  1. I've got some silver birch drying too, I'll let you know early next year how good it is πŸ™‚
  2. If you can arrange me some good weather for my Lincoln trip over the next 2 weeks, then I'll put a good word in for the first 2 weeks in October for you πŸ™‚
  3. An abusive message was posted a couple of minutes ago, I was in the process of reporting it when it disappeared. Most of you will have no idea what I'm referring to because a moderator obviously deleted it less than a minute after it was posted. Well done πŸ™‚
  4. Taught photography to groups of 30, 13 year old kids back in 1986, they were always fascinated by using tins to make a pinhole camera and developing the photographic paper. One of my fondest memories is of a lad who was trying to take a pic of himself with a 3 minute exposure. Unfortunately he had used a round tin and it was windy. I watched as he tried to keep himself in front of the 'camera' as it rolled along the playground.
  5. A quick search brings this up https://www.screwfix.com/p/makita-dbo180z-125mm-18v-li-ion-lxt-cordless-random-orbital-sander-bare/5839j No idea of the quality though, but might give you a start.
  6. Has to be my camera, friends think I've got a 'static mobile phone' because it lives on the couch. I never carry it around with me, it's a phone and it stays in the house, or is carried with me to the boat, where it also stays inside.
  7. If you send me your bank details and all your passwords, I'll see if I can stop you feeling left out - I'm kind like that πŸ™‚
  8. I went to see them last year, an excellent bunch of musicians and singers. Unfortunately for me, the set they played included many songs that I'm really not keen on, however, it was worth it to see and hear them play Hotel California. They also have a very good video system, most songs have the original group projected onto the back screen playing the song, I'd love to see how they manage to keep everything in sync. Get a ticket, you'll be a very happy nomad by the end of the show.
  9. Check that the plastic pipe has an insert in https://www.toolstation.com/jg-speedfit-pipe-insert/p14022?store=H5&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=CjwKCAjw_-D3BRBIEiwAjVMy7FxZ8nbCvxw0T_Shelamc-bxKfHAhSQHsyMsOBVN0TJQOYf5O5G0PBoCTT4QAvD_BwE If it hasn't, there is no way you will seal it. Also, you can try wrapping ptfe tape around the thread https://www.toolstation.com/ptfe-tape/p67236
  10. Morning Neil I fitted these on my new build, very happy with them so far https://advancedbatterysupplies.co.uk/product/4-x-advanced-sl-110-leisure-battery/ Kevin
  11. Morning Neil Nice to hear your update and to see you're venturing up to God's own country ( Yorkshire ) As a single handed boater myself, you'll soon get used to using the rivers and canals by yourself. You are unfortunately heading towards several problems though. At the moment there is a problem with Selby lock having silted up, so you might not get out to York. Also with the figure of three locks on the Calder and Hebble being long term 'broken', You can't get over the Pennines viat the Rochdale or the Huddersfield. That leaves the Leeds/Liverpool, but that is also having problems with a lack of water!! Anyway, keep enjoying the lovely Chesterfield canal and have fun turning on to the Stainford and Keadby canal at Keadby lock - follow the instructions from the lockies. Glad you're enjoying πŸ™‚ Kevin
  12. I always take the advice given by the fisherman in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6o949IwjBsk
