Whilst waiting for bits for my rod, I'm tackling a sod. We'll, it's a rolling resto on my tranny really.
Now, to the point 馃憠. Filling up a cavity with a screwed up copy of The Sun is definitely not the right way to go about a repair.

Everybody knows that you should use glossy mags because they don't hold as much water 馃槅馃槅馃槅

Actually, in the absence of a glossy mag, I resorted to getting a proper repair panel, and having offered it up, it is a great fit too. Happy days馃榾馃榾馃榾

you know its a transit when you see 2 grinders on the job
i have 4 grinders so i don't have to keep changing wheels. 1- grinding, 1- cutting, 3- flapwheel and 4- twist knot wire wheel. you really save time when the job means cut a bit, grind a bit, cut a bit etc etc. and they're just the 4 1/2" ones, i have 2 9" for cutting metal and a a diamond wheel for stone/blocks etc. plus a 12" chop saw of course. you can never have too many power toys.

I have stopped buying tools and equipment and actually started selling off some bits that i have not used in 2 years or have multiples of (lathes, mandrel benders, tube notchers, anvils (had 6) guillotines (had 3)) always make sure when i let stuff go that is ends up in the hands that can use it and for the right price.

Had a transit like this a few years back and it was an exercise in panel repair and welding, sold it to a local lad and see it around still
