Re: New framer need some advice

Give these guys a call:

They're very helpful and they do van deliveries. They should be able to sort out all the consumables you will need to get going.

Re: Basic manual Hoofman router - Is it worth getting

Mark, we have a Hoffman if you'd like to pop over sometime and see it in action.

That might help with your decision process.

Re: New kid on the block

Hi Mark and welcome to the forum I’d highly recommend coming along to the Guild Weekend in May where we will have a room full of experienced framers giving help and advice on a variety of framing topics in a relaxed and informal setting. There’s no classes to sit in, just the chance to ask questions...

P90 for us here too for most things. Occassionally gummed conservation tape, or aluminium tape as appropriate.

Re: Framing Training (GCF) & Military Funding.

Mike was definitely the person near Bristol who previously did the training on that scheme - when I saw him last May he was clearing out bits of equipment ready to demolish his house and do a full rebuild on the site. Presumably he's well on the way with that now so I doubt he would still be able to...

Re: Mounting Wedding Rings

Is there any reason why you can't use a thin needle to make very small holes that would be hidden by the rings themselves? Or could you not put the holes under the ribbon that being used to tie the ribbons together?

Re: Am I a bit unusual having a band saw in my workshop?

We're very lucky because not only do we have a lot of "toys" (sorry, tools!) in our own workshop, plus a fully functioning woodworking workshop that my Dad has at his house that we regularly take advantage of using his pillar drills and bandsaw and the like. But we are also next door to a bespoke st...

Re: Newbie questions - what do I need to get started?

Welcome jabrenna I would agree with others David and poliopete - go and get yourself some training because it will be worth every penny in the long run. Most trainers will be happy to tailor a day or two on basic skills to exactly the sorts of thing you need to learn. Once you’ve done that you will ...

Re: Unidentified Underpinner

If you contact Wessex at their Leatherhead branch, some of the Origin people are working there. If you email a photo to Garry White, he was one of the trainers at Origin and he'd probably be able to tell you.
