Re: Small Workshop Compressor

Also handy for spraying, cleaning, inflating car and bicycle tyres, kid's inflatables and tons of other uses. Mine is oil less which is a bit noisier than an oiled machine b...

Re: Woodworking/Tool Shows & Exhibitions ??

Last decent show I was at where real bargains could be had was a long time ago, can't recall the name of it. Company that ran it went bust and was never held again. 2003? Woodex? or something similar. Ally Pally or Wembley C Centre or somewhere.

Edit- Woodcut.

Was it the Gorilla D3 you were using? Halfway through a bottle, seems good and had no problems. Otherwise regular Titebond PVA is good.
