Our doctors surgery has just closed down and locked it's doors we can only go if invited by the surgery so seems 111 or 999 is the only option

I no longer listen or watch MSM, I am just totally fed up of the doom and gloom being broadcast its getting quite alarming, no wonder people are worried sick, the Zombie apocalypse is upon us. My Wife and I are in our mid 70's with the ailments we expect at our age so we are apparently both doomed, I wonder if we are being distracted from other stuff that is happening,who knows.This will run it's course and perhaps we will emerge the other end a bit wiser, I am off to my workshop

Thread: Metric V Imperial Measurement
08/02/2020 12:08:27

As I remember in the Queen's Navy "Scantlings" were used when measurements were considered, and thickness of steel plate was measured in pounds weight, eg a 12" x12" x1" thick weighed 40 lbs,1/2" thick 20lbs,1/8" plate weighed 5lbs and so on, I only use imperial and at my age will continue to do so

Had a couple of emails to say netflix won't accept payments through Google Pay anymore and to update my payment method, also email from Google Pay and my netflix account says only 2 days left to update payment, am I right to be suspicious?

Thread: Aldi Metal Bandsaw
04/10/2019 21:15:37

Should say it is a Milwauke saw not an Aldi. It was 1.25" square bar went through nice and steady,tried to keep the base simple, yours should cope just as good I just like the Milwauke equipment, saw cost £230 battery and charger was extra, total cost around £300 its dearer than the Aldi version I suspect but wanted the back up of a big player in the portable equipment scene.

Good luck with yours Graham
