Re: My Dirty Little Collection..
Thanks for the advice chaps, all taken on board.
As for replacing the screws, I will do that, although the washers have allowed at least 5 mm of play and that was more than enough for at least four roations of the screew in the lug so I'm confident that the lugs will hold but its better to be safe than sorry.
Thank you for your kind words and also the info on the drill bits, I'm on eBay having a gander right now :o)
