Thanks Phil, stay tuned.
Cirrus project
At last a spare day arrived, and I had time to assemble the pre-machined kit that I bought some time ago. I'm sure you will want to wag fingers at me and rap my knuckles for cheating with a machined kit, but - sorry guys, sadly I do not have a workshop, lathe, pillar drill etc, and so with my eyesight disability this was challenge enough, didnt anticipate how fiddly it would be !!  Next step wil be to try and run it on air to check the timing, and hopefully running it in will loosen it up a ...
Can anyone tell me how to embed photos with Flickr?

My new car
Hi guys,
I just picked this up. It's a 2017 Jetta GLI. It handles really well and it's got plenty of power.

Does anyone have any info on these??

"New" toy for the workshop
With the proceeds of the marine engine I sold to Dampfzauberer (thank you Mirko) I bought myself a bandsaw. I was after this specific model as from my research it is a cut above the other small stuff that's out there - it's a good 30 years old but still in fine fettle. The speed can be mechanically adjusted down to 110 meters per minute, which is slow enough for cutting non-ferric metals and soft alloys. When I got it it wouldn't have cut a sponge, but after a fettle, a clean, removal of the use ...
