Aggggggh! floor to ceiling glass walls.
In the words of Gollum "we hates them, we hates them"
I once had to visit someone on one of the upper floors of an office in Melbourne that had them.   I got halfway to the edge and had to send someone else to ask the person I was visiting to come to the lift lobby in the middle of the building.

I've had a few of these motors but admittedley paid a cpl. of quid more for each.  Better to give the money to keep the local model shop open IMO.

Cracking service from Steve Webb Models ltd (Servoshop) this week.


I ordered five servos a couple of days ago, and here they are. Well-packaged, all fine!  :-))

Totally unrelated to modelling but a small FLIR infrared camera for my collection of tools for work.  Last used one over a decade ago (hired), this one fits in a pocket and whilst not cheap, bearable for my own company expenses, thanks to modern technology no need to spend 4 or 5 figures for what I'll be using it for! Can't wait to pick it up on Sunday night (had to get it delivered to a family member).


(Also bought a few modelling bits nowhere near as interesting)

....same here.  Pretty much 1 shop within a 4h driving radius. I pick things up when I see them or mail order from a high street shop rather than import on net.  Local to someone! LoL

Hi all, sort of modelling!  When occupied in my shed I listen to audio books, helps with the tinnitus.  These come from the public library, so far no problem.  But they are going over to MP3 CDs you get 9+ hours on one disc but not many CD players will play them and in my house only my Sony Walkman. 

I at last found a 'boombox that did play MP3 CDs which is another Sony, a CFD S70.  i chased it pricewise down from £75 to £55 and so I bought one today.  Seems to work fine a little tinny but otherwise very good.  That is my judgement but I have 2 hearing aids so not reliable.
regards

Tinnitus? Me too. Too many years listening to Motorhead and (at work) wearing headphones during my 20s and 30s.


Maybe a cheapy subwoofer would do you for more bass? There are plenty out there!

The Aldi bandsaw.

It's identical to the Scheppach HBS20 bandsaw as sold by Screwfix, only it's £30 cheaper, and comes with a three-year 'it's fallen to bits' Aldi warranty.

Setting up was 'interesting' - the instructions could be written much better - but it's straightforward.

I suspect I won't be buying thin wood planking material ever again. :-))

I've always liked the Nordkap Trawler and just got one for £150 because the box is damaged. Another kit on the shelf  :embarrassed:

I ordered an XT60 through connector with a JST tap off for my sound unit yesterday. £4 is not the cheapest option BUT fair play to NEXUS it arrived today  :-))

This week I bought a Startrite 403 bandsaw, 3 TB 16 Pillar Drills and an X 380 1000W Laser Cutter with a 900x600 bed size.  I just wish that I could take them home with me.

Didn't actually buy it today but was delivered today. Nicely made actually and a lot cheaper than if bought here - £15.95 delivered, from China of course.  %)

So very true and what the boss don't know won't hurt him.
