    I was thinking the easy to keep clear work bench with no top was cheating a bit on this thread.

    Surely the couple of stray straws on the floor , under where he is welding must give him a few extra points ??

    Your all missing the point, surely :scratchhead::scratchhead:........

    It's an improvement, made stronger and better than the original, will far outlast a standard item, will see the changing of many different handles and heads, such is it's strength, its clearly far superior to that which it's replaced! .....i.e., not a bodge.....:)

    I rest my case....

    But if they did that commercially it would be a bodge because it would last too long before they could sell another. The thought of anything in this thread being sellable though scares even me :nailbiting:

  13. Any body here mastered the dark art of reuseing used pop rivets.

    Much better to use tec screws. They can be used multiple times, and if they get to blunt to drill their own hole, you can pre drill with a drill bit (resharpened broken one obviously)
  15. Also whats best way to re shaft a hammer without useing new shafts waterpipe and broken bale spikes

    The shanks make good tool hangers when hammered into the edges of shelves, with the added bonus that it saves on straightening nails(y)
