  1. I was at Primary school. Missed the live broadcast but watched a re-run on TV at school mid-morning. Whilst I was very interested in the landing, the low resolution TV was disappointing. In contrast I remember the launches and landings which were televised in new tangle colour TV as being the "must-watch" TV of its day. Much like Game of Thrones which I will watch the final episode of tonight.......
  2. On same site there are drags with 38 mm shaft https://erichunter-tools.co.uk/standard-drag-fork.html
  3. I am pleased to see the extent of repairs on the staffs and worcs. also the long awaited Hurleston Lock 4, which I hope they complete this time around.
  4. You could test the switch if you take it out....This is a bit crude but may confirm the problem. Remove the microswitch from the pressure switch assembly Push the plunger in on the switch as slowly and gently as you can until it just operates. Then slowly release the pressure. You should have to back off the force by an appreciable amount before the switch resets. If there is no apparent difference between the On force and the Off force then the switch is duff. You may have to play around to get the feel of this.
  5. I suggest you may need to change the microswitch in the pressure switch as it appears to be worn out and lacking the correct hysteresis. Also lubricate the operating arm of the switch mechanism with silicone grease. It's an easy job. If its the same switch as on my Vacuflush I bought the replacement switch from RS. A search on here will find a post from me with the part number. I the mean time I attach some files which may assist. The switch is probably this, check visiually that yours looks the same (though some seem to be reddish brown rather than white) http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/door-interlock-push-button-switches/0575539/

  7. Winding hole above Debdale lock but I cannot confirm dimensions (our boat is 57')
  8. The Cross in Kinver is Ok if you want beer. That is 5 minutes from the canal. The rest of the village is approx 10 minutes. Have a good trip! Go a bit further down the canal and there is the pub at Wolverley Lock (The Lock Inn) or the Anchor in Caunsall (5 minutes walk form canal which does excellent filled cobs and salad.
  9. Its certainly a low bridge, took our roof mounted exhaust off!
  10. Down the Avon, preferably without rushing. It's delightful.
  11. "jubilee" style clamps are not a good option as they distort around the clamp screw area. Something like a MIKALOR clamp is superior to my mind.
  12. Yes those reviews are shocking and rather as I expected. I have not being the the place for about 2 years based on past experience, though I have to say it was good about 5 years ago. The local gossip is that the chain that own the pub demand such high rent that no sensible landlord would take it on, so that those that do are wannabees rather than competent in the trade. Its a great shame given the potential.
  13. And the servings are huge. We get two fish and one chips and we throw some of the chips away. I cannot confirm its closed, but it (The Vine) has been shutting before 9 PM due to lack of customers. As we tend to walk past around that time (to go to other places in the village) I am not sure if its open earlier or not. There is a sign on the pub saying the tenancy is for sale (or whatever the correct terminology is).
  14. Avoid the Vine in Kinver. Terrible food/service and a hygiene rating of 1. Plenty of other places in the village.
  15. CRT are mobilising to start on Monday and may need large crane. Not surprising given the size of the tree.
