    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.
