    Default Bush Mechanic Can no longer

    The Bush Mechanic has to clear the workshop.

    Cerebellum issues have reduced my hand and arm ability
    I can no longer undo head bolts with my finger tips

    So tools up for sale in Melbourne East, can post at your cost, PayPal preferred

    Make an offer for the lot, or some, all used on Renaults, torque wrench, 2 and 3 arm bearing pullers, ball joint separators, jumper leads, spring clamps, tool boxes, lights for those late night disasters, even a tow rope for vehicle recovery

    Jeez, sorry to hear about your issues. I've had a few brain issues too but fortunately not affecting me too much physically.

    This is no joke; I bought a three legged puller last Wednesday to pull a bearing off a pool pump shaft. Bugger.

    If no one grabs the job lot, I'd be interested in one of the claw hammers if they are Australian (or US) made, like a Cyclone Nailmaster?

    Sorry to hear about the hand issues.
    Where is the hedge trimmer used on a Renault?

    Garden trimmer used for cutting the next project from the weeds in the back yard.

    The tow rope is for then pulling it out of the weeds

    Must have items for AF

    Speaking of brain issues, it seems that Edgedweller has not posted for quite some time, and two PMs I sent him have not been feplied to. We had previously been commiserating....

    I had a rather confused pm from Michael Oct Nov last year something about a closed thread of his, Not really like him, I gave him a lengthy reply but haven't heard from him since. He has had an invite to visit when ever in Victoria, and at one time was contemplating a nostalgic trip North and hoping to also visit with Bogmaster as he had also not been well. I can't contact Bogmaster either nor Big Kev and Ursula who seem to have dropped off and their health was not good, emails are not working and phone # I had apparently disconnected. Sent a pm to Robmac, wondering how he is fairing, but no reply.


    I will look through my notes I think I had Michaels (Edges) phone # but haven't contacted him on that for 12 months, so that might be out of date as well. I had an idea that he was moving back to Adelaide for better medical follow up. I hope he is well.

    If any one has up-to-date on any of the above, would be nice to hear how they are going. Old age and deterioration of health catch up with all of us Beano.

    I was communicating with Edge by PM....I don't think I have his email. Yes....he reluctantly moved back closer to civilization. But the last he posted here was before Christmas, and two PMs in recent months have gone unanswered.
