|Thread: 18g Nail Gun Pins for Lock Keys|
They are more rectangular than round which works well for thie application, its a very good video.
Paul Lousick, just found this online re nail diameters?
Is SWG different?
Hi, I got the idea from the German chap who made a better video (don't know how to link it!) and he SAID 18g but the ones he used are J30 CNKHA with a large J on the pack. I guess he got the gauge wrong?
I have 3 high quality push key padlocks minus their keys
There is a way to pick these and make a replacement "key" using 6 18g "Finish Nails" (US name?). I have been given some 16g but they are too large. I only need about 2" of them as they come stuck together for the nail gun. I don't really want to buy 1000 of these and throw the rest away.
Wondering if anyone here could perhaps send me about 2" of them if they have any. I am, of course, happy to pay postage etc?

Well said Vic, so true!

Newlyn is also the base reference for tide charts
|Thread: Mystery Pocket Roundlet Tool|
The "collapsed" view shows the screwdriver extended it actually goes right inside hen pushed home leaving the other half of the handle empty, bit storage perhaps?
Hidden in the bottom of a box of mediocre bits and bobs was this little gem:
Beautifully made with makers marks of BAYLISS at both ends, much nicer than the more common plated brass roundlet tool sets. I can only find vague references to BAYLISS in the bicycle world but nothing else. The little pointer has me stumped, looks like a clock hand. The screwdriver bit is detachable so maybe there were more tips at some point?
Any thoughts most welcome!

|Thread: Computer Disaster! Help needed!|
Back up and running with all new Windows 10 system. Trouble was something to do with Outlook 2013 which had been flaky for a while. This had somehow corrupted something on the HDD stopping a full start up.
The actual computer showed up as 100% OK on testing.
Took just over 5hours to sort out and a medium pile of £10 notes for his trouble!
Worth every penny, all files were back as they should be and now my printer even prints remotely which it never did before!
Many thanks to all for the great help on this.
Noel, original desktop background image was a photo of mine, this comes up briefly before going to the green scree as explained in opening post.
My neighbours son who is a MicroSoft software guy is taking a look at it for me this evening, lucky he is visiting for a few days!
will update what happens.
OK, F12 brings up a screen with a diagnostics test. Ran that and initial result is that all is OK!
Running the “thourough test now to see if that is Ok also.
SOD: possible progress! Pressing F2 has brought up the screen! What do I do now please?
You have a PM
Frances, not a laptop but a tower desktop unit?
Delete and escape keys during restart have no effect, same problem, gets to desktop background image for few seconds then green screen.
BTW, If left on the screensaver kicks in over the green screen?
