|Thread: Cheap software|
I guess businesses can pay Microsoft prices and set it against tax.
Just get Gimp and LibreOffice for free and have done with Adobe and MS.

|Thread: Got a Good Story About Buying a Lathe?|
"and told the seller to put up the BiN price and when he got back home he would take it. It just so happened that I saw the BiN price before the other chap got back home!"
I had something very similar with a BIN I put up for a buyer at a prearranged time. He spent too long over dinner and was late getting to his computer only to find it had gone to someone else. Of course it was my fault.
|Thread: TORNADO 100mph Steam train TV Program|
Ah sorry, just hover mouse pointer over and it shows where it leads to.
|Thread: ALDI bandsaw|
Should be okay for plastic or aluminium but FAR too fast for steel.
|Thread: High Speed Steel?|
Search eBay "round bar 200mm hss"

|Thread: The Car as an extension to the Work Place !!|
The same happened to me. Women with a child in pushchair and yaking on her phone. Without looking she walked straight off the pavement in front of me. I had to brake hard to stop in time. All I got was an angry glare whilst she carried on talking!
|Thread: EBay Rant!|
I've found eBay usually take the buyer's side in disputes. However it's worth a try using the "live chat" or better still phone them. I won on one occasion but it was hard work.
|Thread: 3/4 scale Landrover|
Looks like a Perkins 400
|Thread: Classifieds with no photos|
Apart from anything else when buying remotely I like to see what I'm getting and a few decent photos make a difference.
|Thread: Washing Work Clothes|
I bought some white ones from eBay when I was still working. Now 6 years and countless washings later they are still okay and will outlast me I think.
|Thread: Securing threaded backplate|
The Asian 9x20 lathe that comes in many different colours and many badged names has a method to prevent the chuck coming off when in reverse,
|Thread: Hi from Cotswolds|
