    Just a orbital sander for me today, as my old one died on me and taking it apart didn't fix it, mind you, £2 for a sander and a load of sanding sheets was a great bargain.:dance:

    Orbital Sanders is a wide-ranging subject.

    Still a good bit of activity - last one next week, apparently.

    I'm hoping that I can finally find a bugle next week.

    Have you considered a shih tzu?

    I did get a nice adjustable spaniel a few weeks ago.

    I bought some molegrips. They kept slipping off and the little blighters ran off down a hole.

    Monkey wrenches are often a better choice.

    Quite big for a first attempt this year, I thought. Though, a little chilly in the breeze. But, at least it was dry underfoot.

    I got a couple of grab handles and a nice old padlock.

    There was a choice of metronomes available, but I couldn't find the time to decide which to have...

    Tried our luck today. Learned very quickly that even though it’s kick out at 2pm it’s basically dead by 11

    Biggish again, despite the fair.

    Very little of any interest to me, though.

    There were two Etch-a-Sketches, but I need VGA these days.

    Not bad today, although all I actually got was a Skyline bread knife for my Mum, to avoid her using her current double-sided one, and leaning on the top of it!

    Just like the one from this set here.

    [​IMG]

    Highlight of the day for me was the presence of a non-shouty-fruit-man.


    I went to the KH warehouse on the way home and found an absolutely 'brand new' B&D Jobber - a very handy thing, more practical in many circumstances than a full-sized Workmate.

    [​IMG]

    Complete with the original table-edge clamps, which is unusual...

    Looking for the money for that did involve 'rediscovering' the bread knife in my rucksack - but, I seem to have survived - so far.

    Quite a bit of stuff today that was borderline interesting, but all I actually got was a nice walk.

    Biggish today, but disrupted by occasional spurts of drizzle.

    Interesting items included a selection of anchors and a large box of barcode scanners.

    All I got was a PC-206 pipe cutter.

    [​IMG]

    It makes a very neat job of cutting plastic pipe.

    Amusingly, I thought, I suggested to the vendor that I was intending to use it on kidnap victims, to snip off bits as the negotiations proceeded - then he pulled his hand of his pocket - with the top of his little finger missing...


    Interestingly, Googling for a suitable image revealed that PC 206 also refers to the Penal Code section of Californian law that covers torture, and was illustrated by this picture -

    [​IMG]

    - I wonder if it's just a coincidence?

    Nothing for me today.

    There was a lot of tripods around, including one still in its box, which proclaimed it to be a Digital Tripod.

    I wonder if I could have got it cheaper by saying that I really wanted an analogue one?

    Quite a bit of interesting stuff today, but all I came home with was a Dewalt torch -

    Big again today, but nothing of any consequence to report.

    Just a large selection of crucifixes.

    And, possibly, slightly fewer zombies than normal.

    Smaller today, and little of great interest to me.


    Or, probably, anybody else - I don't think I saw anybody carrying anything...
