    Is a double bevel mitre saw worth the extra

    There's a pretty cheap double bevel 305mm SIP mitre saw, perhaps too cheap?

    Is a double bevel mitre saw worth the extra

    I have the baby Evolution mitre saw and have enjoyed using it. I have cut metal and swapping the blade to a diamond one cut bricks too. It's so cheap and light it is ideal to move around. For my carpentry projects I'd like something with more capacity. I have been impressed with the cut quality...

    Is a double bevel mitre saw worth the extra

    I'll definitely get a compound one that can rotate at least horizontally +/- 45 degrees and also vertical+45 degrees, but unsure if -45 is needed given the ease of moving the work piece to the other side. I guess it's when you have a piece that can't get flipped over or around that it comes in...

    Is a double bevel mitre saw worth the extra

    I'm tempted by the 255mm mitre saws by Evolution and the double bevel one costs about 35% extra. Is it worth the extra given can't you just turn your work piece around or over to get the mitre the other way? Also, I was thinking that the vertical position would be better defined in a single...

    Garage Doors (insulated)

    I was thinking I could set up my tracksaw to cut to around 1-2mm depth and make the grooves that way. It's a bit high stakes as I'd need to make 11 grooves per 8x4 so little room for error. I can't weld and don't know where I could get a reasonably priced steel door carcass to work on. I was...

    Garage Doors (insulated)

    Hi everyone, excited to join. I'm not very experienced, but have enough tools to get myself into trouble. I want to make some garage doors for the garage workshop I am building to take my woodworking further. I want them to be insulated and look traditional (garage workshop will be timber clad...
