    CBN Wheels

    Has anyone bought a 40mm wide CBN wheel to fit a Record 8" grinder ? I'm thinking of upgrading to CBN and I wondered if there were any pitfalls. I've read that the bushing set from Axminster isn't compatible with this type of grinder unless 'alterations ' are made. Thanks in advance, Dave

    Shed advice

    I've just bought a new 12 x 6 shed to house equipment for woodturning (garage space getting a bit too cluttered). I'm after advice regarding insulation.

    Wadkin knives

    Just been looking through a few boxes of "stuff" and came across some Wadkin planer kinves. They're a bit too small for conventional planers though. The markings on them state Wadkin 180 - 30 - 03 as being the size. Any idea what machine they're from, 4 cutter possibly ? Thanks in advance. Dave

    Doctor, doctor

    I was showing my doctor a nasty rash on my "willy" yesterday. He seemed pretty uncomfortable and didn't really want to touch it. All he said was "Make an appointment for Monday morning" and carried on pushing his trolly round Tesco. Dave

    "Getting wood"

    My wife told me to go to the doctors to get some of those tablets that give you an erection. You should have seen the look on her face when I came back and tossed her a bottle of slimming pills. :lol: Dave
