    I have some for 2 different Renault engines and 4 cylinder BMW. Peugeot 405s could be locked with a couple of drill bits, I probably still have them too

    Yeah,, my Transit could be locked up with a drill bit. Or maybe two, I can't remember now.
    Think I locked it up when I was faffing with the fuel pump timing.

    No bloody way would I even try that on my Toyota, buggerall space under the bonnet there.
    Although its common rail so would likely have a slush pump anyway?

    Aldi special

    https://www.aldi.co.uk/ferrex-300w-m...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    So far, it's as good as a DeWalt I've used. Just need to figure if it takes replacement blades which are available in screwfix.

    You can often get packs of blades from Ebay and Amazon for a lot less than the big brands.
    Think mine are branded "Antler" and I got masses for thirty quid a while ago.
    Beats getting about two Bosch bpades for the same money.

    My old 30 Aldi table saw can't cut it any more. I can't get the right size saw blades, the fence is showing its age (and was never brilliant) and it's too small and always has been. So I've replaced it with a Bosch PTS 10T, this one:



    There were other saws I fancied but price and size played a big part in my choice and this will be good enough for the sort of work I need it for. Not having a workshop or even a mancave is a big problem and I simply can't buy the tools I'd like. But out of the box it seems pretty good. Reports on older versions were 50/50 but this newer version seems to be OK. Of course, I now have to make a few jigs etc to get more and better use from it but that's all part of the fun.

    I've had my bathroom done out and they stuck new tiles over the old ones so I have to do a bit of fettling to make the architraving fit around the door. Cutting wood tomorrow.

    The old saw was snapped up by another ex-pat in the village for a beer. I think I get the better of that deal!

    2x5in & 3x 3in velcro backing pads for my PC7424 & 2x 6in backing pads for my IR DA air sander. Already buffed all the scratches out of the paint on the Camaro with various 3in foam pads & two different goops on the PC7424.
    Got quite a bit of paint correction to do on the Accord too. May start on that this week.

    One of these to remove an over-run pulley.

    $2.99 flush cutters from Horrible Fright:

    https://www.harborfreight.com/micro-...ter-90708.html

    Walmart version was $14.99. I just need them for cutting the sprue's on a model I'm building & they work perfectly for that task.

    I have a pair for the same reason but bought Tamiya ones. Really expensive but they cat absolutely flush on the sprue. Cannot recommend them enough.
