This is a restoration to my hart, done like it should be done according to the circumstances it came in it's original form.
Also the polishing of the bras is appropriate for this model, as a brass shine was the original finish

Having spent the last two days struggling to replace a broken front spring on my car (then finding the strut is also shot) I decided I needed a break doing something more therapeutic So I set to making a fire box not a lot to say the pictures tell the story the parallel bars in the picture are all I use to form the box The nibbler is handy for starting the cut out for boiler   first picture is one cat fed up of waiting for his treats I forget the pictures go on in reverse order the cat should have been the last one

Nice one Tony I have one of the old style nibblers which fit on a drill and when I first saw the Cat after the dreamies I thought you had lost a spring and the cat was helping find it 🙂 😉 .....

No Phil if it is not edible he is not interested  I don't use the nibbler a lot but it is a useful tool

Gets you out of a few long filing jobs. I have one too - about 30 years old?

No idea of its age I picked it up at a carboot years ago to be honest I had forgot all about it until last year when I was looking for something to cut a hole in a piece of very thin steel sheet
