Amazing how much better things look after a 'square up'... if I can summon the willpower to finish the paperwork that's on my list today.
so ..... did you get your 'square up' Boyo? or the paperwork get the better of you

'Tis nice to have it all tidy .... I'd have a hell of a lot more space, if this stone guy'd hurry up and come and get started on our wall facing!! got 19 pallets of stone taking up much needed space !!

I shot one of those little fury buggers this morning. I love my [/U]native[/U]wildlife, and any non natives that threaten it better look out.

Oops, that underlining didn’t go well.

No, but going to do it today when I have staff to do the sweeping...

Something I've been meaning to run past you Graham- I keep thinking about switching (myself at least) from landscaping to metalwork. I've gotten prety good by doing all my own stuff. I do occasionaly bits for customers, and nobody bats an eyelid when I charge them the equivalent of £60 per hour for little jobs. I also enjoy it far more. What do you think? What are the major things to watch out for? My inverter MIG is pretty portable and runs nicely off a suitable long lead, so repair of railings etc is looking like easy money. Much call for it?

you bad lad .... lead by example .... get on that sweeper and show 'em how it's done

As for the Q ... can you define "metalwork" ?

Gates, railings, that sort of stuff ... or you talking steel frame buildings or canal barges LOL

lots to consider ... fabbys need CE 'approval' these days ... came in just after I stopped ... Me mate down the road has had a titsful of all the BS paperwork and is winding down with a view to quitting real soon.
Went out and bought new inverter migs like the one I bought in December, but 3ph. ..... cheaper than having his existing sets tested, calibrated and ticketed ... although they've served him well for many years
the paper trail is just horrific.
Product liability is also a serious concern, even more so now, with the CE shit.
plus ... can you find enough of what you're considering to keep the bucks rolling in week on week ???

As for "much call for it" .... don't know your area, but there will always be a need for folks who can make or repair .....
whether there is enough demand in your locale, or worse still, too much competition, is something that only you will know.

Like everything though, the tossers elected into power, are doing their level best to kill any opportunity for those with enough nouse to step off the 9-5 merry-go-round, under the thumb, earning what you're allowed AND paying huge slices to keep the lazy basta**s who won't, in comfort.

as a side line you look to be doing nicely ... is it sustainable full time is what you need to ask your self Rube.
As an 'additional service' it could well be a nice little money spinner by the sounds of it ..... just see if it grows

been looking for a new belt grinder for months ....
single phase are few and far between, but with the advent of 3ph ..
options have broadened

had a couple of Grimax ones in the workshop and were used all day, everyday.

Selmach (Selkent that was) have stopped doing the Grimax and now do Kepp ..
essentially the same Swedish machine and thought I was gonna have to bite the bullet and fork out the 1200 quid plus Vodka for one .....

or buy this one



for £860 .......

when this popped up ..... starting bid of 500 quid



spoke to the guy and he told me it was 2017 ...
his dad had bought it for his ali fab workshop and promptly died ..
complete, but off the stand for ease of storage and a load of belts with it (I do have a few spares too)

deal done for £550 palletised and it should be on its way with Pallex ATM

anyone who's never used one ... little vid below

one of my most missed tools

That is one impressive sander. Puts me Aldi special to shame.
