It was a great show this year,parking for me was easy as I`m disabled and can`t walk to far and the disabled parking was excelent,there was plenty of seating around the place ,which made life easier and there was always somebody polite to anwer question on different equipment on the different stalls and demo`s.So good luck with next years and heres hoping its even better.

Hi all,

I had the same problem with my power planer,thought it was me not knowing how to use it properly,glad I`m not the only one.I gave up with it in the end and went back to the hand planes,got a better finnish,no curves,and was quicker ,a couple of passes with it normaly does the makes a far nicer swooshing sound to.

Hi Lee,

haven`t seen one of those for a while,thats one of those cheap machine mart chucks isn`t it,with the independant jaw tightening facility instead of a scroll mechanism,have you used it,and how do you find it if you have,

You could always use thin ply and dye it what colour you like,so it shows up,I have a couple of large magnets attatched to the lathe,for the joyful experience of finding small metal things lost in the shavings

I have a light pull drive made by Axminster andit is a very handy piece of kit,you drill the holes first,then fit the block to the drive,bring the tailstock up until its rond ,then make your light pulls,was your measurements really 4-5ins,don`t you mean cm,regards , Eric

Thread: Loose tenons?
30/10/2008 20:57:00


sorry,the first joint I described was a loose togue joint,but the principal is the same as the tenon joint.


30/10/2008 17:51:00


they work the same way as modern biscuit joints,but are one long length,you route out a mortice,hand or power, on both edges to be joined,then the loose tennon fits between the two routed grooves.the other way is the traditional mortise on both sides of the joint,and a loose tenon fitted between both,if you google loose tenon joints and click on one of the listings they have pictures of them to clarify.

Hi Ron

My dad used to keep his rags in a bucket with a built in lid over night,all was well for years,then one morning he went to his garage to load the van and the bucket was on fire,so do be very careful they can go up when you least expect it,I always peg mine up to dry so the air can get all around them just to be sure,of course not near anything flamable.


Thread: Wood Turner needed who can produce small runs
28/10/2008 09:41:00


for oak offcuts,all you can do is find your local woodworking buisnesses and see if they have any,or local woodyards,to see if they have offcuts from boards ,most of the wood I get is from people who know I`m a woodturner and give me stuff from their gardens.
