  1. That is a lot of money. I put a set of tyres on one a few years ago for a collector, the very one that did the shows. For some odd reason he had it resprayed which was a shame as you could just make out the original Ford TW30 decals shadow. Reckon in its original paint it would have been way more collectable/valuable πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ TW35
  2. I'm always relieved to see that it's DPD delivering πŸ˜„
  3. I was using the stove exactly as directed by the user manual and it just popped in front of my very eyes. Can I please now have a new one foc and I'd like a free gift to recompense me for the inconvenience πŸ˜†πŸ˜‹
  4. Junk shops & car boot sales are a good source of good quality old tools. Add the metric bits from ebay etc and the really common ones are worth buying new. 18 mm A/F is odd, knowing the age and country of origin is often a guide πŸ˜‰
  5. I'm trying to remember how long ago I first saw an Engcon tilt rotator working at the SED. There did seem to half a dozen of us who spent half of the day watching it and trying to find out what it was πŸ€”πŸ˜…
  6. I'm amazed that any reputable supplier would even load a vehicle so grossly overloaded. I wonder if they run transport and hold an operators license πŸ€”
  7. Could try a Gunson type pressure bleeder, but connect to the bleed nipple and back bleed (it's the way some machines are filled on the production line) πŸ˜‰
  8. Would shear legs work here?
  9. I am so politically correct I'm pretending I haven't a clue what you're on about πŸ€”
  10. Horrible stuff for splinters, the body doesn't like it up'em 😑
  11. Not at all sure I believe that a thousand sites planted 350,000 trees each eitherπŸ™„
  12. Absolutely hurling it down 😝. School holidays started 4 hours ago, it's rained for all of it so far, last year they got half a day before it started πŸ˜•. Going to be quite hard to sell outside work to the younger generation 😯
  13. I bought a digger from Andrew Wilkins a few years ago, not the cheapest dealer but I've never regretted buying from him πŸ˜πŸ‘
