Re: Hi all - advice regarding underpinners for a new aspiring professional framer!

Hi Tom and welcome to the FF :D I use a CS89 and would recommend it without hesitation. With the correct range of Cassese wedges it makes light work of joining all the mouldings I use including hardwoods. With the colour coded cartridges, changing the wedges is a doddle. I've tucked my compressor ju...

How to "Bookmark" and then, bring the post up again?

I realise I should have worked this out for myself by now :oops: but would someone explain how I bookmark a post and more importantly how I bring the bookmarked post up when I want to re-read it?

Thank you in anticipation.

Re: Jyden Chopper Value

I agree with Justin's advice for the chopper price and his opinion of the worth of the rest. However, if your vise (vice over here) is a Stanley 400 then that has some value. I paid £40 for one recently. They can make more.

Have a happy retirement :D

Good evening John

It was happening as I went from one part of your site to another but it has definitely stopped since I clicked on the "remember me" box :D
