  1. Thanks gents, great setups... i will look into both options. Luke
  2. 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
  3. I'm looking to get a router table. I've got it down to two brands. A jessem or a UJK They both seem to have their pro and cons, the most notable is the table tops. Jessem only seem to offer phenolic whilst UJK offer cast iron. I'm preferring the look of the Jessem, but I'm really unsure about the top that they offer. Would phenolic be a deal breaker for anyone or are they just as good? What would you guys choose between the two tables?
  4. Hi Im making a shelf out of oak. Its 1.5 meters in length 8.5 cm wide and 20mm thick. It has a bow in it that i cant seem to mill out with my planner / thicknesser. Can anyone recommend a video to show me a couple of techniques to help me get the board flat. Many Thanks Luke
  5. I need the thin cut to be between the blade and the fence. I would need to set the fence 7 mm from the blade.
  6. I do want one but they are £80 in the UK, not sure i can afford that at the moe. Thank you though
  7. Hi, i need to cut a couple of hundred thin strips (7mm thick)of solid ash on a table saw. The strips need to be 300mm Long x 22mm Wide x 7 mm thick. Can anyone recommend a video of a jig i can make? Thanks Luke
  8. Thanks for all your advice and ideas, ill give them all a go and ill try and source a 20mm dowel next Im making a pegboard so im after the best fit possible.
  9. Hi, I have a 21 mm dowel and a 20 mm forstner bit. Does anyone have a good tip on how to make the dowel to fit the hole without sanding the dowel down to fit the hole? Im thinking of some sort of router bit jig, but before i go down that route i thought i would ask here to see if there is any better advice. Thanks Luke
  10. Thats good to hear, im liking the look of the jessem
  11. Hi, Im looking to get a router table. The one im looking at has a Phenolic top, is that any good or should i go for cast iron? This is the one im looking at is: Jessem Mast R Lift Excell II Table Package with Phenolic Top, Fence & Stand. https://www.rutlands.co.uk/sp+power-tools-router-tables-jessem-phenolic-table-with-lift-jessem-mast-r-lift-excell-ii-table-package-with-phenolic-top-fence-stand-jessem+2202kit Another brand im looking at is a UJK Cast Iron one https://www.axminster.co.uk/ujk-technology-professional-router-tables-ax887924
  12. Thank i have taken your advise on board. Is there a wood stain i can use that will also protect the wood, they arent going to be in contact with lots of water, but i would like to avoid the wood from becoming water stained.
  13. Hi, i have made a couple of small planters out of redwood pine. (Attached) I want to stain them but i also would like to protect them, can anyone recommend what i can use? I've tried boiled linseed oil but not 100% sure thats any good as i noticed water is still absorbed by the wood when it gets some on it. Many Thanks for your help as always.
  14. You think i should drop down to m6?
