    I've got something called a Leah, which brings you brews and cake at various intervals, which is truly fab - but Jeez is it expensive to run

    That's pretty much how it works...and sounds

    Only difference is, it's not a virtual assistant, just an intercom...

    This is on my wish list for the Garage, (what we may wish for in the Garage) would then need less use of the knee pads.

    [QUOTE=Longtimefan;50019]This is on my wish list for the Garage

    On my wish list too!

    There's a few of things that have been more than handy:-
    Combined grinder with belt sander (Draper) - worth it's weight in gold
    Pneumatic pop riveter - bit of a luxury but inexpensive and makes riveting a pleasure
    Vernier calipers - hadn't used them for years but so glad I have them for checking drills, hole sizes etc

    One thing I wish I had is a decent hand held vacuum. I use an old G-Tech one but it's on its last legs and I am loathe to splash out on a decent one just for the garage
