    New post of seating for the modern safety cycle, smidge heavier than the old one (216g vs 195g), but with 100% less cracks

    A mint condition, but used, MacBook Pro 2014.

    Haters gonna hate!

    Serious note: I needed a Mac to study for my ACMT and didn’t want to keep running virtual machines. :)

    Some rack ears. So I can vertically mount a 1u setup next to my monitor.

    seems like the sort of thing will be knocked over by a fly breathing too hard.

    Nah, rock solid.

    I’m quite pleased with it.

    So you have a 1U case standing up right. I need pics as this seems way to unstable.

    Oh man it's nice... I wish I had picked a new one up years ago now. I knew the one I had was probably junk, I just never realised how bad until now. I can't even remember where I got it. I think a mate gave it to me maybe 15 years ago, I now suspect because it was junk and he replaced it.

    Made damn easy work out of the grout on the bathroom tiles - mould-b-gone... Did try them on the tiles behind the cooker but that wasn't so successful, that's definitely a job for the steam cleaner.

    Depends what you're working on. I almost made a bit of a mess when I tried to scrub the toilet with one (it's never been properly clean since we moved in, despite repeated scrubbings) and yeah... I soon realised how stupid an idea that could be. Luckily it was only a cheap 12v cordless drill! Tiles and grouting on the other hand? All the crud & cleaning spray was flung sideways, ready for me to clean up the old-fashioned way.

    I guess a flexi shaft would also potentially solve the problem!

    A flexi shaft solves many a problem.

    Nah, paid £50 (edit: £48.36) for it direct from amazon in October last year but RRP is around that.

    edit: And another £25 for a 1U rack mount front panel for home use. Will be able to take the front off and use the original front for portable use.

    A set of ST170 LHD headlights because I have an idea that I don't want to butcher RS lights for. Also LHD, which is somewhat important.

    Not as many as a stiff shaft can cause...
