  1. What, no Wagnats 2019 plan yet? Waitangi day is on a Wednesday in 2019. Consensus was for the weekend after as having to back to work on the 7th would suck.

    Seems like you need to make the rod longer?

    Prize table is doubling as fire pit this year.
  7. I have ali-x version but haven't used it much - belts seem a bit crap, probably should buy some better ones locally.
  8. Doing the patches is not problem, I have a belt sander setup. It's more about getting the cutouts in the panels done nicely. I want to be close to this good, and I find it hard to do neatly with a cutoff wheel.
  9. I'm wanting to use them to trim the edges of cuts in sheet metal to get good-fitting patches. They should be good enough for that? Not heavy grinding/stick removal.

    Good work - that was a fair bit of rusty metal lurking in the corners.

    About 4.5 I think? Lots of spares.
  12. Thanks, went to Twiggs in Welly today, the PPS website is rubbish. Twiggs is researching. They are pricey suckers though https://www.revolutionindustrial.com.au/poliroll-polico-150pc-abrasive-cartridge-rolls-pol
  13. Any idea where I can get something like these in NZ that are rated for a die grinder speed (1/4 shank) and the sanding drums? https://www.unitedabrasives.com/mmi-family/spiral-band-drums/ https://www.unitedabrasives.com/mmi-family/3-4-diameter/ @Truenotch?

    Ya gotta watch out for the floaters.
  17. My top mounts are just MIG tacked between the plate and pipe. No worries. Only the mods on the front suspension arms need all the TIG and testing.

    Posture/lower back support cushions

    I've got a cushion I got from the physio, one of these I think https://thebadbackshop.co.nz/collections/lumbar-roll-seat-wedges/products/mckenzie-super-roll Had it for a number of years now and it still does the job. For long trips in old cars I got one of these https://www.betterback.co.nz/lumberjack with the leg straps for driving. Works for me.
  20. Pretty easy, probably best to arrange an introduction to the caretaker though. https://goo.gl/maps/cZJ1GFYri212
