    Last thing I really ‘made’ was probably at Easter. Can’t take credit for the middle one…

    It’s not finished yet, but it will be a small retaining wall. Four courses high & 23 blocks long of hollow concrete block, rebar every other hole for strength. Prior to this I have never laid a brick or block nor knocked up mortar.

    The last thing I made from scratch is a bike stand, just got the design registered and about to go into production (comments welcome, pos or neg)

    Stand looks neat, how stable is it? Looks a little simmilar to Andy Stand (ie small, compact and holds from BB/Cranks area)

    nice, i guess you are getting the top bit water cut, very neat.

    comment – do you need a nyloc on the nut to stop it coming undone? maybe a stainless allen headed bolt would look nice, but then again the cost would be a lot more.

    one suggestion, it’s a pity it can’t break down a bit more so it costs less to post? maybe delete the welded strap which holds the two legs together, and replace with a cross tube spacer which is held with a bolt (going thru the spacer) similar to the top one, going thru holes in the main legs. This would make it pack down a bit more, but then again this might not be important to you.

    quite good idea though, it’s just the thing to throw in the back of the car so you can fettle your gears or whatever when you get there.

    The stand is quite stable enough for light fettling and very strong, I can stand on it (83kg). The bolt on production models will be allen headed and tapped into one side of the top bracket so it can be easily removed and the lower strap is fixed in place with philips screws, so the whole thing can be completely dismantled for transit or replacement of damaged/broken parts. Thanks for the input, it’s most welcome.

    A little spanner for adjusting my CCDB when I get round to fitting it to my new Mega. No sharp edges, and it only weighs 1g.

    A really simple one, first attempt at machining in 8 years or so…

    ‘alpine link’ fitted. looks nice and industrial! off to the alps in a couple of weeks to give it some hammer.

    i made this one on the manual machine. it is +5mm which gives about a degree slacker HA. if i make some more they will get the CNC treatment. i might try a +7.5mm or +10mm one too to see what happens.

    this marin frame has adjustable rear travel – see the qr on the rear shock mount. i put a hex bolt and spacer in the upper position, and this seems to stiffen up things noticeably.

    I made this last week:

    been playing around looking at sprockets and teeth profiles


    i was wondering about the sram fat/thin tooth thing. wonder if it would help on a normal 1×9 or 1×10 setup? or even, could it make a single speed set up wear better? i dunno.

    ignore the rough old machining, i was doing it by eye, just to see

    This! Took it for its maiden flight last night – and crashed it!

    Just need to make stronger motor mounts and it’ll be ready for testing again

    Nope, this is for my 8-speed kit – the Sturmey 8-speed uses a 20t sprocket…

    Standard tensioner is designed for a 16t sprocket, and the chainline is different too.

    Made this a year or so back.

    It was supposed to be a speed board for windsurfing based on the logic of floating water skis powered by a rig – it didn’t work.

    Then I tried all over again (what was that about the definition of insanity) this time larger scale as a sailing dinghy only I got someone else to build it for me so technically it was a design concept.

    Which also didn’t work, well it worked, but not like it was supposed to and it damn near gave me a hernia every time I tried to lift it.
