Discussion in 'The Workshop' started by BasilSeal, Dec 7, 2009.
Seems to work any issue using mild steel for this?
Not so much in the workshop but started work on a workshop at the house, closing in an old open fronted shed, chuck a bit of concrete down and we'll be away.
Do'nt know about the material.
But why not make if the cone type? Less scraping samples out.
Made something similar to that in a hurry last spring. Not perfect but did the job anyway. Used a light gage galv pipe off an old gate.
Borrowed a cone last time it was a disaster for me anyway. A lot of stones in our ground so with cone you’d go down get blocked and try again blocked again but now you have 2 x 2” samples in the cone so results skewed. With this I only save if I get a proper core of 6-8”
I think I read somewhere the zinc in galv can impact results.
Sorry not sure where to put this but.
Was anyone at the opening or know anything about this place? Are they worth a trip? Just saw now on Agriland but not heard of them before.
Check this out on Agriland - Ireland’s first ‘Powered by Kramp’ store grand opening in Athy
I though McHugh's had the sole Kramp agency, but not anymore I guess
You did! It was on here when I asked about it before when making our one.
If I wanted an electric towel rail to hang wet coats on. But only wanted it on for say an hour at a time occasionally. Could it be done.
So not on a timer to regularly come on (as with most standard rails) but to just come on for an hour when I come in and flick the switch.
Have this one on a water heater, works well.
Spontaneous purchase early this morning..
No idea if working and ram needs oil at a minimum so will require some tlc but head looks to be tight on bits pivot so hopefully works out.
no I’m not on a spending spree the below incident complete coincidence although the guard was looking at my strangely heading into the village with a trailer before 7am saying I was looking for the atm.
Can anyone tell me what oil goes in a hawk PTO per washer?
10 w ...,, something is all that’s readable on the one here
I put engine oil in the gearbox of the electric Kranzle power washer here, change it on a regular basis so it doesn't seem to have done any harm.
Got it ready for concrete.
Finally finished the bucket today, not sure whether it looks odd with curved sides or not. Its done now anyway!!
That turned out well . What thickness plate did you use . Is the top beam of the bucket box or folded plate
6mm plate and box for the top beam.
Saw that raid on the news last night.... well known family into vintage combines and such like, their lorry and digger?
@BasilSeal was there much of a saving making your own compared to buying one
Got some concrete down, about half done with leftover from main pour this morning.
I actually haven’t heard where it came from. Some suggestion it was from outside dundalk and a tractor and low loader were involved but doesn’t make sense as it was a beaver tail lorry that was abandoned.
