Do you bench press the "bench" grinder? How stable is it with those spindly legs? i have mine bolted to a concrete floor on what is essentially a 4" steel pipe as the support. It makes the whole shop vibrate lol.

No lol I had no where else to put it :P
It's pretty stable. More stable than the stupid plastic drawer tower it was atop before. The legs are galvanized pipe nipples... Pretty strong.

Yes, essentially. Lol.

I'm happy with it. I can take it out of the garage so I don't need to vacuum and I have more space and all that.

Fine, if that didn't please you...

Mwuahahahah :P

I prefer non-fiction although I did used to read Jack Higgins when I was younger as he had some decent WW2 novels.

One of the good things about non-fiction books, the quotes:
"At one stage I stopped for a moment to see how things were going and a Hun dropped not ten feet away. I had my pistol in my hand and without really knowing what I was doing I let him have it while he was still on the ground. I hardly got over the shock when another came down almost on top of me and I plugged him too while he was untangling himself. Not cricket, I know, but there it is" - a New Zealand captain serving in Crete.

Only someone of the Commonwealth would describe shooting two defenceless, tangled soldiers as "not cricket" and then move on with things :D

Edit: Thanks JSR, will check them out when my broadband usage rolls over this week.

Fallschirmjäger dropped with their weapons in separate canisters, tragic.

In the sense that it was a waste of life, indeed. What was Student thinking?

Not that it would have made much difference to the actual battle as the island was lost anyway.
