Spent several days rebuilding my wifes 50 year old 'sideboard' which had cracked and was very wobbly on its legs. Looks brand new and all it cost us was for some new screws, I had everything else required to do the job in the shed, here it is in all it's glory and solid as a rock. I saved her between $2500 and $5000.

The sideboard had to be emptied before I could work on it. found a few pics stashed away in a draw.

Me on my side and still sliding after cannoning into the wall at Energol Corner at Oran Park, got tapped by a BDA Escort at the S's after BP corner, probably around 1975, another night in Westmead hospital and a new (faster/lighter) car to be built after recovery.

Sideboard is good but I don't like the painting of the ceiling fan above it

Bit the bullet and changed my order for the new PS to the up spec'd one, so will pick it up in around 2 weeks time. Also ordered a set of Maxxis Razr AT811s to replace the original tyres.
So what is 45 going to call you now?

Our new shop in Ipswich which I’m running basically by myself has been doing really well which surprised us.
Already paying its way, getting 5 star google reviews and it’s only been open 3 weeks.

The guy that was in there previously said he was lucky to sell a battery a week.

My recommendation is Victron IP65/15
Not the cheapest but one of the best bang for buck chargers you will find.
Water proof , programmable for all types of batteries and can be used as a power supply unit as well as a charger.
Didn’t see your post Guey till later but yep
Great choice
Glad to hear your still happy with your charger Ross.
I have the 10 amp plus all the solar gear for my lithium battery in the ute is Victron and it all talks together.
When the ute is parked up under the carport I use the charger as a power supply to maintain the battery.
I found leaving it on charger mode was no good because each time the fridge kicked in, it would make the charger think it needed to come off float mode and start the charging process again.
Power supply mode supplies 10 amps at 13.8 volts constantly.
