    Built a drop down bracket to fit a table in the roof of the canopy but now short of 2 screws to finalize the project. Damn is it irritating!

    Got to finish my loadshedding transportable trolley.Frustrating because i even had to make some 5 mm nuts.
    I was worried that the frame could easily short circuit the battery if i dropped something on the terminals. I dont know what would happen to a lithium battery on a dead short.I made this plastic cover on the positive so I think it will protect the battery from any mishap.

    I want to take this to site so needed to make a box to protect the inverter and charger. But I had no wood to make a box.
    I had this stuff called aluminium composite but dont have the right tools to cut it. This was difficult for me because I had to bend a box to fit in a box. Wood would be much easier.I used a router to try cut it first .but working with it I think needs a learnt technique which i obviously dont have.

Iím planning on using something that has an adjustable flow valve of some sort in order to turn the water on and off when needed, the Shurflo pump has a pressure valve switch so will turn off automatically.

    Heating the water is my next step, either fairly straight forward with a jerry can next to the fire or a gas powered system.

    Cool idea. Like

    Het vandag agtergekom my 230e se autobox gaan nie pas op my 380.

    Op oog af lyk dit na selfde box, maar bolt pattern verskil.

    380 se box is totaal en al kapoet.


    230e se engine en box word vervang met infiniti.

    Het gehoop ek kon box net skuif. Toe nie

    Nice Plunger, good electrical work for a plumber. How many lathes do you have, I counted at least 3 in the background

    Love the nostalgia and memories associated with a chopper but it is your stand that drew my attention. You are a serious biker with that stand, work like a meneer on it

    I changed profession from wood to glass about 5 years ago. Lockdown forced us to switch off our hot glass furnace screwing us over dubbel en dwars.

    Had some time to get my woodshop at home up and running again.

    Got some nice Imbuia to keep me busy for a while!
