Some possible sources for respirators and air filters:

www.axminster.co.uk
www.rutlands.co.uk
www.dmtools.co.uk

It is worth checking some other sites (both in Europe and the US) to compare prices before buying, and there are certainly other sites in the UK that may supply them too. For the air filter, look at the Jet products - I have an AFS500,  which I have found to be good.

For Record Power products, their website gives prices and resellers:

www.recordpower.co.uk

I have the DX4000, which certainly works but it is very noisy. I would recommend having a look at the cyclone option for dust collection before deciding on any particular product though - there is a lot of information on cyclones available online if you search via Google or the like.

I am looking for plans / drawings for an office desk. I hope to use Beech, if there is any reason why Beech would not be suitable, I would appreciate any tips.

I have the prototype made in ply but I want it professionally done in nice wood. The thickness of the wood is 9mm.
The Box measures approx. 9" high x 10 3/4" wide.

If you can't make them for me, could you supply me with the timber I need.
I need to make 10 of them to start with.

Thank you for your help. And I love your website, it's obvious that a lot of work went into it.

Regards
Ruth

Oops! I meant to reply to this thread but added my comment to the "Where to buy power tools" one instead by accident. Here it is again.


I've bought a lot of stuff from the US. There seems to be some limit around about 150 Euro and after that you get charged import duty.  Stuff for 120 or less doesn't seem to attract a charge. I've bought a couple of power items and you just need to make sure as someone else mentioned that it runs on 220V or is switchable to 220V. After that you can change the plug or just use a 2 pin to 3 pin adapter, which is what I do.

Hand tools used to be a lot cheaper from the US even paying the import duty, but with the Euro dropped against the dollar lately it's not so good. Also people like Axminster who used to rip you off on top quality US tools have seen the light since people started buying direct from the States. They used to charge double price for Lie-Nielsen planes but now they charge more or less what you'd pay direct if you include import duty. So make sure you tot everything up before buying from the UK or the US.

Don't forget Ebay. there are many woodworking tool and power-tool sellers on there and you can grab some great deals from the States.

Guys,

After only finding very expensive gear, does any know the Cheapest place,to get either AirPro or Power Cap powered respirators, and something similar to microclenes air filtration ( for small workshop the MC100 seems about right size. ) .

I know this gear is very important, and i am doing more and more turning, and going thru buckets of paper masks.


Im also looking for something like the Record Power Dust collection ( for dust and chip ) , the bucket/hose types, but somewhere cheaper than mcquillans !!


Thanks

Loz
