Jim's Rising Chair
Reviews for it aren't that positive either
Thanks for the info, but by the time I got it to NZ I think it would be $100+ ($150NZ) and I have this terrible allergy when it comes to spending money -- it brings me out in poverty!
Valid points, but I would have to buy hinges, hooks and braces and I don't think it would be as rigid, also with this I can set up several tools the same way and just slide them in as and when i need them (ie grinde, vice, sander etc)

Then get and make one! It doesn't take that long (especially if you have a workshop full of industrial power tools like where I work! ;-) )
Thanks, you are right - it will probably outlast me!!

Margoat(Seraphina) is the black one Baaabara (Eric) the white one, named for characters in the BBC series The Good Life (try YouTube) Barbara Good (Felicity Kendall), Margot Leadbetter (Penelope Keith)
It will be sprayed when I get time. The ground is free draining (we are on top of a hill) and pretty firm
OK so I've added a bit of video, unfortunately they don't frolic on demand, despite me asking. In fact they said "Dad, we don't frolic, we Gambol!, look it up in the ispy book of ovine play terms!!" so I said "well, do some Gambolling then" and Margoat said I'm sorry we can't as we struggle to hold the cards with cloven hooves, and Baaabara has eaten the ball from the roulette table" I said "no Gambol, not gamble" to which they replied "you're not the boss of us you know, and by the way my real name is Seraphina and hers is Eric, if you want us to act the goat then we want to be addressed properly" --- So I went to bed!
I apologise profusely, however will not be able to add video until the weekend, in the meantime may I placate you with this picture of Goats in Coats (so much more satisfying than Cats in Hats!)
I'll post you one!!
I could probably also muster a video of the new puppy trying to eat the goats while the rescue rooster attacks my wife!!
This is probably the least dangerous plaything they have in the paddocks! (They have already wrecked the hen coops by "weight testing" the chicken wire on them!) But we do keep an eye on them, wifey works from home and they are put away at night
Thanks - and not in the least bit mischievous!!
I will see what I can do, but am somewhat of a technophobe when it comes to video!! I could perhaps get a zombie goat as a nod to the time of year and the post apocalyptic completion, I know I have a dead chicken somewhere if that would suffice!
That's the swarf guard - I guess I should use it really! ;-)
You are welcome

I agree and if you save even 1 piece of timber going to landfill then you have done a good job!
Everyone has a posh sounding title these days ;-) !
Agree that if you are doing fine furniture work, but most of my stuff is in the "with in the 1/8 inch" bracket!Also my chop saw angles are minutely out by a degree or so, but I know and compensate for it
I like hand tools, but I also like getting stuff done quickly! I also find if you want to mess something up you can do it so much more efficiently with power tools!

With added "and then the rope drops off and is dragged into the rotating components, dragging you into the mechanicals whilst dragging you down the road"!!
Alternate title "How to run yourself over when the car falls off the jack, whilst the engine is running, the car is in gear and the handbrake is insufficient to restrain the traction from the one driving wheel still on the ground" but that's probably not quite as snappy!
the deeper ones (right side are in about 2 feet, the shallower about a foot, as the slope dictated. I may put some soil around the base to level the area, not sure yet

Thanks I love to recycle
I have seen expensive wrench sets that are anodized different colours for each size and considered buying them. This is a much better idea at least the wife won't complain that I am spending even more on tools. Mind you those anodized set are attractive!!! (I'm a toolaholic)
If you thought Europe was expensive come to NZ and be another level of shocked!
Well done and a good entertaining ible. I am always amazed how cheap your big box stores are in the US. It's always worth DIY-in though as once you have the right tools everything becomes easy

Yup - that about sums it up! I will make some nicer ones now I have figured out how it works (I'm thinking a semi submerged hippo)
I had an Irish friend who used to walk around with a large pane of glass behind his ears, we called him Paddy O'Doors (badumm tiss!)
Thanks, good idea, free is always best! ;-)

As I said in the text "what could possibly go wrong" ;-)
I guess I could probably do it on the stove, but was in the shed for this as it was a bit of an experiment, now I know it works (without me setting fire to the kitchen) the old ball and chain may let me in the house!
Thanks , I did put that in the text but maybe I should highlight it

Have sent a copy from my work email (@nzdf.mil.nz) hope they are clear enough
I can email the scan if you want a clearer copy, just need your email address
These images may be a bit small and fuzzy but hopefully you can read them and use them as a basis for building (sorry they are a snip of a scan of a photocopy!!)
I found out about the lighting a fire a few years back with a battery and some steel wool in my overall pockets!!!!
Thanks, we also have sheep, chickens, geese, ducks, dogs and fish (and full time jobs!!) Looking forward to retirement
the animals take about 45 mins a day ---- the wife much longer!
