The dash repairs turned out very well Rian and look like they’ll need next to no filler, which is always a good thing ��

Absolutely, I guess the glued joints were rotten on the old belts, the new ones have no joins.

Minor is a clever build.

Welder made the difference. It’s a great machine for sure.

Thanks Ian.

I think the trick is steady and slow.

Prozac to the rescue.

Saw this in a skip on Sunday.



After work Monday I managed to get it for £10.00 after getting the driver to put the skip on the ground again and help me get it out and loaded into tbe van.



Unloaded back home.

Needs a clean up and paint.

Better welding table than the one I have.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

It is galvanised too.

Materials would be a load, plus time and effort for,prepping

Think I did good.

Postage would be a killer.

I am very pleased that pride is not part of my make up..




Sunday Bootfairs X2

My best day to date.

Random stuff, more than half for other people, but I scored a few nice bits too.

Most expensive was a £2.00 wooden Christmas tree that I would not bother making myself.

Two dog jackets for Dennis’ dogs, £1.50

When I got home and saw the price tags, I had to laugh.

We’re £7.00 each, marked down to 20p each somewhere in the past.

Ooooppps.



My one of two favourites, as I like smaller miniature stuff.

50p



Check the date in the front.



Bought an old cutthroat, really bad condition for £1.00

And a Sabatier knife for 20p

Cleaned the knife, sharpened up and used last night.... what a beauty.



Stuff I kept for myself, also with Christmas tree and frog cushion.
