|Thread: Milling for Beginners Book|
If anyone wants to buy either book my email says they are on an introductory offer at ARC.
|Thread: Electric Smart Meters|
I think you will find that most pressure to install smart meters comes from Central Government.
I have read that there is a Government requirement for UK homes to be fitted with them within a certain time frame (not sure of years etc).
I also think companies may be liable to fines if they do not meet the required timescales.
Just as an aside to this: If you have an Electric Vehicle Charging Point installed at your house it must now be a “smart” one.

|Thread: Grumpy old men|
The one I dislike is people who say “can I get a coffee” the answer should be: yes come behind the counter and help yourself!

|Thread: Engineering Sights on Google Streetview|
This is at the Black Country Living Museum (great place) entrance.
Cannot remember what machinery it is because we’ve not visited for a while.
Edit: I find the link sometimes goes to plan view and needs a second try to get into street level.

Sometimes I find faded signage on old buildings interesting and wonder about their history (usually engineering related stuff).
This one in Stoke on Trent for instance, I have driven past it many times and now found it on Streeview.
Did Coates actually make Diesel engines?

|Thread: Kerr's Minature railway closing|
Sad to hear of any closing.
There’s an active one in Hastings 10 1/4” (I think) it runs along the front near the old fishing huts, very busy when I was there last year.

|Thread: Copper Plaque Identification|
The wife’s uncle worked in printing so this trade related item may be a long shot but worth a look.
|Thread: Anyone recognise these.|
Maybe a ball nosed milling cutter.
edit: Jason types faster than me!

|Thread: iPadOS 14|
Sorry to hear that you are having issues.
I updated mine yesterday evening, it went smoothly just as I have come to expect after using iPads for a few years now.
The cursor works as before and if this post appears then obviously that aspect works on mine.

|Thread: New Covid Rules|
The latest BBC explanation is here but I am not really sure how much it helps with the original question.
Apparently we are now to get local COVID Marshall’s on the streets, the reporter said they have no powers and will be employed by local government (but they do not have to do it).
These Marshall’s will be paid for by
You really couldn’t make it up even as a fairy tale!
Oh I forgot it’s Politicians making rules, so unconnected to the real world anyway.

|Thread: Unusual Project|
Some reckoned it was impossible for Bumble Bees to fly but they fly anyway.
I have been wearing varifocals for over twenty years and would not have any other type now, I very rapidly adjusted to them from bi-focals.
Varifocals seem fine for me in the workshop but I do find myself looking head down on stairs instead of ahead.
Edited for auto spelling to bi-vocals ha ha.
