tiles are currently 15mm, if i could get away with resawing off the back 5mm it will obviously reduce the total weight by a third and probably take...

    Im just putting together a waney edge oak slab table for some clients. The legs are designed to be simple and linear to contrast the table, wide uprights with a rail at the top and another few inches up from the floor. I am wondering whether I can get away with making it so simple that the two...

    Meddings pillar drill issues...

    Last week my floor standing meddings M2 rather suddenly (after cutting quite a few 100mm holes to be fair) developed a lot of play in the spindle, about a 1/5th of a turn. In a bid to find the problem i have wrestled all the parts from the front belt wheel downwards out and apart, and found a...

    branded vs diy router plane vs old womans tooth

    I dont have any of the above, but there have been an increasing number of occasions where I would have liked something that performs that task. I cant decide whether spending 30 quid on some new cutters and making my own is worth it... there are some good tutorials about but im not totally...
