I used to drive a Blitz around for a trucking mob.

crash box certainly sorted you out real quick.
Hardly any brakes and armstrong steering.
Yep, Had the lot.

Place had a 6x4 out the back in pretty good condition. Had
a blown
crankshaft and we never got around to fixing it.


A couple of HiBankers inc. accessories, , QED, 4500, SDC2300, Gt1600,
Aldi, A Prado 4x4, A'Van Cruiseliner and a heck of a lot of determination.
Most importantly, A lot of Good Honest Friends. Maybe one day Lucky.

I started on this plug digger today. I’ve already made a couple of picks from the same plough disc.

I’ll be trying to end up with something like this... perfect

Apparently the parabolic shape lends itself to achieving a perfect conical plug... we will see.
It’s a pretty thick piece atm, so plenty of work to get it down to a reasonable weight and thickness.

Thanks GH for the plug digger template.
Plug digger and beach scoop.1619582872_plug_digger_and_scoop.jpg
1619582872_scoop2.jpg
Scoop has 20 and 25mm conduit for handle with 32mm collars, and three layers of the 90mm (one cut down length to go inside, normal and slip joiner) for strength plus an extra wrap around to provide extra support for the handle. Did ok in the wet sand so far but i understand it is no replacement for a good ss one.

I like the patina should just clear coat it.


Wish in one hand and poo in the other , See which one fills up first !

All painted and hanging to dry... had half a can of Rustoleum titanium left from touching up the caravan chassis, so I saved $80 instead of going for the clear coat, which would have also looked nice. But seeing it only cost me a dozen or so angle grinder discs, I thought I’d stay in front..
