Trailer Porn II


Ladies - please look away. Today is all about tools.

OK, so the drums were delivered yesterday, but (by the smell) one of them previously contained something highly flammable and I don't want to go attacking it with an angle grinder and blowing myself into Wiltshire and next Thursday in the process.

The only solution is a set of air shears or a nibbler, which are relatively inexpensive (about £15), but the cost of a compressor is something else (£100 plus).

May go back to the original idea of buying the ready-made oil drum mudguards off eBay, but there again, a set of air shears and a compressor is very appealing (although not to Hay - she accused me of not thinking this one through properly; what a ridiculous accusation....).

I already have a small compressor for paint spraying, but it's nowhere near powerful enough to drive a set of air shears. That said, I have spotted this drill attachment, and at £19 I may give this a go first before investing in a cimpressor.



I have been tooling myself up of late and buying all manner of equipment from eBay and Lidl (the Lidl Parkside power tools are really good for the price) and I really lust after a decent compressor. It's just a pity I didn't buy one from Lidl the other week when I saw some for sale. I nearly bought the Lidl chain winch, but that would be almost impossible to hide from Hay. Yesterday she spotted the chainsaw I got from eBay earlier in the week, but nothing was said, beyond a knowing and resigned look.
