Re: Howdens kitchen worktops

I wouldn't glue the square edges, back in the day when I did worktops I always used a special worktop glue that had movement......I guess a polymer based silicon would do the job.

Re: Dark stain

If you want black black.....the restoration guys use Chinese black, its a calligraphy ink.
From looking at your photo it looks black brown.....Ive seen venge stains that look simular.....
Or use Chinese black with with a brown tint.

Co matic also make a smaller 3 wheel version....DC 30....

They also do a smart stand for power feeders.....which allows you to raise and lower from the front of the machine....no more leaning over the spindle or walking around it seems a great idea.

Couple of year's ago I upgraded my Felder power feeder with a co matic dc40, a big 4 wheel feeder....240 volts and under 500w....just plug it in a 13 amp socket.

The Felder PF was not able to slow down enough where the co matic has a variable speed that slows down to snails pace......

Or.....Another option is to fix a MDF sled up on the slider so its nearly touching the cutter....secure the timber...run it past the the cutter
