Re: Salad Bowl Speakers

Devialet Phantom speakers are a similar shape. They have several support stand options. See the link for ideas.

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Your Maxi looks great, complete with bars above the chainguard for resting your feet on when in the top speed crouch position. How do I know?😉🤣
Love the engine assembly jig👍🏻

Re: Salad Bowl Speakers

I’ve had so many incidents of Evri losing my deliveries I will no longer make purchases from companies that use them.

Good for you, Steve. It must be great to compare with what others are doing from around Europe and beyond.

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

Seems like a well thought out scheme to me. If the power from the grid goes down, a back-up keeps the cars rolling. Nothing new in that article. The American motoring press is littered with similar articles and others where Musk can do no wrong. Both sides of the Tesla/Musk divide spout loads of bol...

Re-schedule the time table (which they should have done anyway) and buses will run on time.

Re: Landrovers...

I may have been misinformed. Back in the day when being authorised to drive Landrovers for work, it was emphasised never to set the handbrake when the vehicle was still moving, even ever so slightly as damage could be caused to the differential. I understood it to be a mechanical lock rather than fr...

Re: Landrovers...

Working out if I can swap the old handbrake for a new style one with the switch as I have a nasty habit of not releasing the handbrake fully before driving off, and a BIG RED LIGHT may well stop me doing this.
