Re: what are you doing ?

Being so busy now will bugger you when we are three months down with maybe another 12 months to go. Pace your selves and spread the load. I like what JohnG is doing. Clearly he has this thing sussed.

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Not yet but it’s a step change I’ll need it. Atm no longer talking just breathing as I need all the breath I can get and talking brings me down too far for too long, yet to recover from talking on phone yesterday evening. Paul, as you and I know, you need to maintain your PO2 levels. If you are str...

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Na, the sort that strip supermarket shelves (including alcohol now) are not the sort to climb Snowdon. Same problem on the Breacon Beacons and also seaside resorts like Skegness, Brighton and local to here, Severn Beach. It won’t change until isolation/distancing can be enforced legally. It doesn’t ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yes, Philip, nice to be living in a low population community which undoubtably reduces the chance of cross infection. Unfortunately, many of us are not blessed that way and if we have to work, need to travel in person compacted situations. Not me, but my daughter works in central London and has to u...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I think that whatever the government does (or does not) do will invoke criticism, so they are buggered either way. I doubt it. Certainly they would not be criticised for following WHO guidelines which currently they are not. China is showing that ruthless lock down appears to be working. It’s a new...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I’m more concerned about the callous policy our government has adopted to manage the problem. Interesting that it has now twice been attacked as wrong by the WHO. Our government want to slow down the spread of infection but not protect against it. They want enough of us (probably in excess of 65% of...

trying to "train" the new gaiters to go over the seal holders. I'm not optimistic TBH.
They’ll fit with a bit of brute force and a large dose of washing up liquid.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Today was at NickB’s listening to the very expensive 45rpm reworked version of Fragile. Brilliant! So much bass and voice micro detail exposed and missed on the original recording release. Vinyl of course. Not sure I love it enough to shell out £125 for it though. Maybe I’ll just settle for the occa...

Re: Reusing my old Lenco

I’ve only just pick up on this thread. Lovely looking system and those Jenner’s punch well above their size and weight. Out of interest, are the racks made from modified Ikea Lack coffee tables? If so, you’ve done an excellent and very affordable job there. I thought the middle of the legs were basi...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

That’s a shame. I hope you can get it properly jigged and straightened. It means you’ll need to check everything else carefully including fork stanchions and their mountings. Those magnetic drive speedo and tachometer instruments were early type and wildly inaccurate. Dispensing with originality, I ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Very unusual to see an original front mudguard and for sure, Thomas, that is a fibreglass tank, albeit, it’s walls are more than a quarter inch thick.

I threw mine down the road on several occasions and luckily never damaged the tank, but I know where you are coming from.

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Yes, Thomas is correct. The four speed box from a Crusader/Crusader Sports is a drop in replacement that works really well. Something else I’ve just remembered. The 250cc engine, (well any engine actually) can be seriously damaged if a valve drops when running. There was, back in the day, a history ...
