|Thread: Pocketmags issues out before ME?|
Sorry for the delay in replying (lots went wrong) and my how to memory would not function.
I found this editorial page right here on the ME website.hope it’s the right one.
If you have a MyTimeMedia account on here it can be connected to Pocketmags (second subscription not needed).
You can look at purchased digital issues but I do not think the back issue facility is available on Pocketmags (not 100% sure on that).
It is about 8 years since I linked my subs into the Pocketmags APP so now desperately trying to remember how it works!
I think it involved the ME subs number and my email address.
I am taking the Wife for an appointment now so will try and work it all out later unless some kind person comes along with the method before them!
I was also a little surprised to see ME 4676 & MEW 309 on Pocketmags before here.
I am a digital only subscriber for both on MyTimeMedia to get access to the back issues with the account linked to Pocketmags as well.

|Thread: Workshop lighting / energy costs|
Something that did rather surprise me is TV sets. We have a three year old one without an on-off switch and one about 7 years old with an on-off switch and green energy compliance label (same make).
Never bothered to measure the house consumption being frugal we switch stuff off as we go.

Certainly difficult to make a decent hot cup of tes up on a high mountain top!

Clever dog letting you know the cable was not buried deep enough!
|Thread: A Couple of Questions about Pipe?|
Ha Ha yes.😊
|Thread: Saving the Planet … or is it ?|
Thanks for that info Bazyle have to watch that one as I have petrol for various garden machinery as well.
Perhaps I will investigate the preservative additives.
Apparently the French inter-connecter has caught fire and likely to be out action for some time possibly with only half power at some stage
Of course predictions suggest consumer bills will rise.
Winter is nigh I must check my generator out and get some fuel!

So many massive warehouses seem to be getting erected they could become solar generators if the roofs were covered in panels.

Even that may not be possible in a years time.

On the subject of carpal tunnel problems: my wife had both hands/wrists done about 7 years ago and was really amazed at the great results

|Thread: Hello everyone|
Sorry to hear of your loss always a difficult time.
A possibly similar model Warco sold on eBay in May for £690 it looked nice in the photos.
No guarantee what another one would fetch but I have included a link here so you can check it out model wise etc.

|Thread: small toothed belts|
simplybearings.co.uk are worth checking out for those.
|Thread: Dividing this would have been an interesting exercise !!|
Not my field at all but the function section in Michaels original link describes it as follows:-
This form of diffraction grating would be put on the end of telescope and produce a spectrograph of whatever was observed with the telescope.

I notice that bare copper wire is specified and that the device goes over the end of a telescope.
I have observed that bare copper oxidises gradually would said oxidation affect the long term operation as a Spectrograph?

|Thread: Steel Prices|
Apparently commodity prices are soaring worldwide and shortages are the order of the day.
Lets hope it all stabilises.
