  1. Past hour
  2. Basically thats scuba gear. Yr regulator in yr mouth will pressurise yr lungs as much as you can suck. Come to Essex if the hand thing still doesnt make sense 😉 K
  3. when you think about the morbid last hours of someone dying from C-19 it is like drowning in their own mucus - oxygen starvation, then heart and kidney decline and failure. Soo it occured to me a novel high tech cure would be to get the blood out of the patient through a cannula and into an artificial lung that does the gas exchange instead of the lungs, preferably a device that could work of power tool batteries so the patient could walk about. Not quite so far fetched, but an encouraging developement in the news today 'A non-invasive breathing aid that can help to keep coronavirus patients from needing intensive care has been developed and approved in a matter of a few days. The device, known as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), was created by a partnership between the Mercedes Formula One team, University College London (UCL) and University College London Hospital (UCLH). CPAP devices work by pushing a mix of oxygen and air into the mouth and nose at a continuous rate, thereby increasing the amount of oxygen that gets into the lungs. They bridge the gap between an oxygen mask and the need for full mechanical ventilation, during which the patient must be sedated.' PS last time I saw someone spitting on their hand cant remember the name of the film..
  4. That doesn't sound too good at all! Let's hope the hospital workers get some much needed appropriate PPE supplies asap.
  5. Started again, after checking the play in crank and piston. Ensured the arrow on the piston was pointing towards the exhaust. Moved from island to table as the kids are doing their art lesson today. Now just waiting on parts. Hoses mainly, and an air filter, lets see when they’ll arrive. Gotta build something to pressure test the crank seals, I have rubber sheet to seal things up, need some plate to screw it all down. Can you pressure test through the spark plug opening? As I could cobble an old spark plug in to an adapter and block cylinder inlet and outlet. Keep the cylinder at BDC(?) and let the pressure build, 7psi I believe
  6. Sorry the two buds above I believe are called buckeye in this post from the wood, the pictures of the tree relate to the first post.
  7. The P30 is the top of my wish list but it doesn’t come cheap. the tractor is 1.5ton and the dealer is suggesting the 210kg weight. If the knocker is grounded is it quite stable, does much energy rattle through the tractor?
  8. Went with the 550xp mk2. George Carr in Bristol delivered it this morning. Along with some Aspen2 - first time using that. Thanks for all the input. looks like a nice saw, bit bigger bodied than my 346xp but feels nicely balanced. Can't wait to have a go with it. Have a load of Ash and Sycamore to process. Are there any guides to saw maintenance on this site? If I'm being honest I probably didn't look after the 346 very well. Cheers Dave
  9. Hence a good strong mouthwash, you can wipe yr arse on that toilet paper nonsense 😋 k
  10. I think 120. Yes it's got the telescopic mast will bang in 10ft posts. It weighs in at around 400kg alltogethdr
  11. tbh i wouldn't know as never used a 462...... yet!!
  12. So you did, I raced in before I'd read all the posts.
  13. @kevinjohnsonmbe got impression you were playing jengha with yr logstack and thought it was only time before you got to the 'Psycho' bit, apologise fr the leap of creative posting that, that was Kev.. K
  14. Yip, just as Diff and I just mentioned.
  15. He was probably found not guilty because he was, err, not guilty.
  16. Is that with the 180kg weight? I think they start doing that model with 120kg. But surprising the difference another 60kg makes. It’s not all about weight, drop height is important too.i think the p30 contractor model also has a telescopic mast to increase drop height on strainers etc
  17. The pictures below show buds from local wood which is being managed at present. I believe they are also horse chestnut, below are slightly better pictures.
  18. Today
  19. The NHS needs PPE, Can you help? The NHS has appealed for protective equipment for staff on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic. NHS suppliers are asking DIY stores to donate visors and glasses to hospital staff, amid concern that rising numbers of medics are falling ill after exposure to coronavirus. The Arboricultural Association would like to appeal to any arboriculture businesses to donate whatever they can in the way of suitable PPE to their local hospitals. Last week the Health Care Supply Association tweeted: Suitable protective glasses and any polycarbonate clear face visors can be sent to your local hospital, or if you have a large amount of stock you’d like to donate you can email: suppliers@supplychain.nhs.uk Thank you to Peter Barton, who suggested this idea after receiving an AA Coronavirus email newsletter last week.

  21. Well first day had a job put on hold until further notice..job was to reduce conifers for Hasall Construction Ltd who are based in Bath..they have shut there site down in Droitwich..but I just wanted to give them a shout because they have agreed to pay me the full amount and obviously do the job when possible which could be god know when so fair play to them for paying now as they didn’t need to do that.👍
  22. Yeah, jus google that exact question and there’ll be tons of tutorials and code templates.

    Hi I am looking for some free resources to help me create my back garden please ☺️🌿
  24. Funnily enough he's never bothered me. I can put up with him longer that Sturgeon or Steptoe thats for sure. But I completely agree with this 'rape' nonsense. Its been used in this instance to discredit him, Im glad he's been absolved, even if he is an arsehole.
  25. When time and money are no barrier, these things are a useful distraction. For the time being, I doubt the courses / exams will be deliverable and in any case, the majority of the materiel is already open source and freely available. It's a 'nice to' but not getting anywhere near the top of the list for me at the moment.
  26. Odd..... Wasn't aware of what the reference might be so looked it up.... Even oddererer, still no clearer?
