. I registered last night the names Jord and im 27. I Stumbled across this site while looking for info regarding shapers or spindle moulders. I see there looks to be some useful reading here, so decided to stay a while.

My main bread and butter is in the metal work side of things ie shot blasting welding spraying and general argri fabrications. Over the last few years I have been getting more and more drawn into wood working as I am building myself a shepherds hut andd enjoying it. Ive picked up a few old bits of woodworking kit, these are a Wadkin saw table, Sagar thicknesser, modern morticer, general small tools and a spindle moulder I am not sure of the make as no makers plate but I am leaning towards a Robinson. I will try and contribute to the forum with things I do, but I think with my lack of knowledge regarding woodwork there will be more questions than answers lol

Cheers Jord

Thanks Sachakins. Father let me have one of his sheds for a workshop. 3 phase is a bonus especially when buying equipment as the 3 phase kit always come a lot cheaper. (y)

Poor chap! Ive got no idea how my parents ever thought calling me kevin was a good idea! I must ask them at some point 😆
WELCOME JORD :] ...and my brother is called Kevin, which he gets annoyed by and then reminds himself it means "handsome" / "of noble birth".
:] It's amusing to watch the process. Love him. :]

Welcome to the forum Jord. quite new here myself but already starting to learn from other members of the forum.

Whats wrong with being called Kevin? I have to ask because I have a son called Kevin & I never thought of it as being a bad thing, maybe he does, will have to ask him lol

😆🤣 i think its just that usual thing where people dislike their name. I cant even say it sounds old fashioned, but it somehow sounds wrong to me.
Mind you, i know someone who called their daughter chardonnay 🤔😆 bet that's ageing well
