    That Fobco has some revs and it's only on 2 out of 3 speeds.

    I might try one of those hand vices on the cotter pins. Since the last one actually bent my 10” G Clamp.

    Possibly mate, the thread makes a lot of difference apparently.

    Has anyone fitted a kitchen with acrylic resin worktops?

    Nothing seems to touch it other than bi-metal blades, TCT blades were useless. Wondered if anything else works like diamond tip.
    Fucking horrible stuff to work with, the dust is nasty, had my respirator on for the majority of the day.

    We are advised against it when we told them I'd be fitting it.

    Sorry, I know that's no help. You using jigsaw? Bi-metal all the way, easier to manoeuvre and less chipping. I use them on laminate.

    Evolutions blades go through most things, although I've blunted works chopping bathroom laminate, the heavy, dense stuff eats blades.

    Yeah I used the jigsaw to cut out for the cooker hob. Must’ve took 10 minutes and broke one blade in the process. Used the circular saw to cut the worktop lengths.
    I think using cordless power tools compounded the problem, they haven’t got the same juice that corded ones have. The builder went to get a 240v circular saw with a bi-metal blade and that worked much better.

    It would have saved a lot of time if the instructions had mentioned some of this.

    Ramping up the search for a lathe. I struggle mentally if I have nothing to do, so planning a few jobs if I'm home for an extended period.

    It’s started. The spare time has led me to looking at vintage bicycle spanners. Brooks, Falcon, Raleigh...
    None of that pot metal shit China produces, proper Sheffield steel stuff that would probably see me out.

    I might have some '50's-'70s stuff at my mums. I'll have a look when I can visit again and see if any of it is still there, you're welcome to it if there is.

    That’d be ace Wes. I used to walk by them in second hand shops and car boots not so long ago, now they’re hiked up on eBay.

    My neighbour worked at Raleigh in the 70's and used to bring all sorts home. I had loads of new metal front badges at one time Raleigh, Rudge, Triumph etc but fuck knows if they are still there.

    All collectible now mate, there is a subculture in the cycling world that will pay big money for it. Rudge and Raleigh especially, Triumph seems to be the runt of the litter.

    Sounds about right!
    I can't remember all the brands but there was a dozen or so local manufacturers, maybe Singer was one?

    I don’t know that one but Raleigh consumed loads of small Bicycle companies. It’s quite interesting when you read into it, they were buggers, but always produced quality.

    Having purchased and chucked a number of Flymo electric strimmers, when the last one snapped and was beyond economic repair, and having a pretty large bit of land behind the house (80 metres long; 30 metres across) with mature local species hedges to sides and grotty mature conifers to a third side, I decided to buy a petrol driven hedge cutter and strimmer, both 2nd hand on Gumtree.
    The hedge cutter (a MacCulloch) is excellent and I have no problems using it (apart from the weight of it - me being Mr Matchstick arms.
    The strimmer is a different beast!
    It is an SGS and there is a harness but the harness is a pig to actually wear, and when the strimmer is attached it all feels a bit ungainly.
    Any tips on how to get the best out of this monster?

    Nah mate, a new C spanner alone costs £5 and they won’t be made from Sheffield Steel, that is a fact.

    it has nothing to do with football or NFFC
