Hi Canabus, does the rotary cutter come complete with a blade or is that an extra?

Hi roycv

It comes with a blade and you can get packs of ten as spares.
The blades are as good as the name brand ones.

Both my wife and I uses them.

The wife uses it for the charity quilts she makes (seven so far this year).
Also two for our first great grandchild arriving in September.

Hi Canabus, thanks for that as the wording of their advert I thought confusing. 

I visited the Salamanca market in 2019 the best and most varied market I have seen for many years.  I have a few souvenirs from there but a tourist with a baggage limit is somewhat hampered.  We did go on trips to the many islands, I do not think many people know they are there, and so varied.  All very well run, saw my first Wom Bat who ignored me, but seeing a duck billed platypus took rather a long time waiting, but worth it.

 Only disappointing thing was breakfast in the B & B's, I am sure very healthy but fruit and toast all the time?  On the other hand evening meals were good.  I can recommend Gummy shark and chips!
No matter I had a great time.
regards
Roy

I realised I was out of a couple of types of glue that I will need in the next few days, so ordered them from DeLuxe Materials online yesterday just after four pm. They arrived about ten minutes ago! Any faster and they'll be sending me stuff before I know I need it. That was quicker and probably cheaper than going to the nearest model shop (especially as they are still closed!)

I just received a kit I bought last Saturday, so whether I bought it this week or not depends on when your week starts! I spent many years working for the BBC, and the BBC week starts on a Saturday (check the Radio Times if you doubt me!).


Anyway, the kit which arrived is an Italeri 1:35 Vosper 72'6" MTB which I intend to motorise. I should be able to build a plastic kit on the desk in my lair upstairs without disturbing the wooden boats on the (ex kitchen) bench in the same room.

I tried buying this just as COVID struck and was refunded. They have only just re opened due to supplier difficulties.
Hopefully succeed this time

A stud detector and some PP3 batteries, also looking for a decent and inexpensive wall mounted horizontal murphy bed for my eldest, at 505 for the cheapest still looking, with a kit - I still don't think I could build one.

Just arrived 2 off 10 amp esc (without brake) cost 5.61 the two. 
These are the small ones a bit bigger than a postage stamp, with the 2 pin rx type connectors.  I reckon they are good for 4 amps and I have two in use with no problems.  You will need to buy some male and female connectors also cheap.

Just ordered one of each
https://www.oceanworkscale.com/product/z-peller-azimuth-thruster-z-drive-propulsion-combo-set-100mm-reinforce-nylon/


Using currency card Revolut $400 delivered was 309

Do you have a platform in mind for these, or was it just an impulse purchase, "they'll come in useful on something"?

Hi Greg I have an Orion Stevns Arctic same as Butts that I mothballed due to the bow being so incorrect, so I might just make something fictitious or I have a Maltby hull also

I certainly am not a stud canabus, strange terminology for the battens inside a plasterboard dividing wall - me I call the nails that fix the plasterboard as the studs not the actual wooden battens.


I need to get my old PC up and running for the AutoCAD (if it still on there - I don't think it is - but I have several drives that might have it on, the youngest screwed up the pc i think it was last year), have an idea for a Murphy bed to fit the eldest's bedroom as a standard one does not fit - being too long.

Not strange terminology at all. A plasterboard wall is also known as a studwork wall so the wood bits are the studwork, made up of studs. The nails are just that, plasterboard nails.

Studs are the vertical posts, top and bottom plates fix to (ceiling) (floor) Noggins are intermediate horizontal plates, normally behind plasterboard joints.
Personally I prefer plasterboard screws rather than nails.   Easier to remove when you find you have made a mistake   %%

Not a chippy, so not accustomed to the correct terminology, was an office wally in air conveying manufacturing doing the paperwork and drawings, now, just customer services on furlough, though I do remember the term Noggins  O0

I'm not a chippy either, except with broken bones maybe. I think that noggins are the shorter horizontal pieces of wood that tie the vertical studs together. I think..........
