  1. Aerial photos of Ireland from the 1930's+

    Looking through all the pictures that come up with an "Ireland" search, there seems to be quite a few that they are unsure of the location of. They might be happy to receive any suggestions from people on here who might recognise any of them.
  2. Kingsbridge - workbench

    This is currently on BBC 4 Extra - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0072szv/episodes/player - being audio, it should be available everywhere. One of the best examples of a book reading that I've heard.

      That sounds like the switch blades, as in the picture I just posted - try making sure the moving blade actually connects to the fixed one.

  4. Peco points

    If you're relying the 'contact wiper' to make/break the electrical connection, then you can find that they aren't 100% reliable, but they can be made to work better by a little judicious bending with a small screwdriver, so that they make better contact with the fixed rails as the position changes.

    Do you actually mean 'shorting' or are you just losing connection?

    Aden cannon shells turn up at the boot sale here and make a handy paperweight.

    I know, "To je Škoda", as the Czechs say.

    Should be on an Opel, that it would be a fully GM machine...

    Whoops, coping saws I meant - sometimes I just can't cope...

    There are fretsaws about, intended largely for wood, mostly taking pin-ended blades.

    It can be worth getting a saw with an adjustable frame, then broken blades can still be used.
