  • Can't read the language, but the pictures...

    I came across a whole slew of personal websites from Japan and elsewhere.
    These are homemachineshop oriented.
    I've just been clicking on any characters that highlight when my mouse moves over them.
    Here's one below.
    Pick through the lines on the far left that run all the way down the page.
    There are some english words to help identify some of the links.

    They really use some imagination on some of those projects. I am very impressed that he built his own boring bar. If it was in english, it would be really great.

            Bill we are all the same.
            This board and may more like it are mainly populated by people from the US with a few Brits and the odd European, Oh and Alistair

            I think this is because the US 'found' computers and the internet long before others.
            I don't think age has a lot to do with it as many on this board are well past it in facr that's a compliment in itselt to tenacity to understand new things.
            Communication also has a lot to do with it.
            Many people until they have visited the Staes just can't understand the distances involved.

            I have just been to the Nothern Model Engineering Exhibition at Harrogate in the UK, spread over 3 day, Friday to Sunday it was packed, I mean elbow shoving packed.
            The Midlands one in October spread over 6 days is about the same.

            Many of the people attending are 40 plus with possibly the biggest percentage at 60 plus.
            But... when you talk to then and ask them for an email address they look gone out at you.
            I'm guessing that only about 10 percent, 20 at the most, are computer literate.
            There are literaly many 1,000's over here doing fantastic work but other than some club stands at the shows, no one see it.

            But we are all the same, no matter what lanuage we speak or what colour.

              Here's another site. I can't read any of it but the guy (or gal) has a cute method for parting off a batch of small hex nuts. I don't see a tapping step though.

              HEY ! Just discovered that Altavista (Babelfish) does Japanese to English and it works (mangled but decipherable).

                Intresting how he puts a drive shaft together. Looks like he used small wires around the diameter to center it into the other thing. Then he mates the two, with solder or braze? What's with the fire? Where's the bbq? Oh, now I've done it. I'm hungry.

                        Actually we have had Japanese friends for well over thirty years.Hiro the man was at university in Durham studying politics ans we picked him up as a hitchiker.We have been friends ever since.His wife Tyako married him by post she lived with us for nearly a year after they got married.One time he hitch hiked all the way back to Japan when he got there his mother told him to sort out a bride as he was old enough to marry .He phoned the first girl he could think of and she accepted ,when he came home some papers were behind the door asking him to accept yes or no. Tyako went to the ceremony in japan alone she came out with 55 large packages a few weeks later and we had a small two bedroom flat .
                        My son Alistair was jut newly born he is 28 next week and she adored him.Hiro has just retired from nomura bank in London were he was one of the presidents he is very wealthy now and he and Tyako have three children and live in London .Alistair

                              I just had Bablefish translate the webpage, very interesting webpage.

                              Here is the URL for Babelfish, it's handy to have around.
