|Thread: Benchtop thicknessers|
I had this problem with my old Woodster planer/thicknesser. The advice I received from the VERY helpful people at NMA was to drive a Torx bit into the recess and release the screw. You will, of course need replacement screws for the blade.
|Thread: Flock box linings|
I use these http://www.flocking.biz/
|Thread: Table top planer/thicknesser|
I have now bought a Kity 439. This appears to be a compromise between the low end and full floor standing as far as price is concerned. Now to find out if performance is similar.
Many thanks for all your contributions. It seems to me that all the cheap machines are built to a price but that is the same for everything that is cheap and that is why it is cheap.
I think I will bite the bullet and get a Kity or Record Power. The cost will exceed the use I will get from it but it will at least have some secondhand value when I have to swap woodwork for knitting!
I am looking for a table top planer/thicknesser for my tiny shed (sorry workshop). I can't afford a floor standing one and in any case there isn't room. It won't get much use. I have used a friend's Woodstar on occasions but I think there must be a better one although I do like the price. I don't like the flimsy fence which has to be removed to use the thicknesser, this can be a 5 minute job. The Charnwood machine can be changed over in a very short time.
|Thread: Digital issues|
Many thanks Danny. I note that the subscription expiry date is now 31 July.
I hope this reaches you as I cannot find a link directly to you on the contact page or anywhere else on the site.
I cannot open the latest digital issue on the web site. A week ago it was OK and currently issue 250 and earlier are also OK.
My subscription number is XXXXXXXX which according to my details expires on 30 June 2012

I cannot access the latest digital issue of Good Woodworking. Is this a web site problem?
|Thread: sticky label|
Hairdryer, then white spirit.
|Thread: Scheppach Basato 1 Bandsaw , Manual ?|
|Contact NMA and they will email a pdf version foc.|
Have a look at this http://www.british-trees.com/treeguide/elms/nhmsys0000464701
It will tell you all you need to know about Wych Elm .
My understanding is that the elm bark beetle only affects trees over about 12ft high! There is some evidence of a resistant strain so we may get them in time (but probably not in my time).
|Thread: Ironmongery Direct|
The founder of Screwfix sold out and made a bundle. He then created Toolstation and made a lot more when he sold out to Travis Perking/Wickes. Can we look forward to a new kid on the block or even better sell his expertise to Rutlands.
By the way don't be fooled by Ironmongery Direct's offer of a trade account. It's no such thing. It is just a credit account which has to be paid off at the end of the month. You might as well use your credit card.
|Thread: Part Identification|
|Thread: Disc sanding plate|
Two solutions I have used:
A spare plate from Axminster for one of their disc/belt sanders.
Make a disc from 12mm ply and attach it to a pulley wheel.
These were both 10inch and have worked a treat.
|Thread: Joint Genie|
I can't let the rant about Joint Genie go without saying that my experience was completely the opposite. They had nothing but concern for my problem, I made no demands of them and was treated with the utmost courtesy.
I concur with all the comments concerning the use of this jig. A work of genius!
|I was advised that if I had any problems with the web site I should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I would not expect subscriptions department to be involved wit the web site.|
Soon after I bought my subscription to the digital version of The Woodworker I emailed Support and asked how I would know when the latest edition would be available. Email advice, or a notice on the web site?
As I received no reply I decided to wait, and then I waited and had a look on most days then two days ago I found the April and May editions had mysteriously appeared. Perhaps someone could let me know when publication day is. By the way what are the newsletters referred to in the postings?
Question 1 in the competitionQ1: How much lighter is this drill than its predecessor?
Is there a trick question in the Ryobi competition?
30% more compact does not mean it is 30% lighter.
