    Door Upgrade

    I agree with you on this framing concept and not drilling into the sandstone *the sandston may not be a very hard variety, nevertheless what is being proposed is not, in my view considerate treatment of the building or its neighbours. I also wonder whether you'll leave the doors open, forcing...

    Arc or Mig welding, very confusing!

    HI...some very good advice there... Circumspect of Chinese gear I nevertheless grabbed an 'electronic' helmet recently at Bunnings ...$49.00...interestingly the boiler maker who recently did some work for me had the same type of helmet...look a bit like a speedster helmet. One thing...may...

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    Oh dear......are you the person who protested someone else was ignorant a few comments back?... Perhaps you should think about being less 'in control' of intellectual stream and more about maturing in your own thinking. As a professional in OHSE my comment then and now is sensible as a'maybe'...

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    Hi..Utube also has some of the worst techniques and most outlandish claims for them in its money grubbing 'subscribe' features.. Better to learn from a professional.

    Olive & Pewter lidded box

    Hi wasn't the caution with Pewter its lead content? It was very easy to deform. Modern Pewter has gone away from using lead but if 'recycling' old pewter be aware of the possible lead effects.

    Chipped edges on new planes and do new planes need sharpening before use?

    The 'sharp at purchase idea seems good...but its possibly caution that prevents it. I have to sharpen all tools after purchase however as an OHSE 'type' I think that not having blades sharpened to 'really good edge' at the store may actually prevent some injuries when people thumb test the...

    Arc or Mig welding, very confusing!

    To give an idea, a boilermaker who recently did some work for me used and an ancient 180A gas-less MIG. You may be aware that boilermakers especially having been approved with X-Ray are the cream of welders.Getting the current spot-on is a great part of good welding however penetration and width...

    Wall mount 16amp 2P+E - with interlock switch?

    It's not correct to use 20 Amp outlets on a 16 Amp circuit. It stands to reason does it not?...Same issue as with the previous saw connection I an others examined. Your saw may need a motor start breaker or fuse. Your General Purpose outlets must have 30 mA RCD's. I am unsure of UK but here...

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    As you earlier asked about 'combo'.... Glossary :Combo..also known as RCDO is a combination overload breaker with integral RCD (Residual Current Device commonly known as a 'safety-switch'). The switched plug sockets on the circuit, or any circuit, are known as GPO's (general purpose...

    Enough clamps??

    Hi John...do you differentiate between cramps (not the human body type) and clamps? Those screw types were referred-to as 'cramps' when I was a lad. The ratchet types of the modern era were called clamps.

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    Hi...Yes it means something...good on you for acting sensibly. Show him my comments if you want. Ask him also to make sure it is a 'solid earth' to your saw and at your saw. You will get better longevity by permanent connection of the saw that drawing starting current well in excess of the...

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    To help you out a bit further on the selective advice you gave.so politely.... though I have already covered a lot of ground in setting the facts, there still seems to be uncertainties and pushback. It is not correct that tripping on leakage is faster than on overload, it depends on the...

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    You probably have testers for RCD as we do. Some are very simple, others a little more "complex"They will have variable leakage selections and give drop out time.

    Not all combos have that coding facility.

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    Ahhh Spectric ....wanted to leave it behind eh...Life!!...you can run but you can't hide!... I didn't introduce the issue but did seek to straighten it out. You raised some (UK?) electrical issues which I found interesting to pursue. Thanks for that. It was "once more unto the breach dear...

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    HI Nick in my response I explained a lot including the effect of accumulated leakage on RC guarded circuits. I mentioned also that some RCD's trip at lower than their rated leakage current. That's a possibility when another appliance added trips the 'combo' RCD/over-current circuit-breaker...

    HEEELLPP!! Bandsaw tripping breaker

    Hi Roy...a bit of a dissertation.... You wrote " in domestic installations is important where you rely on the Neutral for your means of earthing". Is this an English situation? If so I'm surprised. The concept of a neutral being used as an earth may be a misinterpretation of the UK PME/TNCS...
