Re: A Kennedy power hacksaw

Always fancied one as my arms are getting (even) weaker..... I've ended up using an angle grinder for anything more than 3/8" or so. Pathetic.

Re: Is this why you make rubbish decisions?

One problem is that once someone has decided that they have a particular "learning style" it's very difficult to get them to accept any other. My wife is a classic case of learning by doing and totally refuses to read up on anything she may be wanting to learn. I'm the total opposite enjoy...

Re: The VICE thread

I've had my Record one like that pic (4" jaws) for about 35 years and it's still going strong. In fact just used it to hold a F-B footrest while I bent it straight using an old fork stanchion. The vice is perhaps the most useful thing in the workshop. It's like having a 3rd hand.I occasionally ...

Re: Tool purchases

I used to get things like this (not so fine though!) when I first moved out. I did tend to buy the Woolworths multi end screwdriver and the Woolworths tool kits!! Totally acceptable for the things I wanted to do and pretty sure the multi head thing I still use is Woolworths :lol: :lol: :lol: For sp...

Re: The Steering Thread

I've always thought of counterweighting as a technique for slow speed turns - see some of the motorman videos Horse refers to. As for the bars being something to hang the controls on - I think it may have been Geoff Duke who originally said that. Other than the famouse pic of the slide at Imola he c...

Re: Another question about tools!

I'd do what Yambo said - and in fact if anyone managed to see my hammer rack I've done exactly that there.

Yep I've never bothered with a certificate as I don't host anything sensitive (unless pics of hammers turn you on).

Not adblock or ghostery. But image appears in edge so a brower issue - I must look at firefox settings. Any clues?

Re: Photos not appearing

So.... I'm using firefox 84.02 on Windows 10 Pro with adblock & ghostery enabled. I might try switching them off first then give edge a try as I'm not keen on chrome. As it happens I was having problems with firefox on another forum (not like this) so had stuck with an earlier version till recen...

Re: Photos not appearing

I can't imagine that's my problem as it's my own web space and when I link to images on it from elsewhere they come up OK.

Could it be something to do with my (and others') browsers?
