|Thread: Does anyone know what this is for?|
Perhaps it’s an early machine for making crinkle crisps to go into the walkers box!😉

|Thread: How can you check that DVLA field of vision machine is OK.|
Have you asked your regular optician to do a field test (mine could) for confirmation?
I cannot remember which particular machine was used for my DVLA test so will see if I copied the paperwork.
The test seemed different to previous years but at the time I was feeling more concerned about a government department forcing me into a town centre store during lockdown.

|Thread: Duff memory stick|
Not one these by any chance?
|Thread: How Many Barristers Needed To Change An Ink Cartridge?|
Ordinary HP printers have a distinct advantage in that their cartridges have the nozzles built in so blocked nozzles only mean a cartridge change at worst.
|Thread: Duff memory stick|
I have used a recovery program from easeUS with success on cards.
Various options are available here:-
|Thread: Myford Headstock bearings|
I am not sure how far Noel has got with this but it might be worth checking out the related thread here:-
Sometimes Shafts and Bearings appear on eBay as well.

In times when things appearing on the web are taken as fact (by some) this sort of thing is very worrying.

The only thing I can really find to criticise is the rather strange ‘About Bassett-Lowke’ page on the website
In amongst the fiction they specifically use his real name linking it to controversial real world stuff.
Surely an ‘about’ page should only contain factual information?

|Thread: Danfoss Pressure Switch|
Just a Friday morning thought.
Might it be a flare nut fitting at 1/4” SAE? Male = .44” OD if my memory serves well.
It’s about 20 years since I dealt with those fittings so ignore if I’m talking rubbish.

You could try the contact details here for Colchester Model Engineers.
I am too far away to help personally.
|Thread: Can any of you guess what this is from?|
Useful machine if you have all the other parts of it as well!

|Thread: MS 'Edge' - Points and Pitfalls?|
Edited By V8Eng on 11/04/2021 16:27:48
I was not offended but found your reply a bit puzzling as I had said that Edge works (Quite well in fact).
I moved my own computing to Apple some years ago but it is surprising the things that seem tied to MS.
Post removed, decided it’s not worth replying to.

Came with the families W10 PC and it works.
No idea about anything else to do with it.
|Thread: Recommended suppliers and services|
Chronos, Arceurotrade, RDG and Myford have given really good service to me during lockdown.
I have to give a mention to RS and their brilliant ongoing high level of service (order by 20.30 and it turns up next day). They are not specialist ME suppliers but a look at their cat will show lots of stuff for our hobby.
I have no connection to any any of these companies just a satisfied customer.

|Thread: Steel Rule Graduations Re-Blacking|
If you are looking for Markal products there is a company called Walters & Walters in Hertfordshire who stock the make.
A quick search should locate their website.

|Thread: Flash Steam|
Windy it’s good to know that I still have the odd memory cell working in spite of lockdown.
Inspiration went to Beaulieu unfortunately that was after my last visit there.

You would have to do a bit of investigating on the following:-
pretty sure I saw a streamlined steam record attempt car in the Lakeland Motor Museum on holiday some years ago.
|Thread: Are we being listened to on the phone|
I just added that linked article as part of the general chat on the subject.
Being spied upon is obviously not new (who did not know that?).
I think it has been made easier with modern technology and the way people have embraced it plus many giving away personal information so readily.
