Back on the road again!

Just a couple of days off, with the bracket that connects the bottom of the nearside rear shock absorber to the back axle. A substantial piece of steel, but apparantly known to fail occasionally. Quoted £127 for a new pair, decided to weld the lugs back on. However, fellow Mogtalker Richard Jones put a pair in the post to me, after he had replaced his with a different sort. Not too bad a job, the worst part being refitting the springs into the brake shoes! Successful road test, it has been a while since it negotiated Dronfield’s speed bumps so well. Here is the broken one and a good one, (but from the offside,)

West Lancs Railway

A couple of the guys from here visited WorkshopX a couple of months ago, to see progress on 1215. Just happened to be in their area today, and called in for a neb…. immediately invited to jump on the footplate and go for a ride, then had a superb conducted tour of their workshops…

Whilst waiting for the appearance of the Men on the Beach at Another Place.

Eventually, the head of just one man appeared, as the tide was receeding…

Thought something was wrong……

Handling been a but wonky recently, clunky, wandering back end, suspect back nearside shocker……. proved to be right when I took the top securing bolt off, and the rest fell off….. but a ‘popular’ occurrence apparently.

Quoted £126 for a new pair, but fellow Mogtalker Richard Jones has a pair off his car that he is sending me.

The shockers will get a new coat of paint.

Today’s ice cream

A wonderful waffle cone, generously filled, with a nut sprinkle and choc sauce, and a flake, but the pointy bit was not quite ice cream tight and it leaked. Still, 9 out of 10 for this baby.

Need a tip for playing better snooker?

Well, here is the answer! Choose from G1, G2, G3 or G4. G1 of course, is the softest feel, G2 medium feel, G3 is medium/hard feel, and G4 is a hard feel. We are talking tips here, snooker cue tips.

I am going to try a G2.

inky fingers….. again?

Decided to have another sort-out: this time on some boxes of old…very old… letterpress stuff. Eventually sorted 5 different fonts of woodblock type, and quite a few old blocks, logos, that sort of thing. Good fun, snyway!
