What kind of ax is that? Is it just a fancy wood chopping ax or for throwing? dispatching organic, free range squab?

it's categorized as 'forestry hatchet'.
been looking for a small forestry hand axe/hatchet. mainly for light wood working + camping etc.
fancy swed axes—granfors, wetterlings etc—are way too pricey, while all the american brands are outsourced from c-country.
this one came with good reviews + reasonable price and directly from Germany.
finish quality is pretty impressive. light and solid.
guess it's an expansion of collecting 'steel' pieces.

Yes. Tube notchers are frowned upon over hand mitering but I can't resist nice looking tools.

Not bad, indeed. Who'd you order from?

Big props to @cdale4ever for these 1983 sealed hubs, Wow, never seen them before, not even shopwear on these puppies. I've always associated sealed bearings with sansin, sunshine and suntour

Two questions, is it possible to refresh the grease in the sealed bearings without major surgery and second, can I build these with a 7 speed freewheel for fit a 126 OLD rear. The blueberry Cannondale would be worthy of them. Thanks.

Generally the term "sealed mechanism" refers to a regular adjustable cone-and-cup bearing with rubber seals added to keep the dirt out. As such, they are rebuildable like most hub bearings. On the other hand, sealed cartridge bearings have integral rubber seals that can often be pried out with a sharp knife point and the bearings can be washed out and relubed but the bearings themselves cannot be disassembled. The best route with sealed cartridge bearings is usually to replace the entire bearing cartridge. Cartridge bearings have become so common that they are usually referred to simply as "ball bearings" and most people outside the bike industry have no clue that adjustable cone-and-cup ball bearings exist.


Back on topic, today I got a box of 100 DT spokes in the mail. I only needed 18 spokes to finish a rear wheel. Seems like I had the wheel done before the mailman had gotten to the other end of the street.

Clubman, you can probably put a 7-speed freewheel on, but you have to try to find out.

This stuff came in the post for me yesterday.

A new router, not to fill a need but just for experimentation. I like to tinker with wifi networks.



An 8-speed chain for my daughter's bike which has a 2x7 drivetrain.



Some bronze wool, to see if I can buff up the windshield and rear window on my wife's old car.

They better be good. They were not cheap. As I'd paid for them by debit card I thought I'd better come clean with the mrs when she saw the box:

Me: "that box was 150 euros"

She: "Mmm. And how much were the tires?"
