Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

Time before when I went, Mark was still behind the counter. Whether that was part of a hand over period I don't know. I suppose with the nature of the business, especially the small stuff, learning where it is all stored will be a bit of a challenge. No excuse for 6mm MDF though, it's rather self ex...

Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

Went down to Merrits and they didn't have the auto close latch that I wanted. The young lad that served me didn't seem to know what I meant. Back up Butts and over to Redmans, Colin of course knew exactly what I was after and he had a choice of anodised or powder black versions of the latches. £2.50...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

I'm on the same version v89.0 / 64 bit Windows version. I hadn't noticed the extra spacing problem but it is the same on mine. On the copy thing, I think it is because the "About Firefox" is predominantly a graphic. You can copy from any of the links that are available from there though.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

I have found an anomaly with the latest version of Firefox. If you have multiple tabs open as I do when browsing the site. Index page on one tab then the unread posts list in another. I then open each post in a new tab. All that is fine until I close the last but two tabs, leaving the Index and unre...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

We are being drip fed a four week postponement of the relaxation of restrictions..... The betting is that it is now inevitable. BBC news reported as much this morning quoting that the information was from government sources. I'm just an ordinary bloke but a delay seems pretty obvious to me. "Irreve...

As Kev says, a one way system. In through the side door, through the workshop and out via the front door. That way round as there is more room to distance if you have to wait.

Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

A closer look at the gate while temporarily hung told that the top rail was not sitting flush with the gate post. No good for an auto close latch so I remedied this before its second coat of paint by cutting a small piece out of the stop rail in the gate post that was causing the problem. Gate now s...

Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

I took the gate off yesterday and sanded it down. I did it with a sanding disk on the drill and took the opportunity to ease and odd tight spot. I temporarily rehung it last night and my easing's have done the trick. Gave it a first coat of timber preserver. It's blue like the gate and shed was befo...

Depends on the angle taken of course but you cant see any of the local mill stacks. I suppose it could have been taken from the welfare centre side?

One would assume that this photo was taken in Barlick but where is the location? A lot will have changed in over a hundred years but it has always puzzled me.

Re: GOOD TV

BBC, three part prison drama ""Time" with Sean Bean and Stephen Graham. Violent on occasion but a good tale of two men's struggles on each side of the fence so to speak. Another good one from Jimmy McGovern who tends to tell it like it is. I have worked in "category A" H.M. Prisons establishments an...

Re: Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Not a stable enough day for painting the gate so a batch of bread it is. Similar to above but with the addition of sunflower seeds as well as the chia. Sunflower in the dry mix and the chia into the liquid content so that it swells. I find that this expands the dough enough to make two loaves instea...

Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

Ours hasn't been done for a couple of years. I think I will take it off to give it a good sanding. Might tighten the gate posts up too, they have a slight bit of play. You need solid posts for the auto close latches. :smile:
