  • Can I have just a tiny, tiny,tiny gloat please.

    Saw Malc the scrappie at the recent ME show and he told me he'd seen a tub of new allen screws with some feather keys mixed up in them at the local yard

    So this morning popped down, only 1/2 mile away, and had a good look thru.
    As Malc says all new screws but all sizes and assorted, not bothered about them, had assorted boxes before and they never get sorted or used.

    However grabbed all the keys and a decent quantity of M8 allen sets, 80mm long and being threaded all the way means they will cut down into any special size.





    8 x 25 back left, 8 x 30 back right, 10 x 50 foreground and the cap screws.

    Might not appear useful to many people but in the motor game virtually every motor needs a new key so very useful to me.

    Bunged then on top of a 45 gallon drum and asked how much?

    Boss walked over took a quick look and said £2, about $3 for the lot.

    Dead chuffed with that, not a massive gloat and probably only suit me but nice.

          The keys will roughly halve tomorrow, I'm going to give half to one of the rewinding companies who I have very good relations with.
          This way it helps both of us.

          They often help me out with the odd motor if they have one kicking about.

                when I was working in the shop, 2 jobs ago we whould just take square stock cut to length and let the assemblers belt sand the ends to fit. Still, free is best. No point in buying key stock by the foot.

                    Even a small gloat that actually gets used is better than my big gloat TPG that will spend most of it's life on the shelf waiting for the day that it gets to be used.

                      Nice haul John.

                      If I recall correctly, the keys are approximately 0.50 $ each and the screws are about 3$/lb at the place where they have the best deals at home. Bulk keystock is about $2.50 per foot at the best priced place in Cowtown last I checked.

                      Best of all, they are all items you use on a regular basis. Gloat away....

                      I'm only very jealous.....
