We lived in it for a while, as it's got a very good kitchen. The pic is before we moved in. Once I sort some software I'll post some more pics

Press and hold "Alt" with your left hand and type "0176" with your right, now you have a degree in symbols.

When do I pick your bike up? Have you got your ticket for Copenhagen? You need to arrive in Copenhagen about lunchtime on 08AUG12?

I now at long last have a welding area :thumb Should be able to make a start on some gluing soon. Test run on some shelving brackets proved extraction is a must. Oh no :!: Back in the loft again :cry:

One's hiding Beat, 5. Powcon 400SM Mig. I also have a spool gun and pulser unit for it. Fronius Magic Wave AC DC HF Tig, home made water cooling unit as it's intended for site work. Good old fashioned oxy-acetylene with a flux in flame unit for really clean and strong bronze welding.

Surface grinder has now found a new location, so that should be wired in soon.

The gear cutter is now in the warm and dry, much better than a garden shed :lol:

One for Rickard, guess what gear we're making now :?: ;-)

That'll do as the next one was even less clear. Camera's don't seem to work through wet machine windows with coolant spraying.

Ok Rickard, just need to book the heat treatment as I finished cutting the teeth before I finished this evening. I expect they'll be ready for use late next week. That'll be all the B50 gears done then. Just the selector forks to make.

Thanks Ed. I've only shown the bits that are sort of tidy. It will be the end of the year before we're somewhere handy to being moved in.

I do like tidy, just not very good at it.

Many distant years ago I was working in a sheet metal company, having to work on my own during their annual shut down. (hadn't been there long enough to earn holiday)

To my shock one day the managing directors wife appeared armed with yellow dusters and furniture polish. (first thought, she's off her head)

The results were stunning. Made it so much nicer to work. Even smelt better for a couple of days. So I now vacuum and polish machines too :oops:

Funny you should mention the bosses wife coming in mine comes in everyday around 4pm and sweeps the floor, cleans all of the chips from the lathe and mill and generally just picks up after me and it is a great help. I have one stipulation however she is not to touch any parts no matter where they may be sitting at the moment because she moved some stuff when she started doing this and it took me a week to find them as she didn`t have a clue what I was missing she was just making things look nice

I guess it would be best to copy it for over seas use. Postage would be more than the cost of the item I expect. If there was enough interest I'd price it up, I expect I'd need to make 10 to make it cheap enough.

New machine running today, well old one really. But this time we have the mechanical feed and advance working. The mechanism is something else, wish I had that kind of imagination.

Yes Beat, I'd like a wet grinder. Sadley not an option with this one. I guess at some point it can find a new home once I purchase a replacement.

Ah ha, I thought someone would notice the cans. They are upturned with good sealed lids. Just being used as a temporary table. The fact they were besides an electric heater I would have thought was worse :oops:
