Re: Nothing In Particular

Is it only me that dremmel type cutting wheels have the tensile strength of a butterflies 🦋 There are some *REALLY* tough butterflies out there :) The 4000-series is actually pretty robust- I've been using the cutting discs to cut steel conduit and it's a world apart from what Dremels were in the p...

Heads up!!!

B&Q (diy.com) have a 20% of all power tools sale on. I've always wanted a decent Dremel - I got a Dremel 4000 kit (loads of grinding bits and cutting discs etc.) for 50 quid - that's HALF of what Screwfix & Toolstation charge for the same thing. They've also got discounts on most power tool accessor...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

A mint condition charity shop vinyl find in its original gatefold sleeve. I’m drowning in nostalgia. Reminds me of peach halves in syrup and Carnation milk on a Sunday tea time. 8) Karen’s voice is still spine tingling. 0DBFF6F9-2D09-4388-AD7A-B5676D837009.jpeg Great album with some super tracks.

Re: Remember These?

You can make very smart boxes out of unused fr4 (solder the edges together on the inside)... Solder your nuts into the corners (queue DtB) and round off the edges... Spray black and Robert's your father's brother...

Or spray it a nice fleshy pink like the chip basket...

OK fairy nuff!

Any higher RF stuff should be noticeable then.
Maybe. Maybe not!

I would try the beads for sure.

Thanks - missed that - bit late to this party...

Quite possible that there's something far higher going on and that 'scope can't see it. I'd definitely try the ferrite beads.

Re: Dieselpunk Preamp of Doom and the Beast with Two Backs

What frequency is the oscillation at? If we're over a few 100 kHz, then just using a suitable ferrite bead close to the first grid may well be enough. Won't effect AF at all but will kill most RF. I use these: https://uk.farnell.com/wurth-elektronik/74270015/ferrite-core-cylindrical-95ohm/dp/1635667...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Freezing today in More Park in Maidstone.

That's where our ride started - in thick freezing fog...

Workshop has no heating yet. Can't wait...

Got to make a new cellar door - two parts, like a stable door...

Re: Tablet help.

Bit unfair, that.

Android is not a Samsung product - it's not uncommon for very old hardware to be no longer supported after an os upgrade.

Android 4.4 (KitKat) is from 2013 - 6 years ago. The current version is 10. It's worlds apart.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Rain. Lots of it... So I check the new sump in the cellar of the workshop, and sure enough water is pouring into it... ... mostly, like 90%, coming from the old pipe that used to drain the cellar. The water is bringing a load of silt, fine clay (we're on clay here) which is settling in the sump. Abo...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Ready for the P5 chipboard. This is 22mm high density water-resistant T&G board. A urethane glue is used on each joist and round all the edges. Each board is screwed into each joist, and where appropriate, any noggins. About 300 screws there. There are 17 joists, one stringer and 48 noggins,. Each n...
