Thread: Bentley Wood Fair
09/10/2008 20:54:00

I couldn't agree more with Oddjobs comments on fittings, and while I dont know much about clock mechanisms I understand the one I got for my long case clock (see my gallery) came from Germany. When it came to the face I couldn't find anything suitable - so ended up buying a sheet of brass and engaraving my own. I'm lucky enough to work at a school with access to CAD drawing package and a small CAD/CAM router!

On a similar note I had the latest Rutlands catalogue delivered today. It had a cabinet hardware supplement and everything looks top quality.

Thread: Sound proofing
16/06/2008 09:50:00
But the question was about Sound proofing not thermal insulation!

Condensation need not be a problem. You need a few small ventilation holes top and bottom to the outside, loosley plugged with cotton wool or similar to keep insects out. The air movement is slow and doesn't affect the thermal property, but it ensures the humidity is the same as outside, but the temperature will be above outside so the air in the void will be above dewpoint. It may get there briefly when the temperature ouside falls rapidly but should soon clear.

If you make your own double glazing make the panels NOT parallel by about 10 degrees, and line the end with the widest gap with sound absorbent material. The sound will get reflected into this rather than being bounced backwards and forwards between the glass untill it get through!

Never tried it myself but the theory seems to work and I'm told it makes a difference!

Good Idea. I'll talk to them when I see them, but this might not be for some time!

They normally meet on the second Wednesday of the month (3rd Wednesday June 08) have a speaker (not necessarilly wood related) and exhibitions, (next one at Wakehurst Place 21 - 22June), talk about their work and have a small sale table (surplus tools wood etc.) at every meeting. In November are having a tool auction.

And don't they feel a lot nicer! It's usually one of the first things I do to a "new" plane, but isn't that black stain a pain? Why on earth did they  feel it necessary

I too try to go on Friday, some times you can get better deals at the end of Sunday if you're prepared to haggle and they have things they don't want to take back!

I always try to listen to some of the masterclasses.. I always listen to John Pizey who gives one on french polishing. He's brilliant. Most things you can get from a catalogue but talking to people .......................

Thread: Honing guides ~ six of the best
26/11/2007 21:46:00
They do make it more accurate but they make it much slower. With a bit of practice just  feel for the primary bevel, lift up another few degrees, 3 or four strokes on a diamond stone, wipe the wire edge off and job finished  before you have even  fitted the blade into the guide. For the same reason (speed) I love the Clifton cap iron. You can keep your blade sharp in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take as you don't need to remove it to sharpen, and no time wasted resetting after. If you work like this you'll sharpen the blades as soon as they need it and will enjoy the work more.
