Low res photo's do that to straight edges when they are at angles across the picture.

2000 Vs Ute
Took a whole range of tools out of the shed over the weekend to repair a garden retaining wall.
Must have misplaced/donated one or 2 things, but found their duplicates (string line being one of them)
And forgot how many clamps I actually had.

Then found all the paint from the previous owner, which was still good and everything is labelled as to colours and where it was used.
Really need to take a record of these colours for later on, but is definitely handy having had such a meticulous previous person in that regard.

Certainly handy having all the tools at the disposal in the shed and not having to "make do".
Will be better once said shed is extended to have the workbench all set up to not have to move anything around too.
*Did use some fancy cable tracing equipment from work to locate the Underground path as future planning.

Put together the Welding Trolley (just the cheapest Michigan one from Total Tools).
Then put the Unimig Razor 200 on it, Strapped it down for security.

Still need to buy the helmet (Lincoln from memory) and Gas to use it.
Along with the bench grinder for the tungstens.
Oh and sort out a 15amp outlet & lead, which is me being lazy.
But cant rush these things...

Ill word up the mate as i think he was trying to handball his old Bench grinder off to me anyway.
Abbott and Ashby one from memory.
Grinding wheel would just be for the tungsten and maybe sharpening drill bits.
Would grab an attachment for a belt section for cleaning up other stuff.

And nah no photos.
Its nothing spectacular.

Those linisher belt/ disc attachments you put on 1 end are great , ( I have the table for the disc as well )of the grinder are fantastic= love them /had one for years , adds options.

Edit. Abbott and Ashby are a great brand.

I had an Abott & Ashby. It was my 21st birthday present. It was great. Unfortunately someone claimed it while it was in storage at my mother's house. :(
