and for some reason my edging trowel vanished (I still haven't found it)...



Currently buried under a couple of tonnes of concrete?

I don't think so, but.

 

My father didn't look after his teef so well when a young fella and wore a top plate.  This archaeological artifact has been embedded in a concrete slab floor of a garage in Palmerston North since about 1968.

Another DIY addition to my man cave:

I re-purposed a 12 volt fan from a car radiator to be an overhead cooling fan in my shed. I've got a 12 volt transformer to supply the power to it. It can be pivoted around and I put two screws in to prevent it from being pivoted too far around and hitting the walls. It's a little bit noisy, but provides a nice cool breeze when I'm working in there.

 

Next project is to rig up an old kitchen extractor fan to suck air out of the shed.

If you get a blower motor controller from an older BMW it can handle the current from that fan and you can have a 5 speed fan ;)

I have just made a router top for my old Triton MK3 table saw. The router top uses the original mounts, so it is a simple job to remove it and refit the saw.

 

Top is made of two sheets of 18mm MDF glued and screwed together. Solid and rather heavy!

 

Base is 18mm ply with two fixed casters and two locking swivel casters.

 

Also fitted a vacuum and cyclone underneath to suck up the copious amounts of dust that the router creates.

 

Just added a couple of feather boards.
