Just have to try and get the bat boat or let him design one (loads of guns and missiles)and take it from there.both my grand kids like a play in the workshop /shed granddaughter has an affinity for glue in her hair
As I was in hospital over the festive season we decided to combine Burns night and Christmas, so haggis for Christmas dinner better than turkey anyway, and presents this morning wife gave me a ceramic picture by a talented artist who just happens to be my younger brother .Lang may yer lums reek. Cheers Marky
Getting home at last ,now just have to wait until the start of March for the results ,it's looking very positive and the good lady said I can get a new hut/workshop to keep me out of mischief. Cheers Marky😀
Things are going well with the radiotherapy ,spend most of the day travelling to hospital,treatment then back home again and sleeping. so not much happening on the boat building front, still only 4 more days to go 😁.Cheers Marky
Could you make a template of the deck marking the planning on it ,then working from the centre or outer edge trim off the first plank put the template back on, and scribe or draw 1st line then trim to 2nd line repeat until all the planning is done.
Hi Doug , Radio therapy for the next 40 days at least i get the weekends off ,not much time for anything else ,up get ready -go to hospital -treatment - home again its pretty tiring but needs must 👍 at least the eyebrows have grown back 😁
Spoke with the H&S Adviser at the University he said that disposable masks are no good for Styrene fumes you would need a filter type like 3M 6051,he also said if your allergic to handling it best to use Black Nitrile gloves as used by tattooists and to sook the fumes off with a vacuum or extractor.👍
If he was heating /melting the brass it could be zinc fumes which if inhaled or ingested can give galvanic poisoning which can give flu type symptoms and the need to stay close to the toilet. that's why if your brazing always do it in a well ventilated area . Cheers marky
dont know if this is a sales pitch to make them sound sexy as the element is used on things like the space shuttle and missile technology its also used in industrial spotwelder electrodes where it is alloyed with copper ,it is a carcinogenic and used to be called sweet metal due to the sweet taste if injected through taste ,personally I would just avoid it and purchase normal brass props .cheers Marky
