And the toilets are very good, (for any one of a certain age).

Thread: Waltron Radio gear

The model shops round Manchester area (Waltron's home area) were always chock a block with second-hand Waltron sets.

Read that as you may.

An interesting point.

Curry's electrical stores have a subsidiary company that stocks all the spare parts for all the products that they sell, from computers to washing machines. And I mean all the parts.

This facility is available to all, on line, not just tradesmen.

I don't have the link but you will find it on Curry's main home site. Suffice to say I recently bought from them, and fitted, a new control panel for a Bosch washing machine.

So there must be some out there who are still happy to repair rather than throw away.

Improvers (bodgers) are everywhere.

A company brings out a perfect product, sales are sky high, it does it's job, never breaks down or gives rise to complaint.

So what does the company do? They set up an R&D department to improve the product.

Learn from other peoples mistakes, life's to short to make them all yourself.

Thread: Why does this happen?

What about idle-bar plugs, a plug with a slug of metal across the base of the plug which stayed warm and, according to folk-law, sometimes came loose and damaged the piston.

I well remember the Cox glo head, you had to have a yard (metre) of wire to the 2 volt glass accumulator used at the time, in order to reduce the voltage.

I thought modern plugs were 1.5 volt or less, not 2 volt as used in the 1960's

There is an O ring on the needle shaft, this sometimes leaks air, replace it.

Thread: Reccomend a M/R for some OLD lads to have a dabble

I suggest you start with a UDI RC U829A Mega Drone from Slough Radio Control.

This is an excellent overgrown basic drone. It will do all you can ask of it, will fly in a wind without trouble. Teach yourself nose in hovering.

20 inches from corner to corner, comes with everything you need, including Transmitter, NiCad, charger, and includes a very reasonable movie or still camera, Tx operated.

All for less than £80 delivered.

I have owned one for over 2 years of regular use and it's still going great.

I like that BEB, I had thought that this thread was going a bit over the top

Just watch out for (and ignore) suggestions from Windows that you should upgrade to Windows 10.

First learn to do a figure of eight in constant knife edge, in both directions. That will teach you to recognise the attitude of the plane all round the circle.

I try not to, I'd rather not have some responsibility for their frustration, demoralisation and reducing bank balance. cheeky

Thread: Sheet Balsa 43 " long

Leeds model shop also do Balsa wood on line. As for sizes cost etc, I haven't bought balsa for many years but I know from experience that they are a good shop to deal with for other lines.
