  1. I spent 43 years repairing aircraft. 28 years in the RAF and another 15 as a civilian working for the military.I enjoyed most of it although I was apart from my family a lot of the time I was in the mob.I managed to achieve marksman standard with rifle, pistol and sub machine gun. I held a SGC for 30 years shooting both game and clays until a shoulder problem forced me to give it up. Vic.
  2. Is the gun right hand cast? Vic.
  3. We are with the much criticised BT for broadband and phone calls. We are on 'fibre to the cabinet' which is about 200m away. When we changed to fibre we were promised about 30mbps but actually got 50mbps. This was upgraded to a promised 50mbps without extra charge but we actually get 70mbps. Before we changed to fibre we were getting 12mbps. Vic.
  4. I am familiar with these Manifoil cabinets from my RAF days. The cabinets and safes of various sizes were used to store secret classified documents. The opening code could never be guessed and is changeable to your personal setting. Vic.
  5. Do you mean what used to be called a 'decoke' ? If so it is not neccessary with modern engines but particularly with modern fuel, petrol or diesel. Don't waste your money. Vic.
  6. Lights staying on are favourite culprits, boot lights or interior lights are the main ones. Check that the lights go out when the doors are shut or take the bulbs out to identify the culprit. Vic.
  7. I have driven Honda Jazz CVT gearbox cars for twelve years and they have been faultless but it is essential that the gearbox oil is changed every two years or 25K miles using only Honda CVT-F oil. As has been stated CVT's are used successfully in a variety of cars. Belts were replaced by a chain like device many years ago. Vic.

    Speed Cameras

    The cameras themselves are yellow but are the top of thirty foot poles and not obviously visible. Yes of course you should not be exceeding the speed limit but the old style cameras were an additional reminder that you were in a restricted area. Vic.

    Speed Cameras

    They are in exactly the same place as the old speed cameras with the speed camera warning signs still in place but they may be ANPR cameras as well, the same as mobile speed cameras. Vic.
  10. An interesting trend in Lincolnshire right now that may be happening elsewhere. Speed cameras are being replaced by what look like Average Speed cameras except that there isn't series of them. They look like average speed cameras in that they are mounted on top of high poles so that they are not immediately obvious from the ground when driving along and the poles aren't yellow all the way down to the ground. I thought the law regarding the sighting of speed cameras required that they are in clear sight and painted yellow. Vic.
  11. Your local Firearms Office may be interested if you try and put that many guns on your certificate. They may suspect you of dealing. Vic.
  12. In what way has the gun been modified? Comb height, choke size, length of pull? Vic.
  13. Is the 'on' light visible and the charging light if you have it on charge? Most laptops have a reset switch. It is usually inside but accessible via a pinhole on the back. Using an unfolded paper clip locate the hole and push the pin inside. You will 'feel ' a click and the laptop will either boot up or shut down ready for re-booting. Vic.
