Thread: Acorn Smoothing Plane

Derek, what are you doing messing about with my fantasy?

the nearest I got to that is a 100 year old 22" Record try plane for £9, I haggled it down from a tenner!


I did pick up a 071 router plane in mint condition with all the cutters, fence and boxed still with the original grease paper it was wrapped in but minus the instructions for nothing on freecycle

Looking forward to seeing how it cleans up. Not sure about price as I tend to pick up planes for £5.00 and in a box just at the right place at the right time, all I need to find now is either a Clifton or LN for £5.00 OK that is pure fantasy that last bit.

Thread: DeWalt DW100 Bandsaw help please

The only question I can answer is the first about the slot that is there so that you can change the blade when you want. On mine there rail along the front of this to which the guide fence is attached.

As for the others maybe someone who has owned one may be able to help but I would have thought that there should be a small table for the sander.

If the sanding discs are like the one on my cheap sander then they are sticky backed so you would need to remove the old ones then clean any adhesive before attaching the new one. The way I have been told to remove the old one is warm the disc up to help to release the adhesive. A heat gun would be a good idea to use but not too close and keep it moving.

i would say that she is going to one very pleased person Dennis. Well done on a great bowl

Thread: Yew Bowl

dscf7461.jpgYew Bowl

I had a piece of yew log laying around and like the shape when looking at the end, I could have got two conventional bowls but instead went with end grain. I still have another one to do in the future. I really enjoyed doing this one. It measures 13" X 8 1/2" X 3 1/2", I have just counted my fingers and they are all still there.

Thread: Bench Drill Press
13/06/2017 11:28:03

That's OK yes still making shavings I have added some recent work to my albums. This drill press allows for a deeper throat, but comes at a small price

That is right but the ones I have looked at don't seem to give that measurement. luckily I don't need to have a deep throat for the work I do, I mainly need the quill travel especially when drilling pen blanks.

Nice one Dennis should look great when finished

Thread: Black and Decker Band saw

Thread: A Plane Bowl

Thank you both.

Yes I agree it is a nice wood to turn and so many grain patterns in on piece of wood I still have another 9 the same size to turn.

First piece of proper turning for nearly two months. This is turned from London Plane and finished with sander sealer. It measures 8 3/4" X 1 3/4"

That is the omly problem with spalted wood it is getting it at the right time I have at least 8 pieces that I got and have rough turned, luckily they all feel quite solid and not to punky.

Good luck with the bandsawn box I have made some in the past and enjoyed doing them, but one in spalted wood should look quite good so looking forward to seeing it
