    Good stuff.. I have a Kaaz straight shaft monster here. It has a 50cc 2 stroke motor. It wouldnt' start last time I tried it. I'm pretty sure there will just be surface rust covering the magneto (as there is no spark). I dont' have the tooling to pull the pulley and flywheel off to check.

    I also have a much larger KAAZ. Don't know the model number suffice to say that it is impossible to use without a big harness. Not really practical for edging but great for slashing, it is one very serious edger!

    One can never have too many clamps I reckon, I've got about 30 of these Bunnings cheapies and still need more from time to time.

    Sounds the same as the one here .... ex-council ? Big bicycle handles .... 2stroke carby like a motorbike (big piston slides up and down)

    I also have that many. But you have a better than Bunnings one in there I can see. The curved f clamp. I have heaps of these I bought in Japan
    Like your curved laminating

    I work with a Chinese guy whose brother owns a very big factory in China which copies Honda stationery engines and has made enough changes to make them OK to sell worldwide....has significant contracts to supply to mining and industry here.

    Yes the big silver sucker is my go-to when I need to apply some serious pressure.

    I prefer to use a gluing brush to coat both surfaces prior to clamping-up these days rather than use my pinkies..

    A lesson I'd do well to learn. Last weekend it was black mastic and it took days to get off.....

    Hi
    I was watching a You Tube video today - one of those silly 'amazing home made tool' videos which usually aren't very amazing at all - but one thing which was shown was a locking pliers welded to a G clamp. Seems quite obvious when you think about it, but never seen such a thing in a shop, and strcuk me as a good idea. Just thought I would mention it here.

    Default More flarers...

    G'day,

    Maybe another one to stay away from...

    A while back there was a discussion about pipe flaring tools. Being displeased with my screw type Harron branded item...

    Tool Talk [#1628 on page 66]

    I explored eBay and found lots of vendors flogging blue boxes branded "DSZH", they looked good, with the typical attractive pricing. So....

    Tool Talk-dsc00244a.jpgTool Talk-dsc00245a.jpg

    and it hasn't done any actual work yet, apart from putting the thing over the sample flare in the box and nipping it up to see how it went together....

    Another one to put down to experience I suppose, yeah, I could send it back but the receipted delivery post charges will be mind boggling. Time to give the vendor a hard time...

    cheers,
    Bob

    I'm almost certain I've seen brand name (Mole? Irwin?) ones of those somewhere.

    I have one that is chinese junk that works on the same principle. You will find the butterfly handle bottoms out at the correct flare depth and it spins freely. They seem to work for the very limited stuff I do ( R410a flares ).

    I had a look and both Mole and Irwin do them but without the screw part - they're just a big C clamp.

    Many companies make that kind of clamp. Locally however they may be difficult to find because they may not be imported hence local catalogues won't have them. Look further afield.

    But. I have seen that kind of clamp in WA shops so someone must be bringing them in. I think they have been originally made by Vise Grip (in the US part of the world at least). Overseas I have seen such things made by Sandvik amongst others (Facom, Bahco) but I don't think you're going to find these brands here (or just some limited range).

    Hmmm, taking a day off work can be dangerous when there is a tool warehouse close by..https://www.machineryhouse.com.au/S2257

    These guys have absolutely everything in the way of tools a man could desire

    So of course I bought an English wheel didn't I, had a bit of a go and it seems simple enough, now I just have to find a use for it..

    Nervasport mudguards come to mind.... I imagine that the English Wheel was a bit cheaper than that 8-cylinder engine in France that came with a car attached.....

    The Hare Forbes English wheels aren't rigid enough, they flex. You don't get something for nothing. Richmond TAFE tried them and they proved to a poor product.

    They ended up keeping their original cast frame Macphersons supplied unit circa mid 1950s.
