I was given this magnetic wristband as one of my birthday presents. A useful gadget.

Those hands are clean.
Either the A10 is running really well (hope, so) or you taking a break in the snow and ice. *conf* *bright idea* *good3*

Yes happy belated B/day GB.
I don't do birthdays (or Xmas or wedding anniversary or roundtuit day). Only means I have one less.
Cheers

I have to admit, the Beezer has been in a dismantled state for some months.  *cry*

I was also given this set of Dewalt Extreme drill bits.

G'day GB.
I've never tried those bits. Are they as good as I've heard? negates having to use a pilot drill for larger sizes.

I do the odd lace and true of mates m/bike wheels. Usually charge a six pack of beer (takes about that long). One such mate gifted me this.

I have not used them yet. I'll let you know how good they are later, (if I remember).

Spoke torque wrench? I've never heard of such a thing.

Neither have I, just used the two finger method on the old double ended spanner. This tool is set to 4ft/lb.
