It spits , chips and cracks as you have found out . Ive used it once on a gate and decided after that i wouldn't use it f...

Stanley 45 A gift from an old joiner

One of the old boys down my road stopped me in the street today and said he'd like to give me his old stanley 45 if i could use it in the workshop . I was expecting some battered old rusty thing but he presented me with this :shock: https://i.imgur.com/DJyBNVL.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5II2qjM.jpg

Re: Gothic arch architrave

It was a bit of a mystery why the moulding was going wrong as the dry runs worked perfectly but i did the cutting in two passes and the first pass was taking away enough timber that the second pass was missing the top part of the jig so moving a little as it went around .

Re: Timber pricing/size - rule of thumb?
