|Thread: Gents waiting-train and Master clocks|
Some of us don't know the reason for the message on the dial. Could You inform Us? Not into clock mechanics but that is amazing. Must keep a yearning to start another project stifled.
|Thread: Wills and workshops|
I bought some stuff at a yard sale from an old moldmaker. Prices not great but doable. Chatted awhile then found a Machinist hand book and bought it. I had Him sign it and it made His day to be remembered that way.
|Thread: Welding hose opinions sought|
Long before I had access to the Internet I did not know Propane was harmful to welding hose. I swapped my Acetylene tank out for Propane. It's been about 30 years ago and still using the same hose with no signs of a problem.
|Thread: Open thoughts|
I don't know if it is the same across the pond as it is in The Colonies, but I keep a rotary dial here at home as when We get a storm and the cell phone towers go on the blink a rotary style will still work, not 100% but still more often.

|Thread: Could Concorde ever fly again? No, says British Airways|
I was lucky to see it takeoff in Columbus Ohio, USA. It took off normally, then when it got up several thousand feet, It was just plain gone. Amazing as I live near a airport and see this stuff all the time.
