I had an aircon 'engineer' turn up at my house some years back who then had to go all the way back to base to collect some ladders.Seems like a normal procedure for some firms. i called to check on a scaffolding for a disabled client only to find the scaffolding guys had driven from Weston s mare to Chippenham only to find they didn't bring any planks . I suggested they buy a couple from the local builders merchants but they said they had to go back and would be there the next day. I made Bl***y shure the price for the job didn't increase.
Looks good.Stripped and fixed my charity shop vice today. It's a bloody heavy old lump!
Brought my old Meddings drill up from the barn and took off the surface rust on the beds, it still runs fine thankfully. I almost did myself a mischief lifting it up there, must be more the 50KG? It's so old it doesn't have a starter so I better get that sorted. Bolted everything down to the bench, what fun. Need to find a reasonably priced big vice for that one, they are £100 new for a half decent one!
Found a bench grinder in the rubbish at work, just had a faulty switch but otherwise brand new with fine grinding wheels just right for tungsten I hope. The other one is my old sealey with course wheel and wire wheel. I put them both on a big lump of wood so I can pull them out to use and push back out the way again, I would lose too much bench space otherwise.
Argon bottle back against the wall behind my metal table, also recovered from the barn. Is it ok to have the bottle close to the table?
Going to build a Dexian shelf unit tomorrow to go left of the bench and I should then have enough space for all my welding etc.
May put my compressor under the bench as well, seems like a good out of the way spot?
Will also put up some temporary lights over the bench area, the house is not complete yet so I'm running on an extension lead....
More to do tomorrow!

Plus a few Brownies points for you.My parents car. 1999 Clio II.
Been running rough, plugs and ht leads connections.
It was an easy diagnosis, if you lean on a ht lead, it runs sweet, probably a crimp with some pliers, would have done it.
New leads and plugs 25 squid in euros, no.3 was loose, no.1 was different to the other sparkplugs?
Slightly more difficult to get to, and they didn't bother, and ignored it.
Battery died in the cold snap last week.
£120 quid of bits including a set of windscreen wipers, battery plugs and leads.
I'm not saying i have cabin fever but yesterday the freezer drawer refused to come out, and after a split seconds loss of reason there were bits of freezer drawer all over the floor. I've just plastic welded it back together.
Was down your way last week loading out of the auctions at Madley, plenty of tasty looking ex-MOD ramps that would sort that out.
