Thread: I don't normally
24/08/2013 17:50:29

Hi Derek - The top bit looks very good to me, the guilt cream in Ash works very well. The finial sort of highlights the void and draws the eye to it. I am not sure about the base though, I think I might have continued the curvey theme with it in some way but then I am no artist. You may wish to have a look at some of Mark Sanger's work for an idea of what I mean. A very nice piece though never the less.

Hi Sam - Also welcome from me, you don't say what part of the country you are in but if you are in the south-west Yandles Show is on 6th Sept in Somerset. I can remember many years ago learning to cut dovetails in school with an S&J saw a Stanley bevel edge chisel and a template made from a bit of angled aluminium. They didn't look great in those days (they still don't) but they were tight.

Thread: trailing leads

Hi Dave, Still around but don't sign in much these days. Sorry Mr. Fixit I don'y know your proper name and forgive me for teaching you to suck eggs so to speak but on a public forum I think a word of caution for those that may be unaware of cable ratings may be in order. Dave is quite correct in his comment about 1.5mm cable but again be aware that this is the maximum current that the cable is rated at before any safety factor is taken into account. -- Julian

Thread: Lets talk Bandsaw
24/08/2013 17:25:24

Hi Dave -- I use an old Record Bandsaw, they used to be sold as Burgess BK2 Mk2. I've had it for years and years and it has never broken a blade. You can see pictures of it in my photos. It's not used every day but is used quite a lot for the smaller jobs around the workshop.. I get my blades from Hamilton Beaverstock because they are only a mile up the road and again superb service. - Julian

Thread: trailing leads
22/08/2013 13:06:19

Just be aware that the standard kettle lead (IEC Connector) is only rated at 6A so the cable may not be good enough for 13A. There is a 10A IEC Connector that is used in the better quality kettles these have a little recess between the L & N pin socket but still check the cable rating. - Julian

Thread: belt sander
22/08/2013 13:01:15

Hi John - I bought a Bosch belt sander a while ago and although I didn't bother with the cradle there is one listed in the accessories for this model. Mine is the cheapest of the Bosch Belt Sanders but works for me just fine. The one that I bought isn't current any more but I am sure it's replacement will have the fittings available. - Julian

Hi Alan -- You may wish to put some photos and description on the AWGB forum in the for sale section. This may be passed on to some club members as well. Don't forgwet to put your location down so that people know where you are, this sort of equipment is generally pick up only. - Julian

Thread: special gift
06/07/2013 12:10:43

Hi Dennis -- That's really nicely done. I know people I meet say that there isn't a lot to turning a pen but there are Pens and there are Pens and it's not an easy job to get it just right and for it to stand out from the rest. Putting it in the correct box helps a lot too. Well done dennis.

Thread: image uploading

Hi Dave -- I don't think you can, if there is a way I am sure the moderators will let us know. Julian

Maybe I should sell mine, I only use it once in a blue moon ! £130 is not bad for this. Mine is not boxed and I have lost the manual but it's still complete and I only paid £29 for it.

I had exactly the same mail today reputed to be from a member of the AWGB Forum. Needless to say that he was not trapped in the Philippines either.

Thread: Sander problem

Hi Dave -- Just be very careful bypassing the switch, it's a very dangerous thing to do. Julian

Hi Simon -- Yes you are correct, there was another post about this on Saturday. Don't know if our new moderator will feed back to the company about it.

Thread: New moderator

Hi Mark -- Welcome to the forum, we look forward to seeing some of your work and helping if we can with your questions. You say that you are not in the UK, I would be interested to hear what the market position is in Hungary with regards to the purchase of tools etc  --  Julian

Thread: back issues
05/03/2013 13:27:23

Hi David -- I think that 2007 is as far as it goes, Myhobbystore took over the magazine then but had issues with the copyright so couldn't go back any further. I am sure this was the reason that the moderator at the time gave. You will notice that the magazine has just been taken over again so hoping that we don't get similar issues. I think they are still looking for a moderator -- Julian

Hi Dennis -- Age is getting to me faster that I had hoped, I don't remember anything about this post but I seem to have commented on it ! Anyway it looks like a good piece of kit you should be very happy with it.
