Nice job looks almost Japanese.

I bought a Record twin motor unit and set up a plastic soil pipe system to a small shed outside the workshop. I also put my compressors in the shed. With some insulation it keep the noise outside the workshop and does not get complaints from the neighbours.

If the Shim works dont wory about replacing it.. If the Shim is made and fits properly, not just a piece of Fag packet stufed under a corner it should be OK. SHims are good engineering practice and often used.

Hi Admiral
Have you considered lowering the floor to make it level and give decent head room. I am guesing it has a stone base if it is victorian.
Dust extraction has been mentioned. I dont know if you are able to put the extraction unit outside the cellar. This could give you a little more room and save transporting dusty bags through the house. It would also get some of the noise outside.
The Band saw is a good starting point and as always I would say get the largest you can cope with, in price and height which again is a constraint.
Consider second hand machines they can be very good value for money. Is your space is limited I find having machines on dolleys or wheels most helpfull but with a sloping floor could be a problem. Which brings me back to sorting the floor.
Whatever you decide I am certain you will get all the help you need from this Forum
Good luck

Hi Chris and welcome. I think you will get as many sugestions as replies. I bought a Schepech following an article in Woodworker. I am very happy with it they do come up on the second hand market from time to  time.

All the skills you need you have as a woodworker. Welding or tin bashing is not required. The whole thing could be made from Ply with the frame in the outside to support it. Just look at a Cyclone and think how can I build that. Try to think outside the box
Thread: Panel Raising Router Bit / Advice

Probably the best router table is the New Yankee Workshop Super Router table.
It has a good dust extraction set up. A good fence system. Lots of storage. It is easy to build as well.

Thread: SIP 01332 Blades

When it comes to Saw blade and bits like reducing bushes I always use CRM Saws in Waterlooville Hants.
Although I am more than 150 miles from them they ar as good as round the corner A phone call and what I want is in the post. I send a blade and it is sharpened and returned.
Give them a call where ever you are.

Hi Olly
I am afraid I dont like the idea. it would appear that there is a lot of dust being blown into the atmosphere. Only som of it will get sucked into the colection bag. The operator was not wearing a mask.
I think a suction systen from either a Shop Vac or a Collection systen conected to the tool and the use of a mask will be a beter bet.

These units look interesting. Only small problem is the size of the colection bag. If there are any chippings in the collection it will soon fill up.

I guess the price you are talking about is right. We usually pay in the UK £ for $ in the USA. Forget exchange rates. Brimarc were selling New Yankee Plans for £10.95 If I am not misteaken. The USA price was $10.95.
Thread: Mahogany & Oak trinket box

The rice in Sushi is presed in a box. TO make it easy to remove the rice the sides can be lifted on the base. Probably no a lot of call for it in the UK. Unless you like Sushi of course.
Thread: Saw vice
15/11/2009 01:35:03
I have used both a workmate and a bench vice with two pieces of timber to hold the Saw when sharpening. The important thing is to hold the saw straight and firm, Whilst allowing easy acces with the sharpening file. Not Rocket science.

It is quite easy to make a GRP cone The cylinder pare is the more tricky part. As the resin cures it will shrink a fraction making the release more difficult. There are ways to make the former or mould so it can be removed without a problem or you scrap it. The two parts can then be bonded together. Simples as Alexander would say.

Your design is a little like a Sushi Press. Very nice Job.

Cant you take it to Spain or is there some restriction on importing Timber?
There are Yacht transporters which have room on the trailer which might be worth considering. May bee you have looked at that sort of deal.
What area in Spain are you?

In a Nut shell Keith Smith built a cyclone. I believe he found it worked OK. However I dont know if he would reccomend any modifications to improve the efficiency.
Where he had a problem was in releasing the Moulding from the mould. This is a common problem with GRP work.
I have been considering making a cyclone myself. If the job was to make one then a sacrifical mould is in order. On the other hand if several people want a cyclone it may be worth making tools to produce the number required.
I have done no costings but I cant think it would be anything like the £1000 mentioned.
From my point of view if it cant be made for £250 of less I dont want to know.
Its one of those jobs which is on the list but not at the top. When I have finished another job I will look at it and see what the cost would be.
Anyone interested can always let me know

I have jus come accros a set of screw extractors in the Snappy range. Woodworking tools as oposed to Engineering. They were hiding in the workshop and I had forgoten all about them. Must have been a Christmas present.
