  2. There wasn't much available space on either of our last two boats, so I used 2.5mm brass strips on one side and 1mm PTFE strip on the other, secured with industrial double-sided adhesive tape.
  3. You clearly missed the lectures on "How To Be a Contractor". You would have learnt that if you spot a potential mistake, you must press on and do as much work on it as possible, before anyone else spots the error. You then get paid not only for all the work on the original drawing, but also for re-drawing it! Chris G PS I think that you are displaying your youth when referring to A0 drawings - surely the should have been Double Imperial?!

    Try Nick at TW Marine - very knowledgeable and helpful.
  5. Heisenberg and Schrodinger were driving to work one day, when they were stopped by a traffic policeman. Policeman: "Do you now what speed you were doing?" Heisenberg: " No, but I knew exactly where I was." Policeman: "Well, you were doing exactly 81 mph." Heisenberg: "Thanks for that, but now I have no idea where I am." The policeman is now annoyed by the scientists' attitude, so he examines their car carefully, hoping to find a fault. Finally he opens the boot... Policeman: "Hey, did you know you've got a dead cat in here?" Schrodinger: " No, I wasn't certain, but I am now." Unfortunately there are many, many more of these!
  6. I have a Stanley 55, which I occasionally use for simple operations - but it is a nightmare to set up for its more complex operations. It is worth reading Patrick Leach's description of the 55 (and of other strange Stanley planes): http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan8.htm Chris G

  8. If anyone is is contact with the current owner of my former boat Batavia (a grey tug with many rivets), which I sold 18 months ago via Braunston Marina, please could you ask him to contact either me or the company which is storing some boat stuff for him? The boat stayed in Braunston for a while but I heard a while ago that it was now somewhere "further North". Please PM me if any further information or clarification is required. Many thanks Chris G
  9. The problem seems to be that what was a small crack in the offside abutment of the Lower Kings Road bridge has become a large crack. The road and canal are both closed. Chris G
  10. I have been waiting years for 2 Axis generalised machine theory to appear on CWDF! The full Kron tensor approach , please. Chris G
