  1. Heart Interface Inverter

    How do we put files into the folder your on about, I downloaded it but was stuck then lol. I'm willing to help build this section if it's needed, If make and models are provided or a pic of the manual front etc. We can also make a one pager with the web link to the makers so it can be stored on your phone and just press the link to open their site. 10 to 1 you'll be in Horning wih no signal. All links are important to someone. https://www.yelp.co.uk/search?cflt=shoes&find_loc=Norwich%2C+Norfolk

    Hi Charlie files can be found on this site www cruising equipment dot com / support.php remove the spaces and add the dot It's good to have the original manuals if you have a folder setup. First thing I do when I buy something is download the manuals and put them on the server. One of the sites I work on I have all the building drawings etc on my phone no running back to folders. Lets face it a `Operating Manual` should be called `When all else fails book` you only read it when you can't get something going.

  4. Any Pictures Of White Stuff On The Broads?

  6. Workshop Projects

    That's an old one Grendel we had some of them in the Home Office workshop I worked in repairing radio's 25 years ago, I swapped mine to a new model with a flap on the lens, ok I used to sit my Casio tv on it to watch tv during the day. I had the other version of these which had 2 off 2 foot tubes in it, must have left in my old house when I moved.
  7. Independence - Updates | Maintenance & Care

    Think this thread needs splitting into two it's drifted away from what could be a long running topic for LR like Griffs was on BA he did on the otherside. My view only.
  8. House Of Horror

    Our 'Boat of Horror' this Sept on White Champagne us at the rear and sister at the front. Fishing gear on the rear roof and maggots inside a carrier bag to keep the dry. End of fishing I took stools in etc and put the kettle on and my sister put rods at rear. I get up about 330 to the toilet to open the door and the large shower tray was dotted, on with the light and oh *&^&* so glaases on and on my knees picking and throw into the toilet acrade style no winning tickets coming out. so Kaz gets up and said I'll do that. Outside I went with torce for the sake of ducks it was covered, So the next 20 minutes flicking them off with the mop. Boat next to us must have thought I had a cleaning OCD. Now I did this very quite till I got to the hand rail at the front and the mop clicked it oh dear. Back to bed. Round the table in the morning me still not rattled my sister said what was you doing last night I got up and saw you outside and thought this is not a good time to ask lol. So I had to put on a show and gave her both barrels lol.
  9. Free Heat..?

    http://www.ductstore.co.uk/acatalog/Lindab-Tectherm-Insulated-Flexible-Ducting.html fire resistant to 30 mins. You could put a inline fire damper. £60 The fire system you have would put it out it's what we use in comms rooms like been on top of everest it removes the oxygen BUT not the heat. Just put a check in place that the pressure is in the green that sets the system off, sticker above the closed sea cocks maybe. Heating - when the hot water is to temp does the water just carry on going round the circuit. Could it be as simple as installing a 3 port valve like a house system that uses a water tank that works 50/50 then when the tanks to temp it works 100% matrix side. Other option is a inline 2kw water heater which is what we have on our large gen sets to keep them warm for instant starts, They now put these in houses inplace of a boiler where there's no gas. Council put this system in my grans house.
  10. Free Heat..?

    Following on from Grendel and heat from the engine there is the heat exchage system, we transfer heat via heat wheels in ducting etc but I've got a Dimplex system in my files as a option for the house here but you need a sealed system where the heat is transferred across to the cabin air, no fumes, smells and still maintain fire seals. Check this option 1st one I found. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SAHRU150-Passive-Heat-Recovery-Unit-Low-Cost-Whole-House-Ventilation/390560499379?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D37e01eb758c54a179c432ae2567f9857%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D25%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D111596766471&_trksid=p2385738.c100677.m4598 Easy temp/portable option 2kw oil heater.
  11. House Of Horror

    Them times ring true what's happen to us at work, We had to close a whole floor of a building which is a fair length in spring, I had to release 14 smoke canisters above the ceilings one weekend then they did the same the following weekend. I was on that site again yesterday and they've got them again so there smoking the ceiling voids again.
  12. Freebies @ British Gas

    That's a saving was that dual fuel, i'm paying £80 a month for both gas & elec. I've got a HP Microserver & a Pi running 24/7 besides rest of electrical stuff on standby. My gas should also drop next week when I put the correct size rads in the room and passage. Then I can upgrade the heating controls to zoning so each room has time/set points so if I'm working from home the only rad calling for heat will be my den/office etc and not keeping the whole house heating running. It's the water meter that I wish would be removed or I could fit a timer to stop the shower to get me out of it.
  13. If you've got. Brit Gas account you can get yourself a Hive hub and 2 remote bulbs. £118 Ideal to set on timer whilst your away etc Or flog on cheap.
  14. Big Changes Ahead

    One of my site contractors moved his boat north from the Broads this year out at sea etc and showed all his photo's of upgrades he did mech/elec work as it's his job. Coming into his final marina what could go wrong? He heard the call the wheels come off. So had to fetch it in on the twin props. I'm seeing next month lets hope he's fixed it as he taking it aboard for the summer next year.
  15. Big Changes Ahead

    The dream has come true for Robin but it's twice as big as his dream build he had a few year back lol. But life has changed in that time. Like me he like's his tech so the improvements may seem high end for some but they make life easy and ongoing costs lower. I've loads of question about the systems onboard but waiting till the subjects come round on his video's to ask. Robin that glass you broke put the dia of the glass up, I've not a clue where my fitting are in my storage unit but then realised we 6 fittings on the site i'm on Monday which could have it in the frames which are not used and will take it out of there if the same size. Glass was used before they put glass fronts on the bulb itself.
