|Thread: Deburing holes|
When I was an apprentice at Westlands in the 70's (I did'nt finish the course so I'm not an engineer ) standard practice for deburring holes was a couple of quick twists with a larger drill bit hand held. On the lathe we used a triangular scraper made from a file. The scraper end was used for internal edges and the file part was for the outside.

This is an alternative way;
|Thread: Aircraft General Discussion|
During the testing of the Mosquito prototype DH experimented with "saxophone" exhaust pipes that gave the aeroplane an extra 8 mph but they added a lot of extra complication so they were not used in production aircraft.
I remember an article in Pilot magazine about a pilot who owned a company making performance exhaust systems for cars and motorcycles. He realised he could improve the performance of light aircraft engines with a carefully designed exhaust system (quieter too).But if you fit a different exhaust to a Lycoming, its no longer a Lycoming, it becomes an experimental engine in the USA.
I heard an Atlas approaching while I was out in the workshop today,noisiest bloody thing in the sky I reckon,even the Merlins flying over the farm are'nt that loud. Any way I popped outside to watch it and was suprised to see the moisture in the air above the wings was condensing over the trailing edge.Thats on an aircraft cruising along at a guess about 5000 ft.

I suspect that they will bring in road charges based on ANPR cameras to collect tax revenue in future.
I can't see why they don't incorporate RFID into the charging socket to automatically charge for the charge iyswim.
