Thread: How do you fight workshop/shed condensation

Thread: thread of a record 36 vice
05/11/2013 16:26:08

Got one of these years ago when ELF and SAFETY decided to have our metal working shop shut down, if I remember it originally cost around 15.00. another thing was a very large anvil on a stand a few years before this they decided to instruct us that the point must be removed as a student might impail themself. (God there were a few that I would have happily stuck them on backwards) now back to the plot will take mine apart and measure it.
