" those who've not seen these apart before can see the wood for the trees ... I'll chuck 'em on the blade, 'fore they go back together and take a few pix "

and here they are ....

getting the adapter back on is easy enough, but much easier with the VA-r on


Main forks got the rotary wire brush treatment on the 5" Makita ...


and some teflon spray applied

this stuff is bloody brilliant at making 'em slide about ...



and parked 'em up for now ..........


......... to whip this off the Akerman 3 ft rock bucket, for some attention from the wire brush ... made several years ago for the two B20 buckeets I have ... works a treat, but should've painted it back then .. had intended to make some additional mod.s .. hence no paint, but never got around to it ... could be time ... first though, secure the bosses, which were only ever tacked in place ... then see if I can recall what i'd planned to do in the way of additional work to it


has taken some time to get it back to this ... I look like a cross between a black and white minstrel and a porcupine .. that 5" brush loves shedding its stainless steel bristles and had some sort of rust off this today !!!!!

this'll make you laugh ... just had a bollocking ...... for leaving bits of bristle in the shower tray ... must've been more stuck in me than I realised ... thought I'd got 'em all .... and I'd 'sluiced' the tray out when I got out too

the crimped bristle ones are right lil' bar stewards ... have to stop every ten minutes to pluck yerself ... not a fan of the twisted ones ... too 'fine' ... the crimped ones cover some ground

just had a chinook over here half an hour ago .... so bloody low he blew the sun loungers about on the patio ..... thought the bugger was coming in for a landing!!! heard him coming and thought jeeeeezus he's low .... and he was !! ....

we used to get the Herc.s using us as a landmark, regularly ... would come over so low the slates'd rattle on the roof .... they'm a BIG lump at 50 ft and'd just clear the oak trees above us ... loons!!!
