    That cast wedge is something. I thought I was looking at some broken concrete at first glance.:msp_scared:

    I had to weld a broken crankcase casting a couple weeks ago that was almost that bad. It welded bad, ended up fluxing it and then running hot and dirty to get a good layer to build on. Took about half a rod just to get the porosity filled. I hate this cheap azz cast stuff that is being sold these days. Companies that turn out turds like that should be ashamed of themselves.

    Yeah it was a shocker. However $45 for a Stihl alloy wedge was a tad steep. I have 4 of these wedges left so when they've fallen apart I'll use something differerent.

    I sometimes think you're in the same boat old son.

    Thanks Rudy. I was going for the more sophisticated and educated accent but ended up with a hungover smoker's voice suffering from the flu. Sadly I wasn't hungover, don't smoke, and wasn't ill...

    Would you like me to do the commentary/voice overs old son ?
    Shame is I can only do the educated accent, I'm totally uneducated.
    Or I have a mate here that has a voice and a half, a deep baritone and with that GPS polish.
    It'd take your vids to the next level. :D




    I have to say I dig the husky voice, I think I could turn. :monkey:


    hahahahahahahahaha

    Stay strong brother, go listen to your GPS, it will steer you straight. (Set it to female voice first)

    What do you charge?

    I wasn't using the Husky at this point Rick. Or the Stihls or Dolmars. You could turn to Huskys if only you'd break out of your current Makita mindset.

    Sorry, my bad, I forget we're reaching a global audience here.

    GPS in this context means Great Public Schools, ie. the elite Private schools where it can cost upwards of $30,000/yr to send your kid/s.

    I grew up surrounded by neighbours that sent their kids to these schools, one of my best mates went to one as did a lot of my friends/associates where I live now but moi, I'm public school through and through :D
    Generally one acquires a polished and indeed sometimes plummy accent when attending these schools, moreso the gals than the blokes though.
    I just had a Mum that was a stickler for correct pronunciation so now all the snobs around here think I'm one of them but can't quite work me out. I love it. hahahaha

    Now talking GPS navigators, a mate a few years back bought a Merc SLC and you should've heard the English, but even better French voices in his GPS.
    Ooh la la, I was in luurve, couldn't understand a word she was saying with my schoolboy French, but she sounded hot :msp_wub:
    I'm a sucker for a plummy English accent in a girl too, something like how Rachel Ward sounds :D

    I'm pretty sure you can get Nigella Lawson on satnav too, she has a pretty good English accent...

    Mates rates, or a Cutty Cutty Longtime Chain, whichever's the cheaper.



    I know, I know, but my OCD won't let me mix blue and Orange, as much as I love Orange saws :(

    Yep, sounds pretty good to me too.

    Have you ever noticed that they never shoot Nigella from bum on or even show her derrière at all ?

    Apparently it's in her contract according to an English friend of mine who also has a great accent and who is also very cute and has a very cute sister in the UK TV industry. :D

    Sigh. I know too many cute girls.

    P.S. I know a Russian TV presenter by the name of Olga, but don't let the name put you off :msp_biggrin:

    That's my mum Rick. Tone it down a bit old son.

    Cutty cutty not cheap mate. $2 chain but $500 worth of 3rd world filing.

    Just shut one eye mate, you'll be fine.
