    No - that wasn't exactly the plan. :)

    Although, I could fill a coupla bin liners and post it over......

    * Seriously, it ain't much good. Horrid mix of all sorts of stuff - ply, mdf, treated pine and all sorts.

    Aw go on Dave, you'll make it for lunch Tuesday.



    ...If you leave now:p

    I honestly would have grabbed my tub of filler and tried that before mixing up this hardwood dust, I've become so lazy my dad would slap me round the ear if he heard me say that :sorry:

    No remains of squonk hole. Going to leave it. The fd510 leak at the best of times with pristine fit holes, and just as much chance the bottle will leak. Mostly a non issue for mine

    needs to cure properly



    i need to wait on tubing anyway, that was dripped. also need to secure the bottle with mdf or something so it is slightly raised off the bottom and can't move

    the edge isn't a gap, just different tone from filling

    needs 75 watt upgrade, the 60watts is a bit pansy, hopefully 75 is better

    so it is a bit of a lemon, but has been fun, and hopefully i can fix up most of the faults

    MUCH easier on a workbench, say what you like about tools not making a project, but some things just make life better, for a better result

    yeah, 1550P

    just got the tubing for the wood mod today. Also need to dremel down a small bracket to keep the bottle in place, and cut a strip of mdf to prop the bottle up a few mm. It still has a slight odour, so yeah, still curing

    A work bench is not a tool, it is a work surface, it's also a bit of a requirement and as such does not get included in that statement :p

    More for Laurie,
    The lean is easy to fix when you have a sander available, belt sander would be great. I think DM is like me, currently lacking in the belt sander department.
    Old fashioned elbow grease and some course sand paper clamped to the bench will do the job, if your keen.

    Interesting comments about tools and benches.

    Quite a while ago I started looking at building my workbench. I got suckered into lots of heavy duty reading of stuff by "traditional" woodworkers and their traditional workbenches. Their comments were that the Workbench was the foundation of all that a woodworker could do. It was the most important tool in the workshop. It provided the worksurface - but far more, it provided a reference flat surface. It provided the clamps and clamping surfaces. It normally offered the vices and other hold down methods. Basically the workshop and all that happened in it revolved around that workbench.

    Of course, some went to extremes and were often relating to heavy hand tool use - where hand planes and chisels ruled and methods to hold your work piece to the bench were very much a part of the bench. If this stuff sorta takes your fancy - google "Roubo workbench" for far info on traditional workbenches than you thought possible.

    Of course, even in the age of power tools, it is still all done on the bench. I regard my workbench as the most important tool in my shed.

    And yes, Doggie - I'd strongly agree having the right tools makes doing the job easier, faster, more accurate and safer.
