    Happy Birthday

    Thanks Bob, Thoroughly enjoyed the few days down south with Sylvia and yourself, what with the eating, then discovering the joys of Gin making, then eating, steam boating on the Thames and then more eating See you again soon D & M
  3. Our thanks to Jackie & Richard for a superb weekend. Great routes with nice driving roads. I was surprised at how well the convoy of cars held together all day. Thoroughly enjoyed the event and the company. I will try and get some photos up as Photobucket is now defunct.

  15. As usual had a brilliant time with Bob & Mo and friends his weekend. Got to the pub just in time to order food, great meal, just a pity the hot puddings had all gone Saturday weather could not have been better, by the end of the day I was pinked up as I refused to put sun cream on. evening barbeque was scrummy whatever you decided to eat. Sunday breakfast on the lawn and a couple of hot teas set us up for the day. Great company and thanks for the lodgings again this year. D & M

    Hi Gaz, I will be there, plus two. Martin
  20. I was planning to make my 5 mtr x 7 mtr garage a bit eco with regards to the heating & lighting. I have already made a solar air heating panel, which was a start, but version 2 would have been an improvement. Third stage was to have a 12v fan moving air across a solar powered warm water radiator. to power this I acquired a 500Kg, 24v fork lift battery pack, complete with single phase (16 amp) charging station. Now due to a change in circumstances, (I won't be local to the garage), I need to find a new home for this piece of kit. I can weigh it in but it would be a shame to lose the opportunity to help a fellow lateral thinker. suggestions appreciated. Martin
  21. I have the Rivnut tool and as above, the smaller mandrels are a bit delicate. The new design uses cap head pins so the replacement parts are pennies. I would recommend them, but have no experience with other makes. Martin
  22. Finally got to this stage, so this will really let me get onto the home straight.
