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.

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

Apparently someone in the USA tried to log into my account.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

@ Sandgrounder,

I was logged in when I rang up.

Ed Duffner,

I'm unable to reset my password. I cannot access my account. My password is not rejected.

@ mechman48,

Thanks George, I did wonder about that.

@ Sandgrounder,

When I ring the free number, I'm asked for a six digit number, from where?

30/08/2016 21:36:25

@ stevetee, Done the SSL thing, no change.

@ XD351, When you try to pay for an item on ebay and ebay tries to link to paypal .

Using Win10 desktop PC.

30/08/2016 18:53:59

Hello everyone,

I've had no access to my PayPal account for a week, to date.

Confirmed an item on EBay, then was denied access to PayPal​, error 70360.

I've tried proving my I.D, and had no response from ​PayPal.

Googled error 70360, I'm not on my own.

Tried removing cookies, to no avail.

Any suggestions welcome.

Regards, Bear..

Ian, That is a brilliant job.


Thread: Replacement Paint Cans
07/08/2016 22:39:54

Talking of paint tins, three weeks ago I was trying to get the lid off a small tin of boat varnish hardener.

As the lid was being prised off, there was a loud bang, the lid hit and cut my nose, just below my specs bridge.

The contents were solid. Moral of story, cover lid with a cloth.

Regards, Bear..
