Some SAT-related hardware.
My Location
N-E from Riga
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.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

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:)!
