I guess. If you like wasting money. Otherwise just get a cheap knock off which does the same thing.

Re: Revenge of What book are you reading at the moment?

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02651/Luminaries_cover_2651971a.jpg Thought I had better give this a go. It's ok, I'm not really a fan of period drama. I find the astrology stuff with each chapter shortening by half pretty gimmicky. Although it does mean the pace is picking up.

Re: Tool time...

Yeah you can get pretty fucking deep into it eh. If you know how to weld a 2 x 72 seems pretty straight forward to make. Rip a variable speed motor out of an old treadmill and get some cheap skateboard wheels and you're pretty much set. I was looking at getting one of these just for shaping handles ...

Re: Tool time...

I bought a second hand Masport 4 years ago for $180 and it's still going hard. The timing was always a bit fucked and I've only changed the oil once but it still does good job.

I love doing the lawns. Something really satisfying about it.

Thanks man, I'm finding out it's a lot harder to do without the proper tools though. I'm missing having a properly set up workshop. This guy, Richard van Dijk, makes some of the nicest stuff in NZ I reckon. He made swords for Weta Workshops for The Hobbit and regually sells knives for over $5000 a p...

I've been slowly building up my tool collection over the last few years. I love being able to fix/make shit and learn new skills at the same time. Makes me appreciate even more some of the amazing craftsmanship out there.

Re: Tool time...

I bought a drill recently. I don't know what sort of drill it is but I bought a whole box of drill heads from really big ones down to really tiny ones you could drill a hole with that you could barely stuff a solitary pube down. I'm using any excuse I can find to drill holes in things. Recently I d...
