  1. Found this for you , amazing what you can do using Google search.




    I recently purchased a 2.0 KVA Haverhill generator and I am looking for someone to assist in servicing this unit, perhaps an ex employee of the company, with servicing knowledge, could contact me and help with my problems. Thanks

      Best regards and heres hoping Stuart

    That was true, but now you need a ticket to dig and reinstate, it is supposedly to prevent holes in the highway having to be dug up several times to sort

    Anyone digging on a street or highway under the Roads and Streetworks Act 1991 has to have a licence.  In a nutshell this was introduced by the Government in order to prevent a road or pavement being incorrectly re-instated, thus causing subsidence or potholes. It was also to prevent a road or pavement being dug up, reinstated and dug up a few months later by a different utility to the first.

    The fact of the matter is the dodgy practices of the past still continue with some contractors totally ignoring the legislation - especially some councils own staff !!!!

    Correct I have just been through the mill regarding keeping my minibus and other entitlements H-licence ect now I have reached seventy. It only took 3-1/2 months and eleven phone calls to DVLA so I may continue driving minibuses on  a voluntary basis for the benefit of others at my local authority. it also means I can enjoy driving friends QL and OY or the International or Fordson sadly I don't have my 432 anymore but if I had I'd enjoy taking it shopping at Tesco as I did in the past

    In  my observation the ability to drive has nothing to do with age and a lot to do with common sense and a perception of danger, which in my experience is declining.

    Oh yes, I forgot about that part, after 70yrs they remove your minibus D1 entitlement and C1 >7.5 tonnes categories I believe? 

    Not strictly true, it can be maintained provided your doctor and optician pass you fit to drive, though another piece of legislative nonsense is the  ability to hold a B licence and pass a H test then drive a tracked vehicle of any weight, provided you maintain your B licence.

    Its not that bad its only got 8 or 9 bits of chrome on it not my cup of tea  and air horns look a bit odd but i dont think you would have more then a day to remove the chrome and paint the stuff you intend to keep .  Each to there own i say  its not what i would do doesn't mean its wrong if the bloke likes that thats all that matters as its him that was driving it . £500 and its all green .


    Does that include putting back the bits that have gone missing ? (If you can find them)........

    An AC current generates a magnetic field across the wire that opposes the flow of current, known as induction. DC does not. Yes any alternating current will flow through Skin Effect, the picture I was told was AC think of a swirling jet of water, it will cling to the sides of the pipe and leave a hole in the middle. DC is a smooth steady flow so can fill all the pipe. Probably better descriptions out there, but it works for me.

    So Tony- given the foregoing, An AC current generates a magnetic field across the wire that opposes the flow of current, known as induction. DC does not.  and expounding your vast knowledge electricity can you explain how a DC clamp meter works?


    PS - I did study physics, I think your ideas on electricity are wonderful 🙂 . I am in awe, as I'm sure is Chris McMillan.

  7. I see.. interesting, a bit like water going down the plughole. the swirling is different depending in which hemisphere you live.

    I must ask the next electrician I see if I can have hollow cables as the inside bit isn't any good and I am paying for it 🙂



    Owing to having no time and too many things on the go, for sale is a Gas gun firing control circuit. with the two valves, spark plug, and coil.

    I'm also throwing in a spare coil. All this complete with instructions. £55 postage paid. This is unused and untried but the instructions are complete. The circuit is set up for a Browning heavy machine gun, but can easily be adjusted for other gun types.

    You will need to construct the barrel, swirl chamber, fit jets, provide the gas and tubing - all info is with the instructions.

    PM me if interested.

    Please note I will not send the instructions without the parts i.e The complete package needs to be bought.
