    Scroll Chuck advice needed

    Hello, I have been getting by with a fairly small record chuck for about a year now, unfortunately the internal gears have worn out. It wasn't in the best condition when I got it but it was only £10 so has served me well. I had planned on upgrading and have some cole jaws that should fit a...

    Incorporating a bandsaw into a MFT style bench

    Loglap Summerhouse as a workshop

    I have recently moved to a mid terrace Malvern, Worcestershire. It's great but the current shed in the garden would have been ideal if not for it being placed on a loose pile of bricks without any maintenance for several years. It's not very stable and I don't think it would be worth trying to...

    Table Saw Smoking

    Hi, I'm very new to woodworking so I apologise if this is a stupid question. I have a Titan Tablesaw and have used it a few months now. Last week I was ripping some pine (around 50mmx50mm) down to 25x50mm pieces and I was...
