I got the current issue of GW today amd Megan tells us it will be the last as it will merge with The Woodworker. i have read the GW since it was first published and can remember Andy King 'reviewing' the screwdriver with a tedium alloy blade, any one got one of these? along with a test of doughnuts and tea bags there were the usual articles on various aspects of wood working. I also subscribe to The Woodworker, I started with the Woodturner, and continued when it merged with the Woodworker.

I enjoy both magazines, my preference for which is best swings like a pendulum!

So am I better off now they merge, obviously I will only buy the new mag but what will it cost and will the aditional 8 pages be as informative and as wide ranging as GW?


And what of this forum, once the liveliest one going and now with very few posts

Thread: Jointer/planer combo question
02/05/2018 20:23:39

Most paners will only come up to 6mm from the rollers, this is to save planing the metal bed!, try a fa;se tabe froma sheet od 6mm MDF, use ful for planing really thin pieces.

Thread: Power chuck
08/02/2018 17:12:09

I have used the Craft suppies versio of this and was really glad to get a scroll chuck, my Axminster is now 25 years old and still as good as new and transformed what I can do on the lathe.


Thread: Forstner bits
06/02/2018 17:12:32

I bought a set of Record Fortnser bits and they are OK for hobby use. Don't be too dissmissive of cheap ones I have a set twety five years old and still workable.

Look on youtube for some excellent videos on how to sharpen one


Thread: Power chuck
04/02/2018 17:31:20

I have a Record chuck and it is a scroll chuck, and a good one. I am not sure why someone would tell you that a record chuck is not a scroll chuck. Is the chuck reltively new? is so get on and use it.

Hopefully you are sorted now, be careful I can see why the old one was broken, the plastic is not very strong.

Try putting some photo's up, some one may be able to help

There is a lot of similarity in the saws, mine is a Metabo and is simply a renamed Electra Beckum, had it few years and still cuts well.

The drive belt is not a problem, a mate of mine has that model and he replaced the drive belt with one meant for a Record saw. I doubt the fence the same as record as they use their own guide.

I think you were miss sold and you should complain the Ebay as the saw is definitely not in excellent condition.


Thread: Palletwood Christmas Tree

Yes , definitely, should get a pound from someone with a wood burner..

Sorry if that sounds a bit harsh, the angel looks great
