    I have been busy,I miss doing physical things like I used to be able to do.

    i rebuilt this metal table/bench from off cuts it’s solid now.
    plus I got to use my angle grinder for the first time.

    draper files excellent, old issued hand vice superb.

    I then used wood off cuts to make more end plates so things don’t fall off the racking,cutting them on the metal bench.
    you can use your saw as a set square.
    note very old type screws had them decades.
    i then mounted the electrical extension onto the end of the bench [no photo],I am determined to do everything properly.

    Last night I put the new £15 Amazon heater on the wall.
    tricky with the Micky mouse brackets and instructions.
    its perfect it heats the room in no time and no condensation.
    ‘I am giving everything a lot of thought I lost a lot of space on the right with the bike,but don’t want anything above it that could fall and damage it.
    everything is also higher so I don’t have to bend.
    the bench is a bit high to use the vice but we will see.

    This old battered but working well snap on cabinet arrived,built like a tank.
    ive seen some beauty’s on eBay but always collection and miles from me,this was posted.

    i washed it with soapy water,then white spirit,then with foam wash it was filthy.

    i decided to take the top of without damaging it if possible,you lose a lot of racking if you open the lid.

    it wasnt easy it’s made to last you can’t see the hinges when closed.
    standing out in the rain I gave it a good shot.
    i started the bar moving [eventualy] with a thin nail,then worked it with WD40.
    i then used my new pliers to grip it and worked it out using a rubber mallet,horay I was chuffed when I succeeded.
    i then drilled the lid stay rivets it can be put back if I want.
    now I’ve probably to mutch storage for tools so other stuff is going in.

    i feel a sense of achievement today I enjoyed the small challenges.
    I was tired though and fell asleep in the chair when I got it,like an old git

    Knipex pliers they are superb get some [lots of choice]
    makita drill £100 from screwfix absolutely superb just the right weight for my knackered hands the first battery’s only just run out today.

    Looks fantastic John (although planet rock may be a better station)

    I had folded you some soft jaws (that I guess are no longer needed) but what are you doing with the snap on box (I have some draw removal tools somewhere and you can get the correct "snap on" coloured paint)


    Also, as heat rises the heater may be more effective if dropped as low as it can be

    I wouldnít mind the jaw protectors,the thin ones Iíve got keep falling off.

    ive taken the lid of the snap on toolbox [see pics above].

    i put the heater there after a lot of debate with myself,I didnít want to bend down to the switch.

    i May change it if I can get the leccy round.

    i was on planet rock this afty I go from mellow to banging my head.

    Tonight she looks like this,ive used the off cuts to make a shelf for the radio using the tongue and grove and other little things.

    ive put down a rubber mat from screwfix.
    inbetween little jobs I stripped,cleaned and greased 2 of my ratchets cleaned up some tools and generally just pottered about

    i found my tax disc still in its holder for my SP370 removed in 1980

    the mines sign is of a big batch I took into central Mostar,
    while they where still killing anything that moved [didn’t get me did you Croatians,had a go though].
    I was alone,unarmed and unescorted it was a bit hairy.i gave the one I had with bullet holes to a yank.
