Some progress is made with projects, and I almost finish making a table/stand for the J&S bench centres, mainly so I can get them off the bench and onto a stand where they can be used! I WILL do better next week, At least its nice...

    This week I complete the insukation on the outside flue, with good results, do repairs on a couple of compressors and a Nifisk vac, and finaly, on Friday, get back to the pipe bender. My new years resolution is going to be, "I must start earlier and get more done. Thanks for watching, send me a...

    Right Steamchick, I will answer last first! I do not have the right regulator for propane on the brazing hearth, and was using an adjustable one, with the result that I was pushing far too much gas into the torch, and getting loads of CO instead of heat, hence the CO alarm going off! I do have...

    A weird assortment of oddments and curios! Insulation on the flue outside, fitting the flue injector (finally!) Collet chucks, oddball screws to identify, and then.....HA HAR! Plunder me hearties! My mate from across the road brought me a final pile of clearout from his sheds, as he has a new...

    Hi Richard, it is a rocket stove, inside a warm air space heater! What actually comes out of the flue outside is mainly water vapour, but it looks like smoke as it is condensing as it hits the cool air. The more of the flue that is insulated, the better it draws, and the hotter the gases stay as...

    this week I get the Heater flue insulated in an effort to reduce my (not very) smoky woodburner flue, do some repairs to a couple of wooden cases for punches and tooling, and finish the milling on the bender former, which means that the first job on the Harrison with vertical head is a sucess...

    Yes, I was having a look last night! We also have several UK stockists of Indian and Chinese tooling in the UK if you can't wait the 2 to 3 weeks it takes to get here, though that was improving till Covid kicked in!, My recently purchased MT2 lathe test bar is made in India, and is well within...

    Another week of progress on the milling machine, you come to a point where it is more effective to crack on with making a machine universally usable rather than push forward with the job in hand and accept the limitations of tooling you can't use because of vital component shortages, Which is...

    Some interesting bits and peices as I grasshopper around the workshop on my usual plate spinning act, very pleased with the way the drawbar turned out, and the vertical head fit up is all but completed. Although the brazing hearth could not produce quite enough heat to braze it, having it...

    I am easily sidetracked, especially if things are proving frustrating, it is sometimes a good idea to put the job down and do something else untill you get the inspiration back. Sometimes however, you find that you need to use something that you have, and have rebuilt.........but didnt quite...

    Yes, you are quite right, and I didn't mention it! what I do is fit one half of the tyre, fit the tube, inflate it without the valve in till it pushes the outer bead away from the wheel, and you can see the tube all round, and check it is not twisted, then let it down again and fit the second...

    A good week is when I set out to do something and actually do it! A blow by blow account of building a bender stand, with the final fitting of the tractor tyres thrown in for good measure, the whole thing seasoned with a couple of my "top tips" (LOL) Like, subscribe, enjoy, share, and thanks to...

    As they say in Yorkshire, this weeks video is "Neether nowt ner summat" It has been an unsettling experiecne watching my eldest who has Apergers syndrome, start university at York, thankfully, although she was very nervous about going, as soon as we arrived, and she met the people she had been...

    I start the week baffled by a non running engine, find the fault (eventually) and now it runs every time! It is not right yet, but a lot can happen when a carburettor is stood empty for 20 years! I finish off with some boring on the lathe, as the next 2cv engine job is to make the exhaust pipes...

    Yes folks, engine back in and almost running, and for once it almost all goes smoothly. It is a good thing that I did go this far into the engine, because if I hadn't, the corroded oil cooler and oil feed pipes would have ensured that the engine had a life of about 20 minutes! It will run early...

    Trials and tragedies, the ups and downs of another week in my workshop! The 2CV engine goes back together, the broken exhaust manifold which started this sorry tale gets welded, and the whole project shudders slowly forwards. Laugh, cry, subscribe, comment, but thanks for watching, and I hope...

    I wouldn't have a LHD one unless I wanted to tour the continent, but they do grow on you! when I did garage repairs at my workshop in the seventies, I used to service a couple of 2cv's for customers, and generally thought them to be a PITA, but then I got to drive one for 60 miles, and it was...

    Victory at last! I finish making the pushrod tubes and the retainers, and get them fitted, more parts arrive, and the barrels and pistons go back on! She is going back together. Soon I will be able to refit the broken exhaust manifold and weld the pipe up, thus fixing the reason that all this...
