    UK & Ireland TIMBER YARDS - PLEASE Add Your Favourites

    Surrey Timbers is my local yard and they do offer online ordering - it doesn't include everything they stock, but even so. Just thought it worth a mention

    New table saw? Lumberjack TS1800

    I agree with that - as I said above the biggest problem is dust on top/over the saw itself, as opposed to underneath. As it stands I don't have a safe mechanism to try capture this dust so I'll be buying guard that allows me to connect dust collection overhead - I'm hoping that will at least...

    New table saw? Lumberjack TS1800

    Thanks for the suggestions - as it happens I have watched Dennis' video (he's great) and as a test I'd taped up most of the supplied (Ieaving a gap of maybe 2/3mm all along the blade) insert and it wasn't much better. In Dennis' case I believe the rest of his cabinet is fairly airtight which is...

    New table saw? Lumberjack TS1800

    By way of update on this table saw - after purchasing it I had to do some fiddling to ensure the blade and fence were aligned. Fence alignment was fine, but blade alignment was a bit fiddly - that said I haven't had to adjust the blade alignment again. I have had to adjust the fence, both times...

    eBay FFX has 15% off at the moment

    Thanks for the heads up - I just bought the Triton Surface Planer for £205 - about £25 less than their site (and competitors)! ...on the other hand I was going to hold off buying it for a while, so...

    Flattening with a hand plane - query

    Hi, Newbie question! I recently watched a video where Rob Cosman flattened a wide board using a #6 hand plane. He paused midway though and mentioned his #7 and #8 planes too (which I believe are longer). My question is around why he might have chosen the #6 over the other, longer, planes...

    Water Based Spray Paint

    Hi, I'm looking to try spray painting some shop cabinets I'm going to build - I figured these would be good to try it out on. I have a gravity fed gun & filter and a regular air compressor and am really just looking to try it out and learn what I can do with it. I've bought "Spray Finishing...

    That's interesting - I don't know enough about that side of things yet. Thanks

    New table saw? Lumberjack TS1800

    I'd need need to measure the table (which I can do tomorrow) but I'd guess it's 512 x 512 as I'm fairly certain it's square. But I'll follow up tomorrow with the actual measurement. The pressed steel is absolutely rock solid too - initially I was concerned about it but when I lifted them out of...

    New table saw? Lumberjack TS1800

    I thought it might be worth me updating this thread as I recently bought this table. I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I've only just finished setting it all up (ie blade and fence aligned etc). The blade seems to stay aligned if I raise and lower the blade so that's great. Everything...

    I've gone ahead and ordered the relevant bits, as well as the lubricating wax :-)

    New Table Saw - Protection?

    Thanks both, that's great! I like the resistor idea - very simple. How do you attach the resisters to the bed as a matter of interest?

    New Table Saw - Protection?

    Hi, I've just bought my first bit of "serious" kit - a new tablesaw. From what I've seen paste wax is generally the way to protect it but I've also seen a recommendation to apply thinned spar urethane once setup and every few weeks (followed by paste wax). Is this a good idea? If so what do...
