New bench – almost!


A couple of friends came round today to help me put a new bench together. It was a great day as time in the garage is limited, but so much more productive with a little help. It wasn’t ideal as we ran out of gas for the Mig, so used my stick welder for the base. I think it still looks pretty good though.

Rather than rush it, we decided to leave welding the top until we’ve got gas. The plan is to take it all to a friends workshop where it’s all there ready to go. The finished product will be that little bit better, and as the basis for everything else – why not??

It’s something I’ll only do once (hopefully!), so let’s do it right.

And in other news, what a weekend it’s been for hearing from old friends! I’ve had a few emails from people around the world, some I really didn’t expect to hear from. Maybe the new year is a catalyst for reaching out? Either way, it’s great to hear people’s news. I will be replying in due course!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
