  1. Hello Mayner , the parcel arrived this morning in good order. The postman did not demand any import tax. The kit looks so good it seems a shame to spoil it by attempting to assemble it ! Next on the wish list are some MGWR 6 wheelers to go with it . Many thanks , Brian.
  2. Hi folks , been away from these fro a long time .am making some progress.
  3. Philip Dix in Dublin sell a lot of small tools for the jewellery trade which would also be of interest http://www.dixequipment.com/
  4. looks great john , I would be interested in one . I think it would be best to get the parts you mention direct form the uk . ( before Brexit !! )
  5. thanks Hurricanemk1c.
  6. Hi folks , anyone got RAL numbers for painting IE autoballasters , specifically the Yellow.

    the future

    might be better than the new bus lanes proposed for Dublin. Think of all the gardens which would be saved !
  8. very nice work Mayner . Does this mean the 650 class kit is going to be released ?
  9. fabulous work . Herbert Simms would be delighted I am sure.
  10. It is the nature of plywood that it will warp of it's own accord if not well supported/fixed For some years I have been using ply on flat roofs where it is expected to survive at least 30 years. We always regarded 416mm as the maximum safe span for 18mm ply. So I am not surprised at the 9mm cupping. The " hardwood" ply sold here in Ireland is visually very pleasing but now has a bad reputation in the roofing trade because it tends to delaminate . The birch is usually very good quality ( especially the scandinavian ones ) but it still needs to be well supported/fixed
  11. A very good post . the current problems in the city centre show the great weakness of tramways - they have to share the road space with other users. A proper underground system will always be difficult and expensive to build but worth having .
