    First attempt at off roading this week in Spain. Too old for it! Absolutely knackering and aching all over

    Great photos, SleepyOwl! I like the idea of off roading but NOT the reality. I always felt the same way about mountain biking too. I'd get all excited to go out on the trails when I bought a mountain bike. Then I'd get out there and think (well, yeah say it out loud quite frequently), "I HATE THIS! Sold the mountain bike quite quickly. :joy::joy::joy:

    I was quite bored this afternoon! :confused:
    20191108_154302.jpg
    It started off as a fresh tub of 800 assorted stainless washers. But it arrived all shaken/mixed up. So I sorted out the compartments & added 200 extra M6 & 100 extra M8. A neat little storage solution for 1100 washers.
    Yes, I am a sad [email protected] But in this instance, I'm blaming the cold weather, rain & my incurable OCD :kissing:

    Totally agree. Was thinking of getting a bike for green laning The idea sounded great but quickly realised on this outing that I just love riding on the road. Luckily I didn’t actually buy the dirt bike!

    Not at all mate.
    The original tub was from Ebay & cost £5.99 inc p+p. The 300 extras were from Toolstation & cost £3.60 but that was with my 20% discount.
    Just under £10 for the lot. The ones in the main tub are allegedly stainless? The ones from Toolstation are zinc plated.

    Ebay link at £5.99 with a "best offer" option...

    You're most welcome Sir.
    But please bear in mind that the link I posted isn't the exact set I purchased. When I tried to post a link it displayed all my address info etc. Maybe that only appears on my screen because I purchased them?

    I found that link I've posted by searching for "790 stainless washers"
    It has a best offer option that mine didn't have. But check the sizes are suitable for what you req? My set goes from M12 down to M4 & the tray has more compartments.

    Why, it looks almost like a piece of art, DD! ;) Being bored and being OCD are a dangerous combo. Unless you want to come clean out my garage!

    I can wait, DD. ;) No doubt the wait will be worth it from the looks of those washers. BTW, how the heck did you get a big hole in your garage floor??
