they're the most useless things, all they do is rust on and make changing the disk 10x harder than it needs to be. seriously leave them off

Finally got around to doing something. Mister Chisel was responsible for the original carnage but there was really no other option at the time.

Thanks for all your input folks. EBay to the rescue again

Comparison for length (as you do). There's only 1mm in it although the angle makes it look more.
