    Seems to work any issue using mild steel for this? 8E40CCA0-DB9D-42CE-896E-BC6BDEFDF31B.jpeg 49F3E869-042E-4757-ADDF-D8E84108B358.jpeg 95E57E65-95A0-4BF1-BE94-FCF59248BAB7.jpeg

    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. IMG_20191110_163055.jpg

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    @BasilSeal was there much of a saving making your own compared to buying one

    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.
