I may never use the mod but it's nice to have for next to no money.

Router sounds fun.

I just ordered some fasteners. eBay came up cheaper than China, especially for M5 nuts.

It was a toss up between Danish and Tung the latter won because less time between coats. I was considering Linseed too though

Linseed is pretty heavy - just for cricket bats[Image: tongue.gif]. I was advised to use Howards Feed-N-Wax on my new Walnut squonker - works a treat.

Linseed, especially boiled linseed oil seems to take a significant percentage of forever to harden properly. Boiled linseed oil gives a reddish tinge to the wood that I'm not fond of.

Danish oil is basically diluted tung oil and should be considerably cheaper. I don't notice a lot of difference once applied between the two though. But then I'm not French polishing stuff - varnish is tougher and IMO better.

RE: What have you got on order ?
Depends on the wood , birch or other light wood i'd prefer something a bit less opaque , but on oak or Douglas fir linseed oil leaves a fine touch . My issue with linseed oil is having to immediately clean or destroy the rags .
Minwax poly shades are nice for items that will stay dry , and tend to be fairly durable . Minwax also makes Helmsman stains , a tough finish made fore marine use so incredibly moisture resistant .
In the end if i want a hard clear finnish , then out come the goves and fiberglass resin . Lots of sanding both dry and wet , but if you got the time it can result in a beautiful finish .

Why be normal when wierd is so much fun.

Good grief, you all sound like Colonial America. This is the 2010's! If it isn't 3D printed or composite, it's not cool!!!!

RE: What have you got on order ?
You only need one (good) one.

I own about 6...

About none of which are good.

If you want to measure resistance accurately then it gets spendy. The cheapest milliohm meter I know of is about £70.

I own one of them..

If you want lab grade, budget 4 figures.

A really good multimeter will cost hundreds, not tens.

I have a knackered Fluke 77 Series III and a bunch of Uni-T cheapos.

Again budget 3 figures for a good multimeter.

I have a fluke but was given it but think it cost into three figures i got it of my dad who was an electrician so assume it's a good one can't remember the model number but don't take it out of the house it's quite big and bulky, but i dare say the cheaper ones are good enough for the likes of checking batteries and simple stuff always handy to have but agree with you you get what you pay for Smile
