I've been using some of my bigger stuff on the scale model glider I'm building and had to produce some holes in some awkward places. They are pure tungsten drills that I bought years ago. The box is about 3" square and it holds 50 drills including a couple of rotary rasps and a couple of milling bits. All have 6mm shafts and fit my Dremel a treat

I have been led to believe that they started out in Silicone Valley across the pond and once they were blunt they were resparpened and sold off. They weren't cheap either as they cost me £15 :eek:

This is the fuzelarge of that model. A DFS Habicht 1936 German gull wing glider. It will have a 4m wing span.

Looks like good work. But once they get to be that size, you may as well just make it a bit larger so you can fly it directly :-)

I hope you post more images as you build- maybe like one of Baz's threads?

ard, you don't need a licence, but due to the idiots who have picked up on flying the quad-copter things we now have to be registered with the CAA, Civil Aviation Authority. I'm definitely not saying that all quad fliers are idiots, just a minority of clowns who have almost screwed for the rest of us. Any RC aircraft is officially classified as a 'drone' by the way.

I have been asked quite a few times why I haven't learned to fly Jack. My stock reply is that I have seen just how I land :eek: The things are radio controlled and that translates to always radio and some times controlled :evil:

Could you post a link to 'one of Baz's threads' please Jack? And I will post some photos on there, or I can post them on the Hand made from wood, fibre, clay, porcelain, glass, wool, leather, metals..... Forum?


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

This hammer came up while sorting through "stuff" in the depths of the garage a spell back. I don't want to imagine the hurt this 21 oz. thing would bring in a day of smacking nails now. There is a cheapo Stanley metal 18 oz. handled hammer that gives me equal chills.

Some of these tools like that are super handy and convenient. One of these leveling lasers would have been great for some garage shelving I had done up. With poor results BTW.

I was measuring up the house for some updated flooring and running a tape measure was a PITA and difficult to do some measurements. Bought one of those lasers to measure and I had the whole house including closet spaces measured out in about 20 minutes. Measured out the landscaping to figure out sqft to help calculate fertilizer application amounts. Since then it has been sitting. :-(

dad called them Birmingham screwdrivers.
I know what it's purpose (to bang in screws rather than use a screwdriver) but no idea who coined that phrase. He was of English stock :-)

A few days back replaced the water pump in the commuter and getting some of the back bolts out were a PITA due to clearance. The ratchet had so much backdrag that I couldn't get a good swing nor could I get the other hand in to hold the extension. Was so slow going.

Picked this up:
