Gee's John quick put that down before the puffle valve blows...........or you end up in hospital for a hernia and we end up with a "Sunday Night Nite Cap special series"  :bugeye: where the Dr's need those spanners to tighten up the nuts.

Quality comment Ray  :clap:..........I said exactly the same to John when I saw the photo , looks worse in freeze frame than on the video  :bugeye: I must say it is more heavy than it looks mind , I went to get it out Johns car and thought it was snagged on something as it did not move with what seemed like enough force to lift it lol

 Cheers Mick

...where the Dr's need those spanners to tighten up the nuts.  ...

By the colour of his face I would say that certain nuts were already close to shearing.

 :beer: Mick  :thumbup: its not often I get to poke fun at someone else like that. Makes me wonder how big the fellow who worked with it was (now what was the old wrestlers name something Giant ???)

Maybe you two need to eat more porridge and drink less Brown stuff or should it be the other way round.

Dave its a good job one is a ring spanner  :lol:

I have a set of insert bits for my electric screwdriver (a really nice, but older Hitachi) small - but great battery life and power, that allow easy screwing of slot head screws.  The slot driver is within a circular 'restraint' which prevents the bit from slipping out of the slot - if that makes sense.  Different sizes of restraints for different screw head diameters, but it works really well.  Result, slotted screws are easy with these.......

That plunger oil gun should come in handy for the lube points on the Harrison.

Hi Lads, I got a few bits at the first bootsale of the year with John yesterday.

  Some canny stuff, a selection of nice sharp Stubs files, including some good rifflers, a nice wood box with various coloured sealing waxes ( used to seal documents by melting then pressing a seal into the melted pool of wax, like in the old days ) a selecting of small clay moddling tools, some double sided razor blades marked patent 1911, a wire wheel for the grinder , two die grinder bits, small old pry bar, 3 x nice oil stones one in a leather holder, a small jig for holding engraving gravers while sharpening them and a nice shop made machinists brass and plastic hammer.................. the whole lot for a total of 13..... Ooops no 15 prybar was 2

 

This is the sealing wax, I thought it was sealing wax but the perfumed bit made me doubt, it must just be so when melted it does not smell like burnt wax !
 

  Fingers crossed for good weather next week.

 Cheers Mick

Looking at John's Mystery tool it reminds me of the jigger my parents had for stretching the lining of a shoe, specially if mum's bunions were giving trouble. There were buttons that could be inserted to give extra room in some spot or other.  This link should take you to a picture of what I am thinking about. http://www.footfitter.com/c/shoe-stretchers.html   As you will see by selecting the first item then choosing different views - the right most view gives you a look at the business end. The stretch / spreading force is applied by the winding back of the pointy end.  :med: See, I might not remember what was said 10 minutes ago but this is retrieved from the memory banks of some 70 years past.
