    Pink anti-theft tools

    I used to work for a carpenter who sprayed all of his tools with neon pink paint. I laughed when I started with him but he never had a tool nicked on site or borrowed when we wasn't looking because everyone knew whose tools they were!

    How to use push sticks to cut wood safely on a table saw.

    Sgian Do you mean the blue or black type medical gloves? That I can see working well and not being too much of a safety risk but always need to be careful. We had planned on picking up a Hammer K3 Winner a few years ago, business focus changed so we decided not to take the hit (£5500) then...

    How to use push sticks to cut wood safely on a table saw.

    Don't wear gloves when working with machinery in the shop. That is a sure fire way to lose a finger or hand in my opinion. " It’s more of a correlation, the Americans very rarely use push sticks – they use push blocks and similar " you can draw correlations from anything. The difficulty from...

    How to use push sticks to cut wood safely on a table saw.

    Ian, Im a little confused. Where in the post does it say that a specific push stick or block is responsible for an injury? I see it states 10 people a day, but where is the source for saying its a particular type of push stick/block or use? I have just had a quick google and there is an...

    How to use push sticks to cut wood safely on a table saw.

    Can someone explain the hate for crosscut sleds? I run a shop and we use the sled more than most things. Sheet materials are ripped down on the table saw. Crosscuts are made on the sled unless you count huge bits of timber like a 16' 8x4" The mitre saw is fine for most things but nothing beats...

    Newbie - Display cabinet plywood advice

    The 5 x 5 sheets are laminated with an internal glue, the 8 x 4s use an external rated glue, for those that are interested. The main issue with the cheaper grades of plywood are they have a tendency to have voids or glue spots on the inner layers which can cause issues when you come to finish...

    Getting MFT top made. 96mm vs 100mm & Material

    Wow Mike...check that frame out! Thats awesome! You should be able to get away with a 12.5mm deep recess. The board will be 11.7-12.4mm so that will allow for any issues and make shimming a little easier. I would keep with the 96mm spacing, if only as that seems to be the standard. As more...

    DIY Overhead crown guard with dust extraction.

    Mark - For sure, dont want to lose them lol. Eddy - Yeah I dont understand the price of them. I think it must be something to do with the insurance liability maybe? Good shout, it never even occurred to me to use nylon screws to be honest. Ill bare that in mind for the next build or see if I...

    DIY Overhead crown guard with dust extraction.

    Thanks Mark, I think you are right. We always used the riving knife but I think this will make work a lot safer, it only takes a millisecond to lose a finger!

    DIY Overhead crown guard with dust extraction.

    This is a project that I have needed to make but put off for around 18 months now. In our old workshop we had a huge gas furnace heater so never had an issue with opening the roller door when carrying out a lot of timber cutting. Now we rely on a wood stove the heat isn't as instant so we ended...

    3 Phase hard wiring....

    Hi, So I've got a Felder AF22 3 phase machine I picked up and looking to install it into the workshop. It's doesn't have a cable with it so I just assumed I could pick up some cable and a 5 pin female plug, wire it up and I'm good to go.... The breaker box in the workshop doesn't have a...
