I like the blue... it looks nice and shinny. How many coats did you apply? I'm sure your other tools are green with envy :D.

one coat of the enamel paint I talked about it covers really well with a grey light undercoat.I bought the high speed drill for 20 my friend said I was mad as it looked so bad covered in crap it took me an hour with very strong degreaser till it removed all the crap.These are normally worth a lot of money and cost a fortune new.It goes from 2600 rpm up to 18000 with belt changing only Alistair

Nice drill,that thing's built like a tank.

Just curious ,Alistair.What would the high speed drill be used for?
I can burn drill bits in my normal drill press without any trouble at all:D.
Anyway,you made a nice job of it.I assume the "cup wheel grinder"is the one hidden behind the battery drill?

yes It is the one behind the drill I took another pic but I was restricted to 4 pics here .The high speed drill are very high precision drill they only go up to about 6mm or 8 mm width and use I believe shorter drills than normal but they drill like a boring jig very accurate small holes this weighs about 150 pounds and is very heavy to move around I am inexperienced with them and need to find out more where is his ludship when he's needed probably being well fed by our gert :D have a nice well earned rest John Alistair

Wow! That's a beautiful piece of artwork! I too like the color.
But... As someone once told me; It doesn't meet Ebay painting standards. :D Ya gotta slather paint over the labels, knobs and drill table. :eek:
