a little torch 'attention' required



light lunch ..... coffee and Pam's GF Cappuccino cake .... yum



16 out of 0.55M sq



trimmed up ready to put away again

Pam had to have a play about with them ....



held on with bulldog clips .... for now
going to take a few hours fettling, before I can get them welded in situ .... and dare say the 'design' may well change before then !!

also need to get the gates painted too .... if a colour can ever be selected!!

right gentlemen ...... I am in need of your collective knowledge/experience .... (if there's anyone actually reading this!!) .... maybe best guesses.

tripped over this pic today ......



this is the valve that controls the 'Drema's throttle .. this ain't mine but is identical off another Hydrema.

I have five levels of 'volume ' ..... Idle 1000rpm, standby 1400 rpm, low 1800 rpm, medium 2000 rpm and high 2300 rpm, all button controlled.
she auto idles after 10 seconds inactivity and I pre-select what 'volume ' I need on start up (or at any time I like after that)

if you can't make it out on the pic ..top pipe is labelled L and the port below it is labelled P

I'm guessing the 'goldy' coloured bit next to L is a solenoid and there're 4 wires going into the other bit from the multi plug ... as far as I recall and can see here

Anyone ever seen one of these before, or got any ideas how it works ???? .... it basically varies the stroke of what must be a cylinder which pushes the throttle cable and opens the injector pump up to give it the beans

I surmise that P bleeds pressure as required, from the LS line, when it senses a demand for 'action'

(I'll have to see if I can see WTF it comes from on mine),which is in no where near as convenient a position, to examine (tucked down/under/beside the Deutz's sump),as this one is - hence grabbing the pic ....
but quite how much travel to give the throttle must be determined by those wires, which presumably are the four separate switches on the dash - SB, L, M & H

also guessing the 'goldy' coloured item is responsible for dumping said pressure for auto idle to occur ??
Some kind of proportional stepper solenoid perhaps?

If this ever goes wrong it's gonna get a cable - end of, but would be nice to know HTF it works and whether anyone has any idea WTF this 'valve' is called ???
plus of course how it functions

Game on fellas .......

rudely awoken at 7.30 by me phone this morning .... me drug delivery driver lost one day we'll have someone turn up who's actually been here before !!

so a slightly earlier start than usual (I am retired, after all ) ....When it had stopped precipitating, 'bout 10.30, had a lil' project to sort.
Clara's birthday Saturday coming, and we've not got her until Friday afternoon this week - unusually, so had some time to get this together for her.



had considered making one, but couldn't for the price of this .... and having the dry time to do it.
pretty good kit, but yer average Joe'd struggle getting it together, especially with some of the issues encountered and some pretty crap 'destructions' to follow

when I put it together it had captures for M10 bolts ... in the UK they'm a 17mm AF head.
Bolts in the swing kit were M10 with continental 16mm AF heads ....
guess what didn't happen in their capture holes ..... they weren't and just spun
Good job I had some M10 x 55s to replace 'em with
Seems odd with all the ISO sh1t that Euro M10s are 16mm AF heads, yet nuts are 17mm AF
... have a lot on the 'Drema that're 16/17mm combinations

hopefully it'll have the desired effect, when she next arrives ......




She loves the swings at the play area, next to her nursery school, down in the village .... one of her own ought to go down a storm - we hope
The baby seat's for little Shem, who'll be here, from Plymouth, this weekend, for her birthday, but have a.n.other std seat for when he's grown a bit

Gonna have to bungee him to the glider though, for now ... super glue might be a bit drastic

spent a few hours after, collecting bloody leaves and bits of tree, after all the bloody rain and winds, these last few days ........ forgot to pop the bonnet on't 'Drema for a hose suss though ......Manyana

'twere a busy weekend last weekend .... lil' miss had her third birthday Saturday .... the swing (despite being in place for several days hadn't been noticed ) and she had a great surprise to find her very own ....







was a bit of a hit

A lot of the day spent at her favorite farm park later on,. with her furry friends .....

and lots of soft play toys for her and lil' cuzzin Shem ...



followed by a bash down the village hall, on the Sunday for her 'pals', with one of granny's 'specials' as centre piece ...





Pam and I have spent the rest of the week trying to recover ...... but thwarted by a hectic week ....
An old friend....guy who came with me when I bought the 'Drema in Norwich and spent a lot of his time helping me clearing my old workshop, got out of bed Monday and promptly had a stroke .... not good .... so been back and fore with his missus to see him at a specialist unit 30 miles away.

