    Storm Ellen has blown itself out, and we now have high pressure and warm sunshine, lets hope spring is here and the poor ppl on the West of the UK can start to dry out.

    Hi Chaps, weather is still atrocious, bitter wind and horizontal sleet today, and I have stayed in the warm! here are some more of my projects, ongoing and finished, but we start out with the glory days of Dean Smith and Grace in Keighley, West Yorkshire, A factory I actually went to in the seventies when I got my first lathe, a DS&G 13Z. If you go to Page Title there is a factory tour there which is every bit as interesting as the Doxford one Hope you like it, and don't forget to comment and subscribe.

    Hi Chaps, the week was going so well, once it had started (Tuesday), weather has improved and I feel fit again, and it was all downhill fom there! When everything around you is going bad, you have to take the opportunity to "break on through to the other side" so it's head down, and puuuuuush!Like, laugh, subscribe, comment enjoy!

    Hi All, the welder part is on back order, and this week we decided, seing as the weather was good, to deal with some trees damaged in the recent winds, sort of commando gardening!. We have a 4 Acre field just across the village from the Workshop, and this week, and next week, if dry, will be a maintenance blitz, as it is next to the road, and fallen trees tend to interfere with traffic! please like, comment and subscribe!

    And Now, due to Keiths wife having a seroius heart condition (although you wouldn't think it when you see her work) and my wife having Asthma, we are self isolating from each other, so the fencing and completion of the field work will be at a later date! Normal workshop style stuff will contine as long as we are well, I can isolate myself there!

    Hi people,
    During last weeks work on the fallen trees, I discovered that my chainsaw, an antique Stihl 08S, would not start, here is the tale of me fixing it, and then fixing it again! Many thanks to "The Repair Specialist" whose youtube vids put right my mistake! Enjoy, subscribe, and above all, stay healthy!

    Hi all,
    Not done much due to the virus lockdown, I bet all the survivalists in the USA are rolling around their bunker floors, surrounded by food, laughing their heads off! I did get a day and a half in the workshop, made a cold frame for my daughters roof garden, she was pleased with the solid practical construction, but thought the aesthetics left a lot to be desired! Teenagers! There's no pleasing them! Like, comment, subscribe, enjoy! We live in "interesting" times.

    Week 3 of lockdown, I have not been to the workshop at all, may go next week, see how it goes. This is a little look round our back garden showing my rustic brickwork and a garden tour narrated by my elcest, including a brief glimpse of Catherine, my wife, and emily, my youngest, brief because they refused to be filmed!. Warning, contasins gratuitous pressure washer action!

    Glad to see you are playing it smart, thanks for the video. That looks to be an older Stihl than mine..

    Hi Charles, I bought this saw in the late eighties from a friend who ran a one man machinery repair workshop for horticultural machinery. He explained he couldnt retail it because it did not have a chain brake. I think I bought it at the end of the eighties, but not really sure, and it has really done some work! the new diaphragm kit is the first serious work on the engine since then, although it has had a couple of new chains at least. They were first introduced in 1963!!! I really had no idea it was that old. Emailed Stihl for a manual, and got one by return! You dont see that much nowadays!
    Stay healthy.
    Phil, East yorkshire, Bright and sunny, but still a bit of a chill in the air!

    I thought it looked older than mine, it is from early 1980's, Ill have to get a photo of it. I know the last time it was serviced the Stihl guy said he couldnt get parts for it anymore, that was 10yrs ago.

    Week 5 draws to a close, and I have not been to the workshop, so here is a tale of the problems I am having finding the fault on the TIG, problems caused in part by the inadequate "schematic", a poor excuse for a wiring diagram
