I didn't hide mine either.

It's on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'beware of the leopard'... cheeky

Douglas Adams has a lot to answer for ,but has it occurred to anyone that the book may have been read by a person of female persuasion?

You can also get Gorilla Wood Glue that is white and dries a natural colour. is water resistant and for a litre bottle, it only costs £12.50 with free delivery. It has the same glueing power as the brown Gorilla glue and seems to be a better deal.

Interestingly I notice the 'captive' nut on my sander in actually captive - I can see it moving around as I rotate the sander. I have not turned it completely upside down though, just in case!

Tried it out on a couple of built up balsa wings (Bambino) to tidy up the ends. Wow! perfect job. Next I need to make up a suitable spacer so that I can machine the tapers on the ends of my wooden arrows for the Piles and Knocks.

Only unboxed mine today and yes, the nut dropped inside. Easily fixed. Made up a rough guide to reshape my thoroughly abused chisels which worked a treat, only a little work required with a honing guide and sandstone.

This machine is quite happy free standing and much easier to use than the old Clarks one.

Haven't tried it yet, but forgive me if this has already been asked: what's the best source of 115mm sanding discs in various grades, preferably self-adhesive? Those supplied are too coarse for my purposes, and I'd like discs from 400 to 1200 grit.

I think I am going to face the wheel with fine Velcro so I can use the hook and loop ones used for car body work.

They are different types of Glue. The Wood glue appears to be aliphatic, The brown glue is a foaming polyurathane type adhesive.

Both are very good and have their (different) uses in the shed.

Hi

Interesting, is there space for this? I think it would be a handy idea as I already have 125mm Velcro discs for my orbital sander. Where can you get the right size Velcro to enable an even disc to be cut so as to avoid balance issues on the shaft?

I've come across the Velcro system, but wouldn't it create a degree of squashiness? I'd want the disc to be rock solid, for clean squared-off sanded surfaces. A quick search on Ebay uncovered 125mm self-adhesive discs for sale, 400 grit, £4.89 for ten - that would do for a start though I'd like very fine grit too.

I guess there must be some slight squish or spring with hook and loop but is it enough to worry about, maybe a fraction of a mm if using micro tape? Thing is you shouldn't need to press too hard with balsa if you take it slowly or else it'll slow the disc and start scorching.

Ply could be pushed slightly harder which should take up the spring in the backing without any perceptible or significantly variable difference.
