    What Wood is This

    Jarrah i bought about 60 jarrah sleepers and then planed the front face. It looked just like that. Very dense lots of silica. Blunted my chainsaw every 3-4 cuts

    Drill Sharpening

    i can sharpen by hand but it take s me a while to get the feel back if i havent done it for a time. I also have a drill doctor, i find the drill doctor gives good consistent results but if i have lots to do by hand is quicker. I cant say i regret the drill doctor its reliable. Bigger drill bits...

    Kity 618 jammed

    Looks like a press fit, they may fit onto a spindle. I would suggest some plusgas or loosening agent and leave for a bit and then apply a bearing puller or some gentle force. Hard to tell if they are plastic or alloy. In my experience a hot airgun is usefull to just give enough heat to loosen...

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    The stringing is back dyed cherry/sycamore. I was trying to go for a more elegant trim than just rounding over

    Not very exciting but made this wall and shelf unit in english cherry and some maple mdf back panels. Took a while but i am fairly happy. The 41/2 metre worktop was challenging to make

    Britain's Best Woodworker

    i have been a woodworker a few years (20) and i think its easy to be cynical and mock these programs and the people on them. i must admit i found the pyjama guy a bit much. When it first started i was a bit cynical too. However my kids ,who despite my best efforts have never really gone woody...

    Recommend a 3D printer for c£400

    i bought a cheaper 3d prinder an anycubic model. It was fine when i started but i got really frustrated that 1/3 of prints had defects and i spent more time faffing with it than printing. I then spent £600 on a qidi xplus. Like night and day spent all my time printing stuff without any major...

    Buying my first plane.

    Planes come down a lot to what point you are using them, if you are doing a lot of wood prep then more planes are handy and bigger is also handy. If you are just fine tuning stuff after using machines then a number 4 or 3 may be ok. Everyone seems to have there own favorites and i think there...

    Sorby Pro-Edge

    i have one, i like the small footprint and in a small garage thats useful. Not sure fittinga lathe in is a sensible suggestion, and then how would you sharpen your turning chisels etc if you had a piece in the lathe? I use it a lot as a linisher and as a belt sander for pieces of metal and wood...

    Talking myself out of buying premium tools

    I too started with some pretty awful tools 25 years ago and have built up a fairly extensive collection of metal junk as wife calls it. I think having a bad tool for a while makes you appreciate good tools. Ie my first planes were some cheap ones from b and q and i could never undertand why they...

    New Inca Bandsaw

    Mitre saw

    i bought a cordless milwaukee, as i have to lug it up and down my garden for a big decking project. My garden is like a ski slope. I have been happy with it so far. Its nice not trailing a 30m extension cord through the bushes. Wish it wasnt so heavy mind you still. Not sure i will be keeping...

    Stud opening size for fire doors and lining

    yes my apologies, the door rating is linked to its testing and an fd 60 will not be the same as a fd30. However its end rating in us will be determined by its frame seal hinges etc. So plonking a fd60 door into a frame with the wrong hinges, rebate and seals etc will not give a better fire...

    Record/Stanley Interchangeability

    I have seen planes with undersized frogs in them, suggesting that people have used 4's in 4 1/2 i am not sure how they have done that but it seemed to work for them... i suggest at times we over worry. I have seen some very well worn welded up planes suggesting that we worry a bit too much about...
