    The battery will last longer if you use these ones. They clamp on the sides of the battery.

    African Wattle (Huilboom) and Resin - 450 mm and this one requires a lot of sanding - ! am about halfway done with it. It came apart halfway through the turning process and my wife patched it with resin.
    Love the resin insert. Hi 5 to your wife. Do you mind telling me where you get your resin and what’s the price?

    Since the school's closed down I've been doing a few of these projects. Too many to count.

    Lego Woody and Lego RC, has been keeping me company at the table since lockdown started.

    I thought we had too much Lego's a while ago, but since COVID-19 lockdown, came to the realization again that one cannot have too many Lego's

    Not sure where he gets his. I've shopped around and got the best variety at decent prices from AMT Composites https://www.amtcomposites.co.za/

    They are on my way to work, and have only been very keen to assist when you visit them.

    I am not as handy as the rest on here, but not to bad for my first try. I am 100% off grid with water now as I have installed the tank and booster pump with the borehole. I have made the decorative wood/ hat hanger for the entrance and I have made the privacy screen next to the swimming pool.

    AMT is where we get ours. The have what they call Woodcast 30. We normally get the 8Kg pack - 5 kg resin and 3 kg hardner. Bought just before lockdown and the price was < R1300.00.

    230 het dun propshaft, met 3 dele en 2 centre bearings.
    250 het obviously korter propshaft. Baie dikker. Net 2 dele en 1 centre bearing.

    Gedig ek kon net die 230 se hele propshaft op 250 body met 230 engine gebruik, maar 250 body het nie mounting punte vir 2de centre bearing nie.

    Gelukkig pas n 300d manual se voorste deel van prop op 250 se agterste deel, maar is presies regte lengte vir die 230 se engine. En ek het een op my scrap hoop.

    Ek was te optimusties.
    Die propshaft lengtes werk nie.
    Maar na gesukkel het ons darem kar gestart. Engine se timing nog uit. Met geen olie, het hidroliese timing chain tensioner gaan le, en distrubuter drive het tande gespring. Nou moet ek net gou timing weer perfek in kry.

    En dan die 230e se propshaft bekyk. Hy kry n v8 in, so hele drivetrain kom uit. Hopenlik is daar iets wat ek kan gebruik van sy propshafts op die 230/250 hybrid.

    Maar nou gou eers die 380se uit trek, en kyk if ek nie sy auto box aan loop kan kry.
    Het steek vas soos n hardkoppige merrie, en pomp geen atf ook nie.
    Hopenlik sal n filter change iets verander.

    Thanks, will give them a try. I tried resin a couple of years back but really battled to turn it. I’m keen to try again.

    Using lockdown to remodel SWAMBO’s consulting room so we need to install cupboard with wash basin. Have the material on hand, so here we go:



    Install ornamental trimming:



    Prepare the room for installation of the two uprights



    Check uprights in place and mark positions for fixtures:



    To be continued.......

    I started making a trolley for my loadshedding battery and inverter. I do not weld well. I hate welding pipe cause its difficult but thats all I got.
    My project didnt start well because I used my table to support the pipe in a vertical position but realized I welded my trolley under the table which is bolted to the floor and is very heavy.I had to use a floor jack to get it out

    I like to blame my tools for my inadequacies.When I weld this chinese metal behaves like its got something in it. It will weld well and then suddenly spark and make popping noises and fizzle.
