Hi folks,
Just found this site ad am hoping to get some useful advice on here to buy power tools and also get rough-hewn timber or logs.
I’ve been living in Costa del Sol (Southern spain) for 4 years and am retired.

I have a fairly good workshop and tend to make wooden toys, wood carvings and other suff but am suffering a bit from bronchitis and the sawdust doesn’t help.

I anticipate that buy a decent dust collector ad haves pens a lot of time looking for a supplier without much success.
I’ve more or less decided on a 2 HP 220volt single phase unit and have looked at a fox unit and a charnwood unit.
Problem is that I’ve been unable to find a up plier who will ship to Spain.
I know the Spanish people have good engineering and manufacturing skills and am fairly sure they’ll make suitable stuff here but haven’t been able to track anything down.
My brain is too old o master the language which really hampers my search.

So if anyone out there knows of a Spanish supplier or manufacturer of small scale dust extraction I’d appreciate any tips.
Alternatively someone who can and will supply from anywhere else at a reasonable cost as I’m surviving on a pension.
Thanks in anticipation

Would there be any high schools or local colleges that teach vocational skills nearby? Perhaps these would be a good place to start a conversation about where to find tools locally. Are there any local woodworking clubs or craft clubs?
