    reb got a reaction from GrumpiusMaximus in The new news 24 thread   
    Just done the form to get my driving licence back after I let it expire back in January last year. I probably still won't use driving as my main means of transport, so I'm now trawling the internet for interesting yet (relatively) cheap to own chod.
    A big part of me wants a 4x4, but I can't help but feel that would bankrupt me rather quickly.
    Another Volvo estate is probably just the thing.

    For aslong as I can remember I've wanted to be directing my own path in business but never had the actual confidence to overcome huge self doubt and fears of failure, in 2021 when I nearly met with my mortality thanks to covid I remember hating that I'd played things safe as houses like a boring nobody and literally despite continued health maladies I feel that I've got a second run up at life , so I'm starting from nothing at 35 and want to get pushing forward with what is abit of a dream for me .
    So basically my sister and I have teamed up to create a new garage/engineering works of which provides the usual bread and butter garage services and also more specialised work less commonly found like large manual machining capability and welding.
    We're looking to stock up on a range of common classic parts too so that we can take on most project work without waiting on parts turning up in ebay etc albeit limited space prevents stocking a vast amount.
    So far over the last 8 months !

    Obligatory huge lathe brought back somewhat inappropriately 


    Company car brought down , inappropriately 

    Lathe electrical rebuild done because it was dangerous as hell, 415 through the soaked push buttons etc ,,horrible ! Once cleaned and generally setup it's been put to work straight away!

     
    this s100 k series swap was quite aquite to drive, getting one to fit the earlier car isn't bolt in like with the estelle and rapid !

    Cambelt snappage job on an iveco 2.3, lots of new valves and lapping required!

    loads of work done, and loads more hopefully to come !

    I will admit that it would probably be going slightly more smoothly if my "mallet" wasn't an old thermos flask.

    I found a lump hammer, and it made the process about 420% easier.
    Taking a break now, then I have to move some stuff to put the first one in place, then I can put the second one together.
    Though having just looked at the time I should probably do it tomorrow since I doubt my neighbours would appreciate loud hammering at 9pm.

    Erm, I mean yeah it's made from Chinese pressed "steel" but it's man enough to support a load of tools and stuff. 
    I seem to remember there was a knack, and a hammer was useful.

    I would use a piece of wood between metal and hammer if no mallet available.

    Some of it needed a good few taps of the mallet to seat things home.

    I think I bought the same thing, the assembly method relies on tabs in slots but it's possible to misalign one tab, which might have lead to the 'falling apart' review.
