Building an observatory: new toys

As the frame for the sliding roof of my observatory is going to be welded up from mild steel I decided I’d take advantage of an offer from one of the online tool vendors to buy a cut-off saw at a discount. My father-in-law then told me that LIDL were selling stands for the princely sum of £40 (a few pence less, actually) so I decided to risk one of those to put the saw on.

As it happens, it’s not bad at all. Very sturdy welded construction and holds the saw nicely. My only criticism might be that it’s two or three inches too shorter than I’d ideally want. That’s easily fixed however, so I shan’t be complaining.
