1. Good day all.

    I am intrested to know what tool(s) eveyone here uses to surface their spoilboard.

    I am just using a Trend 25mm dia TCT wood routing bit, but this takes a long time.

    Thanks for your time.

    Best Regards.

    I know it sounds very crude, but when I had a larger router (Magnun 1200x1500, but sold when I downsized house/garage) I made a fixed dia. fly cutter (36mm) by brazing a lathe tip onto an M10 bolt head and cut off the thread. this surfaced the table easily and cost £0.00. I may even still have, and you are wellcome to it if I can find it. G.

    Forgive my ignorance, but you can get a HSS fly cutter from rdgtools for £10 that would work on mdf wouldn't it?

  6. I did e-mail amanatool regarding there Spoilboard Surfacing tools, To find out if there was any UK dealers/resellers, and as of yet, I have not had a reply from them.

    It would be nice to know if there is a UK stockist, but more than likely we'll be as well buying direct and risk HMTB and postal charges
    seeing as buying from a UK stockist would more than likely result in Huge mark up.

    Or is that me being cynical
