Well I knew it was a celtic country, but I must admit that my first thought was Wales. Well, I am Welsh. Actually the more I look at it, the more impressed I am with the quality of the photograph. Did you take it yourself?Noely":1i5cwurt said:And where else would the picture have been taken
Yes, it is a 3" outlet but if it becomes a problem I can easily enlarge it to 4". It is the quietest in it's class at 83db and just keeps winning awards for quality of finish. GWW were impressed. I got it for 349GBP inc vat. I am really impressed with the build quality. It can just about be described as portable when it weighs in at 27kg. Unfortunately, I won't be able to use it until I have finished the workshop and have the jointer.Noely":1i5cwurt said:Haven't seen a Makita in the flesh yet but seem to recall that the US version only had a 3" extraction outlet, maybe changed for the UK market. Although did read that it was alot quieter than other models. 2 blade cutter I presume? What kinda money?
Excellent news Noel, which one are you going for? I really want the 60A but I am still unsure whether I have the room to fit it in.Noely":1i5cwurt said:Yes, Jet Jointer. The slush fund is about 6 weeks away from purchase, so looking forward to that.
Shhhhush, don't tell anyone. :wink:Noely":1i5cwurt said:BTW, can you go off-topic in an off-topic forum?
It has a more powerful motor, in addition to the extra cast iron.Noely":bbcwetz1 said:Can only justify the 6", 54A model. The 8" would be nice but can't really see the extra cost (and it's alot of extra cost) being worth it.
It really is beautiful, you should be very proud.Noely":bbcwetz1 said:Yes, picture by me, limited run of framed prints available......
Thank you, I will look after it well. Which thicknesser are you going to get/have you got?Noely":bbcwetz1 said:Glad the Makita has got a happy home, read the GWW review this morning and it's certainly well received.
It seems a really well built Japanese piece of equipment. Have a look at the forum users thread to see where I bought it.NeilCFD":n4yn53sd said:Can I ask where you got the Makita thicknesser for £349? I'm not at all jealous, honest... :wink:
Done.NeilCFD":n4yn53sd said:Also if you have a moment, please would you post to the 'Forum Users Planers and Thicknessers' forum so I can finally register a vote for the Makita
Ah, well that would be because I'm not from Ireland originally - I'm actually Manx. Before anyone asks, no I don't have three legs. It is true that the cats have no tails though...Newbie_Neil":3dzenasf said:I've meant to ask you this before, why isn't it Niall?
