Thread: Another weekend of under-achievment??

I got a Wet sharpener some time ago and got a jig to carry the Planer knives. I have found it invaluable because no matter how careful you are there are times when some foreign body gets at the knives and puts a den in them.

I recon the grinder must have paid for itself by now

Good luck for tomorow.

Thread: Computer drawing

I totally agree with you. Tech drawing allows you to communicate a design to others. If you have an idea its in your head. If you can see it in your minds eye then you dont need much more than an idea of the dimensions.

Some of the best ideas have been done on table napkins and the back of envelopes.

Re your steaming problem I now see what you are up to I recon that the "flat surfaces" would be best laminated. I think I would try a few experiments with a steamer and develop a technique.

Have you managed to see the New Yankee WOrkshop Bent wood Hat Rack?

I have just tried the link from this page and it will lead you to a map then you selece UK and it will then ask Black and Decker or Dewalt when you select dewalt you will see the manual section in the middle of the page.

Below is a link which dewalt imply has all their manuals. You will need to enter the main part of the catalogue number as it appears on the rating plate of your product:

 I hope this helps. Please let me know

As with any maching Decide what you can afford put some extra cash in even if that means a bit of saving and get the best machine you can afford.

I was lucky enough to come across a large MiniMax it was second hand but in prety good condition. I wanted to be able to resaw and profile timber 9" wide. On edge this created a problem for most of the saws around £500.

This machine looks good for the price. I wonder what the reliability will be like.

Thread: Drum Sanders
14/03/2008 02:05:00

I was lucky enough to get hold of a SIP Drum sander

It revolves at quite a slow speed but it does have an oscilating motion as well.

The only problem I find is the Sip and the Jet only have 3 drums. However with some metal machining and parts from other makes and sizes you can make some drums of different sizes.

After the tennioning jig probably one of the best things I got.

There is a similar system called Cedar strip. All the Cedar is machined to the same size perhaps 2 x 1. On the thin edges one is machined with a bulnose and the other with a concave of the same radius as the bul nose. The strips then fit together and can be formed into quite good curves. It was used in building wooden boats. The strips were glued together using Epoxy resin.

Thanks Derek I may find that of use for my own web site where some of the pictures are big and take an age to down load on slow systems.

I believe the Woodworking Channel has some more changes on the way to complete their relaunch.
Thread: Axminster's new catalogue
06/03/2008 18:22:00

I guess that one factor could be. The items which are not very popular may have been bought in some time ago and are still priced at the same. However popular items which have been restocked have had price increases levied by the manufacturer which are passed on.

I have found that things in general in the USA cost in $ what we pay here in £. So we pay twice the price in the UK. Well just to buck the trend I got an email today from a American company, Garrettt Wade offering a 333 piece drill set for $90 all but a few cents. At 2$ to the £ roughly that is £45, well I bought the same item from a company in the UK for about £30 all be it some time ago.

I have to say that whenever I have had dealings with Axminster I have always felt that I have been well looked after and not been asked to pay over the odds. Mind you it would have been nice to get a 50% discount. But then we do live in the real world, don't we.
