Litterbox. Thats a bit extreme. Surely she would let you use the toilet.
|Thread: Lucky escape.|
Watch this video. A warning. Just goes to show what can happen when you get a propane leak on a boat or caravan. The devastation is horrific.
This beautiful boat had an automatic gas cutout between the bottle and the cooker so it is possible the flexible hose at the cooker end failed. You can never be too sure or careful about anything when it comes to gas.
A warning to us all.
BTW this couple started their adventures on a canal boat near Northampton then bought the sailboat to tour the world. They had just completed a passage from Mexico to Australia. They were lucky it did not happen at sea.
We have a bidet in both bathrooms and would not be without them.

|Thread: Kayes oil can|
Hi Duncan. I have a couple of Kaye's oil cans. I have tried for a while to determine what the markings on the bottom mean. The handle marking is probably someones own identifier.
My largest can is 545mm long and has stamped on the bottom 1 (?) 2 P 21A and in the rectangle No 2988 BR . as best as I can make it out. I think the 2P could be the type and 21 refers to 21" the length. The No 2988 is its number in manufactured items and the BR could possibly be British Rail. The item (?) is the shape of an I beam and could mean any thing. That is the best I can do for now.
If you find any other explanation please let me know.

You have a short amount of time to amend your post by clicking on the "edit post" in the green header bar. Not sure what the timing is but you have a few minutes after that its set in stone I believe.

|Thread: Annealing stainless steel|
I have found the best way to cut stainless plate is to use a 1mm thick cutting disc made for stainless steel in an angle grinder.. Cut as close to the line as you dare then use a sharp file to get to final shape.
|Thread: Purchasing an unknown build|
Looks like it time for another rant on my pet hate. Nothing personal but the phrase "that well known site" should be banned. What site. ????? Ebay, Amazon, ToysRus, Woolworths ? Is it so difficult to just write the site name so we know where to look.

|Thread: Noisy Lathe Gearbox|
You can get a very good additive for quietening gearboxes in vehicles from Halfords or other motor shops & Ebay. It is Manual Gearbox Additive made by SLICK 50 costs £15 a small bottle. Easy to use and works a treat. I have used it in a Land Cruiser manual box and also in a farm elevator gearbox with excellent results.

Should be very easy to determine the stroke length. Move stroke adjuster to end of slot. Then measure stroke. No might be's about it.

Excellent. I hate to see good items go to the tip.

Many people have used Landylift with good results as far as I can see. No affiliation or direct knowledge personally.
|Thread: Home made T&C jig|
Give it a try. Make a new fine leadscrew if you need it. If it does not work you have learned a lesson, not lost a lot of money and have some parts you can repurpose.
