    I'll have you know I put a clean pair on every day. Trousers get a bit tight by the end of the week, I have to remove a few pairs. Pete
  2. The cabinet was called a fount, pronounced font. If you dropped your fount, it was said to be pied. When you'd picked it all up you had to sort all the type pieces into their correct compartments in the fount. Because the type pieces are a mirror image of the character they print, it's particularly difficult to sort lower case b from d, or p from q. Hence the expression "to mind your p's and q's". I don't know why we don't mind our b's and d's. Pete (a craft printer in the 1960s)
  3. After some Googling, I'll withdraw that. The criteria are the same. Pete
  4. In Scotland, where the criteria for testing are different. Pete
  5. That reminds me of a very old and slightly racist joke! Pete
  6. Surely the problem is not just the space though, it's the furniture, staff, and other resources. Pete
  7. Put it back together and keep checking the oil? Pete
  8. Or perhaps they did take note, and were keen to not infringe any registered design or trademark. Pete
  9. I had powder coated wire wheels on my car for about 10k miles with no sign of the coating failing. The MWS wheels from TR Shop have chromed stainless steel spokes, and I believe the rims are stainless too. Pete
  10. I use "Muc-Off", sold for cleaning bikes but works well on wires. Pete
  11. I was looking at that, but it's the first hour of opening, i.e. 7 am to 8 am, and I wonder how many of the elderly rely on buses and will be unable to get to a Sainsbury's that early. Pete
  12. I had something similar, which went away when I tightened the propshaft bolts! Pete

    Drive it day

    Looks as if Drive it Day is still on, so we can "wave at each other from a discreet distance". https://www.fbhvc.co.uk/news/article/driveitday2020?fbclid=IwAR3TMi-gyD7kZodH3aiMu11_C4ZI7MueLZQTwaefzpX3h62VUHnSfExYWZ8
