Re: Looking for advice on "Buyers Protecion"

I have bought small items from the forum with no problems. Apart from a morso bought from a supplier and couriered, with no problem, everything else was collected. Most framing equipment, in my opinion, is so delicate, that I wouldn't trust a courier or their insurance to ensure that its not thrown ...

Re: Chop service and underpinner

"...am I missing anything about the process that should raise flags?" Perhaps consider the size of try frame mouldings that you would like to underpin. If the tall edge width is 10mm or more you should be fine, if its an 8mm or less then I use a dovetail router on the tall back and underpin the shal...

Sorry I meant the Fletcher 2100, like the one that Ade704 has for sale at the moment.

Re: Hello from Kent

Have a look for a Keencut Ultimat Gold or a Fletcher 2000. Both older models. I use a Flatcher, but Keencut is British so parts are easier and quicker to source. Friends who use the new Keencut model, say they prefer this older model.
Good luck.

Re: Does anyone recognise this?

The grain sounds like Obeche and I'm wondering if they've reversed a moulding and inserted an mdf tray at the base?
Looks like maybe you could cut down a R+H A344?

Delete Cookies Button - Bottom right of the screen.

So am I the only one that just found the "Delete Cookies" button at the bottom of the screen. Is that normal in Forums?? I've been cleaning my cookie cache on my browser, as I thought John suggested, but have still been thrown off every time I reply to a post. I was about to give up on the group, bu...

Re: Rounding Prices

I second this and would even go further and say rounding up to the nearest £5 would be even better. Lots of my customers prefer round numbers. I must be taking your comments too literally John, but really?? I thought the whole point of your software was that once it's setup, it's a case of "the mach...

Re: How much is this Morso worth?

If you search ebay for Morso F and check the "SOLD" box in the filters, you'll see that recently they have sold from £200 upwards. Plan chests go from £200-£450 i think. I recently bought a plan chest. Its very helpful when the seller can suggest a local courier who can palletise it (strap, wrap and...

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

I've recently been lent a bandsaw for my workshop.
I've found it really useful for customising/making spacers from offcuts.
I've managed to keep the dusty tools in a separate garden shed workshop.

Re: Tabernacle Frame

That looks great Alan!
I live in a traditionally Baptist area, this would fit right in, in one of the local Chapels.
What would you have to charge for something like this?

Re: Updating Estlite

I've found a program in the list called ESTsoft, which opens ALTools Update.
Is this something to do with it?
When I open this (ALTools Update), it says there is a problem with my network connection and to contact the administrator.
