Cheers Matthew,

hey, I remember seeing a photo of a gorgeous shelf in a bathroom a few months ago.......have you any plans to pop a few photos in a gallery?

I guess you're not a big football fan either?

More of a Rugby man m'self, although I do enjoy the world cup. 

The gallery is on my list of things to do, unfortunately the list of things to do is about eight pages long at the moment so it may be a while! 

Cheers,

Matthew

Arron,

I have a Bosch PBS7A it's a good size belt sander and reasonably priced £60'ish. A good thing you can do with it (apart from the obvious) is turn it upside down and clamp it to the table for small pieces very handy.

I have a Skill 4'" belt sander which isn't made anymore, (pity) When it \does eventually bite the dust (pun intended) I shall go for a Makita 4" as these seem to be bullet proof.

Aaron,

whatever you do, buy a 4" rather than 3" machine. Much more controllable and capable, and far less likely to dig in at the edges. Mine is a Makita..........and I would highly recommend it.

You don't necessarily need to spend a lot of money on a brand new Makita model either, eBay's always worth a close look. Some people spend a lot of money, use the tool for one job and find they don't need it again - if they couldn't sell it and binned it, well, I'd hate to think that any decent power tool could end up in landfill!
