Dear Neighbours, Welcome to the December edition of your Abbey-Link. Wow - December - what a year 2020 has been! Usually at this time of year I am telling you about all the venues that are hosting Christmas parties, and informing you about all our fabulous local beauticians who can all help you get ready for those parties - but sadly this year, as we know is very different. However, Christmas itself has not been cancelled and although as I write this it is still unclear as to who we will be able to see and celebrate with this year, I’m sure you will all still be buying gifts for your loved ones. So I can please take this opportunity to say - please this year more than ever - please buy local where you can. Our local businesses have been affected so much by COVID19 this year, and so having some support during this festive time would mean so much to them. Even if a shop is currently closed, many are still offering gift vouchers that you can purchase on line and then spend at a later date. A little positive news from us is that in January 2021 we are launching the NEW QUEDGELEY LINK, this has been such a difficult year for so many businesses, and so we would like to help them further - so if your customers live in the Quedgeley area please get in touch to find out how we can help you get in front of them. Please all continue to take care and keep safe, and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy and healthy New Year. Sarah.

Dave’s top tips All about jig saws Jigsaws offer the ability to make curved and straight cuts in many materials but it has to be said that, if you have much straight cutting to do, use a circular saw rather than a jigsaw. Jigsaws are not really designed for straight cuts and its much better to stick to curves or intricate work with them. Buying a jigsaw is not the same as buying a good jigsaw! Jigsaws are very versatile tools but the wrong one can make life really hard. If ever there was a case for spending a lot of money on a tool a good jigsaw is where it should be spent. With cheaper jigsaws the blade is held in by a clamp which is tightened by either a screwdriver or an allen key. The threads on the screw allow sideways movement, sideways movement in the blade means it is impossible to get a straight cut even when using a guide. Always buy a jigsaw with a blade lock and release system. It’s also important that the sole plate on your jigsaw is rock solid. The sole plate is designed to be set at different angles and just like the blade holder; this movement can be exaggerated over time leading to poor control over the blade. Cheaper jigsaws use a reciprocal cutting action for the blade. This means simply that the blade just goes up and down. Better jigsaws have a pendulum or orbital motion set into the motor which (on different settings) allows the blade to move backwards and forwards at an angle as well as up and down while you are cutting. This allows for a much more aggressive cut and at the same time, by moving the teeth away from the material, it allows any debris to fall clear of the teeth. This stops the saw from binding on the material and burning rather than cutting through it. A jigsaw needs to be powerful to maintain a decent cut. A variable speed is essential as the difference between cutting timber as opposed to Perspex needs to be about 1000 strokes per minute. If you try and cut Perspex at the same speed as timber, it just melts. Regards Dave Stevens If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself.
