ben best tool cabinet i have ever come across(for me)was an old double wardrobe that i kitted out accordingly.unfortunately every time i look on ebay i end up with a larger tool collection and the whole thing gets rearranged time and again.
if you canget hold of a copy of new yankee workshop norm makes an hanging tool cabinet for his use(it's not near big enough for your tools)he draws inspiration from the studley tool chest i don't know if the net has any images on this but it is an absolute corker of a tool chest,sliding trays,hinged racks the works.

buy a company for a bad price sell it at a higher price to eliminate your own competition.
bosch are made up of about 280 subsidery companies.

james no your comments aren't strange,i love to hear peoples opinion on tools,
i use the bosch blue gho4-82 planer and honestly think it's better than anything dewalt or makita have come up with.however,that said i haven't used  a festool per se;but a colleague of mine does swear by them.
i use a bosch gst 2000 jigsaw
two makita sds drills
three makita cordless drills
hilti core drill
two bosch circular saws

Thread: Sanding sealer
01/02/2009 23:25:53
hey malc,
there are several types of sanding sealer available.
shellac sanding sealer
cellulose sanding sealer
spirit based sanding sealer
acrylic based sanding sealer
this is used as the base for your finish/i.e it seals the pores of your timbers before you apply the finish,after you have stained/dyed or coloured your workpiece.
the shellac based has a slower drying time so you can keep a large wet area longer.
the cellulose based has a very fast drying time,you will need cellulose thinners to cleanyour brushes.
the acrylic has the benefits of being low odour and doesn't carry a fire risk where the others do.
after staining applya coat of sanding sealer,when dry lightly sand/de nib with 240/320 grit paper.remove any dust and apply a second coat.when this is dry you can apply wax or varnish or shellac.
have a go
you never know
Thread: aeg router of2050
01/02/2009 23:15:56
hello james
like your reply.
i'm a kitchen fitter/joiner by trade.
the trend t5 is an industrial rated router where as the t4 is a light trade rated router.
the armature and windings on the t5 are more substantial than the t4.
i'm not being disrespectful to you james saying that bosch are on par with ryobi being a serious diyer.sorry mate you obviously haven't used the bosch blue proffessional range. the boschgreen range is actually better than ryobi.
have you tried the bosch gof 2000?
31/01/2009 20:31:07
russell,you say you're a floor layer?by trade?for a living?you may need a router in 110v for h&s purposes
trend t4 is more of a diy type router you maybe better with the trend t5
the dewalt dw615 and dewalt dw621 are worth a look as is the bosch gof900.
have a squint on ebay you'llfind something like for the right price

Thread: aeg router of2050
26/01/2009 20:43:09
aeg are owned by bosch,nuff said.
seriously though the aeg is a real workhorse of a router.if its a good price go for it.
depending on the work youdothe bosch GOF series of routers are worth a look.
go for the pro models not the diy stuff.
