Are the mini eggs components required for the TARGET project?
How do you wire and control them  %%

  I have a cunning plan . Having told Mrs B that I am thinking of a new hobby she has concluded that it is music and I am learning to play the xylophone ! Must get an appropriate C D to play on the PC to keep the illusion going.


 I'm still open to guesses

Uh Oh the link's not working Andy and I really need a new filter as I've caned the old one.  Honestly the best bit of marriage saving kit that I've ever bought.  Keeps the home dust free and fits on every power tool I own :)

Yep that worked and one's ordered -  the sanding blocks seem pretty good and should save a lot of mess.  Let me know how you rate them when you get one :)  The hose plugs straight into the Bosch Gas once you remove the standard hose.  It couldn't be easier  :-))

I already vac my large expanse of decking with it  :-))  so this will be easier

Definately can't survive without coffee these days ok2


I've bought some paint, some couplings, and a hull off ebay of a 1/100 scale German Braunschweig class Corvette. Something a bit different and some of the suggestions provided by the seller may change my mind of wat it'll build into (a possible what-if) but we will see. I bought some plans of HMS Warrior but not the full set as they were only the first three drawings on Mowell's model from the 1980s. Might find the remainng six one day.

Interesting Nick  and reminds me I need a coupling for my 40mm bow thruster 30MM props. A 3mm shaft but I have no idea what to drive it with and no manufacturer recommendations of RPM  %)  How many motors can I go through before getting it right  %%
I'm thinking brushless 28mm ish? around 850kv so I can tune it up or down with LiPo voltage


EDIT
perhaps?

A 3/8th extension bar and a set of adapters, so that I can use various sizes of sockets on my even longer extension bars. (Principally to remove very tight bolt holding A/C compressor on the Jag)

Sorry, the only thing the new extension will do is allow that full torque to be applied & I bet she will shear off at the head  {-) 


Score....Jag= +4, .......LB= -3

Well Derek, when it did eventually, go, it with an almighty crack, and I did indeed think something had given way but it was alright. It was at the back of the compressor and was holding the plate which in turn held the two large diameter hoses in position on the compressor. Whoever had torque that blessed thing up did far too good a job of it!
It was the only way that I could do it as well without dismantling the fuel rail and all the other gubbins in the valley.

So, me 5 , Jag/compressor Now't
