Re: Nh 350

Earlier this year I built up four modified MO1 Mags from parts with 'Brightspark' condensers - They produce good sparks. The trick is to remove the original condenser and replace the coil connections with something set in an infill medium. I experimented with 'Clearcast Plastic' (too brittle), a mac...

Re: QD hub dismanteling

Well, I learn something new every day . . . "In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘 寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a c...

Re: Lathes

A friend-of-a-friend (Donald) has a small Garage business in Leith (North Edinburgh). He bought the premises 30 years ago at the same time as an Engineer (Ronnie) bought the place next door. These are 17th century buildings, one being initially a Cooperidge and the other a coach house for the Mayor ...

Re: Really Jim..

Ships bridges used to have spinning disks instead of windscreen wipers.

I think they were called the "Kent Clearview" - they seemed to work well.

I used to get funny looks from motorists. I took the box to a local 'Bike Guru' (Cliff Baker I think his nam...
