Hi all, I get back to the workshop on the Thursday of this week, was going to do friday as well, but circumstances overtook me and I never got there. As winter approaches fast I decided to crack on with the heating, and find the fan which is most suitable has knackered bearings, more on order as we speak. I have other fans I could use, but they are predomantly plastic, and although they would work, not really suitable for a burner! I also have a few gas boiler flue fans, but all have a 2" outlet! I will prevail! I will try to get back Monday and see how it goes, the fishermans freinds are a usefull anti cough!

Hi all,
Just a short video to bring the 2022 fun and games to a close! I am not a great christmas fan, mainly because of the cold weather, the rampant consumerism and the cynical exploitation used to extract peoples cash! BAH HUMBUG!! Having said that it is a good excuse to do nothing with lots of good food and glasses of port and brandy, to aid the digestion and keep out the cold you understand, and strictly NOT to be enjoyed in any other way! Hope you all have a good time and don't over indulge too much
A  merry Yule to one and all!!
It's flippin freezin in East Yorkshire

Hi all, I set off to Langtoft on Monday,  feeling more positive and healthier, and actually got a few little jobs done, then the weather closed down again, and towards the end of the week a freeze set in, and reports of cars sliding down Tigh Hoe hill ended my weeks optimism, I will have another go next  week, weather forecast is better!

Hi all,
another short video on some very interesting repairs to some metal antiques, preceded by a view of our freshly decorated front room ceiling wrecked by a pesky leak!! These things are sent to try us! I have been looking through my past (go pro) videos, and I am going to shoot some footage with it and do sound overdub because the wide angle effect on the go pro gives a farmore immersive experience! Feeling much better now as spring approaches and raring to get back in the shop full time!

Hi all,

Repairing  a broken hinge on a pair of sunglasses hardly seems like a worthwhile task, but the are the wifes favourite pair of Foster Grants from back in the day, So off I go! then we pick  up where we left off on the Holbrook, and start wprking towards the reassembly of the saddle and apron, and there is the small problem of the knock off rod that puts the screcutting feed out of gear, which is ever so slightly bent in more than one place, and needs to be straight!!

Hi all,

Do you ever have one of those weeks when you start out with the best intentions, but somehow get derailed by the wants and needs of others? It's called life! I did much more than this, including house calls to fix various electrical problems(which I couldn't film) Sorting my water pump on the workshop rainwater system, which is a tedious fault which refuses to  show up in testing, but manages to trip the RCD after the pump has run for a few seconds! I have now a workaround, connect it to a non RCD connected supply for a few moments, and it cures itself! This happens if I am away from the shop for more than a couple of weeks, but at all other times, used regularly, no problems! Anyway, I get the dowel pins bored for the Holbrook, and slowly we are staggering forward into spring!

Hi All,
Volvo V70 mot work, fitting new steering  column U/J which everyone seems to think you need to lower the subframe to get the lower U/J bolt out, you don't, it is just accesible from under the wheel arch but  you will need a good fitting 10mm socket and two 12" extension bars! Having not worked on cars since I was in my twenties this weeks work left me with aches in places I never  new I had! Conclusion and back onto the Holbrook next week! Welcome aboard to all the new subs, and thanks to all the old ones!

Hi All,
We complete the MOT work on the Volvo, only to find we can't get a test booked till next Wednesday! No matter, we have plenty of field work to complete so it is on to clearing out around the new fence in the Field and a couple od days of "Osswork" It nearly kills us, but we just survive! It has made a huge inprovement, and I can report that Saturday morning I am feeling better than I have felt since before getting covid in November. Even though the work is very hard, even the icy blast from the north on friday, complete with sleety rain Couldn't stop us!

Hi All,
We take advantage of the gradually warming weather to finish the fencing  on the dog run, and then clear out the rest of the bank top in prepeation for the new fence up the side of the field to the house.  Wednesday I am back in the workshop, and thursday its another mixed bag of Antique repairs and appliances on friday!

I started the week with a couple of days of small repairs in the workshop, then went up to the field, and continued with our big clearance in readiness for the new fencing. Fixed a hydraulic leak on the tractor tip pipe. I also ordered the PTO clutch for the tractor, and on sunday, went to Catwick to buy a very reasonably priced machine lamp which is the exact one for the Harrison milling machine, but more of that next week!

Hi All,

A short week again due to the recurring Covid symptoms that many people seem to be suffering from! Monday I started the rewire of the British Legion Hall which is about to become my brothers workshop,  Then a blur of headaches, stiff necks etc followed by a very productive friday whence I fitted the over run clutch to the fordson, and stripped and painted my new machine lamp for the Harrison millimg  machine. In all we are moving forward, unlike the weather which has regressed to wet and cold! All we need is a couple of good drying days and we will be grass cutting!
Phil, It is wet and cold in East Yorkshire!

Hi All,

This week I get to redecorate a machine lamp for the Harrison Mill, and a main switch for the legion rewire job. As usual we have a tidy up midweek, and then spend Friday removing the old fencing in the field The weather was not kind to us this week, we had two days of beutifull sunshine and were all set to give the tractor and topper its first outing on Wednesday, and it rained! we need about three days of clear breezy weather to get out and cut it! It will happen,but it needs to  be soon as it is slowly beginning to grow.

Hi All,
A week of field work and a lot of rain means that the grass will be growing, but too wet to cut! We are assaulted by wild dogs, and I get in the machine lamp rebuild as well!  All in all, a productive week, and got to meet a new friend called Noah who is into boatbuilding and wildlife preservation! Have a look at Carl Wilsons channel where he is refurbing a Harrison milling machine with an identical lovolite. A true perfectionist!

Hi All,
The Fordson comes into its own, and proves how tough it is! after an hour or so of clearing brambles the engine sounds sweet as a nut, the oil pressure and temperature are rock solid, and she is not smoking from the exhaust, it was always a good starter, but after an afternoons working it seems to be even better, The hydraulic leak has dissapeared and everything works as it should. I am  beggining to understand how to  set up the topper, and we have decided that after we have cleared all the brambles, we will drop it down a notch and do another cut, weather permitting of course. 
Phil, and warm and wet East Yorkshire.

Don't drive so fast & adjust the topper to be only slightly "nose - down". Make sure the topper is at 540rpm on the PTO & use low range to get a speed of about 2mph on the first pass.
This will give the topper the chance to double chop the brambles. Go over a second time as low as you dare & you'll mulch up much of the bramble stems & won't need to clear up. Carry plenty of shear bolts & tools to fit: spanner to fit nut & mole grips for bolt head, punch & hammer to knock out a broken bolt & wangle the holes back in line. Good luck!

So far only one shear bolt,  but I have now  got spares  and tools in the box, which I didnt have before.  Unfortunately no rev counyer on this one, and it is a pain! thanks for the advice, , we will get it right eventually! Today we are fixing small tractor and trailer so we can clear the wood that has accumulated, charging in blind and hitting a log doesnt work!

Hi All,
A short showery week, but we made inroads into having useful and reliable machinery to use in the field! I find a major problem( but easily solved) with the throttle set up on the Toro tractor, and the dodgy clutch is fixed to perfection! I fit (another) new starter, and various other problems which have shown up during "field trials". Then we finish the framing and boarding on the trailer, but first we fix the puncture!

Hi Phil,
It would cost 23 (euro) without insurance  28 with insurance to send from Ireland to UK

Let me know what you think
