They usually have a fixed metal flap up the spout somewhere, you can bend this one way or the other to deflect the chips more in one direction or the other.

Re: gloss finish Kitchen

I think you have to machine polish, flattening off between coats is the only way you will get a mirror finish, if you build up layers with out flattening off you will never get a flat finish at the end, it will always have a rippled effect. Just my opinion, every one has their own way, I do know not...

Re: Kitchen Finishes

A framed kitchen in my opinion has to be hand painted. Otherwise the join between cabinets / end panels etc are always visible.
My painter will probably spend 2 days preping the kitchen before painting, I pay through the nose for decent hand painting but it is worth it in the long term.

Re: To brake or not to brake

All "STOP" buttons are emergency stops in my opinion.
So with all my machinery if there is an alternative I will use it.
So the 4 sider is enclosed so I just power down and let it wind down rather than brake stop it. Saws I just use on / off which are DC braked anyway.
