Hello Andy from another Lancashire lad
|Thread: Velocette MAC|
I loved my Velocettes however! This is a photo of me at 18 on my first Velo. I painted the frame metallic powder blue. The tank was sprayed pillar box red with white signwriting. The seat was upholstered in a padded white materiel with red piping. The bike was finished with a Cibié headlight clip on's and rear sets. I'm now taking cover before the purists attack.

|Thread: Soldering aluminium|
Brilliant I'll remember that.
|Thread: Exercise for old folks|
Quite agree. My wife and I dance a lot and I have found it takes more effort these days to maintain flexibility especially in Tango where there is a lot of twisting or, in dance terminology, contra-body movement

As a very new clock maker, I would recommend 'Wheel and Pinion Cutting in Horology' by J. Malcolm Wild. He explains very clearly how to make the cutters. I have found it hugely helpful.
|Thread: Strange Word...|
I realise that I'm off topic here but the above post reminded me of a book which I have. In my previous life, I performed as a magician and collected some old magic books. One of which is 'The Boy's Book of Conjuring' It describes how to make a bowl of fire appear. Are you ready?
Solder a flat plate over half a metal bowl to form a pocket. Half fill this with petrol and slip it into the waistband of your trousers. When you are ready to produce the fire, take out the bowl and drop a small pellet of sodium into it.

|Thread: Broken Drive Belt|
Thanks NDIY, all I can think, is that I must have inadvertantly nudged the reverse switch which is next to the stop button. I did check and it's still on 'Forward' but I suppose I could have given it a nudge. (Shrugs shoulders) I'll put it down to the gremlins.
Here's a bit of an odd problem, for me anyway! I had just finished a facing cut on my lathe and pressed the stop button. There was a loud bang and this is what I found. Now, there was no load on the motor at the time and it snapped just when I pressed the stop button. Any ideas gratefully received before I replace it.

Very nice job, I'm more of a clock man but I certainly appreciate your craftsmanship.
