Isn’t is great when some things just fall into place, and work out way better than planned?
Yeah Grant, I had to have something go right with this saga ..... sparky was pretty happy also with how it all went and agreed with me to sort the 60mm height/gap issue from the base in lieu of trying to fill the top. Sides will be all but hidden by the oven but will still do a 25mm strip each side to enable securing screws to be put in.
Wife happy it's in ..... not so happy it needs a clean on the inside and "burn" in ..... it's new toy
Seeing Apprentices starting to return to College made me happy today.
Half sized classes,very strict social distancing in classrooms and Workshops sees a slow return to normal delivery.
Went to get a wheel alignment
Finished up having that plus steering box adjusted ,.plus for new Yokahama lite truck tyres fitted.im happy cos its driving like a new bus.
I am super happy today!! My shoes arrived
I am working a 4 day week at the moment so it's back to work tomorrow but today I got the oven cleaned and fixed a leaking toilet. I also picked up the Beetle and got a pink slip for the Touareg
Nice when a plan comes together.
Good to hear things are returning to normal.more n more cars on the road now to.see the price of fuel gone up to $1.22 ltr but the price of oil remains low..
Used the table saw to trim down the length of timber to 26mm thickness ..... it did not like the notches and took some gentle pressure to get through them, Then the new Bosch oven had a couple of pieces to timber 650mm long and to trimmed down one side to also I use for the new base for the oven ...... gives me relief with some extra correct thickness & sized timber I needed ..... still got all 8 fingers and 2 thumbs + no blood drawn so the Mrs reckons I wasn't doing the job right .
Got rid of a bloody rattle in the T3 that has been pissing me right off.
started a while ago and Beerboy helped me get rid of it. not sure how - but in hindsight we moved the washer on top of the strut just enough to spot it.
Anyway- with some playing, I found that is where it was coming from and half a turn with a ring spanner and all’s quiet
Oh - before I found the rattle, I was driving the T3.
So first smile was the T3 is home
Cut the timber sheets to size for the base in the oven cavity ...... still got all fingers and both thumbs + no blood drawn yet ..... side filler strips & bracing blocks to do then it's pull oven out and install it all.
Wife baked a cake then vegetables for dinner she's happy she has an oven again after 4+ weeks.
Oven removed and the new trim and base installed ..... happy dance .... oven put back in place .
Must have done a good job as drew blood .... small scratch on the right thumb knuckle and don't even know how I did it well deserved Reschs
Better make that two for a job well
Went to Bunnings to get a spade bit and spotted a bargain I couldn't resist. A Bosche proffesional electric wood plane for $99.marked down from $199..
Ended up 3 before dinner was ready
Nice get ..... when working a supplier had a rewards system going for Hitachi gear - grabbed a 9" Circular Saw, Electric wood planner, Jigsaw and orbital sander .... cost $0.00 and got commission on the sale of PC Monitors to boot . Rarely use the tools but great to know they are there. Also managed to get 3 reverse cycle air conditioning systems for the house .... wife not impressed I chose the tools in the 1st run BUT happy with the A/C choice - 2 A/Cs for us and 1 I gave to her sister (should have in hindsight kept this one our spare bedroom ).
Your right Bert,but as you say it's there if you need it .It comes into the category of (just in case)..
And i just gotta have it.
Waking up to a chilly, bright and clear morning......good coffee and then cleaning up bottles from last night
Had a close mate over for dinner and sat around the fire pit afterwards until midnight. Lots of bs, jokes and reminiscing about good times made the time fly.....
It was a good night......and seeing the remains this morning made me smile.
Perfect weather at the moment. cool mornings and nights
T shirt during the day.
I bought 2 and a half cubes of firewood the other day.
Giving it a damn good nudge
