    Old Nails, Rust and vinegar @ HD

    Plane blade setting hammer

    "I bought my Plane Setting Hammer for a 1000 pound sterling. Whilst using the hammer, I discovered my 10 quid Stanley worked just as well ............ bugger, got shagged on this deal." Nice Accent they have, too bad -the personality doesn't always match.

    Hums, but I can't place the tune....

    Check connections then check fuses. If it has fuses, you could have a blown fuse on one leg.

While checking windings...

    Concrete Floor Leveling?

    Built more building construction projects than I like to admit to. My experience has shown me the only concrete leveling that is effective is expensive if you really want level.
