    Eye protection is essential as you've said mate, hell I even had my young fellas wear safety glasses even though they were watching from several metres away.
    Mate you know me I'm not exactly a safety nazi but those things are death lol

    That one is a adaptor kit to a std multi tool
    linisher, $300 extra but worth it. I have recently
    converted to ceramic belts, much win. I am considering
    I proper work center type deal but that wait for now.

    I got an Abbott n Ashby one last year for $380 ish including the Linisher. Single handedly the most used tool in the shed. The wire wheel is ace for cleaning bolts, but i recommend using pliers to hold them. Sucks balls big time when ya finger runs into the wirewheel.

    I changed my std linisher into this one via a kit


    And this is the 6", white for high speed steel, green for carbide and tungsten.
    If I catch anyone using anything else on those wheels I'll break their fingers.....

    So there I was partaking in my
    Bi-yearly grass mowering. When in a shower of glowing hot metal my cutter deck belt tensioning pulley decided that 30years hard time was more than enough. It was found dead on the seen. It's roller bearings lifeless stained blue, like still warm carcasses ready to rot in the hot sun. Testament to the shear vicious ruthlessness of the dark overlord "friction"......... Maters only darkened when spares, money and time were found somewhat wanting when asked to once more go into the breach and this my dear friends brings us to the point of this story...... Necessity is indeed the mother of all invention.......

    Trust me si if I could that's exactly what I would have done,
    Thing was just to far gone, the pulley itself collapsed whileknocking
    the barrings out forcing my hand. The mower is a 30 + year old diesel kobota
    held together with a unwillingness to die. I never care for it, never spend money or time
    on it, so this was a welcome change

    I get stressed if I don't mow mine once a week.
    Twice a week keeps it tidy.

    free time in the shop for some more work on my plans for the work space, it is
    never a bad idea to revisit areas you thought were done. As your work evolves
    so should your workspace....

    The bench that sat next to the pillar drill got used mostly to store all the shit I didn't know
    what to do with, so got abrasive on its arse and cleaned up the act.

    well getting close to my big japan trip so projects have been mostly put on hold
    but still doing some bibs and bobs in the work shop upgrade

    the fab area steel rack is getting a rebuild, white board and ben 10 curtains are gone as is the old shelves




    the clean area for the bead blaster and the final home for the hydroblaster is moving ahead as well
    left over 16mm ply from a job $0, hat section $7 by 6 mtrs, 25x20 aluminium angle fuck all,
    all up both this and the same style wall in the fab area is costing me about $50 sweeeeettttt....
