Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

Me. Well no - If there's no refund I'll take it. I must be losing my touch - there was a time when I would have argued all day ! :smile: Ha ha. Reminds me of when my friend's Chinese wife wouldn't accept a bottle of juice in the supermarket because she only wanted 1 bottle and it was a BOGOF (buy o...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Are you sure you haven't overlooked something simple like <print to file> or whatever the pdf box says when you just intend saving the picture? Or got the settings wrong when it asks what is the default for a .pdf file?

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Thanks Kev, I hadn't come across that one.... I'm getting back up to speed and taking a bit more interest.... What strikes me at the moment is the complete lack of urgency or news of what is happening. This usually means that the Tories are formulating another Cunning Plan. Best bet is a leadership...

Considering you've been through major surgery, Maz, it's wonderful that you are able to get about. Give it time to heal. Best wishes.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I think Gloria got nearest with "storing things like old sixpences" - Do you remember a similar item: the small plastic Watney's Red Barrels that were given away and I think were intended to be used on dog collars for the owners information?

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Is it part of a musical instrument? Like a whistle slide valve in those variable note whistles? (The Ludwig slide whistle.) But knowing you it would have to be a steam whistle from a traction engine. Just guessing!

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Sorry, no pressure or mechanicals involved. It's far more simple than that. Look at the black ring round it, that's a clue...... The black ring could be an O ring, and it looks to have a hole in the thin end suggesting that it pivoted or moved, so is it something to do with a grease gun mechanism?

The "sugar loaf" hill in the middle. About 3 miles from us. We went up from the right hand side. That's my exercise for this year!

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

On Saturday my friend and I set out on our mountain bikes to explore a big hill that we can see from my apartment. It is only just over 1000' high but it rises vertically from the valley floor, an exceptionally steep karst formation. It has two houses and several transmitter (?) masts on top. I've b...

Later, I see that the back bench bill banning No Deal passed into law last night. Ms Leadsom is not amused....(I consider her a most egregious woman)
If Macron says "Non" then won't it automatically be no-deal? The new bill forbids TM from going for a no deal but doesn't actually prevent it.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I can picture that with 2 threaded bolts coming through, or the ends of a long u-bolt, so I'm suggesting it was a u-bolt end for supporting joists.

Re: Shed Matters 3

Is it because you've taken some metal out when you drilled the touch hole? The touch hole seems quite a way back from the trunnions.
