David C sharpening course

We're getting back into a 10 pager on sharpening again. It really is not that complicated and you can choose between Tormek, oil, water or diamond as you please. The technique is much the same. Smooth back Grind 25 deg without losing the temper (cool) Hone to 30 deg Micro bevel if you wish using a g...

Screws

I use turbo gold from Screwfix and have never had one break. Maybe I'm not putting them in tight enough but they are twice the price of the junk. I find they drill in well and are good at resisting splitting.

Cabinet scrapers

Will do with pleasure. I downloaded the article from FW and this also favoured the Veritas over the LN owing to the choice of blade type and bowing thumbscrew

Help on cherry strip floor

I hope not, it's all we will have. I've done the calcs and 15mm pipes at 300mm ctrs at 60 deg C will keep us warm, providing it all pentrates the said multi-layer floor. I intend to run the heating for a couple of weeks to dry everything out before fitting the engineered laminate. Anyone any thought...

Cleaning spindle moulder cutters

Maybe Austrian cat pee is different! I thought we might meet but have just realised I can't go as am working abroad. (OK then 4 days hols in Barcelona and 1 day's work) Maybe you could ask them if the blade cleaner is corrosive/toxic etc? Re the PT's I use a Hammer C3-41 Universal which has the 1700...

Cleaning spindle moulder cutters

i agree about the solvents, but thought that cat pee would be even more dangerous than the solvent ;D paul In my case the cat pee'd on the bedroom floor whilst we were re-building and had no ceiling beneath. It landed on my planer tables and was highly corrosive. I am still trying to return them to...

Help on cherry strip floor

I am in the mire! the underfloor heating people (water) say you can only have one layer of wood or the response time is too slow and the engineered floor people say you cannot lay it directly over the pipes. I had put down 17mm flooring chipboard so as to be as thin as possible and intended to go fo...

Top for router table

I thought tufnol was phenolic resin reinforced with fabric plies but I may be wrong. I think it machines OK on all normal processes

Deco'ish door finished

Finally hung on some very expensive hinges and just waiting for the handle and rose. I am looking forward to making the second door for the front in the light of the lessons learned. 1>Work from a full size drawing on some mdf rather than dead measurement. 2>Dont make the door until you have sourced...
