Want to say a huge thanks to Ed @CriticalTolerance for showing a few of us how to use the Tormek last night. I sharpened my hand plane blade this afternoon and then smoothed and flattened a board with it and it was so satisfying! I’ll do some more of the dodgy space chisels with it soon with my new skills.

Thank you to everyone who came to the first woodshop TLC session - the corner of the workshop we tidied is looking great!

Woodshop TLC session? Nice one!! Good work.


(Martin John Finch) #187

Wow. There’s a router table under there; who knew? Fantastic job all.

What are we going to do with the old Makita chop saw?


(Dermot Jones) #189

Thanks to @Will for tackling the broken toilet seat – and making a proper fix of it too!


(Jonty Bottomley) #190

Goes without saying… @Dermot… Legend.

Further shout out to @charlottecou and all others involved in organizing the festival this weekend.

Also @deanforbes.

Thanks to @Jonty_Bottomley for his calming and resourceful approach to tackling my laser cutter woes at 2 o’clock this morning… whilst he was also fabricating half a dalek… and with his other hand, playing the dulcimer…

Thanks to @Lesley_Hilling and @Jonty_Bottomley for your help with my Adobe Illustrator/lastercutting yesterday. I need to learn Illustrator properly.


(Jonty Bottomley) #193

Happy to help, another couple of run throughs and you’ll familiar with the various functions, keep thinking up projects and assimilating tips!


(Dermot Jones) #194

Thanks to @fincheee for hosting Wednesday’s Open Evening at zero notice!

Thanks to @Will @Jonty_Bottomley and @Valentino_Sfamurri for your constant enthusiasm and hard work on the metalwork area - very inspiring and great progress being made!


(Jonty Bottomley) #196

@CriticalTolerance for his bandsaw wizardry.


(EdwardBilson) #197

I’m doing a bit more on it tonight if you’re about. I need someone with fag papers!


(Jonty Bottomley) #198

Yeah I saw the improperly set guide bearings :wink:

Alright, we also have some feeler gauges!

Big props to Will for getting the metal lathe going.
