  1. Would love to buy this as there is a relic one up the road near a Bofors gun site left after the war by the Canadians, but due to circumstances can only dream.
  2. I used aluminium solder sticks to weld up a aluminium project. Worked very well.

    Where is this?

    This has been on Youtube a while.
  4. Saw this on youtube two youths sneaking around someones yard. Must say theres some nice stuff that should be put in a barn.
  5. I see that people who run vintage bikes use Avgas. I have seen youtube videos of how to extract ethanol from petrol, looks straight forward. Not sure if there is some kind of additive you can add that reduces the effects of ethanol.
  6. You could get the local schools and colleges involved as part of their education. Your museum is on the door step to Alton. Hopefully this will justify your museum as part of the community to the bods in council.
  7. As for going to a show, you get a friend to get you one. Obviously no show on this year, your have to wait till next year.
  8. Sten mags at the big shows were £3 a pop not that long ago brand new in grease. Cant get them cheaper than that. which stock do you want as there are two types, T stock or the gun shape open frame job. You can buy them on ebay as i have seen these up for grabs on there from time to time.
  9. Who are these arseholes, name and shame, not from Penns Palace Petersfield are they. These wa***ers reduced the Heritage centre here in Bordon from a modern high tec building to one room in the old sargent mess in the old camp and we are still waiting for this to happen. Peterfield got a museum with a huge lottery grant, yet the Woolmer forest area has tons of heritage much more than Petersfield by far. Your museum would be perfect for the area. May be you should re- locate to Petersfield, they would be falling over themselves get you started.
  10. It might be worth getting a engineer machinist to have a look and give an opinion. I have a mate who may be able to help out. I will send him the picture and see the best way.
  11. Hi Simon I had a look, the largest I have is about 1' 1/4 whitworth. Sorry about that. As for using a die I would use a die nut as you don't need a die wrench that would get in the way of the rest of the engine. I have in the past used grinding paste to work a thread on freely. One thing you won't be able to do is restore the missing thread's when retapping. The worst you can do is cross thread especially this size. .
  12. I may have a die as i had quite a few taps and dies given to me when they cleared out a camp years ago.
  13. If you don't have it Maurice i will be interested if its not gone, i have been after a F phone for a while.
  14. I'm the guy from Bordon who was talking about some form of museum here dedicated to the Canadian and military training. I am on the Maple leaf site and could mention your problem to them. I also had the same problem signing up.
  15. For those lucky to own a Sherman or Stuart tank or any other form of tank here is a video that could help you out of a tricky situation. Has anyone tried any of the methods shown.
