  • Does anyone in west London have a circular saw?

    We're trying to cut a cupboard door in half to turn it into a hinged corner door and I don't think a jigsaw will cut it (pun int.).

  • Get yourself down to Argos, buy a cheap one, make your cut, take it back for a refund.....

    That's the pikey option

  • htfu

  • I could chew through it but I want a straight edge, thanks all the same.

  • Bread knife? (sorry prob. not helpful....)

  • I've got a big wood saw, otherwise HSS - there's a 24 hour one near heathrow
    I'd better not let MOC see this, he's been wanting a circular saw for ages
    I do have a mini table vice though if you want to borrow.

  • Cheers clefty. Do you mean table vice like this

    or just the vice bit?

    I suppose I could use a normal wood saw. Hmm..

  • tenon saw

  • Second one. I have a solid wooden table that doubles as a workbench that I attach it to
    I've also got a decent wood file for finishing any raggy edges, the sort that has two handles and looks like a plane
    I also have a big tenon saw.

  • Haha!

  • I do, however your location is fail.

  • West is best.

  • Quite correct.
    I am more west than you.

  • Quite correct.
    I am more west than you.

    Melbourne. I win that one too.

  • And at this present time?

  • At this present time my saws are in Mildura.

  • you might want to think it through a bit more.If you dont put two stiles at new meeting edge you will have an ugly gap where the top and bottom rails are touching and the panels will not.(sorry,impossible for me to explain more clearly)If door is a flush blank disregard this.(or disregard it anyway!)

  • Peel
    Lat = 54 degrees, 13.1 minutes North
    **Long = 4 degrees, 41.7 minutes West **

    Mildura

    **Lat = 34 degrees, 9.7 minutes South **
    Long = 142 degrees, 9.8 minutes East

    Mmmmm?

    Not quite sure what you mean. We have a normal door that won't work properly due to washing machine obstructing its swing path. Chopping it in two vertically and hinging it should allow it to move around the washing machine.

    Lies created by you lot to repress the rest of the commonwealth.

    West (London) is best. www.iomfgss.com >>>>

    The truth.. ignore the compassy bit..

  • if the door when shut is flat it will work and look ok.if the door when shut is two smaller leaves at 90degrees to each other as in a corner, it could look ugly with gaps showing, if it is a panelled door.

  • Hmm I kinda of get what you mean but since at the moment there is no cupboard door.. it can't be much worse looking.
