Boys and Girls,

You may be wondering what this is all about, however, if you weren’t following the bouncing ball you may have arrived here before the drinks refreshment cart.
For those that are now perplexed, may I suggest you peruse my blog about Stupid Ideas/Buys on Bricking up a house-vac.

However, with this offering… You get to kill two birds with one stone... and by that I don’t mean a bloody big stone on two tiny little birds
You get,
  1. a Stupid Ideas/Buys instalment (elsewhere).
  2. a handy Workshop Operational Tips instalment (here).

How I extricated myself.

I remembered my Perspex (Acrylic) Repair/CA Clean-up. blog and thought that a cordless “buff” and some auto-polish

may be my salvation.

Removed the opaque bin from the Dyson

and smeared a good coating of polish on the inside. Mounted the drill with one of the pads I used for cleaning up the Perspex and buffed away,

After a few minutes I replaced the Dyson with the clear bin… at least clearer.

Moral of the story is that if you have enough useless tools in your workshop, you’ll eventually find something that will fix the impossible.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Brilliant!

I have plenty of useless tools sitting around the shop but am still waiting for a stroke of genius to hit them (I mean me) LOL

No tool is useles Steve... They’re just idle lazy bastards lining up in the dole queue waiting for the economy to recover.
My sole defence is pointing out to SWMBO… she has 2 feet (number not length) why 10+ pairs of shoes?... seeing as she is too embarrassed to go out into public with me!

Good job duckie, at least the compound wasn’t getting flicked all over the workshop and was contained within the clear bin.

Good for the car headlights too !
Consider yourself lucky you don’t live in Queensland

Anyone found illegally keeping rabbits can be issued with an on-the-spot fine of $2,200. The maximum penalty for keeping rabbits in Queensland is $44,000. Under current legislation imprisonment is not a penalty for keeping a pet rabbit in Queensland.Dec 16, 2014

So do I read it correctly… you can’t be imprisoned if you don’t pay your $44,000 fine?

Is there a discount if the bunny has myxo’?
