    Used Electric Cars

    Hi, well many thanks for everyones thoughts on this, we tend to buy older cars, but I thought it would be interesting to see if it would be possible to get an EV. We haven't found out if we need to change cars just yet, out MoT will be within a few weeks and its depending on what they find...

    Used Electric Cars

    Were stareing into the abyss of a looming MoT,,,and I think our smoky old diesel is after 205,000 ozone gobbling miles going to fail miserably,,,so in a fit of concern for the planet I thought I would check out older electric cars on eBay,,loads of advts, in the main Renault or the well...

    Free vitamin D

    My wife has had us on vit D for the past couple of months, I mentioned somthing about the cost and she quoted an article that had investigated the actual amounts of various vitamines in over the counter suppliments,,and the results were shocking, ie Vit D tablets with almost no Vit D in them...

    Securing your workshop

    Well Ive been ferriting about on the internet and was looking into Car Alarms because I dont want a PiR based system, the intruder is in before the alarm is set off, I like the idea of a vibration sensor perhaps coupled with a straightforward door switch and a siren, and the alarms that I was...

    Securing your workshop

    Hi and many thanks for doing this Jon, I looked up the link, very surprised how cheap the basic alarm was,,,only one review though and thats a 1star stinker!,,plus the systems are all centred around PiR sensors,,Ive been looking at Car Alarms,,trying to get my head around what they consist of,,I...

    Securing your workshop

    Hmmm,,starting to sound complicated,,,normally open/ closed,, then leads me to think a little more, no good having an alarm that switches on then off again when the door is closed,,the clever bit is a signal sensing gizmo that once triggered keeps the alarm going,,Im going to look at the cheap...

    Straightening a ledge door

    Hi Richard, that looks great and as you said its already had an effect I would give it more time to wait and see how it develops, I suppose there is still the same amount of twisting presure and its sustained so with luck it will continue to force the door over, I suspect you will want to see it...

    Securing your workshop

    Many thanks for the various ideas, we dont have an alarm in the house and I dont have thousands of pounds worth of gear in the shed but I dont want the bug gers breaking my doors or nicking anything,,Im a little concerned that a smart alarm box would only encourage theives to think there was...

    Securing your workshop

    Hi Jonm, the shock sensors, Ive seen them advertised for windows and I assumed that the considerable shock that perhaps travels through a window being broken would ne needed to set them of,,,they look like bits of foil I think?? Is it possible to get one that would detect somone pulling at the...

    Choc block connectors

    Perhaps thats it, my Wago connecters come from the bottom of my grandson's toolbag, he gives me a mixed jar of odd and ends and thats where my little collection of Wagos came from.

    Choc block connectors

    Wago type connecters are great but it took me a while to realise that what looks like a double choc block connecter is in fact a single terminal with two connections,,maybe there are different types and brands but all the ones Ive picked up are like this,

    Straightening a ledge door

    As its all fairly new how about putting somthing between the top and frame to hold it open and then forceing (not much force required I expect) the bottom closed with a bolt so induceing some twist,,it might be wishful thinking but could be worth a try,,

    Securing your workshop

    Many thanks Fergie, yes thats the sort of thing, because its outside I would have to considder things catching it, but if set up at say waist height at least it wouldnt be set off by the dog or stray cats,,

    Securing your workshop

    On a low tech note, is anyone using one of the the cheap ebay alarms? there are pages of them but really only about 3 or 4 types, I bought the Defender one because it had a vibration sensor that would set it off if the door was shaken, and it all looked good in the photo but was a disapointing...

    Advertising Standards Authority.

    Be wary of the smart meter installion offer, check out somthing along the lines of “problems with haveing a smart meter installed” and see what pops up, lots of people find they have a smart meter but their gas or electric has been deemed unsafe and disconnected by the meter installer,,,the...

    Securing your workshop

    I would like a simple alarm for my shed but they are not so easy to find a decent one, the little keypad one from Amazon was a hopless piece of junk which went back. When I had a bike I heard of lots of people useing a baby alarm in the garage, they are wireless and the noise or any soft...

    Resaw blade advice

    I know that this is the wimpy option but looking at those great big boards I think I would be chatting up the local joinery shop or timber yard and asking them to run it all through their band saw,,Did somone say you have a planer? and you could get it through that quickly before fixing it in...

    Katsu router issues - base keeps jamming/scratching router

    Hi,,my Katsu has a definate machined pattern on the alloy body, its only slight and looks like turning marks, but maybe they are there to help the base get a grip on the body when clamped up? Anyway, as I said earlier, I do have to cradle the body and base in my hand when I want to adjust it...
