Everything else / Re: I've only gone and done it!
« on: May 29, 2019, 09:30:23 PM »
Hi All

Just over a year after 'spitting and shaking' the Marie - local council office - have accepted my application to convert the barn this afternoon.

It's taken so long 'cos I wouldn't cough up 4000 / 6000 Euros for an architect to do the plans, so you get to run around half a dozen different offices whilst getting drip fed information, still, once the Mayor has looked over the dossiers, read the soil report ref the septic tank and stamped all four copies of everything - takes around 2 months - I'll put my money down. That'll only take another three, so I should get the green light around half past October!

Cheers
Stef

Well at least most of the paint is off it, better get a couple or three wire brushes when you pop down the road to pick it up!

Best of luck, keep posting......

Hi Mike

I just looked and it's gone, did you go back to sleep or have a coffee whilst putting a bid on?

Impressive!

That's around 35 seconds a sheep, with AC DC drowning out the roar of the overworked Lister!

I could handle the machinery and the music but like you Glort, I don't think my spine would last the first half dozen sheep.

Hi Graham.

+1 for Butch's welcome.

Nice to see a Lister project in the hands of an enthusiast.

Wherever you glean information from please return here and post updates, most of us on here are mechanically bent voyeurs,  so whatever you are doing will be of interest, honest.
Cheers

+1 for the design, better than the 'mandraulic' system.

Hey Bob!

Nice to see you've not been loafing, just 'cos you can't type don't mean you can't bull up a bit of brass!

If the one eyed man is king in the land of the blind, a Pommie, in Oz, down to his last paw......

Not that I'm the one to gossip or stir the shite, as you well know.

Cheers

Nah, stick it all on here, Casey!

I know this site started with Listeroids and CS's, but all the diversions keep it interesting. There are other sites, whos moderators call for a new topic every time the form or pitch of a bolt changes - or heaven forbid, mention of a left hand thread occurs, God bless em. (Thanks for the forbearance, Ade)

Here you can ask about your 'E' mates health, rant about Fedex and ignore all the stuff you don't like.

Personally I like to know what Ed Dee has been building, am vaguely interested in Glort's dad's scrapyard and will happily read posts on genny trouble shooting and building circuits with Mosfets - for years I thought that was a suburb of Khartoum , even though I'm still electrically challenged.

The posts I don't like I don't read.

We're all a little odd, a little to opinionated some times, some of us more than others, I very much doubt many of us will ever meet in the real world, thank Christ!

Cheers

Go into photoshop, or whatever, there's several you can down load for free, and crop off all the edges of the photos that aren't relevant, then reduce the quality. Even if you don't use an editing programme very often, I certainly don't, it's not hard.

Search the site for earlier posts, there's loads of great stuff on here ref. gennies and output. Almost certainly you'll find something to get you started.

Engines / Re: How best to set up a Lister A
« on: May 05, 2019, 09:09:15 AM »
The distortion of mating surfaces is common on the old Zenith' from the '60's as well, makes them impossible to set up, as noted by Cobbadog, plate glass and wet and dry.

This could all go terribly wrong,

What happens if Glort ends up in Saudi Arabia?
