Unexpected pairing of MXBS & Crunch in order that the heating would live again  :tu:
Mrs Surge decided that it was not warm enough for her to have a long deserved wallow in the bath :twak:

TBF the boiler had dropped below the optimum level  ::)  :dunno:

I’ve had a Swisstool Spirit X for about a month now. Is it normal for the scissors specifically to be so difficult to pull out?  I can get them extracted but half the time it nearly rips my nail out.

I would say that is not normal.

Does it feel like it's rubbing or catching on something? Have you tried a drop of oil on the pivot?

Yes, they need a bit of a stronger pull  :salute:

Since I’ve done it yesterday and it was Saturday - I’ll also post it here

We’ve moved to a new place. New place - new challenges

Today started bright and early - at 6:30 AM to be precise - I woke up to some conversations that seemingly happened right next to our bed in our room After a few moments of careful listening I found a hole in the floor with a piece of a badly cut tube in it and I even could see our neighbor’s place through it. That’s how I could hear their radio or TV loud and clear for the entire night



No action shots, but I used my LM Wave’s saw to trim the excess tube and stuffed a hole with cotton - we’ll see if it’ll work tonight .

Later I’ve found a similar hole in the kitchen. But anyway.

This place may become a tad better for sleeping after I patched that hole, but it totally sucks as a workplace, which is a must for us at the moment. So I’ve found that Jysk has some cool tables at 50% discount, found one I liked and brought it home. Spirit X Plus took care of the rest. And my god I’m grateful for having at - I used quite a few tools during the assembly and the ratchet is absolutely priceless

Here’s the end result:



Here are some action shots:

Having assembled the new table I’ve also tightened a chair I’m about to use - it went way too loose for comfort, but I managed this in no time at all



And even cut some tomatoes and mozzarella for dinner
Dream. Wish. Leave nothing undone. Repeat.
