    MetalCraft Spring Sale

    MetalCraft are having their spring sale. A couple of years ago, I got the XL Workshop. A brilliant bit of kit. I use it all the time. Does costs a lot, but a good investment if you are into metalwork. They sell all the component parts, so you can just chose the parts you need. The complete...

    It had to happen!

    I knew that sooner or later I would break one of my LED strips, so was really interested to have a look inside. Pretty basic design, about 100 LED's in series. I couldn't find the end with the driver . Dropped in the garage somewhere. I managed to remove the strip from the tube. A few...

    Trailer wheels/tyres

    I know there are a few trailer users on here, so a bit of advice needed. Last year, I got a second hand trailer. It was a good price. It was a 2004 trailer, but supposed to be 'like new'. I had to travel about 60 miles to view it, but prepared to walk away if it wasn't a good one. On viewing, I...

    private charge notice

    I got one of these recently, but wasn't driving the car. I am the keeper. I genuinely don't know who was driving. I know the circumstances, it was a genuine misunderstanding of where a permit was valid for, but the appeal on that basis was rejected. After doing a lot of research, reading lots...

    Strange dreams

I have been having really vivid dreams, some really weird ones and some scary ones, but last night was really crazy! I was having a bit of a scary dream. I was at a place where...

    The Impossible question.

    So......... who do you think, any artist, any time, who wrote the best lyrics? I love listening to music, but for me it's almost impossible to give one answer, because there are different lyrics for different moods and the best lyrics may not be in a song which is one of my favourites, There are...

    First hint of Spring

    It's been a pretty long miserable winter here in Scotland. It's been raining for months, dreich miserable weather. I hate the damp cold weather here. It goes straight through you. I cycle a lot, so weather is important, and I really am aware of it. The last week we have had a foot of snow, -7C...

    Astronomy Binoculars or small Telescope

    Calling on all you woodworking astronomers!! My daughter (in her 30's) is quite interested in the night sky. She lives out in the country away from direct light pollution, so pretty good for sky gazing. We were planning to get her a birthday present to help her look at stars. Budget about £200...

    I don't think they would believe it nowadays?

    I was just thinking of some of the things from when I was younger that people would have difficulty believing today, but it's not really all that long ago. First one was when some people from the military came to school and told us what to do in the event of a nuclear bomb being dropped. The...

    Cracks in planer blades

    I have an old Bursgreen planer. I got three sets of blades with it, but not very sharp. They are probably fairly old. I was sharpening one set when I noticed tiny cracks on the cutting face. Has anyone else seen this before? One of the blades is a Wadkin HSS, so OK quality. The first picture...

    Advanced Socket Tester

    I use one of these for quick checks on sockets. It's my sanity tester. It shows you in the manual what it doesn't do. It's a great wee tester.

    Interesting Christmas gift

    My wife got an interesting present, A candle lighter, I have never seen this type before, so was fascinated by the thing. Unboxed it, switched it on and got this beautiful little plasma across the electrodes, I could smell the ozone, which reminded me of the old air cleaner I used to have years...

    Disk Storage

    I have a large number of files on my system, gathered over the few years. Some are archive quality scanned images, many are 100+MB image size, Gigabit panoramics and TB of digitised video. I also keep all my RAW files. I use Acronis True Image to create backups. I now have 40+Tb of disk storage...

    Winter Solstice

    As I write this, we are passing through the winter solstice, 10:02 21st Dec and heading back to spring. My favourite moment of the year!! I'm not surprised stone age people built elaborate processors to find the solstice, then had a great p**s up!! and threw a few sacrifices on to the bonfire...

    Connected fire and smoke alarms. Scotland

    For the few in Scotland. It will probably be delayed until Feb 2022 (was due Feb 2021), but it will be a legal requirement to have connected fire and smoke alarms in Scottish homes. I think it's a really good idea to have them, I put them in a few years ago, so my house already meets the...

    An 'interesting' advert

    I was shopping for a new battery charger and came across this advert. It's genuine from Banggood, not a spoof. As Victor would say "I don't believe it!!!"
