    I bought a Full Boar 80T 254mm diameter fine finishing blade. Difference with the old blade is chalk and cheese. I hardly feel it go through the material. I may need a new 40T as well.

    So I bought a decent 80 tooth blade and realised... what a difference. After removing, I see my 40T has lots of chips on the teeth. The 80T goes through like butter and it joins up much better with a hairline. A bit of grey no-more-gaps helps to hide it as well.

I have tried a mitre joint and also used filler in the join, but I just cant seem to get it right. I used no-more-gaps mixed with matched paint, but it looks messy.

    I have decorative strips that are to go on top of some cabinets. See photos. The timber strips come in 2.2M lengths and I have some 2.4M runs so I have to connect two strips in these runs. As these are decorative strips that go on the top of the cabinets, I do not want to see a join. No matter how nicely I cut them, the join is obvious. (To me at least.) Because of the finish on the strips, painting them makes them look different to the rest of the cabinets. So I am wondering if anyone...

    Thought I would update this thread. Most of the house in Wattyl Estapol 7008 and did the kitchen and dining area in a water based Bona Traffic HD. The Traffic HD went on well and nicer to use, but in comparison to the Wattyl Estapol (which has been down for almost 15 years), I can already tell the Estapol 7008 is much harder wearing than the Bona Traffic. The Traffic looked scratched in no time. In fairness, it is a lighter colour and I did use some Bona White on the floor before coating...
