    Silly question maybe but why do you want to jack the garage ? And is aluminium strong enough for it ?

    I've got 2 of those jacks now and they are great. They lift a loaded lwb S Class no problem under the diff.

    Haven't bought many tools for a while.
    Last thing was one of the screwdriver sets from lidl for my brother. Got a bit sick of lending him my tools all the time!

    The screwdrivers seem to be reasonable quality, have a 3 year warranty and you get a load of them in a moulded case for £7.99. Bargain.

    I host them in photobucket or similar and then use the IMG code to embed them in the post.

    If you quote my post you'll see the way I formatted the embedded images.

    My tools aren't as clean as that as those pictures were taken a number of years ago. The great thing about having a cutout for each tool is that I havnt lost a single thing from the set.

    I have considerably more than that now, I have a further two tool cabinets making my tool chest slightly taller than me now... and that's just the motoring related hand tools.

    Still no match for Ollys giant snap-on tool chests though. :eek:

    I hope to be sourcing a 'new old stock' Kawasaki GA1400A tonight.

    I am a tool addict.

    Not a new tool as such but today my very kind bro in law picked up my lead welding set that have been in storage for 6 years.

    Tested them out and glad to say they still work perfectly, hoses are in A1 condition, both bottles are half full so it saves me a load of aggro and my welding is as good as it was.

    Happy and contented.

    Could you not TIG weld lead, or is it too soft even for that?
