Since then I haven't been able to see any of Mr. Steinke's pictures on MM or HMEM.

I use Ubuntu with firefox and have it set to allow images from both the above sites. I can see pictures on other peoples threads, just can't see those posted by Mr. Steinke.

I have found this bit of information that may help you with your unblocking of the images.

(start quote)
"You may have accidentally clicked the 'Block Images' item in the right click context menu while trying to save an image.
Check the image exceptions: Tools > Options > Content: Load Images: Exceptions - See: Options window - Content panel

A way to see which images are blocked is to click the Site Identification icon (favicon/image on the left end of the URL/location bar) and click the "More Information" button:
-The Security tab of the Page Info window (also accessible via Tools > Page Info) will open
-Go to the Media tab of that Page Info window.
-Select the first image and scroll down though the list with the Down arrow.
-If an image in the list is grayed and there is a check mark in the box "Block Images from..." then remove the check mark to unblock the images from that domain.

Also see:
Images or animations do not show
Images or animations do not load (Mozillazine KB article)"
(end quote)


The above information was taken from this link. If the above does not help then go here and maybe you can figure out how to unblock the images.

Hope that this help sort the problem.

Cheers

Don

Thanks Don. I thought I had replied yesterday but guess I didn't get it right. I followed your directions on the id icon, and found what I had blocked. Removed the block and all is well, I can see the pictures on both sites now.

Glad you got it sorted out. I had just been reading about that problem someplace else so that is why I was able to help you out so quick. It's not that I'm good, I was just lucky on this one.

Cheers

Don

Hi there and welcome to the forum for those who love metal and engines!

I won't be of any help about spark plugs but someone else will be sure to chime in.

We would love to see the progress of your engine in WIP thread....

Cheers,
John.

I think you're talking about the insulator material which in this case is a material called Corian, which is a type of acrylic used a lot in kitchen benchtops. I also use it for spark plug insulators and it can be found on ebay relatively easily if you search for "corian pen turning blank" or similar. Otherwise, try contacting local kitchen counter top fitters/suppliers. They often use the stuff and have masses of scrap material that you can probably get very cheap or even free.

Another alternative material is PTFE (teflon) but I've never used it. Good luck with your build.

Hi Cogsy !
Why do not you use teflon ?

Corian is easier for me to get and I've heard Teflon is a little more difficult to machine, but I've never tried it. So far the corian has worked nicely for me but I might try teflon in the future.
