|Thread: Wooden Bench Screws|
I would try a silicone spray, sold in aerosol form, available from merchants and B&Q.
works for me for various similar applications.
|Thread: What sort of glue is likely to be used to join these wood pieces together?|
Yeagh! that's what I found.
Yeagh! that's what I found.
|Thread: Belt Sander.. Branded or non branded one?|
One of the very best.
|Thread: Removing rust from hand tools|
There was a video on here some years ago, about using a 12volt battery
and 2 electrodes connected placed either end of a tank of solution, place
tools in, and turn on. Must be on the internet, so search.
Gets better and better, very skilfull.
|Thread: Tea Lights|
Well done Mike, a pity more people don't think like this.
|Thread: Record player cabinet|
Very satisfying, and lasts forever.
|Thread: Been a while|
Nice desk Al. Rustins makes a damn good finish very quickly, one of my favourites.
|Thread: Show in the south|
The venue was too expensive thus making tickets and stand fees far too great for
traders and public alike. For me it took three hours to get there from west Oxfordshire
by train and a small fortune in fares, but a very enjoyable day, always bought something
good there too.
We lost the best one at Ally Pally, so I don't think there is much, one, I believe at
one of the London race courses.
|Thread: At The Going Down Of The Sun|
Great job Derek, you do some fine work.
|Thread: Making panel cauls.|
|Thread: Cabinet project - uneven boards|
That's a tall order wihout the right equipment, find a machine shop and get them
to thickness the boards for you.
|Thread: Shabby chic vase|
A valiant effort Sam, very attractive.
|Thread: Cheapo Dovetail jigs|
I can see the way you are thinking, I was the same, when i needed a jig
I was reluctant to spend a vast sum of money on the best, my cheapo jig
worked o/k but there are drawbacks to the more primitive jogs, as I found
out. They are more difficult to set up and use, but as it is probably a one off,
go for it, I did and you very soon get used to the us eof it.
|Thread: Orbit or Belt Sander Which One?|
Here is an example of that of which I was speaking earlier, we don't get them like this any more.

It's a real pleasure to see a project carried out accurately, correctly and skillfully,
a credit to you, one that will last and last, something to be proud of.

|Thread: Digger, Loader.|
Well, I guess we all have our way of doing things, best left alone.
Yes a hole saw works, but soon gets blunt cutting 14 wheels through 18mm hardwood, (Beech)
and then you start to loose the finish, tried it.
