Thread: Wood burning stoves.
02/12/2009 15:53:02
I like Dave's idea it sounds good. I use a Portable Gas fire. Yes it does produce some moisture. I havnt found that to be a problem. My workshop is similar the timber walls are insulated and skinned with Ply. However I have one long Wall which is Block and it is a retaining wall for the edge of the Garden and next door's ground. Although I tanked the wall it is still somewhat damp.
Thread: Splintering plywood with a circular saw
02/12/2009 15:47:22
A fin sharp blade may help. I always cut through masking tape. In part to reduce splintering but the mainreason is for marking out. It is easy to redo a line if I mark it in the wrong place. I usually cut with sme waste to allow for a little splintering.
The edge can then be trimmed up on the table saw or using a router against a straight edge.

The cats are house cats so dont have a Cat Flap to negotiate.
Our Cats dont often fall out of bed.
Thread: Squeaky Hinges

I would just use 3 in 1 and dont over do it apply the oil with a thin screwdriver. Lay some newspaper on the floor first to catch any small drips or accidents.
An alternative would be to replace the hinges. however probably not practical

Most on this Forum use the Garage for other uses.
I have heard people say they carry a bottle of water in the car and they claim it has never frozen. Like you I use warm water usually from the kettle.
However now I am retired the answer is to roll oveer and have a lie in.
Thread: Steve's New Camvac installed
02/12/2009 15:07:55
A nice set up for Steve. However I see he will have the same problem I have. When the bag is removed with the chippings it will be somewhat difficult if very full to get it off the Wire frame without spilling some of the contents. THe answer of course is to empty often. A bug job on the planer thicknesser will be when it manisfests itself.

As a general rule if ever there is vibration on any machine . remove the blade this will show if the problem is in the motor and driven wheel or elsewhere. Plus all the preceding advice.
Glad the problem is sorthe Alan

Thread: Tablesaws and Bandsaws
28/11/2009 08:20:47
My Band saw is over 6 feet tall it is a massive brute but no where as good as the table saw. However they are designed for dis similar jobs yes both cut wood but not in the same way. I would be hard pushed to cut a Dado with a band saw.
We should compare like with like.

It sounds as though all the tools are a modification of Soldering Irons. I trust you dont pick up the tool bu the business end. I often got burnt on soldering irons and can now pick up plated which are very hot.

What better reason for building a project.
Thread: help

Have a look at this
it may give you some ideas. The main pipe has a screw fitting at the extreme end for cleaning out if required.. At the suction end the pipe drops down the wall and then through into the dust collection shed. The bottom 90 degree bend has a roding port in it for clearing any blockages. These can be easliy created if the collection bag gets full and you dont notice. The white fittings are lavatory pan connectors. They fit the Axminster Plastic Blast Gates. Axminster also do adaptors of various sizes. I also fitted outlets of smaller size these take a taper push fit hose and when not in use are pluged with a wooden tapered bung made on the lathe.
Any questions just ask

On the second hand machine front Only buy if you can try. If the machine sounds rough, metal grinding etc keep away. Check blades to see if there is any in and out movement in the shaft and does the blade wobel again stay clear. if a blade is blunt or worn it can be replaced at little expense. Band Saw check that the wheel runs true no wobble. The blade guids turn free or if tof the static type they are intacr. Usually there are guides above the table and below.
There must be someone on this Forum who is in the area to help.

Hi Admiral
I take it from your last post that you are in the Manchester area. Some of the Old Victorian Houses in that area have some interesting features. Like Thick Slate Tables in the cellar. They were used to keep milk and perishables cool. I dont know the lay out of your property. I agree it is quite a task to lower the floor. It is one which I would have taken on when I was a few years younger.
If the floor has a concrete surface you may find a previous owner laid it over the victorian floor hence it being on a slope. DIY jobs are often less than perfect. it might be worth making a small test hole which can be filled with a bucket of concrete if you do not wish to go further.. If there is access to the outside wall in the area of the cellar it might be possible to dig a small hole on the outside. If you did decide to do work yourself you could pass all the debris through a temporary window. You could also pass mixed concrete the same way. I accept it is not a zero cost job but if you do it yourself it will not be too pricey. Friends and Family can often be of help in these jobs. When you ask round it is surprising what tallents people have. Some years ago I hit a Deer with the car, I have never seen so many Butchers appear from the woodwork.
