Whilst waiting for the Turkey to cook I thought the still cold air was ideal for a wee flight in the garden, it was only one as it was too cold for anymore!

Model was an RC Factory YAK55 from Expressfly, great little model!

Rumours have it that young Robert passed his A-cert last weekend. Details are still sketchy, but after hearing about his flying-skills during the last AGM, it seems he should have gotten a ‘DD’ for Dare-Devil..

😉

No doubt more details will be uncovered!

Alistairs’ Magic Touch

Attached are some piccys of the (grass mower) cutter deck in its previous state. When I chopped the rust off I found that the deck was lying open like a busted sofa. It nearly had more holes in it than it had metal left.  That was some heap of rust lying on the shed floor, but then, it has served us well and is a queere ol’ age. So its no shame it now needs rebuilding.

..before..

..before..

So after a bit of head scratching a plan was hatched.

It was made from 2mm steel but as I have a reputation of beefing things up, 3 mm was decided on simply because I spied a sheet of 3mm steel just the right size to cut the deck out of with practialy no waste left. It will probably do the job all right for another lock of years. The bearings were shot too, apart from one, but I put in four brand new ones. The colour might not be the same but Nuffield tractor orange was handier got hold off than Westwood mower orange, so can you guess which one I picked? I got self etch primer and sprayed it on and then a couple of days later some Nuffield orange. Everything in the shed was a tinge of orange from the over
spray includeing the tip of the dogs tail, I do wonder how that may
have happened, hmmmm!

..and after..

..and after..
