Thread: Sawdust and offcut burners
12/01/2012 23:10:51
Evening Mailee , I am either looking at the big one or the next one down , but not sure at the moment as I am about to expand in to a bigger workshop soon so I can take on bigger orders that up until now I have had to turn down .
But to be honest I used to install stoves for a living when I left school and I know exactly what you mean re cost of the flue pipe etc ,, If I were you I would skip the stuff you find on the net and go to your nearest Mole Valley as their stuff is good quality and as cheap as you will find . The main thing is to make sure any combustible surfaces near by are protected .
I am willing to put myself out on a limb and say that my Father inlaw owns a steel fabrication company and said he would make me one for far less as the principle is very simple regarding the workings ( or lack off ) . I dont expect to be doing anything about until next autum but if you can too and I can prove mine works I could possibly arrange for one to be made for you too .
We are based down at Yeovil so not to far from you to arrange delivery or pick up ,
Kind Regards Sam

Welcome Toppa . , Dont worry about asking stupid questions , we all had to start somewhere ! . .But if you are looking for good points of reference , try your local library as I have 3 localy and have cleared them out several times . And I am always diving in to Charity shops as they are a great source of reference books at a cost of a couple of quid each .
Kind regards Sam
Thread: is it tight enough?
08/01/2012 18:55:07
From what I can understand , each blade will be different . ie , different blade widths require different tensions .On my Record BS400 it has a guage ( through a window ) as a rough guide to what tension you are achieving , not 100% accurate but close enough .
Kind regards sam

Thread: Bust Bandsaw
02/01/2012 19:18:01
I think that that type of welding is known as "bird S##T " ......what does not help is the crap quality of the electro plated galvanizing they carry out these days . any slight ripple in the weld and the moisture in the air will hit the weld and cause oxidization . And when there was obviously not enough heat in the weld they may aswell have used blue tack .

But that said , good luck with your tuesday mission and seriously doubt they would want a fuss made over that as it "could" prove to be faulty batch of machines that "could" potentially cause serious injury to persons using the machines and would be grateful of the chance to recall any faulty units in the interest of the safety of their customers !

Thread: Keyed or Keyless chuch
23/11/2011 18:38:50
I cant vouch for different chucks but my Hitachi Drill ( pistol drill ) and it has a hand chuck , but when it is done up tight you revolve another sleeve on the chuck and that locks it tight . Never had it come undone , But I am not sure you can buy them as an after Market type fitting but worth looking in too .

Thread: Cutting board
21/11/2011 23:17:37
Personaly I use alot of PVA D3 as it has never let me down , but dont buy that cheap rubbish from DIY stores !! PVA D3 is waterproof so Ideal for chopping boards . I use Tung Oil to finish my boards , Minimum 3 coats or more the better .
Oh and who ever ends up with it , make sure you point out NOT to put it in the dish washer , as I had some one bring one back complaining it had split .........Yes after I got her to admit she had steam cleaned it at about 60 degrees plus in the dish washer ....No refund there !!
Kind regards Sam

Thread: A very tempting email
28/10/2011 20:03:26
Well , it has to be said , After much deliberating I have chosen to take up the offer , as I dont have anything to loose , so I replied
I simply sent them my details
Bank Account details
Account No 1234 5678
Sort Code 66 69 99
Bank --- Royal bank of Iceland
Date of Birth 25 - 12 - 0000
Name Mr J Christ
Religion Christian
Only Kidding , But I can see why some desperate person in a weak frame of mind could be sucked in and send them bank account details . It wouldn't be so bad if the spelling and grammar was so abysmal ..
As for being "CONFIDENTIAL" , I am more than happy to share the kind offer with my good friends LOL
Kind regards Sam

Thread: A very tempting email
27/10/2011 20:15:17
Here is the content of a recent email I received , how tempted I was BUT it is not enough money for me to be interested , if any one want the email address I will happily forward it on


I am Mrs. Marina Puteka; the Manager in charge of Bill & Exchange section of Bank Of Africa, (B-O-A) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso in West Africa with due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on 6th December 2003 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.

Although, I personally keep the information within myself to enable the whole plans and ideas be Profitable and successful during the time of clearance from the Bank custody.

The said amount was $21.5m dollars (TWEENTY ONE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND US dollars) You can see the below web site for your clarifications of the incident leading to PAUL LOUIS HALLEY Death:

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bona fide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank.

This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims, and I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% of the total sum as gratification, while 60% will be for me. Please, you have been advised to keep "secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after I conclude this deal with you.

I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in. All other necessary vital information will be send to you when I hear from you soon.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application form.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this mail.
Trusting to hear from you immediately

Yours Faithfully,

Thread: Disc sanding plate
26/10/2011 18:00:15
If you want a good flat disc you could buy a cheap diamond blade ( 30mm ) from toolstation , about £20 or try a local engineering firm too cut you one but it would need to be very well balanced or it woud just shake itself apart .
