Re: Morso nightmare

When i was struggling with mine, an engineer asked me to do this test. Lock the blades in the bottom/hidden position. Move the blades to the front position (as for the final cut). Grab the top of the blade assembly with both hands, at the top left and top right and try to wiggle it. If there is move...

Re: David Million checking in for first time

Hi David, If it's a foot operated underpinner that you're looking for, I would say that you can't go wrong with a Cassese CS88. I started with a shiny new CS1 and passed it on as soon as I could. The CS88 is a far superior design and the results just don't compare. You can pick one up in the low hun...

Re: Here's a The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from me!

That looks great Matt! You're much further ahead than me with this sort of hand-finishing technique. I'd be interested to know what others would price this out at? I'd second the Morso. From time to time eBay is flooded with them, they can be had for £400, but factor in a new set of blades for £200 ...

Re: Cutting ash on morso

Do a search for "morso set up - thanks", it will talk about tweaking the left fence a tiny bit, which can solve this issue. Also, I discovered that my long rule wasn't actually straight enough for this purpose. Eventually I bit the bullet and bought an engineers straight edge (yes £50!!!) but it mea...

Re: Cutting ash on morso

Are you taking small bites, little by little and making sure that the last cut is the smallest finishing cut?
If all else fails, the best filler for Ash I have found is Ronseal multi Purpose wood filler "Natural".
How are you joining it? (good luck with an underpinner...)

Re: Large needlecraft

I would attach a piece of cotton rag board to a piece of 5mm foam board with EVA glue and lace it with the rag board facing the back of the work.
I wouldn't adhere it, unless the customer insisted, but I'd still advise against it.

Re: Table saw, best blade moulding cutting?

80 teeth is the sweet spot apparently. Best quality you can afford and as said before, always wider blade than the riving knife.

Re: Customer Consultations via Zoom.

@steve N Yes, it's all possible, that was my original point to Mark, about injecting some optimism back into it all. I have done quite a few consultations on Whatts App messaging too, as photos and videos can be included in the chats and it is end to end encrypted, so totally secure. The only downsi...

Re: Mouldings getting dented

Mark at Underpinnerspares.co.uk sells a white rubber "Tri Clamping pad", have a look in the CS88 section of spares. It has a funny shaped top, which i just cut off and glued to the metal clamp base. Its very soft and distributes the pressure better for softer mouldings than the L shaped felt pad.

Customer Consultations via Zoom.

Hi All, Mark has asked if I would like to give a run down on how I have completed some customer consultations over Zoom. He is right in thinking that laptop webcams are often not as good quality as desktop webcams. One customer foresaw this and arranged the meeting for a time when he could be on the...

Im sorry Mark, but I have to share some optimism. I completely disagree with you about Zoom, but I guess it depends upon the quality of your webcam and your mobile phone. Of course colours aren't always rendered perfectly,but we should be able to instill some confidence in customers minds,that we do...
