    Washing her bottom

    Tired of getting wet trying to get the pressure washer under her I’m sad to learn Clarke are about the only manufacturer not to offer some sort of u bend gutter extension . Plenty of quick release options if I’m lucky enough to buy an adapter that actually fits but then I thought why not just...

    Aquasteel not a review

    But a curiosity , given I read all the usual claims while comparing to similar products before buying and ultimately deciding to try it and see for myself is the only way forward . So when I found this dried spill which would have convinced me without all the reading I figured I’d post it up...

    Not to detract from the tragic circumstance that should never happen , I'm confused by all that's followed . Are the feminists protesting their right to be recognized as the weaker sex or am i missing something :confusion-shrug:

    Is there a CV joint test

    Voting Fraud

    Personally i don't believe the hype but i'm bored and wondering what if banks did the counting with a 1 dollar refundable vote . I imagine digital voting is avoided because it would be very easy to corrupt but trillions of dollars change hands on a daily basis and every one must be accounted for .

    Question for an engineer ................

    I want to spend 3 grand on boat propeller shaft couplings but before i do i must identify the PCD of the output flange coupling . It's not a standard part because its a bobbin used to clear a protrusion on the gearbox so couplings don't foul , though it probably is a standard size with regards...

    Engine swap perfectly good 1KD (d4d) to a 1KZ-te .
