Re: Glam Moulding

The materials are not expensive, and you mix resin with hardener as you use it, so it will last well. I had to build up layers with the table as if memory serves me correctly, you should only layer about 40mm at a time, but that won't matter with a frame. I reckon you could make some really amazing ...

Hi, I will find my one as not on my phone, but not disimilar to this one i found. il_340x270.1906834395_9zsn.jpg My one was from an oak tree on a nearby farm. They wanted a coffee table and as it had splits and imperfections, resin was a good way of filling these. I think i took some WIP photos so w...

Re: Glam Moulding

I know you have come up with an alternative, but have you ever looked at a resin finish? I have used it on a coffee table and it was really smart.

Just a thought.

Power tools for sale

Hi, Thought i would offer these on here before advertising on woodworking forum as they can be useful for framing. I have upgraded my tools to brushless Makita 18v gear over last few months so have some duplicate tools i don't need. Dewalt 240v multitool with quick release. Will include a couple of ...

Re: Is there an easier way to make multi pane cabinet doors?

It can be fiddly, but practice (like anything) makes you speed up. I will be making 6 sash windows in september, all sashes are 8 panes. It was easier when we used putty, but now we generally use beading, so 64 to cut per window can take a while! This is i guess similar to what you are looking to ac...

Re: pain in the neck

Might be off the mark, but look up rotator cuff injuries and see if symtoms fit. It is a shoulder rather than neck problem, but it may affect the neck as it causes ligaments to swell and can pinch nerves. The reason i thought of it is that i dislocated my shoulder about 4 months ago. My wife put it ...

Re: Is there an easier way to make multi pane cabinet doors?

If you have a router table then i would use these: https://www.axminster.co.uk/axcaliber-sash-bar-ovolo-cutter-set-718730 From what i understand, it would be the same principle as making a window with panes. For the outer frame, you use the sash ovolu and machine the detail, then on the mullions. Yo...

Re: Dust extraction

I have my dust extractor in the corner of my workshop with and split along the way with "Y" splitters (which i found better than 90 degree turns) and blast gates. One pipe to my thicknesser is almost 6 metres without an issue, so putting in another room won't be a problem. I use these for turning on...

I have it set up for all 3 with ducts and blast gates and it doesn't get clogged like my record power one. It even works with beech which is the worst i ha...

Re: Half-Lap Joints / Machinery

Should read, "If not using prospero's method" I also have to say that i reckon a table saw (especially the budget models) is a more dangerous tool to use than a mitre saw. The cheaper ones don't have induction motors so are noisy with quite a bit of vibration. I have a big cast iron panel saw, but i...

Re: Half-Lap Joints / Machinery

I agree with mark that a table saw can be a useful tool for s framer. As i have a workshop full of tools, i use my table saw, thicknesser, bandsaw, router table, spindle moulder as well as my mitre saw for framing jobs. I have even used my dovetailer on frame. I don't have to justify the cost of the...

Re: Half-Lap Joints / Machinery

I enjoy watching norm abrams too. Steve Ramsey is a good channel as he tries to show projects that can be done on a budget. I guess the machinery you need depends what type of framing you want to do. I know some framers on here machine their own mouldings so can justify a spindle moulder in their wo...

Re: Half-Lap Joints / Machinery

An easier way than a table saw would be a mitre saw with trenching facility. Many of the lower end mitre saws now offer this. If you get a mitre saw with a laser guide you can be very accurate. The other alternative is to get this: https://www.rutlands.co.uk/sp+power-tool-accessories-saw-table-acces...

Re: Fitting wood screws into MDF.

It is still going strong thanks. It is a great machine and will deal with oak and ash without any problem whatsoever. It is built like a tank and with the double top clamps, deals with the widest mouldings you can buy. Same can't be said for its owner unfortunately. I have only just come out of hosp...

Re: Fitting wood screws into MDF.

I use the method outlined in the article jerome posted with no issues. The key as it says is making a bigger pilot hole than you normally would for timber. When screwing in, it will make a squeaking sound. If the noise is quite loud, your pilot hole is too small.

Re: Rebate planes

If a small bit to remove, chisel is easy and quick. All above options are good. Alternatively, a router with a guide and flush bit would allow you to extend the rebate as much as you would like, very quickly. The guide can be any straight offcut of timber. This will also leave a perfectly neat finis...
