Thread: Supplier for Large Timber Workshop - Recommendations Please
13/07/2018 09:25:31

Hi Nick

Your friend could try these suppliers of timber buildings. **LINK** they supplied me with a log cabin 5M by 5M.


It comes as a flat pack


It all slots together




A full set of plans and construction details come with the building

You can purchase a full roof insulation and floor insulation kit. I purchased the thicker floor boards i think they were about 30mm thick.

I have been very satisfied with my purchase so far. not the cheapest way of doing a building but definatley very satisfying. I have gone through one winter so far and i was quite warm in there.

I do not work for the above firm , just a very satisfied customer


Thread: What did you do Today 2018
02/04/2018 23:49:14

It’s not my original idea . But the copper rings are 38mm in diameter and should only allow access to small sead eating birds like blue tits sparrows and robins. As soon as I get birds eating in there I’ll post a photo.

Finally placed the new Squirrel proof bird feeder in the garden

All done

I have a need to do some gear cutting so I have started to create a gear hob. I found plunge cutting very daunting but here is my effort so far.

you will need to replace the supplied thermocouple with a type K thermocouple that are available on ebay which would reach the required heat range

Thread: Single to 3 phase vfd
15/11/2017 08:29:11

I have just recently fitted a 1.5hp 3 pahse motor to my Boxford AUD on a HuanYang vfd with no problems. The vfd has been in service for about a year as it was previously fitted to my Grayson Lathe and has performed very well. even setting it up was fairly easy once I had got my head around the chinglish manual.


P.S I even made my own pendant to operate the vfd remotely

Thread: Fusion 360 help needed
14/10/2017 19:44:55

If you register as a hobbyists it's free for a year then you re-register as a hobbyist again for another year and so on. From what I understand there are no plans for them to start charging hobbyists, non profit organisations or businesses with a turn over of less than £100,000.00


Swarf mostly typed quicker

Thread: Tow bar wiring loom
23/08/2017 14:27:08

I have been Caravaning for the last 14 years and have always had the tow bar and electrics done professionally. It isn't worth the risk doing it yourself especially since insurance companies find any excuse not to pay out

Thread: TEC Strange wires
17/01/2017 22:21:28

Thank you all for your replies.

It is connected to a Huanyang inverter 1.5kw, I'll have to check to see how I can take advantage of the thermistor. I've only just purchased both and I'm still trying to get my head around the chinglish manual


17/01/2017 21:11:51

Hi all I hope someone out there can help identify a couple of strange wires in a TEC electric motor.

strange wires.jpg

As you can see in the photo above i have 2 blue wires in a conection block that dont seem to have any use. They do not connect to the main winddings. I have had the motor running and every thing seems to be running ok. Are they any thing i need to be concerned with or can i just ignore them.

I'm looking forward to your replys
