Re: I'm well and truly in the shit

That's it, just rub it in. Git. big_smile big_smile I've got to disassemble to allow for the fact that I have a bloody great hole to navigate it past. big_smile Is that wheeled trolley for the base a manufacturer made part or a later addition?

Re: I'm well and truly in the shit

The bugger finally submitted to a combination of heat and progressively larger hammers. big_smile

It normally does.

(I made the trolley, being able to move it around is invaluable if you don't have a lot of room)

Re: I'm well and truly in the shit

The trolley suits it well. Looks good in that photo.

Picked that compressor up today. Not quite as large as I feared, thankfully. big_smile It's an old Laycock. I'd guess around a 100 or 150 litre tank. Needs tidying up and the like, and a new cover plate making for the pressure switch, but there's nowt seriously wrong with it that I've noted. Motor's naff, but it doesn't appear original, so that's no biggie. Quite a nicely sized unit. The head unit wouldn't be man enough to run high flow tools consistently, but that's what the Kismet lump is sat here for. That one should cover owt I'd ever need to use.

big_smile big_smile If I decide to let the Major go, I'll put your name on it? big_smile Space constraints may, for once, dictate whether I hold onto both, and the Major being the younger of the two, it would be the one to go.

Btw, Ebay is worth keeping an eye on at the moment. The prices the Rapidor's are going for is unusually low at the moment. Been like it for a couple of weeks now, so don't know how long the will will last.

Re: I'm well and truly in the shit

I can sympathise wholeheartedly on that point. big_smile It's like having a carrot dangled, ain't it. The amount of times that happens is unbelievable.
