Recommendation for replacement sawblade for Hammer C3-31

I need another Universal blade (as supplied with the machine). Originally ordered one from Felder UK with the expectation of delivery 5-6 days. Now told it is out of stock. Maybe back in stock in 10 days ..which takes us to the Christmas shutdown etc so realistically it won't be until 2021 before I ...

Re: Sander recommendations

Also grit size will affect speed of removal at the expense of final smoothness.

Personally I like my Mirka CEROS especially as all the dust (or most of it) is sucked away by the vacuum cleaner.

Re: New to routers

I'm not convinced that a 1/2" router is that necessary if you're just starting out. Really depends on what cutters you think you might use in the future/type of projects. I don't rate the Trend stuff. Their routers used to be OK but mine has had a lot of problems. Maybe it was a Friday night job but...

Re: Using Festool KD (knock-down) fittings - landing cupboard

Thanks Mark. Never heard of those screws. The downside for me is that the heads would be visible. Ok for the carcass but not for fitting the face-frame.

I'm very pleased with those Festool KD fittings. I can disassemble the whole thing in under ten minutes.
