Re: meet up in coniston

Eh - what? I'm not organising this. In fact I've not even been invited yet!

Re: meet up in coniston

Saturday is usually a great night around the fire in the Sun Inn followed by a thick head in the Bluebird Cafe on Sunday morning wondering where all your money went. Hmmmm - do I have to go?

Re: Shop - Suggested new line

Birmabright is an aluminium alloy, which includes copper, magnesium, silicon and nickel. There were various grades of Birmabright designated BB2, BB3, etc depending on their ideal application. It's basically a 5000 series alloy. But they only used that on the easy bits. Go look up DTD alloys. They'r...

Re: Shop - Suggested new line

I forgot about the plumbing bits - the fire suppression system was plumbed in with half-inch copper pipe and compression fittings. They threaded it right down the left-hand side of the frame just to be sure that the dissimilar metal rot got EVERY bulkhead where the copper passed through. No consider...

Re: Shop - Suggested new line

We could make the kit but you'd have to supply your own tins of filler, bits of string for the heat shields, half a smashed up wardrobe to balance the lead ingots on in the stern, some of Donald's old shirts to soak up spilled kerosene then you'd have to scatter a bucketful of spanners, unused rivet...
