Thread: Not the time to be complacent about Covid

To PatJ, well said and I agreed with your comments, science should be about debate and alternative points of view

this appears to have been ruthlessly suppressed and only one narrative reigns supreme, as x military I have had many vaccines and I find the term "anti vaxer" insulting I want to see this one tested properly before I even consider having it, an attitude not unreasonable is it? As I see it no one shoud be coerced by for example no jab or no job-- its an outrage

I wish everyone well

Thread: Easy Start

On engines such as lawn mowers you could put a few drops of petrol in through plug hole or brake fluid works also,

don't need much,I use it to see if an old engine will start before a rebuild

I have a boxford 8" shaper with horizontal and vertical power feeds, it is used frequently and I would not be without it,

There are plenty of operations that can be done on it if one chooses to try, as has been mentioned money does not have to be spent on countless accessories as with

other types of machines, a good site on yt is Rustinox give it a go
