Thread: Cutting a deep, narrow slit in a long shaft
12/10/2010 18:44:40
Hi Simon & welcome to the forum.
With such a narrow slit i would probably use a dremel with a round wood cutting blade.
I`d make a simple jig to run the body of the dremel against to keep it straight.

Thanks for the heads up George, which months will it be? I shall have to go & splash some
Well done Ralph, sorry to hear you`ve not been well, i look forward to seeing your article.
Thread: no more nails
10/10/2010 09:09:04
It wouldn`t have been my first choice Dennis, but it certainly sticks wood to plaster well, so it should stick wood to wood.
Good luck & let us know how you get on with your turning.
Thread: Subscription Renewal Offer
10/10/2010 09:05:02
Could i ask while we`re talking subscriptions, what happens after the 3 mags for a £ offer is finished?
As they have your bank details do they continue the subscription at normal rates, or do you have to take out another subscription.
Guess who also didn`t take notes during a telephone conversation 
Thread: DeWalt Planner Thicknesser DW733
09/10/2010 21:23:15
hi Andrew.
I would say it`s the noisiest machine i have, as it`s quite a high pitched noise, having said that so are the other portable thicknessers i`ve come across.
Not sure where you are in the country, but i imagine a good tool seller would turn one on to give you an idea of the noise, if he was interested in a sale.

Thread: DeWalt Planner Thicknesser DW733

What do you want to know Andrew?
I`ve had one quite a few years & have been very happy with it, it`s light enough to be portable, it`s a little noisy, but i preferred it to the Axminster which i`d used previous to getting the DeWalt.
I`d suggest you fix it down to a bench etc when in use, which is easy as it has 4 holes on it`s base & away you go.
Good luck.

Thread: bending perspex ?
29/09/2010 14:11:18
PM sent mate.
29/09/2010 13:43:56
I`ve got this perspex.

 It`s 1.9mm thick & as you can see very flexible, it looks blue as it has protective film both sides
This is an off cut, if you want some i`d happily post you a few pieces.
Nice to see you back.

Good to hear you`re back in action & making progress Derek.

Thread: Being Lazy

There is  satisfaction to be gained when the opportunity to do something by hand arrises, but usually time constraints prevent this.

Thread: Finishing pine staircase and spindles to prevent yellowing
23/09/2010 10:58:35
Hi Debbie & welcome.
Pine naturally yellows, & i don`t know of a clear finish that will stop this.
If you want an oak colour, stain the spindles before you varnish/lacquer them. There are lots of different  stains, so it`s just a case of buying the colour you like, though a good tip is to try the stain on a piece of scrap first.
Good luck.
Thread: NVQ table

Looks a lovely piece.
Is the darker timber an inset veneered strip?
