Use Faststone photo resizer. It's a doddle to use and once you put in the required resolution it remembers the setting.

Hi there, Howsitwork,

Plus 1 for Faststone resizer.

Not only can you re-size, you can also add captions and/or titles within your photo.  This helps explain the photo's place in the sequence of operations the post describes.  Alternatively, you can use the facility to 'watermark' your photos to protect them from being 'borrowed'! 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest design change-note!

+1 use this myself for all my pics, even in my pics albums & saves a lot of space on your hard drive. Worth downloading.

Might get to Ripon tomorrow afternoon. Sometimes useful , other times pointless but worth a wander

Bought this for £20 this morning at Pedham Place. It's barely used with just 2mm wear on the wheel but I don't need that anyway, it's being converted to a carbide lapping machine, the 350rpm is perfect for that.

Too damn cold today but anyone been bargain hunting recently? Got a few good things at club auction last week.  lovely lignum headed mallet for £2. Some carbide tips and small unused drills for £7 there were about 20 triangular tips for my face cutter so was quite chuffed. Also a complete wolf raft dowelling jig but I have disposed of that as didn’t need it. Oh and a Ruston 12” depth gauge for £20 with. 12” vernier thrown in.

Bob you been busy bargain hunting?

Belated happy new year.

I picked this up the other day its a Moore & Wright 2" - 100" inside mike with a 3/4" shaft. I have been watching it for about 6 years they had it priced at $800.00 Canadian but I finally got it for $290.00 even though the foam is turning to dust!

You know I have Ian.

Sorry guys been very slack for ages posting sometimes its best to stay away when in the mood I was/am in.

Not all machine related but all shed/workshop and to some enviable.

Firstly I got some top Blanks from Ian aka Howitworks. :D Cousin who came to visit playing courier.

Clamps, Dividing rotary table which was brand new in the box were additional tools took me a week to workout they were from the Sieg X2 Mill they was also selling. So some poor fellow is missing the tools and manual.

Old Matherson plane.

Plastic storage containers LOML picked up at Reverse garbage.

Sedgefield was always good because t I agree about weather. It’s NOT the place to go in rain or snow.

Maybe this weekend will be in improvement? :med:
