What are you up to in the workshop?

I'm ok on heights to a certain extent but it has taken a few years to get to that stage. A few years ago I was putting a bird cage on a chimney on a two storey house we had at the time. The only ladder I could get use of at the time reached to just under the eaves. It was ok getting up but coming back down was another matter entirely, as it was very tricky to see the ladder. Luckily I had someone on the ground to guide me back onto the ladder. I still shudder a little bit thinking about it.

Got the loader more or less finished today, still 3 stickers to go on but their on the way. Happy with how it came out. Just stuck a new guide bar for the level on it as it was a bit grubby looking and a few new hoses where theybwere a bit worn from rubbing. Pins and bushings were like new so it needed nothing in that line of things.

I rigged up the power washer so I can have two Lances in case the turbo is too strong for some jobs .
We did sort of similar, we have 2 lances with quick release males on them and a quick release female on the end of the hose, just a matter of picking up whichever one you and and clicking it in before you start the washer!

something along the lines of these

Is it possible use a power washer to clean tarmac, without damaging it,have some with some moss on it, was tempted to give it a go
Its possible, but not great for the tarmac, it tends to make more holes, for more moss to row in..
I find washing powder good, but needs to be done wen the moss is just staring to get prominent

No one person who did it and it looked super afterwards, but not long after the tarmac all started to break up😟

Or you could just have interchangeable ends on the gun

We had a lance once with two jets on it. There was a ball in behind the jets and all you had to do tilt the lance and let the ball go across and shut off one jet. It worked really well, haven’t seen one of them since.

Next job is to get the pistons out but they are pretty fast in, had a quick attempt with a block of wood and the big hammer but the block of wood lost.

The steering knuckle hopped off on the JCB 3D while I was away. Mr Google had many suggestions but he did not know about the new one that was in the bucket on the top shelf in the middle shed. We have the machine 39 years.

Not especially exciting, been busy with a lot of other stuff recently, but been tipping away at these.

Made about 3 years and never painted so painted the lot, used the grinder to take some of the edge off the forks for better safety handling bags, drilled some holes for a hitch or a shackle and put a bit of yellow on the hooks and toes to help visibility in dark buildings in a tractor with no wipers/screenwash
