A few days away

Good walk around the pine forests at Formby hoping to spot a few red squirrels…then on the beach past the old asparagus fields…then later to Another Place, where a team are in the process of re-mounting the Men on the Beach.

SatNag takes part in a gig!

at Dronfield Sports Centre…her choir, the Monday one, did a half hour slot, which went down very well…shouts of ‘More, More’, prompted an encore!

Lads out walking

John Wislon, that well-known spelling error, organised a walk from Elsecar Station around the area, missing out the George and Rock much to our horror, but made up for it when we returned to Elsecar, and the Maison du Biere at the Heritage Centre.
a great day out.

Top of the ‘To Do’ list

The Bagatelle table is being recovered, I haven’t used it for ages…but it’s now in the ‘basement’ stripped, and nearly ready for it’s new baize. Then today, journeyed to near Stone to collect this plough! Always wanted one for the front garden….a dream come true!! Though heaven knows where I will put the horse!!! Jane now has a furrowed brow!

Unstone invents again!

Following the very successful Internationally-Acclaimed Award-winning Unstone Grip, came the Unstone Easy Risers….
Now: the Unstone Spare Spanner, devised specially to slacken the securing nut for the spare wheel. Hand-crafted in our workshops from marine ply, this hand little gadget will live in the garage tool box along with other specialised equipment.

progress!

back axle is in, and bolted up. The U bolts I bought were too long, and not enough thread, so I got the die set out, but the die holder would not turn very far, because of the two long handles! Soon found a way around it though, using a modified box spanner and a rather large spanner to turn it!
Propshaft now bolted up…hubs next!

The axle is back!

It has been rebuilt by the brilliant JB Engineering, alias Billy and Jack Bellinger. I arrived at their workshop today, and all I could see was a new axle by the door! Turned out it was mine, not only scrubbed clean, but painted, and looking superb. Billy and Jack talked me through what they had done, why they had done it, amd why the axle had failed in the first place..
I am convinced I had taken it to the very best place for its rebuild.
They gave me lots of advice and hints and tips for refitting it, so hopefully, Mog will again be mobile very soon! Pictured are all the bits in the back of the tintop, after my 300 mile round trip!

A couple of days in Beeston

With Em and co…nice weather for just wandering around…and no jobs to do there!!!
Elvaston Castle is a superb place to walk around, as is the Highcliffe park, in Notty.
And now; a study of trees, water, ducks…

Chesterfield Car Fest

I should have been there with my Mog today, but the back axle issue dictated otherwise. I caught a bus into Ches, had a good look around, saw only 1 Mog, 1 Landie, one pal, and had just one ice cream…Then caught a bus to Sheffield, a luxury X17, and spent the rest of the day at the bowls club, where SatNag was in a comp. Pictured here are the Mog, the Landie, a Capri that looks like my sort of car, a park bench, an ice cream, the view from the X17 luxury express bus from Chesterfield to Sheffield,and a drill I found on the pavement in Sheffield.
