    Another here cautious about the longevity of a glue bond in that situation Matthew. There'd be quite a bit of stress cycling going on what with moisture content changes and temperature, so it might...

    Another here (presuming no need to tie in with other surfaces) of the high table tendency. Mine is only 37in (basically because that's as high as the legs on the Incra cabinet frame go) and I'm 6ft...

    HI David. That's good to know. Coming from an engineering background i have to say that i looked long and hard at the possibility of a vernier gauge, but in the end concluded i didn't have enough...

    :) Tee hee. I'd missed the meaning of the 'rising' part in your mention of a dovetail Brian. It'd be the ultimate in 'looks right' joinery in the situation though!

    I've a sneaking feeling i'm...

    I guess in one sense the whole point of these benches is overkill!

    All due respect Warren, but that was said - that through tenons (actually tenon and dovetail) are fine with no high stretcher.

    I probably wasn't clear Brian (trying just to figure the pros and cons of some diffrent layouts), but as yourself i was suggesting the dovetails are one option with high rails/stretchers (blind...

    Hi Curt. Sorry, just saw yours now. I'm not an authority in that i'm just starting my own bench build - but i'd be cautious about using a simple lap joint in place of the dovetail where the outer...

    I can't remember the numbers, but I've had a pallet over before and it's not bad at all. Of the order of a few $100s. Tax is perhaps the bigger issue at 21%. At one point I thought seriously of...

    It seems unlikely that there isn't a market Kent - plenty are happy to pay for machines at the Hammer/Felder level for example.

    It's got problematical over here - the traditional refrain of 'keep...

    It seems Kent the further we get from home the greener we get - but definitely on the Guinness. There's a substantial 2nd or 3rd generation Irish American population though that still thinks we're...

    :) I wouldn't know Kent. I'm not a rugby buff (boarding school killed that off), but it came as something of a surprise as they were unexpectedly beaten by Wales the week before. We seem to be one of...

    I guess one benefit of the exposed through dovetail might have been that a leg vise ended up bearing against a single/continuous length of material (the leg) which is also well supported by the top -...

    I'd missed that Lee Valley had the Gramercy holdfasts, and that they recommended a 20mm hole in an 1 3/4 to 2in thick bench top as being OK. Grammercy...

    Don't know if it's intended but the two blade gauge while marginally less convenient to set can be used as as a single blade gauge too. The lower blade retracts into the opening in the fence provided...
