    As far as I'm concerned they're interchangeable. I use a Lortone 3A, and it's been going strong for nearly 20 years with a couple of changes of belt (which cost pennies). It's sold as a rock tumbler,...

    Hi Clare - I've used plenty of these and they work just fine. I used to make my own, but in honesty, these cost so little that it really isn't worth it! You do need to make sure your chain or cord is...

    I've recently switched to a water mist type extinguisher - which was recommended to me by a firefighter my husband knows. Apparently it's the best broad spectrum option now. I previously had a foam...

    Have you tried W J Sutton? https://www.925jewellery.co.uk/ - good prices and a pretty wide range - not always using the same chain names though, so it takes a bit of ploughing through to find what...

    I do the vast majority of my work by hand (including most drilling), but it might be helpful to add here that I have an SR and a Marathon Micromotor (couldn't afford the Foredom!). I don't think I've...

    Just popping back to apologise for being so dense. I'm not very well at the moment, and one of the symptoms is a bit of brain fog, which means I'm not as quick to pick up on things as I might...

    I love them both Dennis! I'm very much a water baby, so anything that takes my head to the sea will always appeal.

    You don't 'have' to get an implant - a bridge or denture will work just as well and cost a great deal less, especially if it's not in a particularly visible place.
