Thread: Bargain Glue Gun
03/04/2010 00:43:58
Normaly i would agree and i wont usually buy extended waranties or insurances but the way i treat my glue guns is not realy fit for purpose i will post some pictures of the "dead" ones they are not nice.
I accept that they are only good for 6 months and i am more than happy with what they do for me, and as i say i cant realy manage without one, the last week waiting for the funds to find its way into my bank has been a nightmare and i havnt managed to do anything out there so i dont mind buying them,
The fact that it has only cost me £3 for the next 3 years couldl save me about £50 or about the cost of another 5 glue guns so in this case i am happy to pay it.

I have just had to replace my glue gun again !
Trouble is i turn it on when i go in the shed and off if i remember when i go out ? in fact there is very little turning i do without my glue gun.
So i trawled the internet for the best value without spending too much because it will wear out in another 6 months and i dont want to spend too little because it probably wouldnt last 6 months !
Eventually i found a Stanley glue gun in Homebase for around £10.50 ish but thats not the bargain. For a small payment of £3 it is covered to be replaced free for 3 years !!! Bargain...
I even explained how i am not the best at looking after it and often leave it on all day, i even said that i do go through them every 6 - 8 months because of what i do, and this i was told " is exactly why i should spend the £3 ! "

Thread: Push Latches

Thanks Guys
Sorry it took so long to get back been sorting out the kids even at 20 they still want you to run around after them ?
I am trying to turn a jewelry box, it hasa drawer in the bottom and just to be diferent i want to leave off the handles so a little push latch one that springs open when you push it is ideal, trouble is the only one i have is nearly 2" round so i was hoping to get a small barrel shape one ?
One of the links Richard left shows what will probably do the job just need to find out the price and delivery details.

Hi ben
Very nice goblet looks well turned, hope you dont mind me saying,  it looks like the base might be a bit small but that could be the perspective of the photo, lovely bright timber.

Anyone known where i can get a small barrel push latch, i need something that will conseal in a drilled hole, all the ones i have found screw to the outside and are visibloe.
Also it needs to be as small as possible certainly no bigger than 10 - 12mm diameter and preferably no longer than 20 - 25mm.
Tall order ? any help very much apreaceated.
Thread: Ralph's Pierced Lidded Pot
18/03/2010 23:44:41
Thanks Dennis
The glue gun is a very underrated tool for us turners, but it is supprisingly helpful, just dont over apply it or you will have more work getting it off after, try it out on scrap wood first to get an idea of what is needed.
Look forward to the end results
