    Looks like the last thing Mick made was a well crafted bitchslap

    no no no its not like that its just maybe the way i write things, im not good at it and just write the words as they appear in my head

    Mick, apologies didn’t mean anything by it. I don’t have time to read every post on here but I have just gone back and read what you have written on the BTR Pinner thread and now it’s all clear. Best of luck.

    no need to apologise ….see above

    Only kidding, Mick. It was fairly obvious what you meant, and I probably shouldn’t have posted it.

    I can’t claim all of this, but I’m helping a friend make a custom gullwing sump for his 4.2 V8 Capri, as the current one is full of holes.

    Before..

    Nearly ready for mocking up, deciding where to put sump plug, figuring out how close the steering rack is, etc, etc.

    Pics of said Capri please!

    Cushions for wedding gifts

    Cool. How’d you do them?

    Rubbish photo but I made this here screen. Well, I made the whole screen and the knife, fork and spoons panels in the tops. The students on the course I teach on made the veneered panels in the other frames.

    The veneered panels are one of the first projects we get them doing on our furniture making course, and they can be changed so each year we’ll stick new ones in.

    The screen now lives in the college cafe(hence the cutlery theme) on show to everyone. It looks mint.

    ^^ It’s blocking the corridor (I hope that’s not a fire exit)…. πŸ™‚

    Nice veneer stuff, by the way!

    Of significant consequence?

    OS contour data (Terrain 50) taken into QGIS, contour lines coloured according to height using a calculated expression, exported as a pdf, tidied up in illustrator, printed onto fabric by Spoonflower and then sewn into a cushion.

    Thing for holding cable ferrules.

    bencooper, did you cannibalise a USE Sub suspension fork to make that parts holder?! I always thought they looked jazzy and a bike show roll around suggested that the anti-dive did actually work. Presumably though they were terribly made and no-one bought them?

    hucker – beautiful forks that did work! Problem with them was the price. Too limited a production run to make them affordable and competitive in the market. I had one and loved it.

    I’ve got a spare πŸ˜‰

    I’ve got a SUB on my MTB – it’s actually really good, the anti-dive works and it’s very stiff and plush. I really like it. It had two major problems – the RRP was Β£800 and USE didn’t make the air cartridge so when supplies ran out they couldn’t make any more.

    I’ve got a spare

    That is quite something.

    Β£800 for a fork seems almost par for the course for some these days. The new RockShox inverted fork is Β£1k+. Maybe the Sub was launched too early? The cost to produce now would inevitably have risen though.

    Another air spring could have been sourced I have no doubt. As such I don’t think this was a primary contributor to the cessation of production?

    Were/are these forks robust, able to withstand wear in the linkage (what sort of bearing is at each pivot?) and maintain sealing around the shaft for oil/air?

    Sorry for the slight thread hijack all!

    Well I haven’t broken mine yet πŸ˜€

    It was making an odd clunking sound a couple of years ago, took it to bits and the pushrod had dropped off the end of the air cartridge. Bunged that back on and it’s been fine ever since.

    The linkage has nylon top hat bushings not bearings – I can’t detect any slop at all in mine, they’re quite hefty, but would be pennies to swap if they wear. The main slider has a grease nipple on it, very easy to just bung some in there occasionally.

    I had a SUB, anti dive was great, fork seemed well made, but the Englund air assist cartridge I didn’t get on with at all. On successive stutter bumps it jacked up like there was too much compression. fettled and fettled, but couldn’t get it right.

    shame really as all other times it was really nice.

    The Wheelpro book is good. My attempts to even all the spoke tensions not so much, but it is very true… for now 😐

    Ridden past the picture’s viewpoint a number of times. Ridden around Bredon Hill a few times too.

    Probably?

    Honestly, I don’t know, sorry. I send my drawings to a local-ish company and they laser cut the steel parts then we finish them. The ally part was made here on the cnc router- I have one on my bike with ‘schralping teh gnar’ (replete with smelling pistake) cut into it πŸ˜†

    Has been approved (Prior Verified) by the SQA (Scottish Qualification Authority) for the carcass construction unit as part of the National 4/5 Practical Woodwork course.

    It is a bit disproportionate; the original model was smaller and more aesthetic but the SQA insisted that the housing joints be made across sections of no less than 100mm – so I just made everything 100mm wide…

    Malvern Rider, that’s ace. Very ‘Fighting Temeraire’ (without so much sea and boat)

    This:

    Oh Ye Whale!

    Skittering about above the surface
    Of the turmoiled ocean,
    The screeching gulls and clawed crabs and the daily fight for food
    Make use and company of the whale that
    Is resting on the surface, allowing pickage. Friendly and amused, perhaps,
    At the ructions and hurly-burly; adding it’s low, long
    And sonorous voice (partly heard and soon forgotten)
    To the underpinning of the hubbub.

    Beginning the long plan, the bulky presence dives,
    A black hole appears in the water as the fleshy island sinks,
    The maelstrom whirls where had been, a knotty bulk afloat.

    The chattering gulls cry out, startled and puzzled
    That the reliable, monstrous anchor is disappeared.
    Surprise turns to anxiety, the cloud of suspicion rains it’s poisoned seepage and the rootless
    Find themselves adrift as the watery typhoon
    Of the sudden absence resolves, and the assembly is left to the whims of wind and tide.

    Down below the fussing day, the whale
    Is journeying a long path, self-charted,
    Towards an end of it’s own devising.

    Steadily steadily steadily, the leviathan moves with deliberate
    Strokes that disturb only the waters of the depths alone,
    It’s passage disguised by the careful turn of it’s muscling,
    In the immensity of the abyss.

    Far above the tectonic plated underworld, the daily game of survival is played out
    In all it’s raucous, bloody, reaction to the moment…
    Day after exhausting day. Month after month. Year after year.

    Then once again, appear! O Ye Whale!
    Suddenly, inexorably, breaking the surface
    Into the roiling confusion, bringing calm to the waters
    Now sliding off it’s colossal presence.

    The circle is complete, the detective of the deep has returned, with news
    Mined by dint of deep dredge, from the seabed of being.

    All is well.
