that ought to extend its life a bit



would've put it all back together, but waiting for some brake pads for it ... what's in the caliper is way beyond serviceable ... and explains the shortage of brakes, last time I used it .. much easier to do on the bench than grovelling under the back frame. It'll wait, 'til they arrive

so while I had the band saw plugged in .....




thought I'd chop a few more of these .......



got eight sat and needed another eight for all the various things that need boss-ing up

need to find me a bigger 3 jaw chuck .... as per usual - used to have a couple of suitable candidates ... which went in the workshop clear out .... couldn't keep it all -- wasn't allowed
can bore them out to the required 70.2 mm then
need summat that'll take a 100 mm comfortably .... 'least they'm sat with t'others now, ready

Genny has been good to me ...



all displays as they should be and did a vid for people's acoustic delight .. to show just how quiet a 'silent-pak' can be

https://youtu.be/GlnRHX5LtOM

genny behaved all day with one exception .... kick off !!!! ... did not wanna play ... so ..... earths off the starter - post filed back to bare, shiny stuff, as were the copper terminals and all dogged up ... went first flick and behaved for the rest of the day ... must remember to vaseline it all .... keep the old verdigris at bay, 'til next time ..... and beyond


and today ..... yet more paperwork for HMRC .. IHT forms - again and prepping sales blurb ...
sod giving an agent 2% for sweet **** all ...
we'd have to supply it all anyway ...
managed to sell me workshop site without their help to a 'national' .... think we can manage this one too .....

the Turpins in the bank wanted 2.5% of the entire estate to do the Probate paperwork -- for which we would have to supply ALL the info. anyway.
might make this a bit of a side line .... not rocket science

8th Aug

Was a looong day at Ken's , clearing scrap ... again. Plus 80 years accumulation of tish

got this lot in the post to HMRC and Probate office yesterday afternoon ...... lot of work gone into that lot ... well worth the damn near nine quid for registered post to make sure it gets there




and some bit wet here that night ... if the buckets, etc. were to be believed, must've been 50+mm of the wet stuff ...... with more forecast, 'til late tomorrow

9th Aug

six month MOT day in The Heath in Cardiff .... proper lashing down here when I left .... Blue skies in Cardiff.

Got called in, hour and a half early, 'cos they had a cancellation .... shot down there........and was still waiting to be seen at my original appointment time of quarter to three

New specialist nurse in my consultant's clinic..remembered me from my visits to The Royal Free, in Hampstead, London, in 2011 .... said [I]"you're the chap who Professor Mehta examined, with 30 students gathered round, with the three plus kilo spleen .. you were a rarity "[/I

Amazingly small world

Took a mauling that day .... from some very pretty student doctors ....... an' that was just the blokes

they got a new treatment if I want to try it ..... tablets .....apparently seems OK so far, with them that's given it a go ... will have a ponder
... be a damned sight more convenient than getting stabbed by Pam once a week ..... and doesn't need to be kept refrigerated, so very mobile ....... as usual there're side effects, so need to have a good read, as I do pretty well on what I'm on ATM ... but could always go back to it if I can't handle it -- or it doesn't like me......... Hmmmmm?

got the little Mountfield back together one evening last week ...



just in time to get rained on ... was a so so week here for weather

day up at Ken's AGAIN Thursday, sorting scrap/rubbish/etc. and 'dealing' with this, after it'd been emptied ....



me on the rivet heads out side with a sharp cold chisel/hammer and the two BILs giving it some inside ... rolled up a treat .... there wasn't a barn above it when it went in there and beyond moving (in one piece) anyway ... even if we could've gotten at it.

not seen so much of Clara these last couple of weeks ... school holidays, so mummy is about, but she's not lost her fascination with rock ..



or diggers



when she does appear for the odd few hours

it's 'apple' time again ...



pity the wasps had beaten us to it on a lot of 'em .... never seen 'em eat whole apples from the inside out ..... just leaving the skins hanging on the trees
What was left'll do Pam a few litres of her fave fresh apple juice though



having got well pee-ed off with grating 'em all last year she thought she'd try chopping 'em up ....
I squashed em as hard as i dared, for fear of breaking her press,
........ and got sod all, not even a trickle
... so they came back out for a grating LOL
.... and hey presto .
.. a good litre and a half out the first batch, so far. Give it a turn every time I go near it, but reckon it's about done
.... next load for grating time

been waiting for some new fuel line and a tap/filter for the Mountfield ... it has a habit of dropping it's fuel tankful, when parked ... float needle obviously can't cope with the head of fuel in the tank .... it turned up Friday so had a sesh sorting that and then, as per usual, when it ain't been used for any length of time, it was flywheel off time .... bloody spiders like occupying the points dept. and it rarely goes without a sort out.

anyway ... got in there and the casing's full of what can only be condensation ... no way for rain to get in there .

Got most of it out, but had to lift the points out to get it all ..... and discovered ...



an acute shortage of connections from the coils to the points, which was not going to be helpful to the cause .. God knows where the missing inch plus had gone ??

so out came my trusty Weller ..... this is 50 years old .... had it for my 12th birthday ... (was into 'electronics', as it was known then)



and extended me missing wire



nice bit of rubber tube sleeving to cover the joint and the job was a good un

re-assembled it all ....



and gap-ed the points (anyone old enough to remember what they are?) dropped the flywheel back on, keyed it up and dogged it down for a try for a spark .. YAY!! first spin up ...
stuck it all back together, litre of motion lotion in't tank and it went first flick .... which is pretty miraculous for a Briggs an' Scrap 'em :giggle: .... no idea how old this little Mountfield is, but it must be catching the Weller up pretty quick ... I'd say it's early 70's if not older !

Anyway ... let it warm up, gave it a bit of a tune and it sat on the bench happily ticking over ..... put, put, put, put
.... was going to get it down off there in the morning
.. 'til Pam just reminded me, I got to go back to The Heath first thing, for some more blood tests .
.... has to be early as they're flying them to Switzerland as soon as they get 'em packed
.... did offer to go over and they could have 'em 'fresh out the arm', if they'd like, but the answer was NO!

Some 'real specialist' lab out there's gonna analyze my metabolic rate from 'em to decide whether I can try their new treatment regime ... Eliglustat TABLETS !!
no more being tied to the fridge, or a weekly infusion bag, or getting stabbed by Pam, of a Monday , if it's a successful analysis!! .... cross yer fingers
