Red Cars share roll bar!

My pal J B Stephens has borrowed my roll bar for the rest of the motorsport season, he became aware he needed a diagonal, something which is not fitted to his…so with the deft use of a few spanners, and a visit from him, mine was soon removed, and he winged his way back to wildest Cheshire with it…he now tells me it has been swapped over, and let’s hope the rest of the season is a good one for him….

a trip to Clumber Park

A group of 13 Morgans,plus 1 Beemer, and even a bike…met here today…The bike was mine, …and caught up with some old pals…and I managed two laps of the lake. I carried the bike on the luggage rack!

the Great British Car Journey

A new car museum, recently opened in Ambergate, near Belper…a big group of us went from the Mog car club, but would be great to wander around again, but with just a couple of pals…lots of memories of cars  not what my father had, but what I had! It’s an age thing!!!

Helicoiled at last!

The bolts holding the windscreen supports were well past their best…and had been codged in with filler and ptfe tape. I used a kit to drill then tap the holes, insert helicoils, and the job seems to have worked!

Re-legged bench

The bottoms of the legs were getting a tad rotten, so I gave them leg transplants! Cutting a few inches off, boring holes in the legs and new bits, dowel rod inserts, and Gorilla wood glue…SatNag painted them, and it all looks good.

Another job finished….

Nearly, anyway! This is a linisher I have (hopefully) restored for the Railway engine workshop…it came to me with a replacement motor, which I have to admit, has been a bit of a pig to fit in…but hopefully, the tame Sparky at the workshop will wire it up, it’s 3 phase….and it should be ready to linish!

New (sort of) Bench Vice

This has been in Jane’s Dad’s workshop for years and years…and even more years….and we were clearing the house before selling it….I bought it home, had it shotblasted, then I painted it, and it has now replaced the (what I thought was big!) one in the garage.
