    kapex ks120

    Had one for about a year now. Very impressive bit of kit. Accurate, very clean cut edge, good extraction. I got it when Axminster first started discounting Festool prices and I had a 10% discount voucher as well so the price was down well below £900 inc VAT.

    Filled up with diesel today

    If I want to know what the IPCC are saying, I can read their web site. Why would I waste money on magazines? I find it rather sad that you have to rely on journalists to tell you what to think. Are you incapable of forming your own opinions?

    Filled up with diesel today

    Both these periodicals simply trot out, unquestioningly, the latest IPCC propaganda. What's the point of reading that discredited nonsense?

    Filled up with diesel today

    "a large world team of experts in the field" - with a huge vested interested in the answer being what they say it is, or claim to be 95% sure it is!

    More half truth and obfuscation from the IPCC. Hardly news!!

    Filled up with diesel today

    So if the oil and gas is not going to run out, and man made climate change is discredited, what's the problem?

    Filled up with diesel today

    The last time I saw any figures they showed that only about 10% of the revenue raised from motorists was spent on the road network.

    Digging Bar Tips

    +1 for this. I've been using mine to help dig concrete fence post holes. Very useful. Useful for breaking up solidified bags of cement left by builders!!

    TR6 dashboard finish

    I've never done a complete dashboard but I have done the ski slope, the bit the gear stick sticks out of, on a Jag XJS. On this the varnish was cracked and some small areas of the veneer had peeled off. I tried sticking it all back together, sanding and re-finishing, but it looked terrible...

    Downloading organising and reading pdfs on an Android tablet

    I use a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 android tablet. I don't particularly like the Android version of Firefox, but that's just a personal preference. I use Boat Browser and it seems to download pdf files OK. To view them I use Kingsoft Office free download which, again, has workrd fine on all the files...

    Biscuit Jointers

    I had a De Walt for many years until I switched to Dominos. I always found it very accurate and reliable, did everything I wanted to do! Good luck,

    Flat fronted cabinet doors

    My kitchen's maple rather than painted, but the requirements were the same, flat panel with a rounded edge I used 18mm maple veneered MR MDF for the panel and edged it with 20mm solid maple, mitred at the corners, and finished with a thumb molding. I would have liked to have solid wood doors...

    APTC AW106PT2 problem?

    That's a good idea! Problem with mine tho was that the chain was too tight even without the tensioner. I've been running for about 6 months without the tensioner and that helped but there was still a bit of a problem.

    APTC AW106PT2 problem?

    I did a bit more work on my 106 today to try to further improve the drive roller situation. Although I previously said that removing the chain tensioner had fixed the problem, there was still a nagging doubt that the chain tension was too high, and that it varied at different parts of each rev...
