Specifying PFS...Not PAR helps!
Asking for PARFS makes it better.....that's if you go to a decent timber supplier ;)


Talked to Nicks Timber of Gloucester. No BS, good service and significantly cheaper than DIY stores. ;)

I think burying ones loved one with their tools is always a good thing, just let us know how the service goes and the hole looks big enough for her and siblings if any.
A nice touch with the balcony, so you can sit and raise a glass to those newly departed.

Good man.

Makes my patio look a bit shit, but it does the job. ;)

What larks young Pip? ;) I can’t fit my spare XB headers until l finish filing the inside with a drill extender or round file of suitable abrasive ability so no point rotating the engine. My wood will not be available at the timber yard until next week. Think I’ll play hi-fi tweaks for a bit. ;)

Roksan very conveniently print user manuals for their more expensive decks online, which show sections and plans of how they are put together........or how to copy them! lOl The £7,500 TMS 3 record player is no longer available new, but there are still upgrades for owners......and ideas for tweakers like me who own earlier Roksan decks. You can buy an old Xerxes for around £500 them make many of the other TMS parts. The internal isolators are standard industrial supply parts and some of the latest rubber grommets are in standard computer hard drive kits online. A whole set of isolators for the deck would only cost around £70. The only snag is that the infamous set of Roksan’s own 3 TMS suspension ‘blobs’ will set you back £263 now, but l got a set for half that 5 years ago. I’m sure that in time l could suss out where they came from.

So what are Roksan offering as a TMS 3 upgrade now? Solid brass mass damping pucks to fit into the base board to increase the signal to noise ratio. Now this is something l can do more easily. I did this to a lesser degree in the sub chassis of my Walker deck, so now I’m experimenting with heavy door stop castings bolted into recesses cut into the sub chassis. Later when l can get some solid brass pucks machined l will try these in my tweaked Roksan Xerxes. Then what larks? It’s a day of tweaking. lOl

25th May sun is shining, Honda in the garage & I'm doing this.
Just trying to give you an indication of how boring that Honda is to ride.
Arms will be like jelly tonight after swinging that 13lb sledge hammer for a day.
Just got to negotiate the jobsworths at the dump it site with bags of rubble afterwards. Only allowed 2 56lb bags seemingly, I think that's only if they see you though.
Have a great day folks. JB

A friend was given one of those while her Triumph 675 was being worked on. I had a brief ride of the Honda and the Triumph. Not sure which was worse, but at least the Triumph was a bit different. :|

Took the misses`s golf trolley apart because of it`s little swim in the golf course`s lake, battery full of water. Greased the wheel bearings and dried out battery. It goes , but put the wheels on the wrong sides so it wouldn`t pull :roll: All okay now and pulls like a good un .
