    Which items do you keep in your tool kit? Which have been of most use - or do you just use a break down service?

    screwdriver with interchangeable bits, pliers, sticky tape, set of stubby spanners, adjustable wrench and a multi meter. All have been handy at some point and you‘ll need some of them anyway if you have bicycles.

    When something breaks I buy two so I have one for a spare next time. This guarantees it will never go wrong again. I have bits for caravans and motorhomes going back 20 years in my garage :Doh:

    Apart from the last three that's mine too. I also have few bits of choc-block connector. And I've used nothing from it. Any fuse that's blown has been at home & self-inflicted.

    Obviously you need an 'ammer, so why settle for the wrong one ?


    When a bloke is doing a very technical job, he has to deliberate which 'ammer he needs.

    Slowly going through his full set, scratching his chin, he finally settles on the right one and proudly says ..

    "This fucker'll do " :Smile:

    So, with no further ado, I have the perfect solution for all jobs. An 'ammer can never be too big :Smile:
