    Makita or Dewalt

    I need an impact wrench so was going to just get the Ryobi one to go with my set but its expensive and my one series batteries are way past their best. Makita do one, think its a TW100d but at around £150 with two batteries I thought I'd get the 10.8v drill driver combo set with two bats for...

    Fuse problem

    I've been restoring an old radio and in testing the voltage of an internal bulb I appear to have blown the fuse. Not a problem you might think but it's a 20mm by 5mm (standard) but its only 35mA and I can't find that size anywhere. Any ideas?

    Question for a sparky

    So yesterday after running for about 10 minutes there was an almightily flash and a bang from my extractor tripping the MCB. After resetting, one of the two motors is now not running. On dismantling I found that the capacitor rather than the motor was to blame having exploded in the upper...

    Screen resolution help

    Monitor Help

    I've bought a new monitor for a relatively only base unit. It's an LG M2380, a 23inch wide screen tv/monitor. The problem in that the picture is terrible on the computer. It's really blurred. I've installed the correct driver and googled for help which reckoned that I should be selecting a...

    Found a bargain

    If any one wants a bargain compressor there's one on the model engineers web site here. Its a Bambi so is a silent one like the one I have. They cost a fortune but the guys asking for only £120. If I didn't have one already I'd have his hand off.

    Question for 16-32 owners

    I've finally bought one of these after talking about it for 18 months. It's used but in great condition. It came with a 40 grit loading on it which while removing material quickly is a little aggressive for my oak stock. What grit paper do other owners recommend?

    Dear all, this year I'm taking part in Movember which for those that don't know is an annual charity event for prostate cancer. Having lost my grandfather a few year ago to the very same condition this is a cause I can directly relate to. Why Movember? Well a Mo is short for moustache and the...

    Shelf pins/pegs

    Hi all, I'm in the middle of a book case project and need some shelf pins. There are lots around but my sister kitchen has pins that are chrome/chrome effect metal pins that fit into a metal sleeve in the carcass. I like this feature as the veneered mdf would be much less likely to get chipped...

    Bugg-er! Insect hole in resawn Oak.

    I was resawing some oak today and I didn't notice this hole till I was pretty much finished the cut. Here's a finger to give you an idea of size. Initially I though it must be a nail hole from something pinned to the tree but when I opered the boards I found this. This bug is very...

    Garage conversion

    So it's starting to get colder already up in Scotland and the garage it unusably cold in the winter. It's been exclusively been used as a workshop for 5 years now so I think it's time to bite the bullet and convert it properly but how? It's a single walled brick double garage attached to the...

    Questions on general finishes finishes.

    Having used Osmo pretty much exclusively for two years now I have a project that really needs something that offers a bit more protection. Arm a Seal is the way I want to go but I have a few questions. Firstly I'd like to apply a sanding sealer first mainly as this will show up any areas I...
