    Has it? It's a bloody good saw. Seems a lot better than some of the other leading brands out there.

    Whaddaya think of it? The playbook, not the petrol

    Had one for a while, doesn't get used much. I can VPN to work and remote control servers and shit, but since getting an Android phone the playbook seems a bit :meh:

    YMMV, of course

    I recklessly purchased a D&T departments entire redundant plant. Couple of fretsaws, couple of CNC milling machines, CNC vinyl cutter, floorstanding polisher and a bloody great lathe (harrison M250).

    I must be mad. I have to hope there's enough margin in the purchase to pay me back because I just bet the farm on it...

    I don't know if I'm pleased or not yet. I'm still in shock and I still have to pick up the lathe. By myself.

    Screwd.

    Have fun when you stop and try to get the shoes out the pedals and end up falling on your arse with the bike on top of you.
    It happens to everyone with them. Especially if you think you have got used to them. Very embarrassing at a set of traffic lights in the City of London. Just as well it was a Saturday and not much traffic around..

    I am waiting for that - nearly happened once today actually; which would have been doubly embarrasing with a child on the back. Couldn't quite get the shoe free and was going very very slow when I finally got free.
