    retired. spend my days rabbit and pigeon clearance
  1. Project next week.

    Nah, I have more pressing things to do in my life
  2. Project next week.

    Well if I ever need to replace the spring eye bushes on the Landrover again it will be a piece of cake. In the back of the workshop I had the original springs I took off my 76 short wheel base. As I was on my own I cut the end off one of the scrap springs to make for easy handling. I dont know if the bushes were original but prior to wire brushing they looked well rusted. As i didnt have any mandrels I had to resort to sockets, DONT TRY THIS AT HOME sockets have been known to shatter, although one was an impact socket. I am in no doubt a 10 ton press would have done it just as well, but this was just another little play exercise. I pressed it back in just to complete the exercise.

  6. Project next week.

    Made up a rough tool for folding angle brackets, not that I want to make any brackets, just playing. Just had a few scrap ends lying about, 2, 3 and 6mm, it handled the 6mm without effort. I am pretty happy with the way its turned out

  11. Project next week.

    Bit of fine tuning, The press bar had just a tiny bit of end float, a couple of pieces of 1mm brass sheet sorted it. Time to go through the scrap heap for some pressing tools.

    Anyone crossing the channel on a flight path to Stansted will have a good display.
