    I made a large pile of wood in my secondary wood store. This is all for next winter.

    I trust this meets STW wood store approval.

    And I tell you what, don’t bother with gym’s or anything silly like that. Just chop a load of wood up with a hand saw and a big maul. I am looking BUFF!

    Last thing I made was this video of the thing I made before that, which was setting up this whole exhibition, which features the thing I made before that, which was a Zoetrope (spinning picture animation thingy…)

    Finally had a chance to machine my new head-tube badge. Machined out of aluminium tube with the bore sized to fit the heat-tube. Should be a snug fit..

    Inspired by a very similar chain guide I remember seeing on here a good year or so ago and motivated by my recent budget conversion to 1×9 from SS and having the chain drop off the chainring a couple of times (no, not a N/W one!) on the more bumpy descents and, rather shocked at the price and bulk of the guides available, I thought I’d see if my budget Heath Robinson chain guide could work…

    A 28.6 DMR clamp, a 50mm M5 button head S/S bolt and nylon bits courtesy of a sanitary ware fixing kit πŸ˜€

    Still fettling with its height above the chain and given that it derails when in the smaller cogs at the back, I’m putting up with the chain rub when in the lower speed cogs at the back, otherwise, no rub no matter what gear I’m in and the chain will still drop on really rough fast ground.

    Or am I wasting my time with this set up and look to a ‘proper’ chain guide?

    I made 41 pints of Mexican lager. I’m getting a bit nifty at bottling nowadays. No mess at all and I had the whole lot from primary barrel to primed and capped bottle in less than an hour.

    Made myself a wheel truing jig today.
    Watched a video about truing by Ed Haythornthwaite out of Dirt and had a go.
    My rear flow rim is pretty borked to be honest but I bought it back to an acceptable wobble πŸ™‚
    Tension could be a bit off mind.

    Finally finished the strimmer-outboard…

    River Trials went well

    Sea Trials also a success

    Not quite fine art furniture, but I knocked up some racks for my olympic plates, as I was fed up with having them in a pile on the floor…

    mikeyd – that’s superb. Does the exhaust silencer work?

    Have you experimented with the prop shape or just bought something off the shelf?

    reminds me of a boat I took in Thailand – powered by a 2litre petrol car engine ! 😯

    Squat Stand

    Although if I was buying again, I’d probably get one of these: http://www.gymratz.co.uk/bodysolid-gpr370

    As it saves having to adjust the height of the thing between squatting and bench pressing, which is a bit of a pain….

    Stoner,

    Yeah the exhaust into the water worked a treat for this engine, very loud when it skips out of the water though! (2stroke which like a bit of back pressure).

    However the ‘newest’ version is a 4-stroke which didn’t like the restricted exhaust very much, so I’ve moved it to be above water, interestingly with no noticeable noise increase.

    These strimmer engines are used a lot in model boats, so there are a few specially designed props for them – i.e. props for very high revving low torque engines.

    Cruises at around 5/6mph with 3 adults and 1/3 throttle, does 4-5km on 0.5Litres of fuel.

    Funnily enough I was inspired by the Thai riverboats, – went on loads as a kid.

    sounds like a whisk πŸ™‚

    excellent project, nice one.

    New bush for shock. Made it from stupidly expensive colsibro bronze as I couldn’t wait to order a pu one. New shock from crc about as cheap as a service!

    Wooden plane as a present for todler nephew – actually made it in the last few lessons of the summer term as we wound down for the holiday:

    Have had a larger biplane version ‘prior verified’ by the SQA (Scottish exam board) as assessment material for N4/5 Practical Craft Skills; a bit of a professional tick in the box and should help toward ‘Professional Update’…

    First contribution to this thread some awe inspiring work so far, here goes with my humble effort.
    Built this for my Lad, inspired by Atomic Zombie & Leaux Racing & Rip Rider 360

    Yes decking needs staining and a comfortable seat to sort out.

    Slippery slope you’ve started there Cheviots – making bikes for your kids just gets more expensive πŸ™‚

    Photos are from trial build – just got it back from powder coat so is now very very yellow.

    Youngest’s first 26er. Bigger wheels, sus forks and disc brakes but still 1lb lighter than his old rigid Islabike 24″

    Nowt wrong with your spin cycle – just noticed the 8-ball steering castor thingy. I’ve got to build a kids team pedal car for a race next summer – that will be much more atomic zombie πŸ™‚

    Matt – some of your kids bikes were part inspiration for it. Pics later – including full MSCG setup (mick’s standard chain guide)

    My attempt at filework on the spine leaves something to be desired. Hopefully better net time!

    Not really a serious thing yet, but got myself a pantograph engraving machine and been experimenting with it:
