  1. Hello, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a flexible but rigid dust hose/attachment that i could clamp to my drill press? I hope that makes sense. Many Thanks Luke
  2. I think within the next 12 months i will have, im thinking about a dedicated one if i do go for the wide belt in the near future.
  3. I'm definitely edging towards Laguna .... purely because it looks awesome! Like some from the set of Alien! Thanks for all your advice everyone!
  4. Hello, My shop is around 1000ft sq and 8 meters in height, possibly soon to be 4 meters and im thinking of adding a second floor. I cant have anything outside as i'm based inside a large hanger type building, if that makes sense. I have 3 shop vacs for my smaller tool i,e router table mitre saw etc. The tools i need the extractor for are my AXMINSTER TRADE AT310SPT SPIRAL PLANER THICKNESSER https://www.axminstertools.com/axminster-trade-series-at129pt-planer-thicknesser-spiral-cutters-230v-101157 itech 6x110 oscillating edge & bobbin sander 1ph https://ww
  5. Thank you for this information, very helpful.... the only other unit similar that i can find is AXMINSTER TRADE AT357CEH 3HP CYCLONE EXTRACTOR https://www.axminstertools.com/axminster-trade-at357ceh-3hp-cyclone-extractor-105784 But looking at the two i think i prefer the look of the Laguna. I'm looking to get a 400mm thickness and possibly a large wide belt sander in the near future, do you think it could handle larger machines? Once again Thank you
  6. Can anyone recommend a good dust collector? Im eyeing up the below two but i cant decide. Im edging towards the Axminster one as it can hold more. AXMINSTER TRADE AT639E 5HP EXTRACTOR https://www.axminstertools.com/axminster-industrial-series-ub-805ckh-extractor-102237 OR Laguna P Flux 3 HEPA Cyclone Dust Extractor with Fine Filter https://www.machinery4wood.co.uk/product.php/site/froogle/sn/LG%2FPFLUX3/google/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwuL_8BRCXARIsAGiC51DOI-mCpV9VBkC_qfbT3mnTIQtohUa9HD4LkRpIUMMJ-yD9gn6LNT8aAk0GEALw_wcB Im based in the UK so my options seem alot mo
  7. Perfect, ill go for the 1/2 bit. Cheers
  8. Hi, I want to router a groove in some hardwood (Ash or Oak) 20mm wide and 10mm deep. Am i right in thinking using a half inch 20mm router cutter will have less vibration resulting in a cleaner cut? I have the bit in a 1/4 inch but just wondering if i should up to 1/2 or will it not really make a difference ? Many Thanks Luke
  9. Hi, I recently purchased a Laguna 18BX which is a lovely bit of kit and super simple to setup. However i do seem to have one issue with it. The blade seems to wobble or bounce back and forth ... this happens alot more with a thicker blade installed. Do any of you have a good video recommendation to help guide me to fix this? I think its to do with the wheels not being aligned, but i dont know how to test for that or fix it. Many Thanks Luke
  10. HI, im looking to make a mire saw station.. Can anyone tell me the difference between the two stop on the link? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Miter-Track-Stop-for-T-Slot-T-Tracks-Woodworking-Accessory-Tool-DIY-Manual/383584526294?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=651981517216&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 30 and 45?? i want to make the mitre stop where there is no back to it, so i can use the station for other tools So im looking to have the stop drop in front of the path of the wood.... if that makes sense?
  11. I was looking at this one https://www.axminstertools.com/axminster-industrial-series-6-x-108-oscillating-belt-sander-501295 but they look the same to me, but Axminster is about £700 more! So im "Edging" towards ITECH
  12. Hi, I'm looking to get a new edge sander i have found the ITECH 6X110 OSCILLATING EDGE & BOBBIN SANDER 1PH https://www.scosarg.com/itech-6x110-oscillating-edge-bobbin-sander-1ph Im just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this sander? You seem to get a lot for the price, could anyone recommend ? Many Thanks Luke
  13. Hi, Im looking to get a new Jessem Mast R Lift Excell II Table Package with Phenolic Top, Fence & Stand router table that uses cylindrical router bodies. Ive been given a list of routers from Jessem that would be compatible. Can anyone recommend a good quality one that can take half inch bits also. Are there any thats not on the list that are worth looking at? Bosch 1617/1618, DeWalt 610/618/616, Makita 1101, Hitachi M12VC and KM12VC, Milwaukee 5625/5615/5616/5619, Rigid R29302, AEG MF1400KE, Felisatti RF
  14. Thanks gents, great setups... i will look into both options. Luke
  15. Hi, I have a small Makita shop vac hooked up to my chop saw. The filter clogs up pretty quickly and it loses its suction. Could anyone recommend an alternative, ive been looking into a something like this... Dust Commander X30 - 30 Litre Industrial Steel Kit https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XW9H1DF/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_6?smid=A5ADO59JXP9FR&psc=1 But im not 100% sure it will prevent the fine dust from going into the vac. Im not interested in making my own one at the moment. Many Thanks Luke
