    Looking at Dirks Blenheim thread and his clean work bench, and all the discussion about it gave me the idea for this thread.

    Its been several weeks since I've had the time to do anything in the way of cleaning on my bench. See if anyone can top it!!!:lol:

    It's the way they sit in the web. Usually they are spread out into an "X" shape in the web.
    We do have a collection of oddities here. I've been here ten years, been up to Lightning Ridge, out to Broken Hill, down to Melbourne, and up to Brisbane and have never had to jump back from anything....... 'cept the bloody flies............... they knows when you is acommin.

    Wayne, she don't mind, long as I can clear the deck in a hurry.
