    Re: What to upgrade to, eventually.

    I'd have to agree. Lizard has 2 options:

    - go buy what HE wants
    - let SWAMBO pick

    Based on his posts so far, option #2 is the best.

    As to what he should buy: see above.

    Re: Pajero Mk 1 Advice

    If the price is R0.00 than the price is right.

    Parts will be almost impossible to source.

    It's almost 40 years old.

    Many better options out there.

    Re: Best budget bench-top drill press?

    Yes, I'm also tending towards the 16mm version but it's a significant jump in cost for something I'd probably only use 4 times a year. Although I reckon I'd then do more projects that require better...

    It's the mountain behind Harties High. And it isn't a brewery. They don't brew, it's a lie.

    Yes, was planning to.



    The spindle is adjustable. Or it should be. Little grub screw. You can see it next to the feed handle shaft on the Adendorff unit.
