Hi folks,

I get the boiler back together, reinstalled, but just get started on the flue and run out of Mig gas, so its on to some other joblets to fill in! Boiler is refilled with no leaks, so the Fernox leak sealer has triumphed once again, other makes are available! A short, mainly wet week!

Phil, June 1st is grey and cold in East Yorkshire!

Hi folks,
A very short week of modifying an inherited partly made(?) stand to suit my very heavy gas forge, so thatI can use it anywhere in the shop, as opposed to having to carry it to some level surface and set it up to use! Only got a couple of days in before life overtook me, but much was achieved!

Hi folks,
I get the gas forge up on its stand, change the gas burner orientation to make it more compact, and get it running in order to heat and flat bend some strip steel. Then I get the new boiler flue fitted and fit a new thermostat so it will self regulate and shut down if it gets too hot! Looking at the weather I might need it! Time to test it soon!!
Phil, splish splashing through the EastYorkshire monsoon!

Hi folks,

I get to the root of my heating problem when I strip the pump down, but only manage one and a bit days at the workshop this week! The bushings on the pump are very worn and the rotor is catching on the stator and the pump locks up. I have an ominous feeling in the back of my mind that thisis why I took this pump out of service in the first place! We find that no matter how many of a thing you have in your pile of junk, you eventually use up the last one!

Hi folks,
A mixed bag this week! I fix the garden tractor after it takes on a tree stump and loses, get started on realigning the colchester lathe (more next week) Do the inevitable tidying up, and have two very productive days of antique repairs ! Enjoy!
Phil, the central heating is on in East Yorkshire!
