Re: 35+ Year Old Oak / Elm / Chestnut boards...

Hi, how long are the boards and what price are you asking. I am interested in the Elm and Chestnut.
Where would your location be in the UK and when. It's tricky at the moment of course with the Covid.

Re: Jigsaw recommendations

Thanks for the replies, i think the Erbauer will do me. I don't use it a lot. When i was on the road it was a different story so DIY tools were not a choice.

Finish on an old wood valve radio

I have an old smallish wood cabinet valve radio from the 50's, the finish appears to be varnish (at least it's hard and shiny) I plan on sanding this back to base wood and refinishing it.
What would be the best varnish to use.

Plans for high sleeper kids beds

I am looking for plans for what they call a high sleeper be with a small staircase to get to the bed. Basically it's a bunk bed without the lower bunk.
I don't mind paying for the plans if they are suitable but free would be good as well.

Any leads or links appreciated.

Re: Hi. Record Power CL1 help needed!

If you have a multi meter set it to ohms, touch one lead to the live input to the motor and the other to the case of the motor, there should be no reading. Make sure the plug is out of the socket of course.

wide sanging

Does anyone know of a company in the south that will do sanding of table top. I have made the table top but want it sanded evenly. I have a normal belt sander but that's nor really good enough.
