  1. The best plug top ever made, with many great features - one of the best being that all the cores are cut to the same length!

  3. Having used large numbers of them in my working life, my first choice would be Kraus & Naimer - they are still pretty well made.
  4. Thinking about the topography, I reckon that the paddles were probably raised on more than one lock - but not on all of them.
  5. Apparently the incident caused flooding as far down as Billet Lane in Northchurch, so a fair volume of water must have been lost.
  6. The south side is the non-towpath side of Dudswell and the land there is a bit lower than the canal. I suspect that the water went over the bank just above the lock, but my informant's message was lacking in detail!
  7. According to my man on the ground, there was flooding in Dudswell last night, with water getting into the gardens of houses on the south side of the village.

  9. I will ask a friend who lives in Dudswell if his house is underwater!
  10. There is one word missing from the list for the one I was "taught"!
  11. The latest batch of resistors I ordered, as well as being tiny for 0.4 Watt ones, seems to have the stripes painted in Farrow & Ball colours - very muted and more or less indistinguishable from each other. Has anyone managed to purge from their memory any of the very non-PC mnemonics for the colour code which were in common use 50 years ago - or do they immediately spring to mind?
  12. Two photos from the Berkhamsted Local History & Museum Society Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BLHMS/ The first one is above the Riser and the second probably heading towards Lock 56. ETA Taken in 1954.

  14. Out of curiosity, AMD 2900, Intel 3000, one of the TI ones or something even weirder?
