Again – I cleaned up the old cross beam and coated with a clear acrylic – the timber pegs for the resister really didn’t need much cleaning and I didn’t want to compromise the thread that is on the top for the resister to screw on – the coolest thing about them is they stopped using timber and moved to metal bolts in OZ in the late 1800’s – and this was my first attempt at mitre sawing – I almost got it right – hence I am keeping this set – and at 3kgs each – my books are going nowhere!!!!!

I don’t mean to nitpick but the white things are ceramic insulators, but you knew that didn’t you. The sight of those insulators takes me back to the old days when I was fit and strong and could climb like a monkey up those power line poles, ahh, those were the days…

Ahhh – well – I am very reliant on the young lads bringing them down off the poles to cut them up and load the car for me – so I know what you mean LOL – and I have heard the guys call them both insulators and resisters – tho maybe it has more to do with some of the shapes???? Not sure – and lets face it Joe Public wouldn’t know the difference LOL – as long as you and I do – tho I shall make sure I correct the error in my speil – thanks!!! And glad it brought back great memories for you :)
