Re: confused how to remove burn from this wood (whos name idk)

If you have a spare piece of the flooring you could let in a Dutchman but it is skilled work if you are not a woodworker.

Re: Cutting plexiglass with power tool

A bandsaw with at least 3 teeth in contact at all times. If your stock is thin then you might get some chipping if you cant mee the 3 tooth rule.
Drop the speed down and maybe masking tape on both sides of the cut line.

Re: Scheppach Basato 5-2 Bandsaw 240 volts

All the symptoms suggest capacitor apart from tripping the RCD. Are you sure it was the RCD that tripped or was it the MCB that tripped which would be consistent with capacitor failure.

You need to make sure the blade guide system can cope with such narrow blades.

Re: Sedgwick PT255 Startup Issues

Most probably a failing start capacitor. A cheap fix with a similar value capacitor from eBay.
Post a picture of the markings on the capacitor if you want a suggested replacement.
It could be a different problem but capacitor is by far the most probable and the cheapest thing to try first.

See how well (or not) you can get the stain out without sanding through the veneer. Choose a grain filler a bit darker than the average colour to make the splits look like grain flecks.
