I agree with the general sentiment of others it seems like a shear pin, which I have done on the Harrison.   :Doh:

Glad your build is getting along despite the weather. I just wondered if you are breading Turkeys for Xmas? :)

Nevertheless, it's a sunny day, here, today, Norman, and the family and I are going to clean up and paint the boat. :ddb:


And should I find a damaged thread anywhere in the next few years I intend to do as one_rod has!

Hello,
        It's a bit late now but I have a routine that was whacked into me as an apprentice in that I never walk away from a machine until it is in neutral, E-stop engaged, lights off, DRO,(if fitted) off and power off, in fact everything needed to make the machine run put in a state that means everything has to be checked before it can be turned on. Apart from stopping me making a stuff up due to brain fade it also makes it very hard for  another person,(who should not be tu-tuing with my stuff anyway), to start anything.
  Above procedure takes seconds and has made me check and avoided mistakes when I have had to stop a job for unexpected reasons.
  I hope there is no serious damage but in consolation there is nothing like a reason to blueprint aye?

Hi Andrew,
      One of the simple pleasures in life, to me at least, is watching someone skilled in their work. One that sticks out to me was a tiler putting new tiles on our kitchen wall after the new stove, sink etc were installed.
      He was dealing the tiles onto the adhesive like playing cards. He would stop after 15 or so and sight along the wall to check for straightness and spacing. Very occasionally he would give one a gentle nudge then proceed.
      What he did in 45min would have been a day or so if I tackled it.
Good to see and read of your progress (adventures?),
John B
