Hounslow (creeping up apparently) is not too many miles from me.
Will still get a ticket though.

|Thread: The worst 'upcycling' tragedy ever?|
I am amazed at the amount some of this up cycled stuff sells for.
I am a qualified tightwad though.

|Thread: Today on Talking Pictures TV|
No aerial at present I did a Freesat search and not on there.
Edited By V8Eng on 24/05/2021 09:07:22
Where can I find that channel is it on Freesat?

I remember the mass conversion to North Sea gas.
If a similar process is suggested for Hydrogen I shall certainly be going off grid and moving as far from other premises as Practical.

|Thread: Aldi clamp device|
Spotted this Workbench/Clamp in an Aldi email.
Might be of interest to some on here?
|Thread: The future is Tiny|
There certainly appear to be some who would push us back into that.
Ah yes overpopulation: the truth that is not to be spoken about!
I originally posted that item about horse dung simply as an addition to your comment item on horse pollution.

This makes interesting reading on that subject.
Not sure my ancient body is up to it though😢

|Thread: Repair It? Wossat Mean, Like?|
Having been in maintenance for a good proportion of my working life I was often asked to “have a quick look at something”.
I have seen numerous diy repairs by owners often scary ones and some were outright dangerous are they really suggesting it is a good idea for all and sundry to carry out repairs?

|Thread: Soft Robot in the Mariana Trench !|
Thanks for that fascinating link.
Let’s hope it does not meet the same deep sea fate as this machine!
|Thread: My new computer|
Just for the sake of clarity here.
Fusion 360 is not a Windows only application because it also runs on the Mac OS.
Apparently it is available as a web app for the education community as well.

|Thread: How Do I Open Walker-Midgeley Documents Please?|
I used to use a free Adobe Acrobat reader to open PDF on PCs is that not available?
Now I use an iPad for emails it seems to just open PDF files anyway.
What do WM say about the files they sent you?
|Thread: Which type/brand of razor blades stay sharp longest? (cutting card/greyboard)|
Sorry I have not been able to be on the forum for a while.
Your understanding of a rotary cutter is much the same as my own.
the main advantage I see is that you get a longer effective blade as in Pi x D so longer life, there must be something in that as many office type paper trimmers use rotary blades.
Similarly to Trevor Drabble I see liknesses to professional framers picture mounts, have you investigated suppliers of that equipment?
My rotary cutter works fine using a green mat under the object being cut with a straight edge for guiding (no precise stuff).
I guess a cutting wheel could be mounted up and sharpened but my usage is more limited so I would probably buy a replacement wheel when eventually needed.
Hope you get on well with the new Stanley type blades.

I have used the RS one very successfully on patterned wallpaper and fairly thick cardboard.
The CPC one has a smaller wheel.
Other suppliers such as stationary outlets probably stock them as well.

I prefer a rotary cutter, less chance of self inflicted injury and the blades seem to last well.
Of course that all depends on whether or not it can work in your particular application (I am not familiar with greyboard).
