|Thread: Dumb question from a none driver|
H e paid online using the bar code from the V5c part 10 (the part about new keeper) ,when i checked yesterday it says taxed until 1 August 2020.
Thanks for the further comments.
Bill - i checked tax , mot and insurance status just now and they all check out for the vehicle. my son i think said he used the bar code on part 10 from the V5c form which the seller should or shouldn`t have gave us to arrange the tax.
p.s the seller had the whole V5C from the previous owner before him

Just an update i yesterday received a receipt in my name as owner so with the facebook conversation and screen shots off the phone showing the seller in the conversation i feel i have enough proof of purchase.
The V5c change of keeper has been done online.
Initial insurance my son took out on the van was wrong due to mix up between comparison site and insurance company not having me as owner of vehicle down on policy and not being covered for commuting to and from work.When contacted they said my son would have to either become the owner or cancel policy .So cancel policy it was.
Cancelled insurance today (within 14 day cool off period) £72 refund given on initial deposit.
Took out new policy today which has me as owner stated on the policy and my son as the keeper, and covers for commuting to and from work.
So everything seem alright i think.
thanks everyone for all the advice
Ok I think i have enough of an idea of what needs to be done and i`ll update once sorted out.
Thanks to all who replied.
Seller say he will provide a receipt in my name and ive asked him to simply sign part 8 of the V5C as ive already filled in part 6 in my sons name. Then i can return it to the DVLA and they should send him (my son) a new one .Is that right????
We`ll keep part 10 only.

I bought the car through facebook locally , i have all the conversation and it says sold ,is that any kind of proof??
To confuse me further i just found a seperate part 10 of a V5C in the wallet we were given saying to be kept by the new registered keeper but it has not been filled in and is from a different V5C document???
Michael ,i meant OWN not have. As in an asset that you can sell that you own.

My son is due a telephone interview on the 4th Sep with the relevant CAB department. So could be discussed then.
Hi Nicholas, your post sounds a bit like what i was reading on the DVLA site , my son was given the red/blue two page V5C documents when he paid te cash and picked the van up . It has the details of the car and the sellers details printed in it on section 5 as the registered keeper ,thats all .
Thanks for all the replies,OK i`ll go into a little more detail.
My son has got himself into quite a lot of debt, he works full time but has to commute around 20 miles each way to work.
His debt is being dealt with officially through the CAB and the conditions are that he cant have a car with an value over £1000 . The car cost me £700, its actually a Corsavan , but it was quite a good deal and the value is likely to over £1000 for used value.
His previous car wouldnt have passed the MOT so he was in a bit of a mess. Cant get to work/lose job.
I decided to buy the vehicle for him but as the owner. He is the keeper , hes already sorted insurance and tax out whilst i was present so no worries about that ,and his insurance turned out almost half of what he was previous paying for the car.
All i really need is something to prove that i bought the vehicle and not my son. Just in case someone from CAB wants proof that my son doesnt own it.
I get on well with my son so not worried about anything like disputes with him.
I have read some of the links given above and read somewhere that the seller should maybe have did some sort of transfer of ownership thing and destroyed the rest of the V5C and then the DVLA would send out a new one to either me or my son? Thoroughly confused.
So should i just ask the seller to sign a receipt or something. The V5C document has the sellers details on it.

Well thats whats confusing me. How do i prove im the owner if needed?
My son has insured it and taxed it today..
And i assume he has to send off the relevant part of the V5C to the DVLA?

Alan, why have you repeated my post?
I just bought a used car for my son. Paid for locally with cash.Being a none driver all my life i know virtually nothing about cars. What i want to know is that the car needs to have me as the registered owner (for reasons i dont want to get into) but my son will be the registered keeper of the vehicle,responsible for driving it insurance etc..
Ive looked online but it keeps going on about registered keepers mainly.
We were given the logbook V5C, etc..
What do i do to register as the owner???

|Thread: Another anodising query sorry|
i would stick with the pool chem if it is dry acid (sodium bisulphate) . You never know what else is in things like drain cleaners etc... containing sulphuric acid.
Im not sure i suppose your talking of so called dry acid pH reducer . Ive used it before for other things. It may work but cant be sure ,we always used sulphuric acid.
Regardless of what hes doing hes still using a final rinse of de-ionised water which is as far as i was taught is wrong. It has to be below pH of 2. I worked for a while at an aluminium extrusion plant which eventually was took over by Alco and we used to do alsorts of anodising for the MOD etc.. like missile and aircraft parts.
But this was 30 years ago so maybe things have changed.
We used to seal the coloured layer with lithium salts or sodium tetrofluoroborate solution if i remember right.

I suspect your final rinse before colouring is the problem, usually the pH of the rinse should be below 2 which means acidic.
If the rinse is too clean (and pH wrong)as with what you would have with `deionised water`, gelatanous aluminium oxide can form in the pores which doesn`t accept dye very well and the result will be patchy.
To remedy you would add a little acid such as sulphuric to lower the pH of the deionised water youve been using.

|Thread: Tyres for bandsaw|
I have two bandsaws ,a walker turner 10" and a jet 18" ,i have replaced both tyres with this in the appropriate width . (3mm thick)
Cheap and has been on both saws for 3 years.
I measure calculate the circumference of the wheels and if i remember cut strips either 2/3 the circumference or 75% (cant remember) the ends are just butt jointed using a cyanoacrylate glue . The tyres are stretched over the wheels and then using a round 1/2- 3/4 put under the tyre rod i spread dunlop alpha thixofix glue under the tyres working around the whole wheel circumference then pull the rod out and let dry.
p.s the ones on the walker turner have been on aroun 6-7 years got time wrong. No sign of much deterioration or failure of superglue joint.
