Oh i'm not combining the two. I've already super-glued my fingers together tonight so i'll quit whilst i'm ahead  :innocent:
If working with tiny stuff to be glued consider these very small dental cotton points as brushes:https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/500Pcs-Dental-Disposable-Applicator-Micro-Brush-Cotton-Stick-1-5-2-0-2-5mm-S-M-L/292476741850?hash=item4418f8e8da:m:mGbWqiYWkYaN8xTWIpNRmNg:rk:4:pf:0

Are they ever. But my fault really. I positioned myself wrongly and it gave an opportunity to the sow to make a break  for it.... through me. Lesson learn.

At least it wasn't the boar that was with them. He is a big lump and that would have really hurt.

Yes i can. Just a little bruising and a battered pride. Luckily the sow was only about 225 Kg. (the bigger sows or boar would have really hurt). We should have known better than to mix the gilts and sows together when trying to get them into the crush. But hey ho. Lesson learned.

Finished my 1957 surge milker restoration project . I left the two dents in it not wishing to distort the mating face of the bucket and rebuilt the pulsator with all new parts and replaced the hoses and swapped the metal clusters for more up to date ones.
So we have a compact milking machine for the shows, vacuum is from a small refrigeration type vac pump fitted with relief valve and gauge. Nice and light and easy to carry at a show.
And the victim  test goat approves of it too.
