  1. I've spent a small fortune at Lee Valley this year, and my wish list is still quite lengthy! Just placed my latest order yesterday. Gotta love quality tools!!!
  2. Probably a good decision Eddie - just make sure you check out what blades are available for the one you choose as that will be the determining factor in your re-saw capability.
  3. Hi Eddie, I have the Carbatec 10" Bandsaw. It's okay for what it is, but it is quite limited in terms of the blade options available. For example, you won't be able to any re-sawing (I think that's the correct term) with it. If I were buying again, I'd save my shekels and go for the Laguna 14" SUV Bandsaw. Regardless of which bandsaw you buy, you should check out this YouTube clip of how to set up a bandsaw properly:
  4. Congratulations on yet another fine build Danny. I'm sure your grandson will be delighted.
  5. Eddie, I have the Jet OSS (also purchased from Carbatec) and have been very happy with it.
  6. Congratulations on another fine effort Bug. Your wife must be very pleased.
  7. Always interested to follow your Woody Joe builds Clare. This looks like another nice model.
  8. Druxey, Would you please PM me Mihail's email address too? I don't think I can resist these much longer!
  9. Now you just need to buy a "spare" motor Ken, and then you'll be able to have both machines set up permanently!
  10. Glad to hear that you're on the way home Michael. I look forward to seeing you back at the bench in due course but don't rush the recovery - we'll still be here when you're ready.
  11. Thanks Ian for letting us know. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Michael.
  12. I'm going over to Michael's house to play!
  13. Merlin, the new Shipyard Superintendent, reported for duty yesterday. 8 week old Black Labrador.
  14. Daniel, I don't know about "free" ones, but TurboCAD for Mac is very good and is relatively inexpensive.
