    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.
