One of the doctor's offices in the Bay is closing, and they have a skip for the trash.
I found this compressor last night. It was a bit wet from the rain, so I stood it in front of the electric heater I bought at the market on Sunday for .50c and dried it out.
It works perfectly - now I can finally hook-up my airbrush and do some graffiti stencilling.

tyres not tired-out

How's this for a great idea for a bike rack!
I will look into making one for the Men's Shed North Shore....
For info on the Shed see:
And/or read my Shed blog:

free fetta

With winter here the skip at the back of the local supermarket is easier to approach unseen.
I picked out these six packets of fetta cheese last night, still cool from the chiller - expiry date tomorrow!
Delicious in salads....

Overseas pupils from the local language school dump their old phones etc into the bin.
I found this phone today - complete with charger & sim card.
