Anybody joining the dots here..................?

Too much demand on gas.........electricity...........sewage treatment............water next anyone.

Too much demand.

You and me ADY1 , the only ones to 'tell it like it is' .

If I had a stream running through my house , I'd go hydro-electric , problem solved.

A good start would be the 650 people so keen to impose them on 'us'.

And give 'us' the before and after installation/ running costs this time next year.

With you ADY1 , never let you down do they ?

Traveling 'economy' class, eating in a McDonald's , not for them.

Thread: Seal selection
18/10/2021 11:43:07

Everything brilliantly accessible , if only modern cars were like that !

While driving , that 'drive shaft ' definitely needs protecting from rain,road dust, splashes ,etc.

I am sure you can devise an easily detachable cover to do that .

That sealed bearing will not keep water out for very long.

15/10/2021 13:20:35

Is there any way you could fit a 'thrower' to the shaft , so that water doesn't get to the lip seal ?

Thread: Workshop lighting / energy costs

' Guess it's normal , 'us' ' lone survivors ' forget what 'normal consumption ' was.

News is Freightliner can't afford the bill anymore, so are going forward to use diesel motive power instead.

Fuel of the future.

Thread: Super 7 questions

Don't know if the ML10 had it but look for the device that locks the headstock spindle to stop it turning when

fitting/removing the chuck.

Be honest, did even the most PC of you not just break into a smile ?

Thread: Hermes. A Company in Total Confusion!
05/10/2021 20:23:13

I bought a garden spade from ESSTOCK, Hermes delivered the label !

Someone in their system had ' disappeared ' the spade the label had been attached to.

To their credit ESSTOCK sent another spade , which arrived safely.

If you can leave me your email address in my pm of this forum , then I can send you some essential Hermes contacts.

Essentially , until you know the 'way-in' Hermes is a world of pain.

They have an unresolved security problem in their distribution centres , stuff disappears..

No mention of the fridge/freezer by anyone .

Thread: Saving the Planet or is it ?

Well done wind , finally Nat Grid being made to make it happen.

Currently providing 42% of demand but I bet they are having worries of stability if it suddenly drops.

Thread: Crankshaft Factory

I wonder what the production line to make AK's from railway lines looks like.

Given time, and a bit of luck, things may get that bad.
