    Hi folks, I get the gas forge up on its stand, change the gas burner orientation to make it more compact, and get it running in order to heat and flat bend some strip steel. Then I get the new boiler flue fitted and fit a new thermostat so it will self regulate and shut down if it gets too hot...

    Hi folks, A very short week of modifying an inherited partly made(?) stand to suit my very heavy gas forge, so thatI can use it anywhere in the shop, as opposed to having to carry it to some level surface and set it up to use! Only got a couple of days in before life overtook me, but much was...

    Hi folks, I get the boiler back together, reinstalled, but just get started on the flue and run out of Mig gas, so its on to some other joblets to fill in!

    Hi Folks,So last week I got the heat exchanger finished, only to find that when I offered it up into position, the fan was going to hit the front door as it opened, so I tore poor old K9 to pieces again and rebuilt it with the fan in line with the body instead of hanging out the bottom...

    Hi Folks,A varied week in which the heat exchanger is completer, the fault on the rise and fall column from last week is found, and in order to get the old bench in the Blacksmiths shop removed, I make and fit some metal racks to the wall to store my vast collection of interesting bits of metal...

    Thanks Graham! I am over the worst but still coughing a bit, though it is getting better! Refurbing lathes is a matter of pulling them to bits, painting them, and then repairing all the broken bits as you put them back together. Lathes and milling machines were made on lathes and milling...

I attempt a fix on a linear acutator in a rise and fall column for a piece of opticians equipment, and then on to the workshop heating. I find all the plumbing bits I need and build the heat exchanger for the ducted air heating...

    Hi Folks, Been so busy this week but didn't actually get much workshop time in as the recent stress over the Rats and the leaky roof (also rats) has set off my old gippy digestion ailment, which means the only thing I want to do this week was curl up somewhere nice and warm and come out in...
