Re: Sedgwick Parts

By what you've said I think you'll have to take the shaft out to remove the broken locking pin. There's a long bolt running from the bottom of the pulleys upwards. Its happened once with me that the belt pulley has misaligned on the shaft or dropped down slightly. The locking pin goes through a hole...

Re: Sedgwick Parts

You can lock the shaft by opening the side door, there's an 8mm hole on the casting below the pulley's, you should have a piece of I think its 8mm bar with a slight bend in it to lock it.

Welcome to the forum. I'd probably buy tools as you go along rather than have a big start up list. Buy tools to use for your next project or commission if you see what I mean. Buy the best you can afford and upgrade what you use the most, first. The best deals usually turn up when your not looking! ...

Re: Spindle moulder power

The SM3 would cope but if your into a lot of windows and doors id probably go for the SM4 out of the two.

Or even better refurbish the Wadkin or perhaps trade in for an up to date model, my opinion that is as I prefer the old wadkin stuff and up to date.

Re: End Grain Chopping Board

Good effort on planing it by hand with that hand plane! Fair play to you! Nothing better than getting stuck into it and having a go.

You could use the Osmo Polyx Oil on it or the small tin of the Osmo worktop oil. Plain old olive oil will do as well.

Looking forward to seeing the end result.
