    I expect to see you chatting to George Dawes on telly sometime soon Phil.

    He’s a baby? Do you mean George Clark?

    did they survive BEar?

    It did prevent freezing, mostly, but one tadpole baby was irreversibly stuck to the bubble-wrap and it felt like
    an unnecessarily complicated solution, so last night I went with my original thought of just “stick a B&Q bucket over it and place a brick on top” and I have to say that was much better idea.

    Made a rough and ready manual machine with my daughter today.

    I was going to buy the timber I needed but decided to make it out of offcuts I had in the garage including some skirting board, a bit of MDF and some rough sawn 4×2.

    Is it perfect? No. Is it twice as good because my daughter made most of the cuts with a handsaw drilled most of the pilot holes, countersunk the screws and screwed the screws in. YES!

    It will give me that warm fuzzy feeling each time I use it. I’m sure I still won’t be able to manual but it was a fun afternoon 🙂

    @Rich_s to be honest the measurements are a result of what I had lying around ‘just in case’ in the garage. I probably would have gone wider on the wings and used a bit of 6×2 for the base and the upright but we made it up as we went along.

    I did watch some videos on YouTube for inspiration and a lot of them have a long base. The one that caught my eye was this one from Kyle Warner as his was more compact and still seemed to work OK.

    This ramp/hump thing for me on my trials bike and my 4yo on his balance bike. Made from old some pallets that roofing tiles came on I was offered. Fun taking the nails out. Wasn’t as simple a project as I first thought, took longer than I hoped. Stable for regular rolling over but not so much when load comes from other directions.

    @Lanky
    What exactly is a ‘manual machine’ Im a bit lost as to it’s function. I must have missed the ‘manual’ thread.
