If you have mains voltage, or whatever you are powering the door with, you could attach a neon or led, and have it lit permanently (Behind the door).

Re; Velux windows, we have just had two replaced free, even out of warranty. One was cracked the other was OK.

​Google Velux for info. They only do certain sizes.

​Good luck, bear..

My solution; Mechanical counter, activated by a mains relay or solenoid, coupled with mechanical linkage.**LINK**

Of course, it depends what's in your 'Junk stock'. Plus the safety issue.

I can stoop pretty low, maybe a solenoid out of a washing machine, (Water inlet control).

Good luck, bear..

"If Nick was looking for 180V DC he won't have found it. The board is probably OK.

It's likely the fault is further down the chain."

Agreed, Neil, I just wanted to move on.

I thought it was well presented, lady presenter.

What about the scaffolding, not allowed to touch the tower. That is a work of art too.

To prove the input/ RF filter board, remove mains in & mains out, join them together, like for like. Power up, Go = board duff. No Go = fault elsewhere.

Good luck, Bear..

Hi Russ,

Not sure what size, but old (Copper) coins have their uses.

Thread: Clarke drill press

Metalworker Drill press, capacitor failed. Got one from RS Components, approx. £6 post free,

The new capacitor wouldn't fit inside the box, so strapped it to the motor. Perfect!

Just five minutes after J.S. had posted the pictures, only the top half inch was visible, the rest was green & yellow horizontal stripes, then a few minutes later just "'X's".

I've seen them today, nice one John.

Thread: Keyless chuck so tight can get hole way out

Slightly O.T.

I have a Clarke Metal Worker drill press, always had bother with the keyed chuck, lack of grip.

Since reading the posts about using all the positions to tighten the chuck, its been fine. Thank you.

Have uninstalled it, and installed a new one. Got the headache, free download!

The six digit number materialised tonight, Freephone called and got it sorted.
