Re: Nothing In Particular

Before I decided to give up making speakers I was considering buying a BS250 Record Power bandsaw. Worth checking out their range https://www.recordpower.co.uk/category/bandsaws I did look at the BS250 but the reviews I read were not great... All the manufacturers show a huge lack of originality in...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Anyone know anything about bandsaws?

My old Axminster little one just failed (one of the wheels broke)

So, upgrade time. I am considering the Charnwood b250 or the Lumberjack BS254.

Open to ideas about other alternatives.

Thoughts appreciated.

Re: Nothing In Particular

When we first me, my wife had a Fiat Panda.

It was a disgrace. Two years old and you could push a finger through the wings. Complete rust-bucket.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Now have workshop wall rendered (damp proof admix) and sealed with two coats off Zinsser WaterTite - lovely stuff but a bitch to apply as it's like custard and expensive so the temptation is to spread it out, but you mustn't do that... Had to wait 5 weeks for render to completely dry and cure before...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Well, I never knew you had an oast, Nick ? Indeed - been here about 25 years now. Pretty much demolished (completely gutted) it 15 years ago and rebuilt and massively expanded as carbon-neutral with ground-source heats pumps, integral thermal store, underfloor heating etc. Looks old (the core is ea...

CV4003 / ECC82 types...

Anyone here have experience of different types of ECC82, specifically why are the mil boxed versions (CV4003) by Brimar and Mullard so much more expensive than the standard Philips ECC82s...? Internally, they're supposed to be identical...

Re: uTracer 400V upgrade kit available...

I killed my utracer a long time ago now. Decided to enquire from Ronald about a new 400v one built by him. But he came back offering to repair mine free. He truly is the most supportive inventor / supplier I’ve worked with. But I’ve replied asking him to repair and update mine, but I told him I wan...
