    I think you shouldn’t use such derogatory language towards the British

    Been trying to sort out the shed built 2 supports to go under the kitchen top and put sheves between them for power tools and underneath wood but shed is still too small for what I intend to do so still scratching the head how to set up for the best.

    Was given a Bantam in 1963 when I was 13 it did not work, and I never got it to go probably because at the time I did not know much about 2 stroke engines. When I was seventeen I got and old AJS 250 then I thought I was the Bees knees with the next bike which was the Royal Enfield GT continental probably bought because it looked like the TT bikes of the time.

    The first time I saw my Beesa the guy had spent a lot of time doing it up in the 50,s ,he held a cloth dipped in petrol where the Carby went and the motor fired up on a kick start. Later I found the timing and firing control with the points a real pain. The bike stuck me up going to see my girl friend later wife about half way round a big lake at night 30 miles from home.Finally got it running,it was winter and freezing. Apart from these probs the bike was a best friend for me.Amazing performance for the size of the engine.Hard to find the points set over here.

    My latest project halted for a while is to convert a very old Tool Post Grinder to grind Mammoth Molars., latest tests show a Hernia behind a Hernia, no lifting heavy stuff. I have to relocate it 20 metres,thinking of calling in my strong Samoan friends help so I can continue.

    BSA road racer, always remember my dad coming out with a story.

    Him and his mate was racing home down country lanes one eve and could see two little lights so his mate thought it was two cyclists and went to part them by going through the middle of them only to find out t was an old Morris half ton van running only its side lights. "ouch"

    Always nicknamed em Bl**dy Sore Ar$e..

    Me, just been another "boxing" day.

    Yes Derek, this is hopefully the first of many trips, although somewhat restricted for the next 3 years by work until early retirement. Have a week off this week and a few weekends we can use this year and 3 week sojourn in September. There many many great canalside pubs and we hope to visit as many as we can, but with many years of cruising still to go there’s plenty of opportunity. And, yes, if you’re caught by the Canal and River Trust they can do you for being drunk in charge of a boat, however, while I wouldn’t want to navigate drunk because I don’t want to wreck my boat, the odd glass of vino won’t go amiss.

    I donít think you would Derek, the CRT arenít good at prosecuting anyone apart from boaters in London for unlicensed Boats coz theyíre easy targets, if what they say in the media is anything to go by

    Under orders, well a special request from my daughter in law who commissioned an butchers block type unit FOC of course.

    Approx 800 high and top 720 x 620 mm it had to be solid and moveable so lockable castors at one end, full width drawer, top glued up mainly beech with a couple of maple strips and breadboard ends of I'm not sure what, looks like softwood but isn't, all wood from my stash of stuff.
    Frame out of 30mm mahogany, reclaimed science lab benches with legs laminated from same stock to make 80mm square, shelf is reclaimed beech engineered flooring.

    I gave the top 6 coats of danish oil and expected them to treat the frame with the same oil but they painted it!

    I forgot to take photos of the finished item but my son sent me this one.
