|Thread: Is society becoming more stupid|
my youngest boy was making stuff on the lathe age 7 albeit with dad supervising and hand on em stop switch.
he can weld as well and did his own bike.
only reason doesn't now is no workshop and everything in storage.
but still goes climbing trees and wading in streams etc.
we even built shelter and slept out in woods last year.
i can send my 18 yr old girl a txt saying bring old clothes and get reply of yay adventure time.
although i worry about their safety i try to give them good memories.
and all my kids know safety first can't count number of times been caught and told off by them for being naughty daddy.

|Thread: will 2mm do?|
only time i have ever been one of the in crowd was when ripped jeans were fashionable first time around.
i do when doing std spokes.
m2 is 1.6mm tapping drill.
so looks like it will work.
Clogs kids want to use some red and gold spokes we have from old project,
will be using old std spokes first whilst getting lengths right.
building a bike project that means extending the spokes.
it's a penny farthing type idea.
planning on using two spokes connected but can't get tap to do it.
spokes measure 1.9-1.96mm should get away using 2mm tap and die to retap ends and make connectors?
thank you will pm you.
ok very off topic here but.
getting new tattoo but want to combine 2 pics.
both images having special personal meaning.
how hard is photoshopping to learn?
considering my eldest boy is on phone as tech support cos not much cop with computers.
and any free programmes out there?
