I ordered a 6V battery and a 10A fuse holder for the old 2 smoke. Two separate eBay tat sellers but both turned up today Smile

Shame I had to work this evening Sad

Yes, preset to 0 degrees - RC8 has stacked lamps so no need to alter as they both point dead ahead. I think the cut off is better than halogen.

Finishing it up tomorrow.

Inverter welder, I was looking at them in local stores earlier in the year, and almost bought a similar one for about 200

https://www.banggood.com/220V-Portable-MMA-ARC-Welder-Welding-Machine-Inverter-with-5Pcs-Welding-Rods-p-1274323.html

I already have a massive 1970s Pickhill, this is for lighter jobs where it needs to run on an extension lead most likely.

How can Banggood send a 2kg welder to the UK for 41 - not the one I went for but their cheapest.

Dunno how they do it but a few things: Treat it like a tray of eggs. No don't eat it but just be gentle how it's moved around. They're basically filled with circuit boards and rough handling could damage it. Keep it in a hard case or cover with a dust sheet when not in use - keeps it dry and dust free.
I bought one 4 years ago at JTF in the UK for 50. A cheapo radio-sized unit and it soon became a favourite. I've looked after it and it's still going strong. I can weld thin metal at 15 amps..
If yours arrives in working order you'll love it.

I've spotted Machine Mart selling more and more lifetime gear. I recently bought some larger-sized spanners and the quality is very good.

10W50 engine oil for my big single. It's the first time I'm trying such oil blend.

I normally used to go for 20W50 for air cooled 4 strokes, but I also do remember it was harder to cold start the engine with 20Wxx, so will see about this blend. 10W40 gets too thin in the hot summer weather we get here.

... oh, and a new stator (from Britain!), oil filter, front forks repair kit (seals and all that), steering bearings, gasket paper for the stator cover ... the Christmas came early this year.

I probably need to have an academic discussion about oil because its all Greek to me.

The only thing I seem to comprehend is that I have an old engine.
And that in the summer it needs different "weight" oil than in the winter.

I was first introduced to 20W50 oil when I had my first motorcycle (GPz550, air cooled 4 cylinder, four stroke). Using thicker oil, I reduced the oil consumption significantly and also quieten the engine when hot. Worth mentioning, we do get 35+C summers here (much higher in direct sunlight, obviously). With ''standard'' 10W40 the oil consumption was significantly higher and the engine noiser the hotter it got. I had the bike maybe 10 years ago and even back then it was already 22+ years old, after who knows how many owners and miles.

For me 20W50 made starting the engine in spring (cold) rather difficult, plus it can't be good for the oil pump to move melasis around (well, the service manual said it was alright to use such oil). That's why I'm gonna try 10W50 in the XBR engine.

What do those numbers mean? The viscosity at a given temperature...

I can't imagine you need a drain with a netting floor. Shocked

Some new Karma soap from Lush Wub and some new flavoured one obviously out for the Halloween crowd, in the shape of a ghost but smells wonderfully lemony/citrussy (because bergamot)

And also just enough fancy noms* from Marks & Spencer to see me through until , ermmm ... some distant moment during the weekend when I run out of milk and loopaper again.




*Fucking "Palmiers" !!
Amazing things: fancy pastry with sugar on.
Fabulous! Wub

I see what you did and I like it. Smile

I do need to re-arrange but that's more a cable management thing.
The bread n butter instruments and other outboard gear are wired to a patchbay so workflow isn't an issue. Space...well I have another room where amps n cabs live. Wheel 'em in wheel 'em out.

Next on my list is a 335 and a ribbon mic oh and my old mixer is still playing up..then eventually a bigger audio interface and another patchbay. A clean Fender amp like the Princeton would be useful. Always on the lookout for interesting guitar pedals.
A poly synth (the Minilogue caught my eye).
Few more bits for the modular.

Yep should be dead by the time I get that lot.

Or
I could sell everything and do it all on a MacBook with controller keyboard and be forever updating software and lamenting the loss of old programs that are no longer supported.

The Space Echo has been yearned for ever since my old band had the 301 in the 80s.
Like a pig in muck I am.

Do you ever yearn to just get out there and play? I.e., miss the band thing? I know you do the annual jam, but doesn't that just leave you wanting more?

Why not take your compositions to the masses half a dozen pissed-up folks down the pub? Smile (Is there much of a music scene round where you live?)

I wouldn't dismiss playing live again, technical wise it would be one hellova challenge seeing as I play everything. Me playing to my own backing tracks could be a solution.

It's a hassle I don't miss and being out of the loop for so long (talking like I was a pro muso. Laughing ..I/we were never that) I don't want to be boo'd at. Bit different when you're young and headstrong.

I've missed that bus Nick....But as I said if by some miracle I was asked to do say a radio session (I submit songs to an unsigned artist thingy) I'd do it. Or if by another miracle one of my gigging social meeja chums asked me, I'd turn up.

I jam with some others as well as the Solstice crew but not for a paying audience. Probably four times a year (max) with a full band and me n a mate still jam on a semi-regular basis.

In short I've never really had the yearning for the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd. Smile


Aye the Gibbo 335, or 339 which I haven't tried yet.
Be a while before I save up for one of those.
