|Thread: Happy New Year All|
So do I Derek, so do I !! It was sadly lacking in 2017 for various reasons but we should be clear now to carry on as we were in 2016. Have a good 2018 Derek, see you on the other forums. Julian
I would just like to wish all of the members, staff and viewers to this forum a very Happy and Prosperous 2018. Happy New Year All -- Julian
|Thread: Looking for Ryan Davenport|
Hi Michael - I am not sure what Ryan is doing these days as due to personal circumstances he has withdrawn from official activities and we haven't heard from him for a while now. Derek's link is a good idea if the query is awgb related otherwise you may have to look further. Julian
|Thread: Small Table saw 10ins|
Hi David and welcome to the forum. In answer to your question I think the reply would have to be "use a router" for several reasons. Dado sets can be extremely dangerous and have to be used unguarded, all of the suppliers that I have seen say that they are not suitable for machines that employ electronic braking on the spindle. All machines supplied in the EU must have electronic braking as I understand it (or at least that is what my suppliers in work have told me). I went down this route many years ago having watched Norm Abram on the goggle box but now find that my router and a few cutters are much safer and more controllable than a dado set would be. The choice obviously is yours in a hobby situation but just remember that when you switch off the machine the blade will be trying to undo itself and a dado set will have much more torque than a single blade (flywheel effect).

|Thread: Acorn Smoothing Plane|
Hi Dave, I have seen these in the boot sales for a similar fee so probably not out of the way. My Son is living in Bangkok and says the same about tools it just adds to your luggage weight when going home, he tends to get his friends to take stuff out to him when they visit and get a free hotel ! -- Julian
|Thread: Win with Irwin|
Thanks Derek, it's a nice clean cut with a fine kerf so yes - a good win
A big thanks to Tegan Foley and the team at The Woodworker for running the magazine competition in June. The Irwin 165mm x 1.8mm 24T Saw Blade arrived this morning in good shape all ready to be fitted, It will be interesting to see how it compares with the existing B&Q Special (not that there is anything wrong with this one). -- Julian
|Thread: Marc's carving|
Marc -- Good to see you back after such a long time. Hope things are ok with you, if I lived a bit closer I would offer to do some retrieval work on your old PC and get your data back. So long as the hard disk is ok it shouldn't be too difficult I am sure the grandchildren will be able to help you. Looking forward to more posts -- Julian
|Thread: Staircase finish|
I would go for the Rustin's as well, once cured it's like a diamond.
|Thread: Circular wooden column|
Hi David - This one is not as easy and straight forward as it may first sound. You may well find that the roller will need to be crowned and it will probably have a square shaft running through it so the roller will either need to be breached or done in two halves after milling the centre hole. I think most of the mangle rollers were made of Beach. I only repeat this because I have read it from posts on the AWGB Forum recently. I wonder if you were to look up your local woodturning club on the AWGB website you may find someone local that could do the job for you. I know your woodworking skills are very good so it shouldn't be too much of a problem for the average turner if you can work together on it. - Hope you are successful --- Julian
|Thread: Big Thanks|
It's not the size that matters Ron, it's the quality - Glad you're sorted ArryB -- Julian
|Thread: Spam ?|
27th @ 16:34
Yes, I had one as well. I wonder if they skimmed the site for users or somehow managed to get the user list from somewhere. -- Julian
|Thread: Christmas Toys|
This one came through on another forum so thought it may create some interest here.
|Thread: 1:20 scale Kenworth T908 Tri-drive, Side-Tip Quad Road-train.|
Thanks for posting Roger, these are very impressive. -- Julian
Well I go to sea in a bucket. I have never seen anything like that before. Thanks Derek. -- you certainly got me thinking down the wrong line Sam.
Nope - still none the wiser. I have seen wooden stemmed glasses before but don't see what this does to help you make them, it's going to be a jig of some description but what for ? -- Julian
|Thread: Windsor chairs|
Hi Derek -- Mine arrived this morning as well, as you say a very well written book and will provide a lot of useful information. My thanks also go to the team at The Woodworker Magazine for all their work and to Tegan for getting in touch with me and letting me know. -- Thanks again -- Julian
|Thread: Next generation....|
Hi Paul, as you say it's very quiet here at the moment. Good to see your daughter getting the skillset on the lathe. You don't see too many girls in woodworking but it's a good hobby to have. -- Julian
|Thread: Charnwood W583 Planer Thicknesser Problem|
Good news Andrew, glad it's all working again. -- Julian
