This set of lost tools were found on a site today. If you know the owner tag them so we can return their gear.

Top comment: “I’ve seen this done. Just a bit of sikaflex needed. The exciting part comes when the drain blocks up and the plumber puts his machine down to clean it”

Thanks Lee!


Top comment: “Nevermind that, WTF is going on with the lintel beams in the background…”

Original post.


“Was called out to this job to fix all the fuck ups. Saw something looked odd about this cleat and noticed the bolts from the other side were fairly loose. Closer inspection I found that the bolts were cut in the middle, drilled and glued in either side. Good way to support a quad beam supporting all upstairs” Thanks Michael!

Top comment: “I like the roman concept where bridge designers had to stand under their bridge while the scaffold was removed. Similar concept should apply to all trades.”

Original post.


Beams aren’t generally load bearing right? Thanks Lachlan!

Top comment: “Not really that bad, might get a bit of local stress where it’s been cut jagged, but the section modulus hasn’t changed too much in this case.
Depends if the engineer has thrown some moment into the columns with some kind of portal action or something.”

Original post.


Thanks Bill!

“My old boy was a builder and left me this chisel. Over 30 years old. Just sharpened it. Should i retire it for old times sake or put it back in the tool box for tomorrow ??” Thanks Jason!

Top comment: “I’ve got a wooden handled chisel that’s been in my family for 5 generations. Over 120 years. In that time it’s only had 5 new handles and three new blades.”

Straight as. Thanks Keegan!

Creative ladder use! Sent in by a few people. Must be doing the rounds.

Top comment: “i actually have no problem with that set up. ladder angle might be a little steep but provided enough cable ties were used to secure the step ladder, im sure it’s safe enough. like to see the face on an HSE guy walking in though”
