  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  2. How is it off-topic to mention the only UK political party which is opposed to this nonsense? If you "couldn't be arsed" to compose a sensible reply, then why compose one at all? It just comes back to what I said last week, for some reason you seem to follow me around this forum like a little puppy dog, even when you have absolutely nothing to contribute to the thread.

  3. So not actually "a COSHH officer" then? Well, I'm not what you would call "politically active", I think I've only ever voted twice in my life. I supported the idea of eu membership in its original format, an organisation designed to facilitate trade between European countries. Of course, it has moved on massively from that now to become an unnecessary and hugely expensive and meddlesome layer of bureaucracy, but if that is what you personally want, then good luck and may the Lord's blessing go with you.

  4. Anyone planning (and maybe worrying about) installing a washing machine may find the following notes of use. This was the first time I switched the machine on. Boat electrics 70 amp 12v DC alternator. Engine running throughout wash programme 4 x 110 Ah batteries 2000 watt 12v to 240v AC pure sine wave inverter (Sunshine Solar) Washing Machine Candy Aquamatic 100f (compact) max 1000 spin, 1300 watt max Cold feed only, but water fed in via mixer valve at 30 degrees C.

  6. NMEA If you ever come to MK area, I would indeed be willing to pay for you to come and set up my Webasto heater Including correcting any instalation issues.

  8. Yawn...as it has been banned by most of the developed world it would seem inevitable you would have to go to somewhere like Turkey to get some. Trich is extremely nasty stuff and has been slowly removed from everything since the 70s, predating the EU's interest by some decades. Dich did replace it in many uses (I recall similar hysterics when I was the COSHH officer in the mid 80s auditing all the nasties in the lab though nobody was blaming the EU back then) but it is still pretty dodgy and best kept in safer conditions than your average DIY shed. If we didn't have EU directives t

  9. Nicely put, thank you Tony. Now my tongue can stop bleeding. I find it understandable for peeps to chose to write "Amps" instead of "Amp hours" when they don't know or understand the difference, but for Phil to chose to deliberately use the wrong term when he understands the difference seems at best perverse. At worst, it seems designed to mislead people who are new to the subject and trying to grasp the principles. Phil, please don't do it. As Tony says, it makes everything else you say appear unreliable too. MtB

  10. Have you ha the battery terminals off, cleaned then to bright metal, smothered in Vaseline and refitted them. At the same time checked for how well the actual cables are fitted into the terminals? It could also be a faulty domestic master switch. Either test by putting both cables on one stud for a short while or if its a plastic key job screw up a bit of tinfoil into a small all and put down the key hole. The solar may or may not contribute to the charge when the engine is running depending upon the two charging voltages but it is probably best to assume not. A short is not so likely

  12. As you say, the thrust comes from displacing a mass of water, larger volume at a higher rate make more thrust, a propeller is just a tool to make that happen and can only make it more or less efficient, and they do. so no prop wash no thrust. A more efficient prop have less prop wash in relation to forward speed, it is the mass thrown back that make the thrust, so to make it efficient it should take as a big area and accelerating it as little as possible, but there also is a optimal diameter for the power and speed and rpm, and a practical diameter limited by strength, space and hull drum

  14. No, not anymore, it was manned by a lock keeper called Ray but you just go through as normal. It's called "The Summit" and it's the point where the canal goes downhill from the summit lock. The water is fed from here both ways and the lock keeper used to monitor passages but they ceased this recently.
