    New British £50 note.

    My Factory stands on land once owned by Ada Lovelaces family. Just a coincidence that in 1983/4 we made the first mouldings for Bruno Moreau and Andre Nacatch for their invention of the Smart Card. I had great difficulty understanding how you could download Notional cash on to this micro chip. What was he talking about !. I have a certain respect for the Hawking proposal as I to have the dreaded M N D. I a,m unable to even get a scale of C from my Tina
  2. Good Mike we are on the same side singing to the same sheet. I only wish that I could come and enjoy the Afternoon. Interesting that the Church Hall was financed by a contribution from a Levy on Rubbish Best Wishes Old Nic
  3. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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

    3D printing your boxes

    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
