You are all right guys, that was a spanner wrench. I had several of them, they are > than 30 years old, but properly oiled and wrapped in paper. They came from Soviet military equipment. IMG_20200210_210437 (Large).jpg I just took the biggest one and angle-grined it's "nose" off :). Then I took couple of old magnets from some acoustic system and removed metal parts from them IMG_20200210_165855 (Large).jpg. Welded 3 metal pieces together, enlarged central hole making it little offset. Inserted handle inside. And finally I got drill chuck replacement. It is more powerful than original (small black) one IMG_20200210_210657 (Large).jpg. With the new one it is possible to tighten drill bit and it will never turn around inside the chuck.

Talking of bicycles, this is a piece of workmanship




I wish it had sound.

I wish it had links! - OTOH, when I started a "Quote" of your post, the links are shown, and yet when I Save it they disappear again :confused

"By George" he seems to have fixed it (and that cyclist "fixed" the motor bike rider, maybe a "bit" OTT though!) - or at least for me :D

Something possibly "useful" for someone with ground-mounted dishes - Aldi has this adjustable "indoor" "telescopic ceiling support" (in the "outdoor tools and equipment" category!) Telescopic Ceiling Support

Seems likely to be useful when adjusting the dish elevation by supporting it "bit by bit" if you don't have the "muscle" to hold it in that position whilst tightening the bolts (I don't with dishes like the TD110 and the Gibby :oops:)!

I've got some useful toys in the garage today. "Houston, we have a problem" ... I run out of space in the garage, no way I will ever place a car here. :confused

"Somehow" I knew that was going to happen - you'll just have to build another garage (and then another, and another, and........) :-rofl2

I have decided to attach my new swivel band saw to the table I have already made some time ago. Just drilled 4 holes through the surface of the table and fixed everything together. In side the lower part it is possible to store some stuff, such as box for cooling liquid or "other liquid" .

Very good, but just don't sample that "other liquid" too much before having fun with the bandsaw :-rofl2.

I think that Evolution is a nice tool to have available. It is especially helpful if you need clear and perpendicular cut of pipes and tubes. On the video first 5 cuts with new saw. First to to normal metal, and last 3 (another disc) to INOX material. All goes as knife through the butter. VIDEO
Thanks @Captain Jack for helping getting this tool.

I have a smaller version of that Evolution saw. It definitely makes light work of most metals, though it can struggle with thicker (6mm+) metals.

When my (very cheap, and only very occasionally used) Parkside cut-off saw motor burnt out, I looked at various replacements and notably some of the Evolution models, and was somewhat discouraged by quite a number of "negative" reviews on Amazon about the reliability and cutting accuracy of some from that manufacturer - but would nevertheless probably have bought one had not the Parkside unit finally been replaced under warrantee.
