Beginner advice - what tools do I need?

Re: Beginner advice - what tools do I need?

Thanks for that @ProjectPete, I had a moment and turns out I have a Makita anyway :smile:

I figured I would need some clamps and have most of that stuff, but I wasn't sure on what type of saw I'd need. I'd probably take the Circular over a drop saw to start.

@Jason Unfortunately, I'm not even at an age to be in a vets team! I was diagnosed with a chronic illness in 2016 and basically a One Day match means 3 weeks of recovery before I could play another. So I've had to pull the pin, even though I've had 25 years playing. My knees, hips, back and shoulders are all done! haha, so this will be taking up the 8 hours on a Saturday more than likely, and I can do it when it rains too.

That link looks good, I'll bookmark it and refer to it!

@Brad My old man has a biscuit joiner and offered me to borrow it, so it will be the likely solution.

I will more than likely start off with just some simple slabs in a glass finish, and hairpin legs. Most of it will be oregon and then some jarrah strips between to break it up and make it pop. So I won't be using heaps of it, just something to give it a bit of contrast and feature. Cheers for the advice on the clamps too!

Re: Beginner advice - what tools do I need?

I've recently just finished setting up my DIY car repair garage and if you're looking for general tools for car repair or anything related, you can check out the list of tools from Dig My Ride which I also used as a reference for stocking up on tools. They might be applicable for general work also so you might wanna check it out.

That certainly sounds like something many of our members would be interested in seeing. Would you like to share some images of your new DIY car repair garage as I'm sure it is very impressive? Do you only work on your own car or are you restoring anything?

 

We look forward to hearing more about your new project and what you have going on around your home and garden. We'd encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or have something to share with the community.
