That's nice. When i was a lot , lot younger , and had hair , and a mum , i built a kit car...a Burlington SS , that looked a bit like a Morgan ..and Morgan drivers used to wave at me ,and i didn't ever wave back, as mine was a fake!! blush Me mum loved going in it , me wife hated it ..I put a 2.5 Triumph engine in it and drove it like an idiot and frightened her ...I gave it away to a school mate .. I'll find a picture... smiley

Great for collapsing mole tunnels too !

Wasn't there was a " water pump" that worked by igniting a gas in a u bend , or a chamber , with a clack valve on the outlet end to stop the "pumped "water returning under gravity ....or something like that ??

Might have read an article it in ME or Stationary Engine ..

My daughters hair straighteners make the dog go potty when they're switched on...electrical noise must hurt his ears ? Anything that will stop it ? Do those clip on cable watsits on phone chargers and laptops stop the " noise "?

I might add we can't here anything ,so it must be high pitched !

Bit off topic hijack ...Nigel , tell me more about this Whiskers catalogue..! I thought it was just a bike shop in North London ?

I bought this bike down our local tip for 15 quid, and thought it looked a bit up more market than a Halfords offering.. A decal on the seat tube says Whiskers , other decals say Raleigh Special Products . whiskers.jpg

Watching the Perseids shower last night , along with the streaks , at times there were just bright small flashes , no tails , like how can I say , coming down vertically and burning up ? Were these meteors too?
