    My New Table Saw - a KING KC-10RC

    If you are going to replace the motor consider replacing the belt with a flexible link belt (see here - Link Belting for Power Transmission | Fenner Drives). I know that some have different opinions but I found it to be great at dampening vibrations and the saw runs quieter too. I coupled this...

    My New Table Saw - a KING KC-10RC

    Looks very similar to my table saw and a good bet that it was made by Mao Shan in Taiwan. I have upgraded mine very successfully and find that it does everything I could ever need. https://www.maoshan.com/products.php?class=1

    Router bits

    I never knew Infinity had a UK site! The only time I have purchased their bits has been when I am on a trip to the US. I purchased a flush-trim bit that has been fantastic.

    The living hell of dust extraction diameters

    If you can find someone with a 3D printer then you can design a custom adapter by going to this link: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3819146 And hitting the 'open in customizer' link on the right or even better, download the files and run customizer on your own PC...

    Sabre 350 Bandsaw - hope this helps someone

    I am sure that loads of people will have had the email - but Yandles has out sent the following: The next batch price is mad - increases are going to be a thing for a while it seems

    Where have all the bandsaws gone?

    My line of work (IT) is seeing massive shortages - up to 10 months in some cases. So not just bandsaws.....

    New compressor - need air hose recommendations

    I purchased one of these on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233450509816 Nicely made and very flexible rubber hose. The retractable mechanism makes it a pleasure to use and 20m is long enough to go down my drive and over the road...

    Parkside (lidl) hot glue gun

    I have to be honest and say that I can not remember, but I am almost sure that it was less than £15 Someone has them on Amazon for a bit over £18

    Parkside (lidl) hot glue gun

    Hard to be 100% certain - but that looks like the same gun just without the stand? £3.99 - well worth a try

    Parkside (lidl) hot glue gun

    I have the Lidl 'wireless' glue gun - I think the model number is PHP500. Works well enough and comes with interchangable nozzels and a stand which provides electrical connection to heat up. You can connect the cable directly into the gun itself if you need to glue large areas and have it...

    Your experience with either the Triton MOF001 or TRA001 router?

    I have a fairly old contractor-style table saw that came with a crude bracket system for mounting a router in the left-wing. Has worked perfectly with the Triton for the past three years. I had to drill my own access hole for the above table adjustment but apart from that, it was not too much...

    Laguna Fusion 3 buying advice

    I had seen this on Axminster and thought of a possible retrofit - but it seems only able to handle 1.5hp induction motors. https://www.axminstertools.com/kedu-kjd17b-nvr-switch-230v-1ph-102532

    Mitre gauges

    This might be worth watching I use the Incra V120 and have found it to be very accurate and well made. Not as pretty as some of the newer Bangood models though

    Rutlands Workbench castors - any good?

    Hoping someone can provide feedback on these: https://www.rutlands.com/sp+routing-router-tables-lifts-wheel-sets-workbench-and-machinery-castor-set-with-lift-rutlands+r9020 I am looking to put them onto a heavy workbench (150kg) and they seem to be fairly well made. Can anyone confirm?

    Great find for machinery lighting @ £6

    At my local B&Q yesterday I found this small battery-powered LED work light complete with a rotating magnetic stand. At just under £6 I thought it worth a try as a possible cheap light on my bandsaw. All I can say is WOW - fantastic for the price. The stand rotates 360 around the body with...

    Makita MT range info

    I have a red Makita finishing sander purchased back in 2013. Overall the build quality is quite good and it seems to be fairly bulletproof having worked without issue for all these years. I would guess the advantage might be in having spares and accessories available for a good while where some...

    Removing the fence is very easy - one turn of the locking handle and it slides out of its dovetails. I think that you are talking about 30 seconds work.
