    Gooday people,
    Just starting off scrolling. Making solid toys for children is my aim. Have made a few. A group of around 30 blokes are in the process of starting a Mens Shed here in Bordertown. Shed will be 30 feet by 80 feet - with plenty of room to double that if required. No woodworking clubs anywhere near and travelling is the main problem. Hooray for the internet.
    Will no doubt be asking lots of questions later when I get down to it.
    Have one now. Is JET a good drum sander - think the model is 16-32 ??? Suggested price ??
    Stationary.

    Welcome to the group! Lots of good people here to answer questions and give helpful advice.

    I don't know squat about the Jet drum sander, but I'm sure someone will jump in and give an opinion.

        None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

        What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
        The bags seem easier on the surface.
        But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

        Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

        As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

        I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
