Yes I know - I bought some Felco catenary wire cutters today in a second hand shop just because they were £20.
Can cut up to 16mm steel wire or 5mm spring steel. All I have to do now is wait until I can use them . . . . Before I retire in 15 years!

The picture of that soldering iron reminds me of years ago as a kid, my dad was soldering something, and was working on the kitchen table, he rested the iron on a saucer and also used it for somewhere to flick the excess solder onto!

As a kid I was soldering linkages up to servo's in a RC boat/car/plane or whatever I had at the time and a hot bit of flux/solder jumped off the end of the iron and launched itself in to the air, boy that cat could fecking jump when it landed on him.........
