    Filtration revisited

    Still can't get a hold of a 480mm filter to fit my dust extractor although 320mm seem readily available. In another thread, a member said he created a 'donut' to allow (I assumed) a larger filter to fit his extractor so I'm wondering what would be the implications of creating a "step-down donut"?

    What are these, please?

    Can anyone identify these bars please? Because they're pictured with Expamet packaging I have visited their site and gone through every listing I could find on their site and can't find anything even close.

    Fine Filter Cartridge For Dust Collectors 480mm

    I've been after one of the above to fit an Axminster dust extraactor. The Axi version has been out of stock for weeks, is still quoting 12 weeks for delivery but overnight has jumped from £153 to £199 (similar story with their AC118CI and the head alone from around £100 to £150!). Anyone know of...

    Leaky garage roof

    Recently moved to a property that has a sectional concrete garage that has a leaky roof. I can't see quite where it's coming in but during yesterday's rain I could see droplets running down the underside of the convulted roofing sheets (roof appears to slope from front of garage to back, roughly...

    Consumer Units For Workshop

    Would this one be adequate? I plan to have a 1.5kw dust extractor, servicing either a 1kw lathe, 550w bandsaw or 1400w router; the latter will also have a 1300w shopvac working in conjunction with the main DE. Lighting will come from two - possibly more - 48w 600mmx600mm LED panels and I almost...

    Withdrawn Record Power DML320 Lathe and Stand

    As I'm about to lose my workshop I'm having to find a new home for my lathe, a Record Power DML320. This is less than a year old (purchased September 2020) and has the Record Power leg stand. It comes with the drives, wrenches and knock-out bars supplied as new. As you will probably be aware...

    I have a 1hp motor 'salvaged' from a (not at all) old lathe (Record Power DML320) which I was hoping to use it in a shop made dust extractor. As the lathe itself plugged straight into a regular 3-pin socket, I fitted a 13a plug to test the motor. It runs but it does get hot very quickly. Quick...

    Combining tablesaw and router

    In the constant battle for space in a single garage workshop, I am contemplating combining my router table and table saw into one unit. I was thinking of replacing the current extrusions front and back of the table saw with 2020 Aluminium Profile, with a wing holding the router (Triton MOF001)...

    Airbrushing Dust

    Now I'm progressing to projects that involve hollowing out, I'm wondering if a blast from an airbrush would be capale of blowing out dust? I don't own a compressor and don't really have the space for a bulky one.

    Wind fall Wood

    We've had some strong winds round our way and I'm noticing a number of snapped-off boughs along the roadsides I travel along. Anyone know if there's any law against me collecting any of these?
