    It may be worth anyone's while to find their local homebase, if they're one earmarked for closure they're doing a lot at 50% off.

    I have started a new job, indoors building kitchens and stuff, and as such have a sudden requirement for none landscapery type tools, who'd have thunk! So I have had a bit of a splurge.
    - 800mm Festool guide rail for the P6000 plunge saw.
    - Set of 8 Marples anti split chisels that are on offer for under £70
    - 4 pack of MakPak makita stack boxes to make the van tidy and minimise the journey's I make each morning setting up site! Was 6, now 2!
    and waiting for
    - Dewalt 18v SDS and Impact driver kit with 5.0aH batteries... dribble...

    A new shed to house the compressor and blast cabinet. Itís certainly not for the faint of heart blasting in their and ear defenders are not optional....

    I think I need to use some of the recticel insulation I have left over to box it in a bit





    But it has cleared a decent space in the workshop for a mill......

    The compressor will last a lot longer if its boxed in or even just poke the air intake through the side of the shed. I've got my cabinet outside under a lean-to to keep the sand out of the machinery.(and me)

    I may have room to move it outside the shed into a little lean to... itís a bit full on in there with noise tbh. The cabinet has dust extraction so thereís not a lot of dust - itís just fucking noisy

    That was the original purpose of this shed, then I thought.... hmmm blast cabinet as well... cleared loads of room in my workshop. Iíll prolly box it in with some recticel and cut a Louvre panel in the side

    A new Britool Expert 22mm spanner, under their 'Expert' name. It appears that all new Britool tools have the Britool name dropped from them.
