    Love it mate, looks great!

    I think I'll have to do something similar at home to reduce clutter and give some extra space! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Morning Phil,

    Thanks for posting mate. I think I may have the outer ends of my table a bit too high so I'll try and set them better to see if I get any better results!

    You're correct in saying...

    Hey Phil,

    Could I trouble you to send me a few pics (or post on this thread) of the infeed and outfeed tables and how they're setup? Maybe with a straight edge set up along the length and that...

    Hey there John,

    I wouldn't recommend shimming your saw blade if that's what you're thinking? That'll throw out a bunch of other things.

    I had the exact same issue with my Bosch jobsite style...

    Hi Phil,

    So from what I can see on the pics above, the new unit you've received also has the small cut out in the centre section (like mine does as per pics we've exchanged)?

  13. Sherwood 13inch Benchtop Thicknesser with Helical Head

    Hi everyone,

    Thought I'd post a review after a few months of regularly using my new thicknesser. There's very little online about these machines so thought I'd post a review and that it might...

    Thanks mate.

    The change is something I've actually been thinking about for years of working in offices and wanting to look at getting into a trade. I don't think moving to a new job or office...

    Thanks all for the feedback!

    Seems as though the consensus is that the money is the biggest consideration to take. I'm very fortunate that I bought my house years ago when house prices here in...

    I think they could be due for a sharpen, my father in law makes kitchens as 99% of his business so he rarely uses it these days, I think I use his jointer and thicknesser more than he does these...

    Hey mate,

    It is noisy yes, but I would say it's no louder than my Bosch GTS10J table saw. I would say it's actually a little quieter.
