Look What I bought
So just before I went away last week sailing I bought myself another project. I have bought myself an old Series 2A Land Rover. It has one of the original 2.25 Litre 4 Cylinder Petrol engines. It does run, however a lot of water leaks from the weep hole on ...

A Great week away.
Last week I was lucky enough to go out sailing on the Tall Ship James Craig. We sailed from Sydney up to Broken Bay, spent most of the week up there. Then sailed back down on Thursday with some great weather and managing to get some significant sail set. He...

Waste oil burner. This time with videos.
Last weekend I fired up the oil burner again. This time I prepared a reasonable amount of fuel for pre-heating. I even tried to light it without accelerants. Unfortunately everything was wet and the kerosene was so close to hand. So I did cheat a little. He...

Make sure you fix your mistakes
The other week I was putting a sight glass back in a tank when I managed to overtighten one of the bolts and snap it off. I didn't really need to tighten up those bolts that much so it really shouldn't have happened. But accidents happen. You can see what's...

You have to maintain a jacket?!
I had to re-waterproof my rain jacket at the end of last year. (More detail on the process here and here ). This style of jacket needs to have the waterproofing re-applied about every 6 months or when the jacket dries out too much again. So it is a bit over...

Sometimes it doesn't work out
Over the weekend I tried to save some money. The car we recently bought for my lovely girlfriend needed new tires. We knew that when we bought it though so no shocks there. What I did realize though is that I have a car with tires that still have a little t...

Spacing it out
We've managed to fill up all of the hard drive space I put in the NAS (Jerry) Thankfully it hasn't been too critical and we have been able to continue as normal basically without noticing that we can't store anything more on there. However this is something...

It can be better to pay first
Paying for a good tool or a part can be a bit offputting as the initial expense seems to be much higher. However cheaping out and getting something that might not work properly will most likely be more expensive in the long run. I have had that idea highlig...

Sometimes there's not too much reason
Well, more like excuses. I spent the afternoon yesterday playing with my remaining air compressors. I have now got them set up so the working compressor head which is only rated at about 150W pumps into about 60L of storage. Once I get the un-seized compres...
