Re: So what are you up to during this enforced hobby time?

Hi
The oxygen generator (N2 scrubber) mentioned some pages back works direct into a miniature welding torch using butane propane mix.

I saw one in action today, not used it yet

Re: Spray washer

Hi
I've got 2 pressure washers, the cheap one was a fiver from a charity shop. It's good for the car but a bit fierce for the bikes.

The expensive one cleans paths by removing the top layer of cement

Re: Green hydrogen, the new fuel?

Hi
I suppose you could use excess solar power to separate water, compress the hydrogen (or absorb it into a hydride) then burn it to run an jet engine/generator on the same site when the sun goes in. That way no transport problems

Re: Sticking brakes

Hi
Thanks for every ones help but I could not solve it, so took it to a garage yesterday, diagnosis is that I had done everything right BUT the pads would not slide on the guide "pins". They went over what I had done and then removed the paint on the edge of the pads.

Great to have it back.
