    Wadkin RU lathe restoration

    I know the feeling. I'm doing the same. Not interested in full time production anymore. Just enjoy using the machines keeping them alive. Tony

    wadkin PK restoration

    That hand screw Knob is paramount. You can't mistake a Wadkin Spindle Moulder split fence. Brilliant use as a substitute rip fence. Tony

    Mystery - Bench top Table Saw parts

    It is an aftermarket auxiliary fence, in layman's terms. If your sticking veneers on both sides of a panel they could be overhanging the board edges, bigger in size than the board or sometimes called the core as it's in the centre. If you lift that auxiliary fence up so the veneer underneath the...

    SCM Super Router Refurbishment

    That's a nice small one is it a pneumatic rise and fall head, I can't see a foot pedal? These are fantastic machines, underestimated nowadays but once one of the main machines in the cabinet and aircraft industries. It looks in really good condition. This is what I use, I fabricated the...

    Advice on table saw that is "quietish"

    You could buy a quiet saw but the blade might scream its head off. Check on quiet running blades as well.

    What wood

    I'll throw a spanner in the works. It could be African Mahogany or Luan, these are lighter in their natural colour. Both have been used to imitate/substitute the quality South American Mahogany's in the past but are a lot less expensive to buy. They are not as durable outside as the former. I'd...

    Hello from Plymouth

    Hi drobinson87, That planer thicknesser sounds cheap, If it's ok I'd snap it up it will save you hours of sanding. I've used this Makita sander for decades it doesn't rock or tip. I had a monster Elu before it was a nightmare to use on veneers so got shot. Pic of Makita sander, it's an old one...

    Thinking of new Disc Sander

    That Record Power DS300 will be a super machine, especially with a 1 HP motor. I've had a home made 12" disc sander, Picador aluminium disc and a 1/4 HP ex washing machine number for about 46 years. Great but you have to allow it to cut slowly, The 1HP motor will eat the wood alive. This is the...

    Hello, from the Fens

    Hi. You've taken up some good subjects on the CNC side. I haven't got any lol, still old school.

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    Hi everyone. This was the last item I made, just to try out the table saw finger joint jig I made before it. The timber is from an old Pine wardrobe shelf panel.

    Wadkin MD morticer restoration

    Brilliant job. These old machines are great when the come out of small independent workshops because usually all the bits are still intact, the accessories are with them and they haven't been abused by the gorillas. It looks superb as it is, unmolested. Are you going to completely strip and...

    Heating a workshop

    Your exactly spot on Ian. You don't really notice the electric it uses either as it's not on full trying to catch up heating a cold space every working day etc.

    Harrison L5 Metalworking Lathe (1949) Teardown & Overhaul

    I have some videos using the Harrison 140 on YT under the channel name EYUP TONY. They probably standardised the Graduate's spindle nose for quickness in productions as the screw cutting machines would be already set up for the L5's. I have recently acquired a Harrison Jubilee wood lathe to...

    Heating a workshop

    It's only safe if you watch where the dust or shavings land and settle, just like a wood burning stove. I've used a propane space heater before off and on for instant heat you just have to make sure the area around it is clear and also where it's pointing. When you say there's not a lot of heat...

    Harrison L5 Metalworking Lathe (1949) Teardown & Overhaul

    Great job on the overhaul, very thorough. That gear repair is superb. They are great lathes, I fitted a faster 2HP single phase motor to mine as well. It was my first lathe and was also dated 1949 I checked it with Harrisons in about 1985 with the serial number after I bought it when I rang them...
