From the link;

Doctors say "drink-free" days will improve sleep, help with weight loss and reduce the risk of high blood pressure and cancer.

Doctors also peddle snake oil and fail to cure the air leak in my rear tyre. I think I'll stick to my very modest daily consumption of Malbec.

Why does nitromors seem to be bloody useless these days?
Left some on a cut down lenco chassis for about 3 hours and it barely touched it!!?

Cleaned it off thoroughly to get all the nitromors off, went and got some rustins strypit instead, it took the lot off in half an hour....

The formulation changed in 2006 - the active ingredient which was Dichloromethane was found to be very toxic and the EU actually banned its use in consumer/retail paint stripper in 2009...

According to their RoHS Safety Data Sheets, Strypit uses methylene chloride now, whereas Nitromors is based on a mix of ethyl acetate, acetone & methanol

Yes, it's fast but she was towed up to speed and then rode in a slipstream so was still being towed to some extent. I think the hour record is a much better way of defining the cycling speed benchmark;

MSI Manchester.

Post by pre65 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 1:40 pm

I'm planning a visit to MSI (museum of science and industry) in Manchester in the near future.

Going by train from Low Moor (Bradford). Are there any other interesting places to visit in that area ?
