    Ply lasts okish then you slam another on the top. Paint has to be sturdy or keeps peeling.

    But then I heard of a place that does stainless commercial benches so I got a cover with a small kick step at the edge so jets don't roll off. $230 of why didn't I do this before?

    Kinds dodgy place all Asians workers boss spoke English, pay in cash.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    yeah, my sons MDF i have stained with a stain three coats and three coats of clear poly not sure how it will last but i did it as i knew the MDF would not last in my damp tropical climate without stain or poly.
    it will be interesting, personally i suspect the mdf will last better than the Ply as it has some give. The Ply feels kind of tinny.
    i used a shit ton of off cuts so its pretty much solid 2 inch timber underneath my plywood one though.
    My dad used to top his with Aluminium printing sheets, shinny one side newspaper of the day the other.
    These are about .4-.6mm aluminum its used to print newspapers you can cut it with scissors but it lasted over 20 years.

    i have a sink for hands and a parts wash to go at one end
    I was going to put a SS benchtop in this area but they are generally only 450-550 wide rather than 600mm so gave up
    i do know a place here that does SS fab for Dairy.

    don't suppose anyone replaces oil filters by banging a screwdriver thu them nowdays ?

    I should buy a proper filter remover I guess , bad habits don't die do they ? lol. (Repco ?).

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    The cup ones are easily the best. I try not to work on cars, but I won't pay for oil changes. Some cars have cunty places for filters. Wife's old laser was worst. Shit place to get to with added joy of burning your wrists on exhaust.
