Re: Free tools saved from the skip.

I love looking in skips, It really is sad what ends up getting thrown out as rubbish but i collect so many random types of stuff i have to be selective what i can keep. :oops:

Re: Inverter weldering and welder

Online order? i did not see that Lidl had an online order for the UK, That would be good as my local Lidl never has many of the offers in stock.

From reading his many "it's never the coil" comments, Maybe a nice mounted coil would be fitting.

Re: Inverter weldering and welder

Pricing across europe varies with many companies but the Uk always seems to have a higher price, I have a regular problem with Screwfix not having offer prices on items that are way cheaper on mainland EU and als Eire.

Re: Is there going to be a trophy in memory of Roy Bmc Ecosse

With more than 50,000 posts on just this site it would be nice to see something to mark his memory, Maybe the blue plaque scheme will intoduce a catagory for people who have been helpful in the cyber world.

Nice price for an inverter, I know it is not a brand name but very portable.

Re: Trafficators with indicators

Yes that would be a good set up not being able to lose an eye or break anything, The standard trafficator bulbs are quite dull so i want to fit LED bulbs, I have seen the flshing ones but i will be happy with just something brighter.

Re: Classic car meeting near Kidderminster

Another great event with cars is http://www.shelsleywalsh.com/ if you are in the Kidderminster area it is just past Stourport, I will be struggling to get there this year due to being involved in care, If you do get to Shelsley on a breakfast club day you get to see plenty of rare cars.

Re: Got a few grand to spare??

I have an eye for the 1969 Wolseley 16/60 Saloon on that site, Those A60 and A55 looking motors appeal to me and this A110 westminster countryman with a small period caravan would be nice for weekends away.

Re: Where does one stand...?

If you go for CCTV just stand where it happened and do a full 360 spin as you may be on CCTV that is not low down or easy to see then you can ask the owners of it for help, The problem is that the CCTV may be hard to obtain if they stick to the data protection act, but normally they will give it to ...

Re: LOST 1963 MORRIS TRAVELLER

Cracking result, it would be a great thing to get back a family car after many years, I would love my mom and dads old van but it sadly ended up in a scrap yard.

Re: Trafficators with indicators

Thanks both, I think 2 seperate systems would be better to save the trafficators from gettting broken or poking me in the eye as it nearly did, I have a big box of switches and relays to make something up with but those trafficator switches look a nice period part.
