Thread: Exercise for old folks

Posted by pgk pgk on 20/11/2020 20:20:47:

Sadly had to part with my ancient hound last month and worry now about getting a new one that might outlast me. On the lookout or a suitable secondhand dog. I don't have the same access to spare pets now I've retired....

pgk

Many rescue/adoption organisations have great difficulty finding new 'owners' for senior dogs. Could fit your circumstances and be a two-way benefit. smiley

A query please Neil, nice pics by the way.

Have googled without success to identify a fuzzy star cluster which appeared low on eastern horizon some months ago and has gradually elevated until now it is just passed the overhead heading westwards.
Thanks.

And to follow on with manuals, as mentioned above, the WM18 mill and the Grizzly G0704 are twins and the Warco GH1230/1236 and the Chester Crusader are twins of the PrecisionMatthews PM1236.

Easy - the vacuum leaked out devil

That’s funny - I’ve never ever come across a ‘leaking vacuum’. Where did it leak to?🙂

No pressure to find an answer then..............

So DC9s have rear jet engines and apply reverse thrust with pivoted scoops that hinge into the jet stream. I've seen them at O'Hare back off the stand using reverse thrust. How does that work?

Edited By John Haine on 31/10/2020 08:15:0

Such manoeuvering procedures mostly banned these days for both rear and wing mounted engines, experience found that engines were being damaged by FOD thrown up by reverser efflux was being ingested into the engine air intakes - cheaper to call for a tug.
DaveD

Why wouldn't that happen on runway braking? Is it kept cleaner of random debris?

Don't know for sure but think that the aircraft is still travelling forward at a sufficient speed to 'overtake' any FOD thrown up by the reverse thrust, which usually reduces as the aircraft reduces speed.
Is it kept cleaner of random debris ? usually-yes- and subject to regular inspections whereas the parking bays can be grubby/dusty places where people work, not to mention loose baggage containers which could be blown around with reverse thrust

on the auction site (why do we call it that instead of the name?)

Many moons ago, some fora were a bit squiffy about EBAY and AMAZON and forbade their mention.
People then came up with inventive ways to avoid the direct mention and some folks have continued long past the necessity to do so.

Thread: Help - 6BA Socket head cap screws
29/10/2020 20:09:41

Good that you are now sorted Speedy.
When I checked Norm's link for ba-bolts there is an 'airmail shipping' link at top of page, 2x6BA-1/2" steel bolts @0.55 ea = 1.10, airmail shipping 2.00, handling 2.50 = £5.60 total
Kind of expensive for 2bolts but if it gets you out of a hole, well OK then.
Like you, living in France ME supplies get expensive.

not knowing how far a league is and so on.

I went for a walk to think about this one.

An hour later I was back home, so I guess it's about two feet...

Wearing 7-league boots would be considered to be cheating.

Thank you MichaelG, I was aware of Austin.TX through following the exploits of a car restorers/reformers outfit at Johnson City, Austin.TX. My comment was a wordplay and probably unkind dig at Austin/UK's export drive.

Sorry for taking your words literally, Dave

No apology needed, Michael smiley
