and one very grubby little girl ... she had a whale of a time .. and now wants to take them home ....... I've got some smaller stuff ... 2" tube is a bit big for little hands to grip ... so she might get a few frame sections, as it's only sat about ATM ... I'm sure 'mummy' will manage to put a few together for her.

When I commented about how I'd be in trouble when 'mummy' saw how grubby she'd gotten ... she said
" It's ok .. Mummy'll just put it in the washing machine " she's pretty switched on for four, fair play



been a mega day here today ... cloudless, azure sky, most of the day, until later on .. and some bit hot ... bit of tree slaughtering for the boss first thing ... bloody scrubby blackthorn invading us from the field next door, so they got a serious talking to with the 4ft loppers .... trimmed the lawn later .. amazed to get 2/3rds of a collector off it ..





and when it'd cooled down a bit - but not a lot and I'd had a shower, after the head got a no. 3 and the beard a no. 2 ... had an hour giving the bag lifter a coat ..


and that's been about it for the day ... been melting for most of it ...... see we have a serious shower forecast for Wed.s

not had the greatest of afternoons ... Hamster juice time this morning and turned my attention to me 7ft bucket after lunch



slung it out to the edge of me patch for a clean out



'fore setting about a tight pin, that I've not been able to get out since i had it ...

cleaned the end of the pin off carefully with a good file and was sure it was circular and devoid of burrs, from what were obviously previous attempts (mostly other's I hasten to add) and set about it with a sledge ... got it moving back and fore 1/2", but no further .... so .... dragged out me 10t press, stood said bucket on end and set up the press ..



was getting deflection between the cheeks so added a spacer



and a couple of wedges for extra umph ... still no go, further than this ..

'bout eleven mil ...

so reversed the set up .... to try and get yon pin back to where I started ...and added several lots of Ice to the top of the pin to try and chill it a bit




no movement back

so with the pin still pretty cool went back to trying to get the damned thing out .


with a few wedges for extra umph .. again

and that's where it's sat tonight ... pumped up full bollox ...



just been out and given the pump a few more pumps ... 'til it relieved ... it's moved about a mil., since tea time - now midnight !!

well pissed off with this .... have spent hours and gotten virtually no-where ..... heat treatment tomorrow .. not that I really want to, but the only other alternative is to slit the boss(es) with a thin disc, but they'll take some sorting after

only upside of the day was a great sunset ...





t'other pin came out sweet as !!

well I gave up with b'stard, yesterday ... had had the press on it all night and hadn't budged ..



well almost ... knocked the pin back in with the sledge, after i'd laid it back down



didn't take a lot either
so picked it into the shade



and gave the end of the pin a going over with the die grinder ..


and it STILL wouldn't go any further with me BIG sledge ...... reckon this has had a serious 'dubbing' at some time in its life ... or it's 'picked up' but i had had enough .. bigger tools required

so it got a coat of 'not so ..... ' and put aside

Me mate Simon rang shortly after looking to blag some 50mm BDMS ... been let down with a delivery and was in dire need to make up a shaft for one of his brother's machines, crucial to production .....

..... had some here so he headed my way .. with a detour to the boys in Raglan, who'd rung to say me seals'd arrived



Simon got 'quarantined on the lawn for a cuppa ... and these got quarantined on me bench, 'til this afters ..
Bag lifter got a 'flight' back to ....



.... its usual home ... from the bench, as I needed the space ...
to park this on whilst it got cleaned and tarted

well yesterday was a socially distanced birthday lunch ........... us indoors and Clara and co. outside the rear french doors ... too windy on the patio







it'd been 'kin cool here yesterday .. 30mph winds .. sun'd been lovely, but getting out of the wind had been 'tricky' ... sod's law after all the nice weather ... and then it pee-ed down for 5 minutes, just as we'd finished

Clara doesn't seem to mind, whatever the weather, as long as she gets to see us ..
