No to sure what this kind of workholding is, I'm guessing they're some kind of hydraulic cylinder, even then I'm not to sure what they're used for, maybe they're for the slight lifting of heavy objects. Yea I guess this is the type of thing one would need to lift something slightly, like heavy stationary machinery, a lot of power and grunt.

My brother is really getting into music lately, getting to the point where I think he may actually pick up an instrument and learn it. Now if he were to pick an instrument such as an electric string instrument, the fuzz factory looks like it would be a very useful bit of kit, just changing the sound of you're instrument on the fly would be very helpful in the creation of music.

The akai eie midi looks like a great bit of kit, I have a few musically minded friend who I'm sure would love this device. For me this kind of thing I'd say has far to many options, the learning curve would take me quite awhile to get over, but once I have I'm sure I'd be able to set the music free.

I used to play some kind of flute at school back in the day, we all did, I wonder if it was anything like the soprano recorder at wwbw. As with most musical instruments I wasn't very good at it, very uncoordinated. It was fun though, 20 or so kids trying to in synch, I remember we recorded it at the time, it would be really cool to listen now.

Wow, this great epiphone wildkat looks really similar to the one I used to own, except mine was black. Had that sucker quite a few years, never managed to get to a point where I could really jam on it. Still plenty of time to learn though, may have to take it up again at some point, just so I can fulfill some kind of rock star fantasy.

I bet my little niece would love these kids drums, she's full of energy and she would go crazy playing on these, I bit my brother wouldn't like that one bit, hehe. I never learned to play an instrument when I was a kid and I kind of regret not doing so, I tried to get into the guitar as a teenager but it just didn't come naturally, so I just gave up and all I know how to play now is the theme song from Dawson's Creek.

I've been skiing once in my life and I wasn't very good at it, I chose boots that were to tight so I started off on the wrong foot. I couldn't stay up for more than 2 seconds and I ended up very sore for a week. One thing I hadn't counted on was how wet playing in the snow could get, I definitely needed a ski boot dryer at the end of the day. I just hope that next time I get the opportunity to play in the snow I have a better time.

Oh wow the madcat at musicians friend looks pretty neat. I tried my hand with the harmonica awhile back, I actually found it very difficult, though I didn't put much time in. When it comes to playing instruments it always feels quite awkward, it might be that I have no rhythm with instruments, I can dance like a star, so I don't know why I find making music so difficult.

The stuff from burlap-tablecloth.com looks like it would make any dinner event just that more classy. I can't say I've to to many fancy dinner events before, on occasions that I have it has been a little daunting but I've always overcome that feeling and had a brilliant time. It's just something that I'm not used to, we've never had tablecloths at home, we always use place mats.

Man these roll off dump trailers look pretty cool and useful. There have been times where these would have be very useful, those times don't come around very often mind you. Though I do see a lot of potential for business use, my brother does a lot of gardening work and these trailers look like they would be very useful in the removal of plant matter, that could possibly mean an up scaling in his gardening business.

I've to say that this is a gorgeous selection of jewelery, I wouldn't mind scooping some of this stuff up while out and about metal detecting. With Christmas just around the corner it may be time to consider looking into jewelry as a special gift for a special someone, but it looks like I may have to do a little overtime to afford something nice.

If you're on the lookout for modern outdoor lighting - click here, there's some quite lovely lighting solutions to be found. We have a lot of lighting out in the garden at home, it really is something to behold once night falls. With summer trying to get going down here I plan on spending quite a few evenings out in my well lit yard.

These certainly do look like the best selection of class rings around, in fact I'm a little jealous that we don't have this as a tradition down here, it would have been cool to get a nice memento upon leaving school back in the day, but all we got was a piece of paper, a piece of paper that we had to get signed in order to declare we were done with schooling, no ceremony, no speeches, nothing, bit of a let down really.

There's been many times in my life that I probably could have made good use of tyvek suits especially when I paint. One of the main reasons I never got into painting was I found it to messy, I would find paint in the strangest places. Mainly after I did my dash with painting I had no good clothes left, they were all paint stained, I probably would be a great painter now if only I dressed appropriately.

The spectrasonics omnisphere at musician's friend looks like a whole lot of fun, the interface and everything looks so easy to use. I've been wanting to create synth sounds for awhile now but I haven't found an easy way to do it, well I haven't been able to produce the sounds I would like, though with this the possibilities seem endless. I know something like this would go well with the music my brother produces.
