  1. Blimey what a cool discussion I'd screw up some bog roll and soak it in paint. Screw it into a ball and break out the catapult
  2. My thicknesser is a 10" jobbie. So I'm going to be 2 piece bodying (I was intending on neck throughs anyway ) At this size you get "portable" ones(they weigh a tonne). Once you start to get bigger than this then you're into the realm of floor standing units. This is way out of my league due to budget and most importantly my workshop being on the 3rd floor of my house. Hold on, I'll find a link to the little beauty. EDIT: Here you go... http://www.nutool.co.uk/ProductCatalogue.a...ing%2FMachinery I also got the bench jointer
  3. I've got to go with woman. I'm not very good at playing guitar.... .... But I am good at playing with the missus I wouldn't swap my missus even for "Lucille". Oh, being a nice guy does work, you've just got to know when she wants you to be naughty

    Jet

    Sucked ass when they played at Glastonbury. Absolute dog toss. Aparently they had a row before going on stage (that'll make a change then ) As for Jet - yeah, they're alright. Unoffensive anyway. As for the comments about music today being of the brown and squidgy variety.... .... well as long there was music, there was always crap. Look at the 60's - plenty of good music but then there was Lulu and Cilla Black, honest to god Cilla goddamn Black. Take the 70's and Donny sodding Osmand etc etc. There are plenty of decent bands now: Kings of Leon Snow Patrol (wasn't really
  5. Tell you what, if it's not gone by pay day I'll have it. Don't worry about it if someone else jumps in and has it because I haven't started the project that will need it yet. I'd prefer someone to use it instead of it sitting in a box at my house until I need it. Pay day is in 3 weeks BTW
  6. I had a very fun and relaxing time. Unfortunately I have never been able to spend Christmas with the missus as she goes to her family and I go to mine My dad had his first [four] days off in 5 months, but my mum was working Christmas Eve night (finishing at 7am Christmas morning) but once that was out the way the party commenced and all four of us (inc. brother) got absolutely panned. It was nice to have the whole family together again. New Year was OK but a bi of a downer. We (girlfriend and I) were supposed to go over to the National Chopper Club clubhouse with a few of our big ha

  8. cash is king Indeed it is How much? What currency? And I'm in the UK BTW - mind shipping this far?
  9. Would you trade for........ .......cash (chi-ching)
  10. Well I'm back at work today, got in this morning and my bandsaw has arrived over the holidays It's only little but I hope that it should do the job (if I'm careful with it). Over the holidays, I was intending on building a workbench, so I went to the DIY shop and tried to buy the stuff. Unluckily though, they no longer have the facilities to cut wood to length so that I could fit it in the girlfriends tiny car . In the end I had to buy a flat pack workbench, which is very cheep and cheerful but it should do the job (once I put a vice on it anyway). I've also taken over a set of dra
  11. Drak, Have a set up something like this: http://www.mikesguitarsite.co.uk/gear/pink...hp?page=effects That's more than enough buttons, even for me
  12. Most of the new tools arrived this morning - Thicknesser, Planer/Jointer and pillar drill. Got two problems though: 1) I think I over estimated how much space there is in the spare room This will take a rethink and a bit of moving stuff around. I'm definately going to have to build a work bench (or preferably a shed) 2) The thicknesser came in about 20 parts. Mainly due to the massive hole in the side of the box causing the on/off button box to be shattered. There is also something big, metal and yellow floating around by the mechanism so I don't think I'll turn it on. Well ac
  13. Jon Bell who is on the board occasionally sells pups with a vaneer over the top of the bobbin. Hold on I'll find the link http://www.swinesheadpickups.com <--- Not boxed in but they look tasty
  14. No worries, it's probably a good job that my pillar drill didn't arrive yesterday like it was supposed to then Cheers for not letting me hurt mysef
