All God’s Chilluns Gots Shoes… Or at least the Hermes 2000 does!

The mashed-up grey ones are the original H200 feet. Pretty good match! $2.49 at Ace Hardware.

Wow, both much better looking, and waaay grippy! I won't need a typing pad for this one.

  3. Happy Feet! You should have seen the look on the bloke’s face (yes, I’m sorry, we really do say ‘bloke’ over here, or chap) in my local hardware shop when I asked him for half inch tap washers. He said, “These are supposed to be half inch, but they are more like five eighths.” And then I asked for four where two’s the usual. And I said, “Don’t worry, they’ll be fine, they aren’t for fixing a tap.” I WAS tempted to tell him they were for replacement bushes to an Olympia SM4, but I thought I’d leave him to ponder the enigma indefinitely.
