Get the MDF emulsion sealer from Poundland when its about . It seals Hardboard and also Balsa and provides

good key for Solar Film Type Covering .

Also get the Aluminium Paint for £ 1 in Poundland . This is a filler and fuelproofer all in One . I always use it in Tank

Bays and in and around the nose ( Plane ) .

Used to get the sqeeze epoxy in two separate tubes but Poundland et al seem to be phasing these out in favour of

the two cylinder squirt mixing type ..

But If you have been buying the squeeze type over the last 5 years you will see that Poundland have changed

suppliers as the content is much different -- being more liquified with a more reddish colour

I use an A4 REFILL PAD OF plain paper to write anything down to do with Modelling again ex Poundland .

Find it great BUT - ------- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

THERE USED to be 300 Pages . When I was in SE8 ( Deptford) Poundland on last Sat I noticed that these Refill

Pads are now boasting ONLY 200 Pages .

So as Mark Twain may well have have suggested buy this bargain up before it becomes extinct if nothing else but

its visIbly lessening content !!!!

Where you have space in fuzz and the control wire to servo is too short use SMALL chocolate box connectors

to utilise short bits of wire we have knocking about .

I never go beyond joining together 2 Pieces though

I spotted a cordless "Dremel type" drill in Lidl last week. Anyone know if they are worth a punt, please?

Hi , Bought the power corded one they had in last time around , so i had no need of a battery version , but knowing my luck it would need charging by the time i got to use it and so would have to wait for it to charge every time i wanted to use it .

Mains power on when you need it .

But i did buy the large box of bits for it ,

and i bought the solder station as i tend to burn things when i put my other irons down , so having a stand to keep it in a safe place is useful .

And i have used it several times already and works ok .

About the bench drills: something I would not like to miss any more! One of the most important tools in the workshop. The shown drills may all be a bit delicate if it comes to running time - S2 15min.

Bought a similar bench drill 20 years ago -blocked my original motor for 3 seconds (took long until I could grab the switch) and it was already too late!

Replaced it with a Bosch washing machine engine from the broken washing machine of my grandma (built in the 50th I think - indestructible) - now I have operation mode S1 - no runtime restriction
