Re: Sander recommendations

A mains sander will probably have more oomph but more important is the speed and orbit pattern. Some sanders have smaller pattern of say 2mm for fine work and some have a 5mm pattern for quicker, more aggressive sanding. Look at a good budget 150mm like the metabo sxe 450. Or for seriously quick rem...

Wide belt sander, spindle moulder

Hi,
I'm going to start contacting dealers but wondered if anyone has a 950mm wide belt sander going? We also need a spindle with sliding table and power feed (power feed not so important as we can get one).
Cheers

Re: Bench project: where to get timber?

Contact your closest cabinet maker/joiner and ask them to supply you some prepared timber to the sizes you need.
I'd be happy to supply someone if they gave me a cutting list. Might take a few weeks though!

Re: Just starting out and need table saw advice

If you're cutting sheet material for cupboards then even a cheap track saw can be extremely accurate. You also need less space than a table saw to cut large pieces.
I lived without a table saw for years when I started out.

18mm or 24mm ply?

I've been asked to quote to replace some wardrobe doors with birch ply. I usually dissuade people from large birch doors as they tend to warp or twist.
Anyone notice a difference between 18mm and 24mm in terms of stability? The doors are 530mm x 1830mm so not too big.

Re: Combination machine

I would ring/email a few machinery dealers if I were you. Tell them your requirements and a budget and they will tell you if they think they can find something. Sometimes they will unload a machine for cheap if they don't want it taking up space. Ebay is more expensive than dealers these days!

Re: Joining legs to worktop

Those brackets will work but obviously won't look great and you won't be able to mount the leg too near the corner.
I would use a standard knock down bracket (attached) which will mean adding an apron around 3 sides of the top.
