    Broadband speed

    Hi Does anyone out there know of a link to an ACCURATE online speedchecker? I know of three and the results are so wildly different I don't believe any of them. Within 30 seconds I can get from .65 on one to 1.9 on another and the third doesn't agree with either. Roy.

    Nemett 15cc 4 stroke engine.

    Hi people, well I've finally bitten the bullet and started building this engine. this won't be a blow by blow account, rather a show and tell as I (hopefully) finish a part.

    small mod on a chester comet lathe.
