1  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / collet capacity on: 28 September, 2006, 22:49
If collet capacity makes no difference to the range of diameter of cutters which can be used (which seems the suggestion in a woodworking book I've bought) what is its significance ? Is it related to the length of shank that can be acommodated or what ? Thanks, all info so far has been really helpful.

Hello forum, I am considering ordering a Dewalt 625 3hp VSE Plunge Router from the States, Are the power ratings completely different or will I just need to change the plug ? Also does anyone know if this is the equvalent to the European model DW625EK, Thanks alot , Paul.
3  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / Where to buy power tools on: 23 August, 2006, 14:03
Hello, I'm trying to locate a good retailer of power tools at reasonable prices specifically a router, do you know of any suppliers other than goughs and Mcquillans in Dublin, or elsewhere in Ireland. Would ordering from the U.K be worthwhile with delivery costs? Plan to get some wood from yourselves to test the router out! Any info much appreciated. Thanks.
4  Irish Hardwood Timber / Tricks of the trade / wood storage on: 16 May, 2006, 23:15
Hello, I presently work from and store wood in a garden shed but as space is getting tight and I have a number of boards which I won't be using for some time I'm considering storing them in my attic, is this a good idea? The floor of the attic is insulated but not the roof. Any advice much appreciated , cheers.

Hello forum, Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced (max 350) high quality router ? I made the mistake of getting a cheap one which didn't last long. Thanks.

7  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / cd-rack / furniture fittings on: 09 April, 2006, 18:36
Hello, I've been trying to fit springloaded cd-rack fittings which I purchased from a company called hafele to a cd rack and no matter what adjustments I make the cds stick and / or fail to spring out. As I have made a number of racks I'm eager to find some fittings that work. Can anyone recommend an online supplier of such fittings and funiture fittings in general. Any information much appreciated, cheers.
8  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / Making a new bevel on: 17 March, 2006, 19:48
Hello, I'm a novice woodworker and have not yet rebevelled any of my chisels or planes but as a block plane blade and chisel have nicks , i need to invest in a grinder or coarse stone to make new bevels, while I use a waterstone at present to hone my blades I'm not sure of the best equipment to rebevel , Do I have to get a grinder ? If a coarse stone , what grit/make is best? Any info much appreciated , cheers.

Thanks William , that certainly is a help, it was a bit optimistic to hope I could get a few planks from a 1 inch board , but it still seems like a waste of wood so I think for the moment I'll hang on and see what you guys come up with at the project, Could you tell me if you are open for visitors on weekends. Thanks alot.  
10  Irish Hardwood Timber / Getting started / planer/thicknessser on: 09 March, 2006, 10:13
Hello, I'm a hobbyist woodworker and one of the difficulties I've had is only being able to purchase boards at a minimum thickness of say an inch when I require 1/2 inch boards and so on. Will the purchase of a planer/thicknesser allow me to buy boards and convert them to the size I require ? For instance how many thin boards could I get from a one inch board of southern yellow pine, is there much waste? Is the planer thicknesser worth paying extra for or is buying a thicknesser and planing down afterwords the better option? How much can a good quality machine be picked up for ? Any information much appreciated , thanks
