Re: MDF cutting problem

I'm with Mark on this one. :D

I seldom use MDF as a backing board these days because there are many and better products out there available from all our suppliers.

Re: What's everyone doing now we've got so much time to spare?

Is it just me or do others find it fascinating looking in to peoples homes when they being interviewed or pontificating on the current crisis. I find myself glued to the TV and studying the pictures on the walls in the same shot as the person. People from all walks of life are interviewed and commen...
