|Thread: Australian Bush Fires|
If people get upset over a little fun then We better not delve into any really serious issues.The above humor was a little break from the bleakness of the day. This is a very well run forum, a bright spot to look forward to each day.
|Thread: The cultural status of engineers in the UK|
Isn't it strange that in the first half of a show the bad guys never miss, and the good guys cannot hit anything. On the second half the bad guys cannot hit anything and the good guys can't miss.
|Thread: New legislation that could affect us all.|
A coworker liked to go to the big sporting events in the big arenas where the wait was long due to just a couple of loos.When He got there They were heavily used and the prior user invariably left the seat up. His solution was to use the side of His shoe to put the seat down. Seems a better way. Told the wifey this and She about upchucked.
From across the pond,over here if using the Johnny in a public store or such, Someone has decided to standardize the bottom of the paper holder around 18" from the floor, and right around 6" in front of the loo. It guarantees Your knee fouling it. Also puts the loo about 8" from the same wall.
|Thread: Correct use of slitting saw for deep cut.|
I slot 3/8" (Imperial ) deep 303 stainless steel. I do it in 3 passes. Black cutting oil run through a drip oiler into a Noga Mister is the heavy dutiest setup I've found.
|Thread: Reamer size questions|
Would Locktite work?
|Thread: Mechanical Edge Finder, should it be lubricated?|
Years ago My edge finder got sticky. I called Starrett and asked what They used to lube Them with. They said STP. Don't know the British equivalent. Did not want to buy an entire can for just a couple of drops, so I started watching the skips around car auto parts shop and found a discarded can with an ounce or two in it. Still have it, still good after about 30 years.
|Thread: Rod Stewart's Model Railway|
Seen "Maggie May" walking down the street,She seems "Forever young". She had a "Passion" for a "Young Turk."She was"Taking the" Down Town train" to the "All for One " store. "Do You think I'M sexy? "Tonight's the night." "Have I told You Lately", "Your in My heart?"
My eye Doctor uses clear nail polish with good results, and holds with less torque to disassemble. Could color coordinate if needed.
|Thread: More questions on gauge blocks. This time a Pitter set|
It's nice to have something to settle the "argument." Other than the Wife.

|Thread: windoze 10|
Windows made My floppy drive unusable, driver is obsolete, no other available. Have ordered a newer floppy drive and NO I am not a Luddite.
|Thread: Water in fuel|
I have personally seen a foreign cargo jet dumping fuel when close to landing. A descending cloud about 1/2 mile long over Someones farm is kind of hard to miss.
|Thread: Iím done with big pharma‼️|
Don't know what's worse, having a log jam or hitting the wall in back of the loo. Swear it's almost going supersonic.
|Thread: Myford ML10 spindle crank trouble|
|Thread: Ultrasonic toothbrushes|
I always thought "mouse in a can" would be a viable idea.
