Too busy!
Changed the front discs and pads on the van this week, 108,000 miles for the discs from new, better than the rears which only did about 55,000. Third set of front pads. Took and hour, probably because it was brass monkey outside and I was b;**dy cold! :-))
Just scanning pages for the website tonight, a couple of brochures by the Vacuum Oil Co of New York on compressors and hot bulb engines. Mainly to do with lubrication but a lot of interesting detail on construction and operation, both dated 1920's.
Hope to pass 6000 pages on the website this week, building up a bit of a backlog now, still got to finish the Lucas magneto stuff I started a few weeks ago...
Carlisle on Thursday or Friday, then a weekend off. We are in work tomorrow and hoping to start the factory move next week.

Borderway machinery auction perchance? Thursday. Last one was flippin' depressing. Small tools line's been crap for months (not to mention more stuff getting nicked than sold). Too many optimistic reserves in the main line too. I'm picking up floor tiles just outside Carlisle, so I'll still probably nip in and have a look... Anybody go to the Hexham vintage sale? I got sidetracked by house rennovations and forgot about it. Last years one wasn't bad. Just sitting watching my less than bright neighbour pulling out about =A3500 worth of dead Swedish Super Willow staves. Told him that planting in August wasn't a good idea... Oh well, what do I know (admiring the acre and a half of willow coppice on MY side of the road lol) Cheers, Scruff. PS it has been rather quiet in here of late, hasn't it?

Thought for the day, "if all the cars in the world lined up one after the other there would still be the idiot trying to overtake twenty at a go"

Hazel & me went out this morning to buy her a "new" car. We looked at Nissan Micras as she's had an F reg one for three years without problems & is looking for the same but newer.
Found a red three door on an S plate 50,000 £1,350.00. Very interested in this one, but the oil barely covered the end of the dipstick & obviously hadn't been changed for many thousands of miles. No SH.
Maroon metallic three door on a P plate 57,000 £1,300.
Purple five door on a P plate for £1,050. Very nearly bought it too until I noticed the mileage was 94,000. Lots MOT's etc.
So despondently home for tea & a sandwich.
I don't suppose there is anyone here with a decent Micra for sale??

At Borderway the small tools lines have dwindled significantly since they upped the buying and selling costs. Hexham !!!!!!!Lucky you being sidetracked, what a complete waste of time, another vintage auction where nobody was interested in selling anything, reserves far too high and not met by a country mile. Alot of junk, ok if thats what you like I suppose, only vintage engine of any note was a late model Lister `d`(oh! and a Ruston PT on one of the stalls for £300, didn`t bother to scratch the paint to see if it was gold plated underneath ;-] ). Will take alot of improvement to get me back next year. I`m on nights next week, give me a shout if you want tea and biscuits in the afternoon, Peter. (I`m in Carlisle about 3 mins from the castle) Cheers, MartinH
