What is the last thing you made? (pics pls)
My off road / road commuter frame,
Columbus steel, cast lugs, brass brazed, in the garage with an oxy/propane setup.
After a disaster with the down tube, I had to chop off half the head tube / down tube lug and fillet braze it on. It looks like the downtube is held on with chewing gum!!Posted 4 years ago
Painted with rattle cans, it looks OK, but I dont expect it too last…
Oh, and I also recorded, produced, mixed and mastered this London Grammar cover with my friend singing:Posted 4 years agokayak23Subscriber
I bought a little MP3 speaker kit from Kitronik as a little test project.
Really cool little kit with a pcb which you just solder everything to following the instructions, and it cost under £6!
I had this old Ammunition box and so decided to mount it in there. Little Birch-Ply speaker surrounds and a bullet for the external volume knob.
It runs off a 9v batter, or can be plugged into a DC adaptor.

Had a slight shock after lifting our carpet – discovered the stairs were riddled with woodworm on top of being completely rotten near the base. Mostly they were being held together with plasterboard.
The stairs were probably the 1812 originals. The base of the old strings was simply resting on a brick tile laid on an open area of dirt. The dirt had been busy letting in moisture to the underside of the stairs (which had been sealed quite recently with some plasterboard).
An emergency carpentry session was called for, along with having to fill in the dirt patch with cement to match the rest of the ground floor (which is about as flat as the austrian alps).Posted 4 years ago
