    I used my old Samsung Galaxy Tab11 for a while when I killed a few cheap digi cams, it was ok but I was paranoid about grinding sparks and the screen lol

    YRM, bloody things to get lined up on the side panels to weld up but well worth the effort.

    Can't for the life of me remember where they came from?

    Was sure it was YRM but can't find them on their site, off to see if they were an eGay jobbie????

    Could well have been Friggits but not sure......

    According to my eGay account I ordered everything all bar the floor supports from various suppliers, doesn't seem right though but then again I was ordering and looking at so much stuff at the time I seem to have mixed it all up :oops:

    I'm blaming old age :p

    Maybe he's invented windproof welding?! Or like me he was distracted by 3 downed fence panels :confused:

    Sadly it didn't :(

    Between gale force winds whipping through my parking and rain showers I gave in and tied the tarp back down, I managed to get as far as taking the tarp off at least but once we get through the stormy bit of the next week I think I'm going to have to stomach a few days off work and crack on, I really need to pull my finger out and crack on but it's weather permitting and living on Hayling seems to have more downsides than upsides :oops:

    How about your TuffTee?

    I'm looking at time off when the stormy weather passes.

    I thought about fluxcore and remembered the last time I tried it, not good and certainly not pretty :eek:

    You got the howling winds too then?

    Yup. It's had my new fence panels down. I really hate digging out old concrete bases and the dog thinks it great fun next door lol he keeps running around her garden doing a ceremonial canter around the perimeter

    God I hope so, getting tired of tying the tarp back down everyday without ever having plugged the welder in :mad:

    I also hope that the rain pushes off too, it's more depressing than a depressing thing depressing you in a depressing kind of way :oops:

    I thought that might be the case :(.

    and looked at the rust forming :eek:.

    The fender is probably doing the same :(
    I'm going to do what I can inside then go from there. Fence can wait as I'm not doing posts till it can be done calmly with a few morretis and a glimpse of sunshine

    I just ordered a new nipple coupler off eBay as I want a spare in my stores, although I wouldn't recommend googling that exact phrase unless you have a particular fetish :eek:

    I'm shocked at the rents being asked for properties with garages, serious dough and double what I pay currently for very little in return but at least I would be able to actually work on the Rusty one and get it done :rolleyes:

    Even units are cost prohibitive to rent short term round here :(
