Re: MFC White High Gloss

I edged these in a 3D clear acrylic edge with a stainless steel background but you can get matched edging as well. Haven't got the exact prices to hand but a white sheet is just under 100 plus vat and some of the other colours and patterns a bit more.

Re: MFC White High Gloss

I often use a product called alvic luxe which is a painted Mdf board that has a high gloss painted surface one side with a melamine reverse. Available from Panelco in Stoke. The finish is far superior to any mfc gloss board I've seen. http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg225/jonwoodbloke/5F2AD987-F5...

Re: Solid surface course or self taught?

Yes not me although I am slightly round. Mj 80 pretty much sums it up. I would do the cduk course and then you will be accredited for Corian and most other manufacturers such as hi macs will supply you as well. Course was 600 plus vat when I did it 5 or 6 years ago

Might be that the 18-55 might have a broken auto focus and you can manually focus it. There's an A and M on the lens if you set it to M you should be able to manual focus it. Might work or the lens may bee Fooked.

Re: spiral sash balance

I normally groove the frame so you are not grooving out all your tenons plus it looks a bit neater from the inside.

I'm just doing a repacement sash with a grooved stile for the house opposite my workshop and the section size there is 57x 45 so 12mm bigger.
