|Thread: GWR green|
In trying to colourise a photo that pre-dates 1927 several factors need to be borne in mind.
In that era colours where invariably mixed by "eye" from pigments of far inferior purity than available today leading to subtle variations even when brand new.
In very simple terms "don't stress it".

|Thread: Anyone recognise these.|
They look quite dangerous to me. Send them here immediately for safe disposal.
|Thread: Looking for foundry in Bolton area|
For some years I've used Roger and Noel several times satisfactorily for simple stuff. They have little control of the iron spec and are not really geared up to deal with cored work. I go to Wolverhampton or Dudley for anything a little involved..

|Thread: Calling all Apple Experts....|
Check out Louis Rossmann on Youtube for the trails and tribulations of fixing Apple products.
|Thread: Rotary phase converter|
Have I missed a trick? I'm sure there is a reason but just can't help wonder why anyone would want to run a rotary converter in this day and age.

Even 3D printed might work OK.

*1 for Meguiars Mirror Glaze 8 mould release. Great stuff!

Since Speedy is very closely based on the BR built (but GWR designed) 15XX pannier tanks you shouldn't have any trouble in sourcing the correct colour.
|Thread: Proxon KS230 table saw motor 'kaputt'.|

|Thread: Left handed lathe?|
Actually Dave the plus illustrated is to BS1363. A plug with sleeved live and neutral pins is BS1363A
|Thread: Painting on old galvanize|
T Wash is the stuff to use. Used extensively as body preparation by many heritage railways.
|Thread: Cleaning emergency !|
I can recommend a good divorce lawyer.
|Thread: Adrian Rawson's Divider|
Nice project but isn't a Raspberry Pi somewhat overkill? An Arduino Nano would eat the dividing task
Dons tin hate etc.

|Thread: Benchmaster Senior Donkey Saw|
Could you be confusing it with the Kennedy Hexacut? Or did they also do another design?
|Thread: DTI accessory threads - Mercer - Verdict etc.|
|Thread: c-clips & e-clips|
I think you'll find they are essentially the same thing, You might find C-clips only in the very small sizes. The larger sizes would need the additional stabilisation of the third tab thus making them E-clips.
