|Thread: THE MIDLAND - THE ONLY SHOW IN TOWN !|
In the last two years my car has only travelled a quarter of the mileage I would usually expect to cover in one year due to Covid restrictions and family disasters.
Assuming the ongoing family issues get sorted out before then I shall regard the 180 mile round trip as worthwhile for a very good show.

|Thread: Can this small motor be reversed?|
Some motors have a wiring diagram fixed inside the connection box cover.
|Thread: Anyone an expert in kitchen knives|
I tend to go with the weld idea as the marks sort of form a semi circle onto the blade section but oddly the other side of that blade is fairly smooth at the same point.
the handle is held on by a brass pin through it.
My wife has owned the knife for about 50 years (it was old then) and was from the local deal in anything type guy.

Here is our vey old one and the blade is about 220mm long (middle photo is the sharp side) no makers mark either.
Not been able to afford a joint big enough to use it on for years!

Likely a well used carbon steel carving knife originally supplied as a set of three implements ie. the knife, two pronged fork and a honing steel to keep it sharp.
A good quality carving knife is still a delight to use we have one and a honing steel (when the wife comes in I’ll ask her where it is)
Many very fine ones originated in Sheffield from the 1900s.

|Thread: Used Myford S7 makes £8k at auction!|
A country Manor House attic sale!
All I seem to find in the attic is junk that should have been dumped years ago.
Having said that I only Live in a small bungalow anyway.

|Thread: Simple Quiz... Missing Weight|
I would try the lazy way first and trawl the local charity shops or eBay but that’s just me!
|Thread: Access to digital issues|
Thank you John & Jason.
I confess to not being very impressed by the handling of this and being digital only plus not paying by DD seems not to have helped.

How tiresome all this has become, I have a digital only subscriptions to ME & MEW and enjoyed accessing back issues.
Whilst I appear to have access through my Pocketmags account that is only part of an answer
I have been reading both magazines for several decades (MEW from issue 1).
I do not appear to have a customer number.
I think you might have lost a customer at next renewal and I may be thumbing through issues at the newsagents then buying if required.

|Thread: My Faith in Human Kindness is Reinforced|
When the Covid problems began our (very) new neighbours offered to get shopping for us.
That was a kind offer but we felt just a bit embarrassed both being fully mobile back then.
Faith in human kindness, yes occasionally!

|Thread: Nostalgic moment|
My nostalgic moment was last month when I saw the 1996 Toyota MR2 that I owned from Dec 1996 until 2001.
It was going along a local road and looked immaculate that sighting nearly brought tears to my eyes.
probably the most fun car I ever owned (and the quickest)

I recall something called Gallium Arsenide in respect of that..
Nice when useful materials get discovered .

I would tend to assume that an underwater attack might originate from the eastern side of the U.K. if started in right area it would probably wipe out a large chunk of the European mainland as well.
I read decades ago a nuclear blast might well wreck communication systems so the survivalists might just be wasting time with radios..

As a former colleague used to remark when the danger of nuclear war was mentioned “The best thing to do would be get as close as possible to an actual explosion”.
Thinking of possible long term consequences that might be more sensible than going into a bunker.
