Patio - 31°;

Carport - 32.5°;

Workshop - 27.5°

Was inside for most of the day assembling the Singer 660 A1 sewing machine base and fitting parts to the base top.

In the carport later afternoon giving the sewing machine a clean, especially all those beautifully machined internal parts.

Looking at all those parts, did/does make me wonder at the thought process/s that went on to come up with such clever mechanisms - and with nary a computer in sight let alone CAD/CAM.

It's going to be a few degrees cooler for the next 15 days, so says my weather App.

Geoff - Caffeine time.

As with Billy Mills I have worked in Russia, (Sakhalin Island) & walked around in -32* in winter & 48* + in summer but as Billy says it's dry cold & heat so it doesn't get through to your bones like it does here in the UK, mind you you can still freeze very quickly. Have also worked in the middle east & the temp there regularly gets above 50*+(they don't tell you that though) in the summer, but again dry heat unless you are near the coast where the humidity often gets over 90% so not only hot but wet to enjoy it while you can!

Ok in workshop till 3.00 this afternoon. This with a 12" oscillating fan blowing on naked flesh. Thermometer reading 96 degrees F I made a hasty retreat to a much cooler house. I am starting earlier in the morn and jacking in early/mid afternoon. I did over do it 4 or 5 days ago and spent half an hour under a cold shower - she say's I'll never learn!!!! ------ Rik

Forcast is for slightly cooler weather for the next 15 days.

I for one don't remember when we last had such blue skies, and for so long.

Here in Deepest Devon today - 26 deg. outside, 24deg. in the workshop, a pleasant breeze all day, an aroma of roast beef from the kitchen and the prospect of a cool beer this evening. What could be nicer? !

Been cloudy all day here in NE Cheshire. Met Office says the max was about 19°C/67°F. Got a bit done in the garden, so quite thankful for the coolth. Still rather cloudy tomorrow, apparently, but hot with it. Deluge (weather warning posted) on Tuesday.Still, the car does need a wash.

Patio 33°;

Carport 34.5°;

Workshop 27°

In the carport today (mad or what?) working on the Austin Seven's spare wheel cover.

Last week I used Biostrip20 paint stripper (usual disclaimer) that worked really well, and today used one of those fancy cleaning discs in the L grinder to get down to bare metal, and it worked a treat also.

Finished with a coat of etch primer. Coach paint next.

Photos of the whole process in my Photobucket account, but I don't know how to do a link using iPad.

Tried everything but all I get is a long URLin blue letters etc.

Geoff - In recovery mode.
