Fairies have been ...
« on: March 15, 2019, 01:00:32 PM »
[1]  Hmmm....

Five lumps, 53mm x 145mm, 6082  ally.

Far, far too posh for the lowly likes of myself  I fear   :)

I am a dismal creature, completely lacking in imagination ....

What to do with them ..  :headscratch:

[2] Hmmmmmmmmmmm .... again ....

Can't see them being much use if they're zero thickness.  :D

I mostly use offcuts of 6082 for fixtures to help machine the more awkward parts of my engines.

Thanks Dave  ;D

I tend to agree with him that they look to be idea for the cylinder sleeves for our BR2. So hopefully they will keep him occupied for a while    ::)

Surus says thanks for dropping off the Ali Dave :pinkelephant:

He has been suggesting that I should go and try out my new sandblaster cabinet on them to make them look like real castings in his collection rather than just bits of bar stock    :-\

Kindly convey my warmest felicitations to young Surus and tell him he is most welcome to the ally.    :ThumbsUp:
Give 'em a quick waft over. Get a bit of practice with the blaster ...  :D

3 hrs. 18 mins. to get back. Still no record.  Mind you, 19 miles of 50 limit don't help ..  :rant:  :rant:
Need more poke perchance ....  :thinking:

Now for the pies I took out of the freezer to defrost this morning in an unaccustomed episode of forward thinking ...  :shrug:
