My old cast iron bike stand, I can take the rubbers off and use it to jig up stuff that I want to weld or braze.
I don't like to carry it far, but on the plus side its pretty stable with a tandem in it.

I had a Lidl special before this one, it’s still going, and I bought it about 8 years ago, it’s astonishing really, it cost about 30 quid, IIRC.

Silicon grease.
Well, to be honest not today, I inherited it 20 years ago, but just opened it today to service the O rings etc in the head of my track pump.
Locking on mechanism now so much better.

The airbrush fairy brought me a bottle of Vallejo RLM04 yellow acrylic paint - does that count?

Waiting for some loctite 641 from a company called Bearing King.

Ten days, two e mails and phone calls not answered- no show on my 10 ML tube of happiness

Then got an e mail from a review site asking for a review of said company and now all channels of communication have been opened as if by magic when i gave them 1 star...full apology and allegedly first class post..whatever

Hopefully the supersix will be in action sooner rather than later.

Took off a worn 24T sprocket a couple of days back.

Should I leave it under the pillow for the tooth fairy?

Colnago Fork Expander (90mm) :mrgreen: No more worrying about covering the expander bung with the stem, anywhere on the steerer above the top of the head tube is covered with this. Shame I just went back to a fork with a metal steerer but oh well i've got it now.

Well I’m all lubed up and ready for action:

Semi-Fluid Grease as recommended by Brucey (thanks again) and a Beta 1750M mini grease gun for the Silkolene Pro RG2 recommended by Fastpedaller a while ago.
