- I went to get some plumbing gear out of the Ikea wire rack job I have had for 20 years.
Again the 'bastard of a thing' avalanched down with one shelf dropping down to the next one, and so forth.
I was trending towards another Tourettes moment.
However I remained strangely calm.
Without the permission of the Haus-Boss I retired to my study and ordered 40 after carefully consideration...
This included considering the old kitchen bench that is in the garage where the drawers and doors are also fully knackered.
I have sand paper in one dodgy drawer and can never get to things.
Then I scratched the beard...
And considered for the umptenth time how to make a work bench that replace the kitchen bench.
I want it on wheels so I can shift it about.
And I want to be able to break it down to flat-pack it if/when I move. So I have been considering unglued dowels/dominos for alignment and screws to hold it together.
So I ordered a Lamello Zeta-P2 and some clampex to use for the function of screws.
I am looking at vacuum bags at the moment
as I have a roll of carbon fibre. So weighing up using an end-grain balsa core with c/f face-sheets. I may just use the fibreglass face-sheet material.
Probably 8 feet long with a top and bottom and a center spine, and some dividers every systainer width to stiffen it... Sort of a thick Paulk design.
I'll probably paint the carcase with an automotive paint and 2-pack clear coat it.
I whack some castors on the base to shift it about.
That bench will hold a lot of the systainers and I can texta chisels, sand paper, etc on those systainers or have a lookup table for my crap may be. Back onto the p1cc...
I spoke with the local "Test & Tag" fellow this arvo.
He charges $6/tool, and maybe another $6 /extension-leads.
He said no worries with an Aussie male end on a p1cc. If I have not already done that, then add $10/tool and it is stamped compliant. He also said no worries with a Nuetrik on it, but that may be another few $/tool to test-n-tag them.
I was leaning on the Domino last weekend, and I now wish that all the manufactures put Nuetrik on, rather than a "plug it". It would make the tools more like an ISO standard "system". And the Nuetrik feels a lot more solid than a "plug-it".
The Haus-Boss wants an MDF craft credenza. I spoke of Jarrah and she said as long as it is painted white and looks like MDF she doesn't care what I use.
The Zeta will do that first to break the news to her... And then a book shelf for her work...
