Any experience of moving a home workshop abroad?

Don’t take TV's with you. I’m not sure about Australia, but here in NZ the gap between picture and sound frequencies is different from the UK.
i ended up being able to tune into sound, or picture, but not both at the same time.
Also as Peter said, fridges don’t seem to last out here due to climate. Ours worked for about a month.
I bought a load of UK electrical plugs and sockets, and have most of my tools fitted with UK plugs which are more robust (& fused), and have UK sockets in the workshop. Any new tools I buy get their plugs replaced with UK ones.

There's nothing worth watching on free-to-air TV anyhow. Smart TV hooked to the Internet is pretty much essential.

Les, also watch out for the drop bears, they love new immigrants Drop Bears. Get used to eating Vegemite, it seems to deter them.
When I lived in Brizzy, cane toads sometimes visited my workshop Cane Toads. Many people used to practice their golf swing on them but in today's PC world this is frowned upon even though they are a known environmental pest.
Hopper, what is the current technique to deal with them?

According to my son, who lives near Darwin, you either bag them up and stick them in the freezer, or take them to a Cane Toad center where the are humanely killed. You should wear rubber gloves when handling them !

I have a couple of pet canetoads that live in the backyard. I figure that wanting to wipe out an introduced species because it kills the native inhabitants is a tenuous position for a whitefella to hold in these parts.
