    Recommend nice flexible shop vac hose?

    Iíve got a ryobi shop vac that I use for my orbital sander, trim router, etc.

    The hose that came with the ryobi is very stiff and annoying. Iím looking for something that is:

    Yes thanks for reminding me. New table mount sent and this one is square. Although the clamp for the table has been bored off centre (see image) but I donít this is an issue.

    Just realised that there are two types of yellow tongue - standard and termite treated (h2). I'm on the central coast (north of Sydney), should I be getting the H2 stuff? Or is standard fine?

    Yep string lines were good. But I think I ultimately struggled to work with them effectively. A few things tripped me up:

    Yeah sorry didn't explain very well.

    This was simply based on my reading of lots of other posts on here. From memory it helps prevent twisting of the joists and since Iím not putting in floor insulation I didnít need the height.

    Joists are down and level and now looking at getting the yellow tongue. I realised Iím not 100% on how to secure it down.

  15. How big a hole to vent a DC located inside the shed to the outside?

    Update: mostly fixed. I've got everything to within about 1mm according to the laser. Next step is to run a straight edge and check for anything more than 1mm and do small adjustments.

    Yeah I think I over did it on that front. I got 100mm anchors as some of floor was 40mm lower. So I figured that would work out to only 25mm of anchor in the ground (100-40-35). But then it meant for...

    yep will just have to wait and see how it goes with movement.

    I’ve laid down a thick plastic sheet and used H3 pine. So hopefully all good on the moisture and termite front!

  23. Drilled clean through garage floor slab - am I in trouble?

    All very good points, thanks everyone. I was also leaning towards mdf for cost and stability. I was also recently told about getting free face sheets from cabinet makers so going to give that a go.
  25. What material to use for various TS sleds and jigs?

    I've watched the obligatory 1000 videos on various cross-cut sleds, tapering jigs, etc. Every American one is using baltic birch ply. Then Woodknight uses form ply a bit. However, I can't recall...

    Will have to see what he says. I think the conduit is small though. Itís also very old (mid 80s) so I would rather just run new conduit if it comes to that than mess with the existing one.

    Fair point, thanks BobL.

    It's just me at home using the shed. As you say, I'll only be using two big machines (dusty + tables/bandsaw/etc). So max use at any one time:
