Well back on topic  :bang: I'm amazed that no one has mentioned what is wrong with the lathe in the video  :Doh:

I can also say from checking, that this site is an absolute rarity on the Internet, since NoScript reports that there are NO third party scripts on the forum. Also nothing for AdBlocker to do, either. This site is pure discussion with no hidden software agenda, and open to read by all.
I love it when a Plan B comes together!

I didn't doubt that. But it still means with some careful Google searching anyone could find my posts on here if they wanted to. It's nothing too dire but it just runs against what I got used to when I first started posting online.

It also means I need to be more careful with what I say! Which maybe isn't a bad thing. But for example, there's a few times i've complained about a certain railway museum (which I really did enjoy going to for he most part, just a couple of people were hard to deal with), and that's all up on the internet for anyone to see. Chances are someone going to that museum probably also reads this forum too and those stories might get me into trouble if I ever went back.

Doesn't one of the Myfords do that?

I had to log in to post that  :( amazed I could remember it.

So how many engineering sites have you registered with just so you could see the pictures? Is that any worse than farcebook? Real pain when you cant' find the scrap of paper. And do you really give true date of birth and location?

If mail systems are scanning email I'm going to start adding a few suitable words as my signiature to improve my spam. Fed up with blinkin' shed adverts.

Slightly off topic :scratch: But check out this guy for excellent scale machinery

Phenomenal! I wish I had 1% of this guys skill.

Please remember chaps, this topic was started to draw attention to achievements to be celebrated - exchanges of views about about Facebook and other social media are way  :offtopic:

Once after trying a lot of different passwords to use a site just once for a file I typed  "this call is from canada"  that was accepted.  I hate picking passwords!
