    Ive often wondered about the plasma cutters, I saw one at aldi for 299, but thought I wouldn't use it enough. I have the small makita bandsaw which is fantastic for making precise cold metal cuts doesn't leave sharp burrs the need grinding too. Amazing tool

    I need to buy buy a decent pressure washer.

    My last big purchace was a Cembre hydraulic cable crimper. I can now crimp cables up to 400mm2

    But I'm really looking at a decent lathe and a milling machine.

    I picked up a petrol pressure washer at a garage sale recently, and has far more balls than any electric washer I've ever owned. It's only rated at 3200psi but it does blow well. Can't think of the brand name right now, but it's an aussie made job, with a Honda motor to drive it. Another benefit of it is I can plug in to my water tank which only has gravity pressure and it will self prime and suck the water through the motor without any performance loss.

    I think @MudRunnerTD has a spit water tho, that thing is amazing

    Pressure washer wise, we’re saving like crazy for the new Stihl 4,200psi with power head for stripping off stubborn bark on logs.
    https://m.stihl.com.au/STIHL-Product...45/RB-800.aspx
    Were kindly lent a demo model to test and crikey it’s a commercial use weapon of a thing!
    I believe once psi on pressure washers goes above 4,500psi a licence or some user certification might be needed hence while Stihl kept it under that Nanny number?

    I was in the local Sydney Tools today Nicco and checked our your new sliding compound saw mate. I nearly got a hard on!!! Farking nice bit of kit.!!

    20 years ago I had my own cabinet making business employing 20. At the time there was no test and tag requirements and 18v was not really in existence. Some 12v and 14v but really only a drill.

    In my shed under blankets I have a full workshop of tools. I sold my thicknesser and vertical spindle moulder, 1 of my router tables and one of my sliding compound saws.

    I have my 18v Makita kit but even that was bought before brushless technology. I have been off the tools for over 15 years and cant justify big purchases for kit I rarely use and no tax break for it these days either.

    I have a Vertical Spindle Sander and a 24" drum sander under a blanket. A 14" band saw, scroll saw, table saw, compound saw, router table, linisher, drill press, stuff. Lol.

    I really like that 18v band saw a lot. I wouldn't mind something to cut steel more than just the cut off saw.

    18v blower is pretty bloody sweet. Favourite kit is probably the simple impact driver cause Tek Screws ROCK and the 1/2 inch rattle is pretty sweet too.,

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I use one of those 12v mattress blowers a bit of heater hose as an adapter and 3ft of tintanium tube [3/4"]
    like yours works a treat.
