Some car engine cylinder heads used to be retained by studs and nuts rather that the much more common through bolts. It was best to remove all the studs after the head was off to better clean up the block surface before rebuilding.

Yes I'm always up by about 4.30am.

I'm also a radio amateur (ham) and early is the best time to speak with friends around the world. Late evening in the US, teatime in Australia, lunchtime in the middle east .... etc. :)

I'm intrigued that radio hams still exist, in this era when absolutely any silly person can send a text, email or phone call pretty much anywhere in the world, at any time.

Well they can as long as the infrastructure (conceived, built, installed and run by others) is in place.

Why do amateur woodworkers bother making things when it's easier, much quicker and probably cheaper just to buy? Why learn to paint when you can just buy a camera? Why labour for hours in the garden or allotment growing your own fruit and veg when the supermarkets are full of it?

Amateur radio, like many hobbies, is more about the journey than the destination.

It has the 'Admiralty' arrow on it. Might be associated with Torpedo maintainence, as it looks familiar Jimi,. However, it's a long time ago. I am not sure if the arrow appeared on tools for the RAF and Army too. Probably did.
In the 'Andrew' there was a' penchant' for specialised tools, probably because of the preponederancy of unique designs!!!

Like me! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've understood that arrow to be general MOD John - I have it on two of my most used tools; my savage 4tpi crosscut and my 3 -1/2lb Hardy Pick forging hammer.

Indeed you are correct Richard.

In fact, have a shirt and trousers that are covered in such arrows. I 'rescued' them from one of my 'postings', sometime during my service! :lol: :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Merry Crimble and enjoy your mince pies!
