|Thread: mini grinders|
I have 3 Dremels, the oldest was bought in 1981 and still going strong.
|Thread: UK DRIVING LICENCE [ 2022 issue ]|
I will be 82 in September and due to renew mine for the 5th time, however i won't bother as i would not feel safe driving these days.
|Thread: M 1.4 threaded steel rod|
I think this place may stock it. www.component-shop.co.uk It's quite a while since i bought from them, but they had some at one of the shows i went to.
|Thread: Spotting drill or centre drill|
|Thread: I am getting shorter - how about you.|
I know the feeling, i have lost 3 inches due to 4 collapsed vertebrae and osteoperosis.
Starting to look a bit like Quasimodo with my bent spine.
|Thread: Over 70 Driving Licence Renewal|
I had to renew by post at age 70, but since then i have done it on line with no problems.
I am due to renew again at age 82 next year, (if i last that long ,) but i will hand in my licence then as i feel that i would be a danger to myself and others.
|Thread: 80th birthday|
Happy Birthday Bill. I really hope you don't get the same present i had on my 80th.
A 10pm trip to hospital where they kept me there for 48 hours with no sleep.
My 81st in September was much better with a present of a new book in which i have a whole chapter to myself.
|Thread: First Clock in Metric|
No drawings as i made it up as i went along, but you might find it interesting.
|Thread: Post Office Deliveries|
No problems in the Crewe Cheshire area. I believe that they have just had a massive new sorting warehouse built near Northampton and are doing a lot of re-organisation.
|Thread: A bit more upcycling.|
Put them all together and you have a lamp that can have either white discs or colour changing discs. The base and top are white at all times, only the discs change colour. I would post a Video of the finished item but don't know how.
Take some scrap 'Perspex'. My mate owns the local scrapyard, and they get some great stuff in there at times.
Start with a length of chrome plated brass tube removed from a very expensive free standing bath tap. As the thread title suggests, a scrap one, and set it up on the mill using my little home made indexing unit. I have a Vertex dividing head, but that was too big to use for this job. More to follow.
I have the sad task of announcing the death of a former member of the forum, namely John 'Bogstandard' Moore, who passed away early Monday morning.
I am sure many members will remember John as a top class engineer who could offer good advice, but who could also speak out in plane language against those who he thought were offering bad advice, a trait which did not make him too many friends.
He was however, one of the most generous men i have ever met, and was more than willing to help out anyone with any problems they may have had.
R.I.P. John, a top class man and a good friend.
