Re: Why do we make through tenons these days ?

I dont know if it was a Festool Domino or not. I am not sure about that - I would think the grain running through would resist some twisting more than a loose tenon / domino. Also how many old windows and doors do you find where the glue has all but gone but the door / window is still held together ...

Re: Why do we make through tenons these days ?

I made some internal Georgian window shutters recently. I was in a bit of a rush so was going to make them like a kitchen door with a scribe and mould profile....you know the ones...no tenon,.. just relies on the glue on scribe / mould and rebate. However as they were only 17mm thick I thought I wou...

Re: H&S in commercial Workshops

I bet every machine has a bible to go with it now in your workshop ! Did you have to pay them out yourself, or did your insurers ?

Presumably also the claim would have been against your company, not you individually.

Thank for this , it does look like a nightmare.

I'm glad I dont need to employ people, sounds like a complete nightmare.

This must come up all the time. Joiner wants apprentice / staff....cant because machines don't comply etc.

Re: Whitehill Block (old style)

AH yes I see what you mean now !

I suppose that is a big advantage of the euro cutters that you can match them directly to the profile as they are almost straight out the block. I didn't realise the white hill blocks are as such an angle.

Thanks for taking the time to explain all this

Re: Curved Mouldings

Thanks for the reply and sending the pics. Makes sense now ive seen the picture.

Does it not make the profile a bit off if you know what i mean, as when you turn the wood, face on it will distort abit ?

P.S - Those curved sashes in your pictures look amazing. Do you get curved glass too ?

The capacitor did not work , it does the same thing and won't start with tension on the pulley.

I think I have just worked the motor too hard and its given up :(
