Hi Guys, part 3 of the workshop rebuild series, actually in the workshop itself. Still quite intensive, but not as difficult or time consuming as the Church lane end. Enjoy, like, subscribe, and be amazed that I actually completed it without having a complete meltdown!!

Hi Chaps, having mainly recovered from my Lurgi, I am back at work on "light duties" so in the last couple of days, I have been building the new straight flue to try and cure the forge smoking problem. I have built a coupler/ hinge to join the new flue to the old one, and to install and maintain the flue extractor, and so that I can lower the flue in windy weather, as we do get a lot of wind in winter and early spring. There is also a slideshow of rebuilding and upgrading my BEN patents air compressor. Like, comment, subscribe if you want, but above all, Enjoy!!

Well here is an odd offering! have only been to the shop one day this week, as the weather has been very bad, and I am still a bit under it! Here is a job I did a few years ago on a Citroen 2cv, rebuilding the back end with new inner wings and boot floor. Beware of these cars! If you ever drive one, you will want one! They are so much fun, and dead easy to mend, but the downside is, they ROT! Not at all the car I would ever thought I would enjoy driving, just goes to show that performance isn't everything. Like comment subscribe, enjoy!

Hi boys and girls, still not feeling quite right, but almost there! I did nothing this week, due to the storms and the wind howling round, so I have put together a slideshow of one of our late great engineering works, Doxford and Sons, of Sunderland, Marine engine builders. There is a link at the end to a silent colour amatuer film of the works in action. They built their last engine in 1980. Like, comment, subscribe, and as always, enjoy it!

Hi Chaps, weather is still atrocious, bitter wind and horizontal sleet today, and I have stayed in the warm! here are some more of my projects, ongoing and finished, but we start out with the glory days of Dean Smith and Grace in Keighley, West Yorkshire, A factory I actually went to in the seventies when I got my first lathe, a DS&G 13Z. If you go to www.lathes.co.uk/dsg there is a factory tour there which is every bit as interesting as the Doxford one Hope you like it, and don't forget to comment and subscribe.

Hi Chaps, the week was going so well, once it had started (Tuesday), weather has improved and I feel fit again, and it was all downhill fom there! When everything around you is going bad, you have to take the opportunity to "break on through to the other side" so it's head down, and puuuuuush!Like, laugh, subscribe, comment enjoy!

Hi All

the welder part is on back order, and this week we decided, seeing as the weather was good, to deal with some trees damaged in the recent winds, sort of commando gardening!. We have a 4 Acre field just across the village from the Workshop, and this week, and next week, if dry, will be a maintenance blitz, as it is next to the road, and fallen trees tend to interfere with traffic! please like, comment and subscribe!

And Now, due to Keiths wife having a seroius heart condition (although you wouldn't think it when you see her work) and my wife having Asthma, we are self isolating from each other, so the fencing and completion of the field work will be at a later date! Normal workshop style stuff will continue as long as we are well, I can isolate myself there!

Many thanks to "The Repair Specialist" whose youtube vids put right my mistake! Enjoy, subscribe, and above all, stay healthy!

Hi all,
Not done much due to the virus lockdown, I bet all the survivalists in the USA are rolling around their bunker floors, surrounded by food, laughing their heads off! I did get a day and a half in the workshop, made a cold frame for my daughters roof garden, she was pleased with the solid practical construction, but thought the aesthetics left a lot to be desired! Teenagers! There's no pleasing them! Like, comment, subscribe, enjoy! We live in "interesting" times.

Week 3 of lockdown, I have not been to the workshop at all, may go next week, see how it goes. This is a little look round our back garden showing my rustic brickwork and a garden tour narrated by my eldest daughter,Izzy, including a brief glimpse of Catherine, my wife, and Emily, my youngest, brief because they refused to be filmed!. Warning, contains gratuitous pressure washer action! Phil East Yorkshire

Just realised I havent put week 5 up here, don't know how that happened! here ya go!

Week 5 draws to a close, and I have not been to the workshop, so here is a tale of the problems I am having finding the fault on the TIG, problems caused in part by the inadequate "schematic", a poor excuse for a wiring diagram https://youtu.be/0IayggeVbQI
