With luck the second time I use it will be for something related to mechanics.....


Since I got my impact driver the breaker bar barely gets a look in Smile

An impact driver can't be brandished in quite the same way as a breaker bar can. Laughing

Handing it to you as I was leaving in front of the filth was probably pushing the envelope a bit...

Was funny when the littleshits bitched to the police about it and then promptly got arrested. Damngood way of identifying yourself as the miscreant involved....

Bloke at work had a lock pick set and let me have a go. Its something I've been meaning to get into for a good while.
His practice lock was interesting to overcome but didn't take long.
Its quite satisfying to see some of the more expensive locks just pop open.

If the practice lock was one of those acrylic jobs, you only have to wave a pick in their general direction to open them. They're good for showing how the principle works though.

If you're thinking about buying some picks then start with these:

https://www.uklockpickers.co.uk/lock-picks/lock-pick-sets/sparrows-kick-start-pick-set.html

They won't break the bank and they're ideal for a beginner. When you're ready to move on then get the expansion set from the same site. Supplement that with these:

https://www.uklockpickers.co.uk/lock-picks/tension-wrenches/sparrows-full-set-flat-pry-bar-tension-tools.html

Top of keyway tension tools and you're set for any standard cylinder lock.

It's Sparrows stuff that I've linked for you. Thumbs Up

Relatively inexpensive and decent quality.

Top end kit would be something like this:

Give me a shout if you need any advice or help Smile

We met a blind man in the park today and the dog took a shine to the ball on the end of his white stick.
I was absolutely mortified and couldn't apologise enough but the bloke saw the funny side.
He said it reminded him of when he used to go fishing with his dad!
We laughed.

Police told me yesterday that it was a torch and not a metal bar.

I got a similar kit years ago for picking cash drawer locks. Nothing nefarious but on a occasion a pub landlord would lose his keys (probably went to bed pissed) and they came in handy recently dismantling the helmet/seat lock on the old DT. Took me about 10mins, bit out of practice obviously Smile

Watching my 3 year old nephew steal a few swigs of red bull from my can just before I left my brothers house.

Apparently he was bouncing off the walls and they could not work out why......

A mate of mine that's fell on hard times and kinda short after his wife left him was trying to work out how he could afford to get his two daughters something half decent for Christmas. He mentioned one of them was interested in the piano and had an app on her phone.
I bought a big Yamaha electronic keyboard last year from Argos on impulse as it was on offer. I turned it on once , faffed about for a day then put it back in the original packaging/box and fired up up the attic planning to whack it up for sale.

He was sitting downstairs while I rumaging away. You should of seen his dial when I came down and said `Is this any use to you? It's virtually new`

I'm now officially owed several brews with chocolate biscuits. Cool

I buy and sell tools and boxes, some of the stuff thats mixed in just does not sell or is not worth bunging on ebay.

Over the past few months I have been making up a cantilever tool box of odds and sods for the apprentice at work as he cant afford to pay for petrol and buy tools.

Today I gave the box to him, he was genuinely made up. I hope he gets use out of them and help him get off to a decent start in his career.

I've still got the spanners one of the old boys gave me when I started out at 15. Had them 50 years now.

Attempting to wrestle a bike the weight of a rhino by foot on an icy path.

One day I'll look back with a garage and wonder why? Laughing

I went through an old toolbox in my shed the other day and found the magic wand I had as a service engineer ~25 years ago. It just used to sit in the top of the toolbox so clients would comment "...I knew it!"

Couple of weeks ago I had to buy some stuff for the firm from a website I've never looked at before, where they have a standard and exorbitant postal charge if the order is under a certain value, free postage if it goes over.

I was 10 quid short of free postage, so I had a look round the site to see if there was anything I wanted for myself, found a hoodie in a colour I quite liked, they had my size and it was 15 in a sale, job jobbed, thought nothing more of it.

Finally got round to opening it up today - fits perfectly, lovely colour and it turns out I've got a really high quality, fleece lined top, warm and toasty and normally retails at 70 Shocked

Result Very Happy

I came across those brands on the older ships I sailed on, wonderful indestructible kit. No fancy chrome plating or polished finish just totally practical tools. Very much a case of they don't make them like that anymore. Thumbs Up

Although calling your tools King Dick nowadays probably wouldn't be the best advertising move. Laughing
