|Thread: Dialect expressions|
Calling someone un-eppen was popular in Lincolnshire.
Meaning clumsy, breaks anything - my wife is un-eppen.
|Thread: 24v dc motor powering a drill press|
11A at 24v = 264W.
and this thing produces 950W output.
Where can I get one of these motors which surely defies the laws of physics and generates its own energy?
Where is the hidden nucleur reactor?
|Thread: What Did You Do Today 2019|
Me too - but then I'm no good at biking either.
No doubt golfers might come up with something familiar to them.
Magazine editors might use a part from a linotype machine? Link
Whatever floats your boat, but I can't help thinking there are other, more comfortable, handles.
Raised a smile, thanks for posting.
|Thread: What is this grinder?|
Yes Michael, all ferrets need trimming occasionally.
Perhaps you would want to get into "hobs," "Jills," "gibs" and "sprites" and a "business"
Back to the prologue...
|Thread: Metal Cutting Power Saw|
Me too Phil. I tried other tat around and came to the conclusion you get what you pay for - again!
|Thread: New coffee maker - disgusting taste!|
How things have changed since I used to order a coffee in a milk bar with one sentence.
"I'd like a cup of coffee please"
"Yes Sir - cappuccino, latte or Americano?"
"Is that with milk?"
"Full, semi skimmed or skimmed?"
"Hot or cold milk Sir?"
"Would you like the new Brazillian blend?"
"One shot or 2?"
"What's your name so I can write it on the cup"
"Clive of India"
"That'll be £2.80 please"
"Card or cash sir?"
Frowns, thinking this bloke's too old to be paying by phone
"Do you want a receipt Sir?"
"No thank you. I wonder why there is a queue?"

Have to confess Mike, I ate them all. What happened to Lyons anyway?

Fray Bentos tinned steak pies were a godsend to me as a teenager going off caving and railway volunteering, bung it in the oven, peel and boil some spuds can't go wrong! This period of my life led to the universal recipe, if it's meat fry it, if not boil it. Kept me going for years until I got married.
You can still get them Duncan - but Mr/Mrs Trendy can't open them.
You might have to scroll down a bit - not much chance of them becoming model engineers?

Camp is great having a label with a man with some Camp, which has a label with a man with some Camp, which has a label with a man with some Camp, which has a label with a man with some Camp, which has a label with a man with some Camp.......
Great for demonstrating infinity?
Proves my theory - the likelyhood of a post being read is inversely proportional to the length?

|Thread: Talktalk new web site|
Running a website, including email host and forwarding, I seem to get loads more grief with TalkTalk clients than those with any other provider.
|Thread: Every Tea Room needs a toaster topic...|
Roy, I think it did if you added the dripping.
I'm surprised nobody has come up with the real solution - a round coke stove in the corner of the workshop with chimney out the top. You can make REAL toast with that - finished to your own requirements. Get one before someone starts adding microprocessors to them!
|Thread: did u see|
Prices there have not been great of late - in fact significantly lower than previous. People seem to be put off by the charges and the VAT - 30% or so in total. Many models sold there have no boiler certification and unless you want to display in your dining room as a conversation piece, it is not attractive.
Nice model though

|Thread: London Model Engineering Exhibition - Alexandra Palace|
Oh dear, it does look a bit thin from the photos. I would normally say to negative comments "It's just a day out," but it wasn't even that for you, but not all lost.
Soon be Manchester though, or is it Oldham? Hoping to see something different.
Sometimes people take an exhibition as an indication of the state of the hobby - it isn't - it's the state of exhibitions
|Thread: Forum Video Size|
Yes, very much agree. Have to add it improves videos if you use some sort of support for the camera. Nobody watches wobbly videos.
|Thread: Gatwick Drone 'Attack'|
And they are not very good at shooting down model planes either. Why bother to make them move - they could probably not hit the target if it was attached to a pole! Your models are safe methinks.
You've said it several times now Neil - they aren't listening?
Does beg the question, if the army are there, what chance of finding a source in a real theatre of war if they are unable to get this bunch.
No matter (I'm not a rivet counter) but it's "Miniature Injectors Inside and Out" - agree, a good read

|Thread: Modern efficiency !!!!!!!!!|
My Passat - no startie.
New unit fitted - too late for me, but a recall comes through the post for this very item.
Wonder how much energy and resources it takes to make another, bigger starter compared to what I saved at the lights! Not forgetting, of course, the hassle in being towing home, being without it for 2 days etc.
|Thread: Boiler certification in a launch|
Small boilers are covered in the 2018 Boiler Regulations
They are really easy to test.
Why not just test them?
|Thread: Win 10 updates (again)|
Couldn't agree more Mike.
When will the techies realise most of us just want something which works as a tool? Many don't care which operating system or any other crap so-called experts want to boost their ego and show how clever they are - something which works every time will do fine - that's what we paid for.
