If you think the axmisnster power tools website is good, you wanna see the annual catalogue. Power Tool heaven. Interesting enough for reading in those daily moments of deep contemplation ;), after Dinghy Sailing Magazine, Yachts & Yachting et al have been read.

IIANM One of the guys who works there is a sailor at Lyme.
The only canoe sailor in MY village too !

Who'd have thought that the relative merits of 2 glues would get so many people reading about it!

Epoxy. Balcotan would swell, and your head would explode...Mind, the fumes from epoxy could have the same effect!
