    Oak Saw Cabinet / Saw Till

    Having amassed a fair few hand saws of various types and sizes during the past year or two, I thought it about time I made a storage solution of some sort for them, preferably wall-mounted to keep them tidy and out of the way. I spent several weeks researching a few different possibilities and...

    Basic Joint or Fixing Question

    I have to attach a cut-off piece of the square-ish section timber on the right of the photo below to the centre of the uppermost face of the board on the left, for a saw cabinet. It will not extend to the ends of the board, as the board ends are forming a lap dovetail with the sides of the piece...

    Where would I go to get this job done...

    Rather a strange question but I'm needing a bit of advice. I have a large cast iron wheel of around 800mm diameter (yes, 80cm) in which I need putting a plain central hole of 23.5 or perhaps 24mm diameter for an axle (and it needs to be exactly central), plus two tapped M10 10mm holes at 12.00...

    Santa's Sleigh On Time...

    Made me chuckle, someone somewhere at Network Rail has a sense of humour:

    The MkII Paul Sellers Workbench Build

    With perfect timing for my re-entry into learning woodworking as a complete beginner, I saw a few weeks back that Paul Sellers was releasing a new series on his Woodworking Masterclasses website, and Youtube, free of charge, showing how to build a revised version of his workbench, which features...

    SOLD: Jet 1220VS Lathe and Bed Extension

    I bought this over a year ago and it has not seen any use by me as I've been having to allocate time elsewhere (hence my lengthy absence from this forum too) - so I've decided the best thing is to sell it on and hope that someone else can put it to good use - I'm sure eventually I'll have time...

    Record Power Sabre 350 bandsaw

    Hi all, Been a long while since I last posted here, but finally getting back into woodworking again after several months off having to do other things. I'm looking to get myself a bandsaw, and within my budget (up to c. 1000 pounds) it seems that the Record BS400 is my best bet (open to...

    Saw tooth bit set worth buying?

    Leaving aside opinions about Rutlands themselves, are these worth buying or steer clear? http://www.rutlands.co.uk/sp+premium-sa ... -16+DK2074 I could do with a few of these cutters but I don't like chucking money away either, so happy to go with better quality if these are a bit dubious...

    Worcestershire Wooden Workshop...

    ... with a wabble of wowdy webels in a hutch outside. I've been meaning to start this thread for quite a while, and kept putting it off, so anyway, here goes. Not long moved into this house, but other than a double detached garage there were no outbuildings or sheds of any sort, and as the...

    Rutlands 'Black Friday' Sale

    Seems like it's becoming a rather long Friday these days, and why we have it in the UK goodness knows, but anyway, Rutlands is having a 'first come first served' sale: http://www.rutlands.co.uk/pp+black-friday+BLACK?promo=black_friday Includes offers such as a Solid Brass Wheel Marking Gauge...

    Stanley 50 paperweight or heavyweight?

    Got offered this yesterday at my local woodturning club for £15, seemed like an interesting thing even if it was all just a messed up heap in the cardboard box, but I spent a bit of time today sorting through, digging all the cutters out and seeing what was there or not. Looks to me as if by...

    Saw Handle Refurb

    Nothing particularly out of the ordinary here, but the first time I've deliberately bought an old hand saw with a view to giving it a bit of a makeover, and I am quite pleased with the result, certainly compared to the initial condition anyway. I used only elbow grease and hand tools, no...

    For woodturning supplies in Worcestershire

    For anyone who may be interested, and who lives in the Kidderminster/Stourport area or nearby, you may well recall that Paskins in Kidderminster closed earlier this year with the sad loss of the in-house woodturning supplies. Well, a replacement has now arrived, set up by, as far as I can tell...

    Lining inside new shed workshop

    So, I am at the stage of insulating and lining the inside of my new woodworking shed and wondered if I could get some opinion particularly on thickness of wall lining to use. I plan to place breathable 'paper' membrane flat across all the studwork (shiplap clad on outside), then attach 2 x 2...
