    Kity 439 in feed problems

    Ever since I’ve owned this Kity 439 the feed into the thicknesser has always been a bit hit and miss and the final straw was when it ruined a piece I’d prepared for a table I’m making. It’s time to do something about it. I stripped the machine and found each of the rollers had collapsed bushes...

    Help - advice fitting an inset cabinet door

    Just as an update I thought I share the solution I chose. I went for Custards advice and added a piece to the inside of the stile with the issue (sorry dzj, I like the idea of a beading just didn't want to have to bead the whole cabinet). In the true tradition of being a novice, I obviously made...

    Help - advice fitting an inset cabinet door

    Thanks again Custard, appreciate the detailed response. Luckily, the top apature to the piece isn't for draws, it's an opening where a DVD player and Sky box sit so will remain open. I should have taken and posted a picture, it would have explained the cabinet better. I'm not sure I'm...

    Help - advice fitting an inset cabinet door

    Thanks for coming back to me Custard... I've just run a square around the whole frame and it would appear that the right side stile isn't square with the bottom and middle rail. The centre stile is square to both rails. That result actually makes sense given that left door fits square with no...

    Cavity Insulation

    The bonding agent bonded them enough to hold them together, not really a solid mass so to speak. No bonding agent, the beads come out of every small hole around the house, covering gardens and filling up internal cupboards etc forever and a day. It looked similar to snow but not as much fun.

    Help - advice fitting an inset cabinet door

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can give me advice/direction in fitting an inset cabinet door into a face-framed cupboard I've built that has a bit of an issue. In my defense it's the first real bit of furniture making I've attempted and apart from this issue, it seemed to be going fairly well. Now...

    Kitchen worktops

    If it was me, I'd fit the worktops as per the bottom picture because trying to fit the middle worktop (blue) in the top picture, it would need to be cut absolutely perfect otherwise you'd end up with a gap where it butts up against either of the two red ones. Also, the walls which the red...

    When will this pallet furniture trend end?

    I confess, I use pallet wood to make things, am I a bad person? :-)....... Mainly bits and pieces for, and repairs too, my wife's bee hives; never had a complaint from either the wife or the bees although I did get stung once. I'm not sure whether that was because of the pallet wood, the poor...

    Cavity Insulation

    In the mid 80s I used to install cavity wall insulation for a living. What I can say is there are many factors to take into account when determining whether it's a good idea or not but a lot of the horror stories you read about are down to a poor product being installed regardless of the...

    National Bee Hive

    My wife keeps bees and she recently purchased a second hand hive which has a few issues I.e. some rotten parts. I therefore fear that I'm about to loose a number of weekends to making various replacement parts. Did you use a set of plans and if so where did you get them from?

    Centre of gravity and tipping for a stand

    Sort of, I put a thick piece of chipboard between the drill stand and the top of the unit and built the sides up a little (3 or 4 inches) on the the base trolley, which seems to help. To be honest, it isn't 'empire state building' solid but perfectly usable as is. I do forget to shut the draws...

    Centre of gravity and tipping for a stand

    I have the exact same cabinet with my drill stand mounted on top. Mine doesn't have the additional structure/frame work you've added but is perfectly stable whilst using the drill even with the addition of a small base and castors that I added to enable it to be moved around easily. Admittedly...

    Bathroom corner cabinet dimensions

    Thanks all for the great advice.......I'll take into consideration both the rule of multiplying by 0.66 which seems to give a well proportioned cabinet and utilising the pentagon to increase the space. Dean

    Bathroom corner cabinet dimensions

    I’ll be embarking on my first real project of building a wall mounted corner cabinet for the bathroom and would like some advice on the unit proportions/dimensions (height vs. width) Are there any rough guides as to what would constitute correct proportions or should you just go with a...

    Bosch Workbench Build

    Boxer, Have you made any further progress? Well I took the advice on this thread and made the bench top a lot thicker than the Bosch instructions recommend. I glued and screwed 3x 18mm x 600mm x 1850mm chipboard together and added an 18mm thick piece of MDF as the main top to hide the screws and...

    Bosch Workbench Build

    Hi Boxer, No I haven’t managed to progress much either……. I think we must live in a parallel universe. I’m in the middle of decorating my bathroom (read renovating, it’s completely empty and the walls/ceiling have just been re-plastered) and I’m in the process of trying to get another job too. I...

    Sam, As a newbie to woodworking what's the reasoning for the top being 90mm thick?
