Im amazed you keep finding Jubes and Dock tanks to work on, I can never find bargain ones to work on when I want one.

In fact now I have started looking for a Dock tank for the fleet the prices has soared  :'( I smell a conspiracy

I've been amassing them for ages... it's just that my speed of amassment outstrips my speed of repair! ;)

Hi Ozy I wish my workbench and shed was as tidy as that my wife would have a fit , in fact she would probably die of shock.

Thanks Bob! What you can't see in the pic is the state of the rest of the room... ;)

I do love a quick and easy job!

This little Arnold arrived grubby of body and minus a coupling rod. Five minutes in soapy water with a toothbrush, a new set of wheels plus coupling rod (which I happened to have) and voila! A really nice little loco that runs like a treat. :)

Get me and my posh new spray booth.... ;)

A little investment to stop everything in the flat being coated in satin varnish spray...

That's what I was using, but I found particularly with varnish that it would all come billowing straight back out at me, coating me/my glasses/clothes/desk/carpet in sticky unpleasantness.

You could sell the idea to SWMBO on the basis that it's less messy... ;)

I think the Domestics Overlord (aka Tim) is use to me be a sticky mess, that's why I get sent out into the yard, apparently it easier to just turn the hose on me to clean me up, still I must not complain it will be getting warmer soon, so the ice cold water will be refreshing then  :D

That's all very well PP, but don't you find the scrub down with the wire wool makes your eyes water?  :worried:

Maybe a rub down with IPA in the winter months would be kinder... certainly warmer... ;)
