  1. I am not happy with the term "Heathen". Just because we do not believe in the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus. Keep Bloody Religion out of it . This is a wonderful afternoon and I would love to come but as the dreaded M N D has struck me I am unable to play now

    How to remove/replace 'rusted-in' screws?

    I made a 4 or a 5 mm core drill for this nasty problem when all else failed. Then replaced the hole with a matching dowel and then re-drilled. I cheated as I used a hardened sleeve ejector for the blank for the drill and ground teeth on to it
  5. I once went to see a Chair Bodger in the woods around High Wycombe. He made Windsor Chair Legs on a Pole Lathe in less than 2 minutes
  6. Come on Dave "Tricks" they are Bodges. Or may be they are Prostitutes "Tricks" and they "F====d" the Concertina. At least it is not as bad as the lovely Wheatstone Duet 60 odd keys that had been glued together with Araldite that I was offered

    Try different polymer such as 30% Glass filled Nylon 66 if you can. For the ends try C Z 101 or "Admirality Brass, you can get them from U K Model Engineering Suppliers you could try Nickel Silver Cooksons or Betts in Birmingham England may help.You appear to be using Poly Prop, this will not pray paint or glue

    As I showed David Leese a Scratch Pen I think that I can take the credit for this. You can get one from Proops Bros
