    Hi Fluffy

    What CNC router do you have? I am after one, happy to build one myself...The retail versions I have looked at that were decent were very expensive. I want to mill wood & plastic.

    I had some work requiring compressed air but this also entailed moving the compressor from its usual hiding place. I noticed some oil down the side and realised I had not checked the oil level for some time, not that my compressor is an everyday use item.

    Anyway, cleaned up the mess and noticed the head bolts were loose. Tightened these to the required torque (draai tot hy strip en dan 'n kwart terug....!) - not quite, but just nice and tight.

    Since I still have some LD time to sort out the garage, I could not locate the bottle of comressor oil which I know I have somewhere. Topped up with some 5w30 from the Ranger's stash. I will need to change the oil at some stage in the not too distant future. What oil other than dedicated "compressor oil" do you use?

    Also, there's the viewing glass which can seemingly be removed with a spanner. Is this where you drain the oil?

    Default Your Lockdown Projects

    We did not really have a full lock down like you guys, but we are not allowed to venture out of our postcode areas. So no camping or weekend drives.

    Bought an old Fronius Tig welder on Gumtree for $80.
    Turns out the guy selling it is an ex Saffer and he got it from a mate in Zim before he came over to Kangarooville.

    Always wanted to weld aluminium.

    Set it up at home in the garage and actually managed to melt some of the coupons together. Tricky stuff that alu....





    Also got a bow a while back. Never got time to practice. Now I have time....

    my grand daughter has colic. Any recommendations on how to deal with colic? She battles to fall asleep and we cant put her in the car for a drive and I get tired and bored pushing a pram so I made a simple proof of concept. Now I just need to fine tune.
