  1. So you are saying those who die wont need to be notifiable cases? But surely with the numbers being reported of people we are told have Covid-19 as 99% of them wont die shouldnt there be many more than 50 people recorded in week 51 across the UK? buddsy
  2. Ok genuine question here. Id be grateful if anyone in the know could answer for me as I feel Im being dumb not understanding the information Im being presented with. If I look through my local hospital it list the people who have died from and have been tested positive for Covid-19. Basically every day this month 1 or 2 people per day (I know most are in their later years and have existing medical conditions but leaving that can of worms aside for now) Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital Covid-19 Deaths So Covid-19 is a notifiable disease and is listed
  3. I have seen dremmals/air die grinders used in lathe tool posts to internally grind bores. buddsy
  4. Yes its way past time it was dueled. Obviously this is one sticking point but if Yarmouth became a major sea port once more this would help the cost to build. One good thing is land isnt in short supply along the way. buddsy
  5. Close by us in Norwich we have Great Yarmouth. They recently invested in a new outer harbor. When I was a kid in the 80s the Norfolk line lorries would often been seen and as Ive been told by my Dutch relatives they linked Yarmouth and the Netherlands. I dont understand why this is not happening again? Every time there is something upsetting the French Fishermen they seem to block ports with impunity. The ability to go around them into the Netherlands I would think would be beneficial not only to us but to the Dutch who have always seemed to be friendly to us in my experience.
  6. Hi Rick I have a cylindrical grinder and when I started out in engineering we often would turn parts and leave material on for grinding. Ive got a pretty decent cnc lathe which I can hit tolerances I couldn't achieve as consistently on my old Colchester Lathes. Surface finish too is very fine. We still grind some items but not very often these days. I aimed at making my piston 0.01mm bigger than my existing to allow to polish the surface. Used a bit of P600 then P1000 then a bit of the old scotch bright. When thinking about what size to make the new pistons although I didnt want them
  7. Ive just been refurbishing mine. I wanted to get some new stainless steel pistons as my old ones had corroded a bit and caused a sticking brake. I couldnt find anyone selling them. Sillilar ones not non that would suit. So Ive just machined a pair up. buddsy
  8. ??? In other news week 51 saw 50 cases of Covid-19 across the UK Down from 181 cases the week before. buddsy
  9. Mine was loud and whiny but turned out being the alternator bearings buggered. buddsy
  10. Ive said it many times I love Europe. I love the differences between our countries. I love our diversity. The same reason Im not a fan of Benidorm (England on sea) but love Valencia. This is what makes trade interesting and great We are all friends but the EU in my opinion is Germany wanting to have its cake an eat it. oh well take care everyone where ever you are from and what opinion you hold. Happy Xmas to you all. love and peace buddsy
  11. I agree thats such a classy colour. I had once thought about going copper but have gone off that a bit. But this looks a nice mix of the copper & red Ive always loved red sports cars. Recently I had considered changing to an Elise or Exige. I think Fire red which looks a similar colour was my preference. buddsy

  20. I heard Boris during his address say "we need to protect the NHS as the NHS has always been there for us". I just thought well it hasn’t been since Feb for anyone who has had their life saving care cancelled. The NHS is a very emotive subject. You dare say anything bad about it or the nurses and you get crucified. Boris uses this very fact to get people to make choices based on emotion rather than fact. The same tactic has been used with the face’s not about you it’s about other people. "What you don’t care if you infect granny and she dies." buddsy
  21. Welcome to the forum! This will be epic when done! Red ones are the best by the way! 🙂 buddsy
  22. Welcome to the forum that looks stunning! buddsy
  23. Ive written to my MPs more in the last few weeks than I ever have in my life! Just written to tell them I do not consent to any further lockdown asking them to vote against it when they vote on Wednesday. Also that I switched to Nigel Farage when they were under Theresa May and it looks like I will be returning to his new party as he stands against our tyrannical government. buddsy
