    I have one too, it has been used extensively working on the model when combined angles were required.

  4. I understood that if they are parked on private property (without the landowners permission) they are illegal and any speeding tickets can be overturned. I see from research that they are now allowed (from 2015) to hide the van out of sight and can still catch people.

    what would cause that, screed poured while concrete is still green? or just a bad mix?

    Broad Ambition - The Model

    ooh, its a while since I updated this, truth be told its been a tad cold out in the workshop, and I have been a bit busy, as one of the next steps was a coat of paint on the hull, I need a decent outdoor temperature for that. That was until Charlie posted pictures of the new mast, ah I thought - a challenge, am I going to be able to reproduce that now. well after some playing around I figured a method and yes I can reproduce that, the weather has brightened and from single figures we are up to 14 degrees in the workshop today. I used a 3mm milling bit in a pillar drill as a router bit to cut the holes and make the rebate. the stalled progress has restarted. as for the painting, yes that will have to wait, but I think I can find a few of the simpler jobs to keep me busy.

    My Day

    my day so far, popped to mother in laws to fix a corner suare that had split, couldnt get under it so had to fix with a sheet of 1/2" ply over the top, when we arrived mother in law had tripped up the stairs (not the one I was fixing) and cut her head open, took her to A&E where my daughter stayed with her while I went back and finished fixing the step. after I finished I packed up and headed back to the hospital to see how they were getting on - I was there less than 5 minutes before they came out - still within the 20 minutes free parking - yay, back to MIL's changed the lightbulb at the top of the stairs (the one she cant reach. then came home, out again tonight for an astronomy meeting. other than that - nothing done.

    sound works for me charlie, you should always be able to click the youtube symbol to open it in a youtube page where you should be able to see the volume control.

    we once had a hamster infestation (well ok 1) in our kitchen, not sure how it got in (though it may have been the inspection hatch for the gas meter) but it didnt stay for long, 8 cats in the house soon discouraged it.
