Re: Cellulose paint

I think you need to satisfy yourself on that one, you might like to consider how strong the smell is, whether you paint outside for ventilation or indeed how much you are doing. Nothing wrong with wearing a mask but you can go overboard sometimes. However the question suggests you’d be happier weari...

The point being, they wouldn’t be as full ! Bikes are smaller than 4x4s. :D
I’ll keep my bike; I don’t like queuing for the shops, let alone on the roads.
There’s a lot of anti bike feeling.

Re: Electric Cars

Would anyone really want to drive a car in 2030, electric or not. The roads are full up now ! Motorcycles are the answer but the government seem anti bike for some reason.

Re: petrol pump paranoia?

The character of it all was all taken for granted then. It’s only now looking back, that you wished you’d taken more notice. Things might be more efficient now, I say might! but where’s the Quality? I wonder if the next wave of humanity will look back on today with similar sentiments. Of course they...

Re: Car not starting

It’s worth mentioning to keep your thumb the same side of the handle as fingers. I’m surprised that no previous poster has highlighted this, as now there might be people thinking of trying this method of starting, who are not aware of this precaution.

Re: Length of 2Ba cheese Head Screws bowl to wing

Re: Length of 2Ba cheese Head Screws bowl to wing

Unless I’m misunderstanding this, is the length critical? As long as the the thread exits the nut by 3 or so mm that would be fine.
