Question Dust,

What tool do you use to "clean up" or mill down your pallet wood? A planer, a jointer, a sander?  I have heard they are though on knives. Thanks.

    Best

tools i use basic kity machine centre but put a more powerfull motor in it so its faster and lessens blade sharpening but i still have to get every nail and staple out .just like a colchester lathe if you turn wood plastic even ally i do it at 5000 rpm and i use a carbide tip tool I make myself most of my turning tools i make and i braze carbide tips on they last a lifetime

Thanks Dusty.  Of course all nails and staples have to be removed. Besides the fact they would ruin you blades, they would become dangerous objects flying all around.

Since I didn't know what a kity machine was, I searched on the web and tell me is it's the machine you are talking about.

What I saw on the web is a pretty nice and complete machine. And it's compact!  I believe you are on Europe continent?  I'm in Québec, Canada.

    Best,

hi serge the k5 kity is european but as you know all parts for any machine do not come from one country? example bearings are from uk electrics are from tiawan maybe the motor housing from china ? but if you buy the name you buy the product and you sell under licence so you have bought say robert bosch bosch tools you take it apart and you got 4 countries components in that machine? true? but if you do buy a machine like i showed you? buy old not new as all there parts are cast ally  old machines are cast iron? why they are accurate they solid and they heavy unless you are the hulk? and they last you a lifetime if you do not abuse them?as to my pallets thats just for fun i get bored buy a load of pallets then spend a week denailing. may look silly if someone sees me  but i say to them hey i run outa nails so i gotta do this to get some nails? they soon shut up? i even get slates and make bird tables. black slate they throw away ok so 8x12 inch slate broken  fine i take it and produce the bird table. cost nothing only your time to make it? see pics.  anway nice to meet you serge  you have a good day if i can help you in any way or advise you no problem excepy time dii uk canada but will get back to you. Also thankyou for takin intrest in my work i appreciate that very much that people  overseas take intrest.
