..... and a beautiful engraving of a Gatling Gun mounted on a Camel.......


I'm sure a little humour wouldn't completely assuage the sense of 'let-down' but would that have been the Sopwith or Bactrian variety MichaelG ?

You can still check if a surface is flat or vertical with a wixey, just zero it when facing away from youu and then turn it 180deg so you can see the display and half whatever the difference is, if no difference then the surface is level to within what the particular model reads in.

Where's that light-bulb emoji when you need one. Thanks Jason

I found an old can of Duckhams 20/50 in the garage. All I did was heat it up until it went dark and dunk it in the oil.

Thanks Tim, duly noted.

Had a go at hot oil blacking.///

I'm quite pleased with the result.

Edited By Tim Chambers on 16/08/2019 17:09:15

That looks good Tim, will be going that route shortly - what oil / temp did you use ?

You have to add something about oil, etc to avoid being distracted, try this **LINK**

Hope this avoids distracting searches !

Thread: Warco milling machines

Point to bear in mind, not knowing your power situation, HV is 240V/1ph and WM50 is 440V/3ph

Thread: Home built trailer
06/08/2019 14:54:44

As in NZ per Ian S C note, trailers in France must have their own registration hence diff reg nbr to the towing vehicle.
No info on 'MOT' testing requirements for trailers. (cars=2yrly after 4th anniversary)

Why is everyone’s workshop so much tidier than mine ?

Dave W

Is it because you don't have any Spaniards to help out ??


Thread: Edison thread tap

I remember being impressed or should that be amazed with the 'slenderness' of the gear-change lever on the Dauphine and its sister the stylish Floride - thin as a pencil, taking economy of materials beyond BL levels.

Nice work Al, do you find those Spaniards a bit untidy ?

Neil, do you mean 'not so much a repository as a suppository' ?

Thread: Kit Cars
29/07/2019 17:38:27

Can't identify but reminds me somewhat of Daimler SP250 (Dart), which also had Tufnol HT-lead retainers on the cam-covers (no dust smell though )

^^^Thank you Michael, indeed, point proved. insert smiley here !
However, once again I find myself behind the curve having just read AndrewJohnston's post about his 'sabbatical'
Very good news.

Although not an enthusiast for emojis, I looked in vain for an emoji to express "sorry to hear you are leaving us, you will be much missed, hope to see you return shortly" to enter in the TTFN thread. sad

^^^ I also see (or do not) the same phantom posting, even after a refresh.

......entailing wielding an ordinary spanner as "tap wrench" while lying on the floor in very cramped and awkward positions....

Take care with that kind of exercise, Nigel, it has been known to cause knee problems..........
