    Festool TKS 80 or Mafell Erica 85 ?

    In what sense can it be leagues ahead of an Erica ! There’s only so much you can do with a sliding table good accurate fence and pull facility which both of these have … as mentioned I have both festool and mafell and in my experience mafell are some way ahead of festool in terms of build...

    Insulation thickness for walls?

    celotex ..Rock wool is a poor insulator and tends to slide if not fitted propearly in the walls ..you only do these jobs once so I always work on doing the best you can !. aluminium foil products are fine but need careful fitting to maximise efficiency we have done barn conversations using iso...

    New Router ?.

    Thanks how do you get on with the pistol grip on the 1400 and 1010 ...Mafell did the lo50 which I think they now make for feestool I checked it out then but could not decide due to the egonomics!

    Best 6" Random Orbital Sander or should I get a forced rotation (geared) Sander?

    If you will be using it for long periods and can justify the cost go for a Mafell almost vibration free and the cupex motor is super smooth the dust extraction using the correct product is also extremely good ... 3 models to choose from .

    Insulation thickness for walls?

    The first place to start is the roof Poly is pretty poor go with at least 100mm of celotex in the roof and if you need to cut down then 50mm on the walls and if you have a concrete floor perhaps 50mm there then cover with sterling board .. i would though start with the roof as thats where most...
