And that's not musical eh! Shoddy is what springs to mind.
Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.

If you like "heavy duty" engineering and machining give Kurtis from Cutting Edge Engineering (in Australia) a look. Plenty of repairs to earthmoving and construction machinery.

This is his latest video, but plenty more from the past.

I'm finding all of the 'Tyrrell's Classic Workshop' videos very absorbing :


This series with Harry's ( Metcalf ) garage, restoring the Espada engine and roof, was also an excellent :


Looks like he's located on Broughton airfield, near the Airbus site.

Any of Allen Millyard's videos are worth 10 of any other on YouTube.

Clearly he is a talented man, but there's loads of other interesting material on the channel.

I'm getting more into local history, particularly railway based, and at the moment in the Yorkshire area.

SWMBO, I and the dog were down at the Dungeness nature reserve yesterday and visited Derek Jarman's house & garden which has the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway at the bottom of the garden - saw a couple of old chuffers go through (set against the charming brutalist backdrop of the nuclear power station).

SWMBO (who does the Wim Hoff cold swimming thing) had a dip but there's a strong undertow there so with my stuffed knee, I didn't join her, even though it's right by the RNLI station.

Had lunch at the Fish Hut just up the road from there. Highly recommended.

It's a good spot, I've been there twice and spend many hours on the beach, taking photos of the disintegrating boats and other industrial debris. I remember having a fish & chip lunch in the pub ( what's it called, the 'Three-Eyed Cod' ? ) both times we were there.

There's "The Pilot Inn", but the Fish Hut is the best by far IMO - https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restauran ... gland.html

There's also the PLUTO (Pipeline Under The Ocean) Cottage - a secret oil pumping station disguised as a cottage nearby - the pipeline that went from Walton on Thames through there to Boulogne was called DUMBO.

It's very very impressive but I wonder how it handles and if he's done anything to improve the frame rigidity. I can't remember if the 2 strokes were like
the early 4 strokes ie Z1 ie dire. Good to see it has dual front brakes.
I wonder if it sounds as good as the triples.

One of the nice things about the FIAT is that it makes this thing almost look sensible:

I've seen the Fiat S76 on many of the Youtube programmes about the Goodwood hillclimb that i was watching in the last few weeks. It creases me that it doesn't have any exhaust pipes, the flames just come out of the bonnet and burn the paintwork !
