Re: 4 sider extraction

Hi David
I have got the normal sitax and it wants 20m/s or 3600 cubic meters an hour. I think yours will do a bit wider so probably somewhere around the 4000
Hope it helps

Re: Corian Glue for fixing together of-cuts ?

I don't think so Bob. It is to do with the guarantee with the finished product. Hehe fabrication has to be done by an approved trained fabricator.

There are some chipboard core worktops with a thin layer of solid surface available. They were pretty expensive and I have never used them.

Re: Drawer runners

If only it was that simple here, you need to be registered on the official roll of hand workers and or have a firm uses the products with a unique tax ID code.
It is insane, but that will change when I register down the line. In the meantime I'm really happy with the prices on the Quattro runners.
