|Thread: Digital calipers made in same factory?|
I also got one with the fractions option, thinking it would be, just like Thomas, really useful.
|Thread: electric paint sprayers|
Dare I say it - use an airbrush on a "silent" compressor but buy a Badger.
|Thread: Chosing a drill grinding attachment or machine|
Just a little confusing this. Opinions range from don't touch Sealey or drill Doctor to I get on OK with them. Consensus seems to be they are OK, providing you take the time to set them properly.
If you get as far as you would like to buy one of them, the Sealey is £50, the Drill Doctor equivalent is £150.
|Thread: Boiler testers and material verification|
Can only find the following in Vol 1, 7.4, but maybe enough? Dunno! I'm not clever enough.
The Inspector shall satisfy himself:
a.That the materials used are of adequate thickness and the correct specification.
b.That, where required by the build procedure, the relevant material certificates are provided.
|Thread: Another scam|
Could give you more of a buzz than bee-keeping Clive

I think it would be you initially as you are the owner - or your club if you were running at a club public function.
If you had done as you say, and there were no other issues suggesting negligence, then you have operated in good faith. You may have to sue the club whose inspector you used (the inspector is not legally responsible), or a contract inspector, if you were being sued yourself.
That is why we have public liability insurance.
|Thread: Electric Cars|
However, perhaps someone can explain why electricity is considered so clean when, at any time, more is produced from nuclear than from any other source. Taking the whole life cycle, isn't this the dirtiest way by far?
Taking electricity produced by nuclear and putting it into batteries (again very dirty over the whole life cycle) - is that really an improvement?
Think you're right Duncan. Time for an introduction to Timothy Taylor?
However, I have consumed the widget stuff when abroad when the only alternative was San Miguel! Both taste like dead rats, but the widget stuff less so.
|Thread: Horizontal Bandsaw - Final Thoughts|
Richard makes a good point about the rest.
From what Richard says, it looks like the Axminster is better in this respect and would be OK.
I bought the Warco because it was cheaper and I couldn't see the difference - until I put it together.
I eventually sold it and bought a Femi, which is more expensive but much better built. The rest has to be fitted each time, but it is easier.
The throat distance is also important - particularly if you want to saw sheet.

|Thread: stamford show vandals|
Edited out - comments removed - an unsuccessful attempt to give a reason why this happened. Nobody listening.

|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?
