    Hi Guys, part 3 of the workshop rebuild series, actually in the workshop itself. Still quite intensive, but not as difficult or time consuming as the Church lane end. Enjoy, like, subscribe, and be amazed that I actually completed it without having a complete meltdown!!

    That is a quite a big pile of dirt to hold back, looks nice.

    Hi Charles,
    the pics of the wall are a bit deceptive, as I said the wall was never completed when my father and I built the shop, and the earth you see is the remains of the topsoil that had cascaded through the gap and fomed a pile on the lower level, just underneath that black topsoil is solid layered chalk, which is not going anywhere! The pressure on the wall itself is minimal becasue the chalk is porous and drains well, and the amount of soil weight it actually holds back is very small. If you dig in most areas of the higher parts of the village, there is about a foot of black topsoil, followed by 9" of chalky subsoil, then you are into broken flinty chalk, which becomes solid a little further down.Foundations do not need to be very deep here! The picture below shows how it used to look, the telephone pole is in the same place, but all the building on the left are now demolished, apart from the furthest away!I should have put this in the video!

    I didn't explain that very well! At the end of the slideshow, the pics of the repaired wall, and the brick wall beyond it is what used to be the rear walls of these now demolished buildings. The phone pole is in the same place with and without buildings. These houses and a shop were built into a chalk bank, and had steep stairs at the back to get into the back gardens on the higher level, needless to say, when it rained, water from the higher level ran through the houses, and out of the front doors, and some even fitted intenal drains to carry it away! They were condemned in the early sixties, but still lived in when we came to the village. There will be one more video in this series, I will put some older pics in that one!

    All those demolished brick buildings kind of explains all the brick in the ground before you pored the new concrete. Have a great weekend.

    Hi Chaps, having mainly recovered from my Lurgi, I am back at work on "light duties" so in the last couple of days, I have been building the new straight flue to try and cure the forge smoking problem. I have built a coupler/ hinge to join the new flue to the old one, and to install and maintain the flue extractor, and so that I can lower the flue in windy weather, as we do get a lot of wind in winter and early spring. There is also a slideshow of rebuilding and upgrading my BEN patents air compressor. Like, comment, subscribe if you want, but above all, Enjoy!!

    I left the flue folded down over the weekend as "storm Ciara" was coming in over the west coast, Good thing I did! Hours of howling wind and sheeting rain!

    Well, I am saying C aaara!, as in sierra, but with an AAAR instaid of an EEER!! I think they are running out of names. Yesterday was rough, not as bad today, still wind coming in from the west, and regular squally rain, but I decided to give the workshop a miss today as I dont want to put the flue up in this wind and that means no heating!

    No Charles, but I do revel in my Lidl insulated overalls! It is still blowing hard here, has calmed down a bit today, but it was quite "busy" last night, though no more trees down in our area! Snow and ice in the west as well!

    Well here is an odd offering! have only been to the shop one day this week, as the weather has been very bad, and I am still a bit under it! Here is a job I did a few years ago on a Citroen 2cv, rebuilding the back end with new inner wings and boot floor. Beware of these cars! If you ever drive one, you will want one! They are so much fun, and dead easy to mend, but the downside is, they ROT! Not at all the car I would ever thought I would enjoy driving, just goes to show that performance isn't everything. Like comment subscribe, enjoy!

    Hi boys and girls, still not feeling quite right, but almost there! I did nothing this week, due to the storms and the wind howling round, so I have put together a slideshow of one of our late great engineering works, Doxford and Sons, of Sunderland, Marine engine builders. There is a link at the end to a silent colour amatuer film of the works in action. They built their last engine in 1980. Like, comment, subscribe, and as always, enjoy it!

    It always liked to see those photos, thanks for memorializing them on Youtube for us to enjoy. Hope things dry out for you there, pretty wet here as well.

    Thanks Charles, we have had a lot of rain here, but no flooding in the East UK, River at York is high, but has not caused any problems. It is the west side of the UK that has really had a bad time. If this weather pattern persists, might be time for some US style storm drains to back up the rivers, and it is definitely time for some waterway maintenance and dredging, which has not been done for many years now!
    All the best,

    Monday, and true to the forecast, it snowed! It has mainly gone already, but the drive up to langtoft to take my mum to her doctors appointment was "interesting". Roll on spring!!

    We have had some fun here in Georgia USA. A week ago we had unseasonably warm weather followed by rain and flooding then a cold snap and snow, a rare thing here. I told mother now all we need is an earthquake. Wouldnt you know the next morning we did have one!! Mother told me I need to learn to keep my mouth shut, and not for the first time.

    Have a good week.

    Charles
