    Workshop in garden shed and noise

    My son is a professional drummer, and has a kit set up in his room at front of our house. The rules I told our neighbours we would stick to for practice are not an a Sunday, not before 10am or after 7pm and no longer than 1 hour at a time. Letting them know something similar for your tools might...

    Going around ever decreasing spirals until disappearing up.........

    Depending on overall size, I can do that for you at about 4mm thick mdf or ply. as it is such a worthy cause, Materials and post only. The bed of my laser is a bit over A4 to give an idea. All i need is the pattern sent to me as an SVG file.

    I'm late 50's and don't think I've seen one before!

    What’s this tool?

    Thank you all, now a bigger mystery. Why has my 83 year old, twice widowed mum got one in her junk drawer with old receipts, a cloth tape measure and an out of date by decades address book??

    Parkside Thread - (in)famous plasmer cutter

    Be aware, this isn't the same as the plasma cutter they had in stock only a few weeks ago, that one had a built in compressor, this one does not and you'll need a compressor to run it.

    Oak dining table finish

    without knowing what is on there already, i think you are a little stuck! Personally I'd sand it back and use osmo to re-coat. I don't think you'll regret it once it's done.

    Advice on routing letters

    Hi, sorry for the time lapse. The feeling is that to have the 4 words routed as templates would cost more than getting someone with a cnc to cut them directly into the scaffold boards for you as a one off. Being realistic, I'd need at least £4 a letter plus postage just to cover the material...

    Advice on routing letters

    My laser cutter doesn't have a bed long enough to do those as whole words, I'd be suggesting individual letters. You'd need only one capital E template for instance, plus a lower case 'e'. The 16 letter templates you would need to spell out those four words would be: E a c e i l n o p q r s t u...

    Advice on routing letters

    i have a laser cutter, and could make individual letter templates for you in your choice of font and size from 3mm plywood or mdf. How many different characters would you need, and we can work out a price?

    Advice on routing letters

    I looked at the Rutlands kits for the OP as well, but he states he wants to do 4" tall letters and I dont think the Rutlands jig is big enough? About a year ago on this forum I bought a Trend Routasketch https://www.tooled-up.com/artwork/prodpdf/trenpage_129.pdf and if you can get hold of one of...

    Table saw safety

    Truth is, I don’t know. I was cutting the mitres for a picture frame and using a jig, it happened in a micro second and I believe the blade was slowing to a stop. That’s all I remember.

    Table saw safety

    Warning, injury photo coming up. Ive been using table saws safely for years, and here was so lucky that I didn’t touch bone. This is after a hospital visit and 10 days healing time. This is current, I did it about 12 days ago.

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    I know we can all make tables, and I've made plenty, but this one I was especially pleased with. A client wanted this existing rectangular table plus the two rounded extra pieces from another oak table made into a large study table to an exact dimension. By exact, I mean that originally it...
