Re: Solitaire

I find Lip & Spur bits good for clean holes however the quality varies hugely. Drills from Wealden have much wider lands and become my favourite. I go nowhere near Chinese ones now Wealden sell them individually in 1mm steps up to at least 20mm. Bob Sorry that does ...

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

Lip and spur drill bits can be of very dubious quality but I've found the ones sold by Wealden singly are superb. Well ground and with wider lands than many, they cut very well. And you can buy just the ones you need. Bob I'm mightily surprised you don't convert ordinaires ...

Re: Small workshop

... depth of cut and I think you want to go through 11mm OSB? In any case having a longer cutter might help on future jobs by being more versatile. Wealden tools are another very well reputed supplier of router cutters with excellent customer service. Bob

Re: How Good are Biscuit Jointers

The bulk of the material was trimmed off with a straight 12mm rebate cutter, but the final cut was made using a Wealden 6mm spiral down cutter which leaves a far superior edge.

Re: When is an ovolo not an ovolo ?

When it comes to router cutters and spindle knives I tend to go for the diagram rather than a name. In the case of your wealden illustration, isn't simple a matter of the bearing size realtive to the bottom of the left hand cutter that either gives the profile in your upper picture ...

Re: Drop-in router table

... we go. I am indebted to Steve Maskery who told me this approach. First you need a top-bearing guided cutter. This is a nice chunky one from Wealden. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1877/43375863465_6ddb456d19_c.jpg First position the router table top where you want it. I originally was going ...

The reverse; there are loads of different factories in the Far East (Chiwanese) that make machinery. Much of Ax's stuff (for example) is made by a number of different suppliers in far flung locations - Rob

I’ve put them to the test again though I sent in the order on Sunday. Hopefully should receive the cutter tomorrow Tuesday. It’s for a 10mm straight cut, unfortunately I’ve got a WoodRat one but it’s too tall for my current purposes. I also ordered a Forstner bit from Workshop Heaven so it will be i...

Re: Raised fielded panels in ???
