|Thread: Miniature Hand Rivet Squeezer suppliers|
Even if it was shipped Tax free .... The UK customs would intercept it and charge you 20% VAT + a handling fee + maybe Import duty. It would be treated as if you ordered from the US or anyother non EU country. So you could end up paying more!
|Thread: What web browser|
That depends who your ISP is and what package you are on .... I have a fixed IP Address when connecting from home, so logging out and in again will make no difference as I will always have the same address.

Just to balance things out ... I use Internet Explorer 11 with Windows 7 ..... Can't stand Chrome!!!!
|Thread: Electric Drill-drivers with dead batteries|
I have looked at one of my 200W PC Power supplies .... from the label -
5v @ 18Amps, 12v @ 6A, 3.3v @ 10A
Is 6Amps at 12v (72 Watts) enough to start and run a drill??

I also have a Pocketmags problem .... The latest issues of Model Engineer (4551) & Model Engineer Workshop (Jan-17) are not available to download as part of my subscriptions .... I have tried through the offline reader, IPAD app and via the website to download/read them but the only option given is to buy them!
|Thread: Beginners book|
Currently there are a couple on Ebay (Buy it Now) for £2.79 inc UK Postage
|Thread: Savage Aggressive big files|
Just to let you know that my file arrived save and sound this morning.
Many thanks for making these available ... I would certainly like another if you get any more.
I would like a couple ... just sent you a Private Message
|Thread: Downloading Digital Issue|
If you have downloaded the files, using the offline reader I do not need to be connected to the internet to read the magazines. (I use Windows 7 and a iPad)
Also I do not need to sign into Microsoft either. (This may be needed if you are using the app (Win 10) and not the program.)
|Thread: Do you go to the scrap metal merchant|
I buy new from known and trusted sources ... you never know what you are getting from the scrappy.
I would never ... ever ... buy material for a boiler from a scrappy, no matter how much cheaper it is!

I had to re-activate my subscriptions to see the latest issues....this is the second time I have had to do this in the past two week.
Uninstalling the app on my PC is not an acceptable option, as I would have to re-download over 200 magazine issues.
Can try to remove and reinstall on my iPad when I get home next weekend.
I can access ME4542, but I had to re-activate my subscription at PocketMags.
I cannot see MEW 246 on PocketMags (I have reactivated my subs)
Both my ME and MEW subs are showing as in-active in Pocketmags.
How do I reactivate them and ensure I do not miss any issues, I do not have a Order Number as one is not sent out when you renew.
I am also a paper+digital ME subscriber. I renewed in August, the direct debit was taken from my account.
I am now also being told by PocketMags that I must pay for the latest edition of ME (4542)
Can someone please sort it out for me
|Thread: PocketMags Account|
I have had multiple subscriptions of the same mag, and have had no problems accessing the current and the old issues.
You should be able to sign in, then register a new subscription and enter the code in the email. That worked for me.
