Thread: Flattening sandpaper

Hi Amos,

Cut of the length you want and coil it up tightly in the opposite direction . This will help to cancel out the bend. Then fix it in place. I usually use double sided tape. Hope this is of some use.


Thread: wine glasses

I am curious. When the stem is turned, what is the process of joining the glass to the new stem. How much of the old stem if any is used. "We're any glasses injured in the making of these pictures"

Some of the stuff was also avaliable for free.

Welcome to the forum Mike.

You haven't filled your profile so i dont' know where you are from or anything about you. Filling it is not compulsary but helps when getting or fiving help or advice. As to your question. In the British Isles our tape measures and rulers have metrick mearurements on the top and imperial on the bottom, rulers have the same or one on front and other on rear. This means we do not need to convert . I think getting a new tape measure might be your best bet especially if you intend to follow British Isles/European plans. Best of both worlds . Hope this helps. Again welcome and i hope you stay around and show us some of your work here soon.

Thread: Ash die back
08/10/2013 00:34:38

I have to report that the Department of Agriculture here in Ireland has confirmed the first case of the disease in a native Irish tree has been found

96 cases were found since last October.all in imported trees which have since been destroyed.

However a 97th case has been found in a hedgerow close to but outside the location of the first out break last year.

All Ash trees in a 250m radius of this outbreak are being cut down and burnt.

This is a worrying turn of events.


Thread: Self-taught or Vocational Training

Check if your educational authority runs beginers evening classes.

If that doesn't work it would seem that you will have to go down the self taught route.

There are lots of good working magazines around and lots of informative You Tube tutorials. The members on this forum will help you with woodwork problems.

Sorry i can't be of more help. Hopefully someone more knowlegeable will log in.

Again, i hope things work out for you.

Thread: Downloading Online Archive

I doubt if you can download back issues. I would think that the powers that be/ oweners of the site would allow that. They would want you to (A) subscribe and or (b) buy the back issues. Maybe i am wrong.

Thread: Kauri Wood advice

Denis and Kate,
I presume that when Marc changed his profile Sparky to A1 the guides were removed too.
A pity as they were informative. I hope someone in authority replaces or re-writes them.
Welcome Kate.

Thread: Signed up!

A sign the size of a glazing panel of the side on the sliding door, (so it is not hiden when the door is open).
One at least on the back. Slightly bigger writing. It has to be readable at speed.
The quality of your work displayed on this site, tells me it is time to stop hiding your light under a bushell. Make them re -do to the job to correct spelling mistake.
