Not brass but plated to stop siezure, are you sure they are M7 , usually the japs avoid the odd sizes, which are not that uncommon however in Europe

Re: Tyre levers

These are by far the best I have ever used. Only drawback , they are a bit long for packing in a tool bag/ roll/ whatever. From the company that invented radial tyres. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Michelin-Type-Tyre-Lever-380mm-15-with-Rim-lip-/331863072974 It's quite possible to pay a lot more for th...

Re: DIY During the lockdown

20200507_141905.jpg 20200507_140635.jpg A bit of a change from burning the skin off my hands with 'cement' to burning the skin off my hands with hydrochloric acid. I've been plating a few bits off my DR250R that were painted black when I did it up originally. I had the kit in 2010 and I havent used...

Re: DIY During the lockdown

Re: DIY During the lockdown

Nice job, Steve. I've got a barn-door lintel just like this to do. Actually it's even worse. I've been leaving it because it's a bit scary, and I'm no builder. I've got hold a couple of akros. You might have given me the boost I need to get on with it this Summer. 20200424_154718.jpg 20200423_16415...

Re: DIY During the lockdown

The old lintels were , ' a bit rotten'. The bit of 4x2 is nothing to do with the job. 20200425_121104.jpg The metal strip is part of the steel tyre from an old horse drawn cart , you can see at the left where the old rotted lintel has been made up with concrete, the wood is absolutely crumbling away...
