      Week 3 of lockdown, I have not been to the workshop at all, may go next week, see how it goes. This is a little look round our back garden showing my rustic brickwork and a garden tour narrated by my elcest, including a brief glimpse of Catherine, my wife, and emily, my youngest, brief because they refused to be filmed!. Warning, contasins gratuitous pressure washer action!

          Week 5 draws to a close, and I have not been to the workshop, so here is a tale of the problems I am having finding the fault on the TIG, problems caused in part by the inadequate "schematic", a poor excuse for a wiring diagram

                    I'll try to curb it! 🤔 As you can probably tell, there is no rehearsal, and no script, what you get is pure stream of consciousness! To put it another way, I make it up as I go along!
                    Thanks for the comment

                        This week I rebuild the wire feed tensioner on the Socome mig welder, and fit the Eurotorch conversion kit I got from Techarc. Unfortunately the bearings which I need for it did not come till late Friday, so I will be fitting them and testing the welder next week. It worked out very well! please subscribe, like, comment and enjoy!

                          This week I finish the wire feed, test the welder, remove, repair and refit the lid, discover a problem on the Colchester, and we are nearly ready for paint! I bought a MT3 test bar from RDG, which came Friday, no casters yet, but I hope they will come over the weekend, Like, comment, and please subscribe, but above all, enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

                                Hi all,


                                This week I get the test bar into the colchester lathe to check the headstock alignment, and also check the Covmac lathe. Some finishing off on the Socome welder, and then onto the Toro wheelhors tractor to continue the new transmission set up, , Friday afternoon, went to help Keith do a tip run and didn't get home till 8-00, hence this video being uploaded on Saturday! I'll explain the disaster next week!
