    Had to share this with you all. During lock down I have been building a shepherds hut, its coming on quite nicely and about a week ago I mentioned to father, I am gonna need a planer to flatten some floor boards, meaning I was thinking of a small one from somewhere like screwfix, I had a bit of a shock today :owhen father picks up a beast of a planer. :doh:

    _DC20299.JPG _DC20300.JPG

    I said to father how am I going to move it about, he said you got a forklift haven't you, ha ha. So I had it tempory wired up this afternoon and its a beast. It scared me to death when it finally got up to speed especially the cutter block sound like a plane starting.

    Its an old Sagar thicknesser dont know how old it is, but it will do what I need to do and more

    Just got to love parents eh.:laughing:

    I love that valve lapping tool! Never seen one like it before. If you're going to sell it let me know please.

    Little Human was Over the moon when I said she could take the balls home. I have a picture of her carefully holding the box and her cuddly toy being proudly carried to the car.

    You could have made her some Clackers!
