  • Hello from a colonial Aussie

    G'day to everybody on the other side of the world. I reside on the western side of Australia, otherwise known as Western Australia. Have just built, and my shed just completed so I will soon be set-up and ready to learn a lot from all the woodies out there. I am a bit late on the introduction but the time difference threw me a bit. Anyway, here I am, 70 years young and going OK.

                  Hi John B, Have been in Bunbury for about 12 months, but many moons ago was brought up in Yanmah/Manjimup. Departed and did 8 years in WRAAF among other things. I have a nephew (retired now) who did quite a stint in the Police Force, (TRG etc). Anyway, Kal's a nice spot if the heat doesn't get you. 16 years in Carnarvon & Geraldton cured me. Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

                    I had to replace the motor on my Hawk that we purchased new in 2002. I just called up Hawk & they had me send them my motor the power switch. He needed to collaborate the new motor and to my power switch. The new motor was sent back with in the week. I did this back in 2018 and it was a little...

                    I've tried label paper as well. It peels off reasonably well, although different brands will probably perform differently. When it doesn't come off easily, I have a little heat gun that makes release quickly. When I have used 3M spray adhesive and left it on for too long, a hair dryer or heat gun...