Then had a friend from another forum spend Thursday morning with me, drooling over and getting to know the subtleties of 'Drema ownership ..... and seeing what she'll do .... he wants one and we've found a suitable candidate in Sweden, he's in the process of negotiating on and planning a trip home for it



Plus of course ... the usual Clara duties 3 days this week ......... so been a far from recuperative week

well after an extensive questioning of the seller and a comprehensive set of pix getting poured over ... yon 'Drema got discounted ... stood too long and too much required to get it back up to a usable/serviceable condition ..... so the second choice option got explored a bit further



a deal struck and it will hopefully land in the UK just before or just after Crimbo



8 years younger .... bit bigger in the arse than the 1500, but looks a hell of a nice tool

can't wait to go take a look at her

ain't had a lot to say lately ... been too piggin' wet to do a lot ...... at some point it must've been dry enough for the odd hour to drill this ....




.... lump of oak for a mantle shelf for the step-daughter's house ..... had to be perfectly square ....



and a dead 12mm hole for these ......


interesting fitting .... with an offset for leveling up with ... assuming one gets the holes in the wall on centres and square too .... I did, but not before finding a lump of steel right where the one had to go, about 50mm into the masonry .... took some getting through with a 10mm .... was 12mm thick !! f**k knows what it was doing in there

anyway .... yon mantle is gonna need a 'kin big crow bar to get it back off the wall .... forgot a pic

we did get two whole hours rain free, yesterday morning and as everything is absolutely saturated, thought it'd be a fair use of the time to run the roller over the patch as it's all had such a wetting ..... managed to get over damned near everything accessible, 'fore it pee-ed down again and it went down pretty well - yet again



got the odd small puddle in a few depressions, beside the 'Drema (that you can't see there) but on the whole it ain't bad and drains really well.
can see the water from the perimeter channel literally running into the far end of the main centre drain and disappearing nicely.
more black stuff and a load of clean 40mm required in the new year ... get the channels filled and topped up to a level and then black up to the finish level. Gonna have to re-locate a load of stuff out the way (somewhere???) to get that far end all sorted to one finished level

Also need to find a home for those two bloody rocks

these two have become total carpet potatoes - aside from the odd two minute scurry outside, they're perfectly content to chill and let it rain



don't think they'll be suffering cabin fever anytime soon

when it's not been peeing down .... we've had the odd 'good frost'



..... but followed a few hours later by yet more wet stuff ... very strange weather .... blowing like hell tonight, but dry for a change and very mild ... wouldn't believe it was the shortest day today, by the temperature tonight

at least the remnats of this lot have all disappeared elsewhere ... but not before I'd picked up a fair few of them



hopefully that's the lot for this season !!

so......the boss has had a change of plans .. again!! ...... therefore so have I

apparently it's going to be much more conducive to site me new shed where me boxes are !!..... and'll give me an enclosed (out of sight) 'yard' behind it, up where everything is sat currently ....... aside from the logistical dilemma of shifting three loaded boxes to a new location, off to the one side, where the rock got dug out, it does make a lot of sense. (I've had the conversation with me crane man a while back, when she first started muttering about it)

aiming for a 40'W x 45'L building so essentially a similar foot print to that already occupied by me boxes, but wider and slightly longer, with the solid pine end facing the house and the 'open'/door end facing the 'yard' / N. East, which'll keep 95% of the weather off the 'open' end, much as the box doors are currently ... and'll allow for 'expansion' (another bay - or two ) at a later date if required



bit of a rough aerial view and lay out below for yers

that's why that end of the patch is getting a concerted effort at creating a 'good' hardstand area



obviously all very approximate !!

boxes are gonna have to remain, until said shed is able to accommodate their contents

She'd got me pondering it a couple of mornings ago, so, as it'd actually not rained in several hours and had been blowing a hooley, Saturday, the ground was pretty dry, got the tape out and had a bit of a suss of this and a few other possible options ? ..... [hopefully you can see the marks ?] .... and make a bit of sense from the above.... really need to borrow a drone for half an hour ..... one going cheap up Gatwick way --- apparently !!







need to get up in the air a bit really



thought it was gonna be a 'net-less Crimbo for me monday morning ... turned old faithful off sunday night and unplugged it to clear the RAM .....It did not wanna turn on / reboot next morning
dismantled it from it's hidey hole under me desk .... de-paneled it ... gave it some compressed air - outside I may add, having just hoovered the house, that morning ...... and having had a damned good look at its onny/offy thingy, decided that was the fault.
So left the front fascia off, so's I can get at said button directly .....

gave the Dyson its monthly blast out, whilst I had the compressor full of air, then re-installed the ol' girl in spot, beside me leg ..... powered up and pressed go .... hey presto I was back !! ..... anxious moment though ....

dread doing the upgrade thingy, as a lot of you will already know !!
