    I've just been told I'm a "very rude man"!

    Because you get numpties ringing on the 999 system asking where they can get a taxi etc.. Whatever your priority system they are still blocking the line for emergency calls. It can take valuable time to assess a call's priority.

    Another one for Jonzjob

    Not entirely sure of the date but in 1943/1944 (I think '44) my father smuggled me into RAF Mildenhall (we walked through a hole in the perimeter which was used as a short cut by personnel to save a long detour through the main gate :shock:) and I was given a tour of a Stirling. The aircraft...

    I want to make a coffee table out of railway sleepers

    Are they new sleepers or recovered? I ask because if they are recovered they may well have been treated and, personally, I would not use them for such a purpose. Some of the treatments are carcinogenic.

    Is this the biggest scam of all time?

    I don't think it was his invention. Water or steam injection was being tried pre-war. It was also used in WWII in some fighter engines. If you Google "Water injection in combustion engines" you will get a number of interesting hits. I believe it is an extension of the observable phenomenon...

    routing dog holes

    I'll probably get shot down for this, but I looked at this problem myself several times (a woodworking hobbyist) in the end I used a hand-held drill with a 20mm wood drill. I made it as upright as I possibly could by eye and a square and then drilled the holes. I felt, and so far have been...

    Multico M1 Morticer

    If it is any help, I have just measured my M1 and it will plunge a total 21cm (21.5cm but that is hitting the base plate :shock: ). It goes through oak, with decent chisels, with no problem. I haven't gone the full 21cm but am sure it will do the depths you are talking about without any...
