First job today was to move this thread to the correct section of the forum and lock the old one, you just can't get the staffwink

Last years thread is still here should you wish to refer back to it

I know threads tend to drift off topic but If we can try to keep it withing the main forum section of "Work in progress and completed items photos" though photos of progress are welcome and often as interesting as the finished item.

It's not just limited to model engineering or making tooling, if you have knocked up something for your motorbike or RC heli for example thats more than welcome, infact anything you have done in the workshop. That can also be extended to the study, kitchen table, etc as it would also be good to see any projects that are being drawn up or the latest item to be produced on that 3D printer that Santa has just dropped off.

Happy New year, J

Last gasp of 2014 was to swap ina DiMarzio stacked humbucker for the bridge pickup on my Squier Tele, and work out a decent wiring scheme for a 5-way strat pickup switch. Not much engineering but some freehand wood routing and plastic cutting (with the Dremel) and some gluing and soldering.

Today learned that when you find a slip of paper with connections on it inside a motor's junction box, don't believe everything it says! It DID work fine when connected as described, but the advice for reversing was wrong. No harm done, just some buzzing and a bit of head scratching.

Just opened a bottle of a nice Rioja to let it breathe before Dinner.

It's important to let quality reds breathe - if it doesn't start soon though, I'll just have to give it mouth to mouth.

Happy New Year

Just saw Brian's request regarding photos...

Welcome Brian - you need to use the albums link at the top of the page to create an album and put some photos in it. You can then use the camera icon in the reply box to select the photo.

Did I hear right? - The radio just gave me a Met Office yellow rain warning for Staffordshire. I'm staying in tonight!

Neil,

Could you please give a blow by blow regarding attaching photographs, I put up a post the other night regarding A4 Bittern and tried to upload a picture and basically gave up because it wouldn't work.

Neil,

 

Could you give a blow by blow on how to attach a photograph to a posting as I tried to attach a picture to a post about A4 Bittern and no matter how I tried I ended up giving up and the posting went on with no picture except for a graphic in the bottom corner.
