Excellent tutorial. I would like to use 10 x 230v 1.2w LED lamps with the same effect for staircase lighting triggered by pressure mats top and bottom. Should I use triacs to handle the extra power?
I think he meant to write "Clamps"...
So are you saying that it's some kind of slang?I'll have to remember that :)
Not true! Where I grew up, and where I trained, all the tradesmen I knew referred to them as "sash cramps" and so on. Having moved away a few years after I wrote this, I now know that was a local thing :)
awesome idea !
it is worth investing in the best tools you can afford. Often old chisels are better than new ones and they can sometimes be bought quite cheaply. I got my best chisel over twenty years ago at a car boot sale the steel has a bluish tinge to it... good steel keeps a better edge which is the secret to quality work. You will have your tools for life and they do so much for the work if it is a joy to pick them up every time.
Hello, good on you for turning people onto woodworking as a hobby! I have been a Joiner since 1985 ish and think everyone should work wood or any natural material helps ground us.A little positive feed back if you do not mind - I would warn against using a "rubber" mallet like the top photo to hit chisels. They bounce which is both inaccurate and dangerous,a wooden mallet or brass carvers mallet , even a small "dead blow mallet"will give much more control and better results.Cheers happy wood chip making Dan N
