Atta Way MaxPete !
It was 60 here today and I thought that was "really F@CKIN’ cold".
It was 29F here today at 10 AM when I rode to the diner for breakfast. I would have left earlier but it was much too cold. It was a glorious ride.
HAH - I f@rt in the general direction of your 60 deg!
Sorry TJ - but that is simply NOT even close to cold.
OK - now that is getting to be a nice “fresh” morning Mr. TW. I’ll bet those first three coffees tasted pretty danged good!
In my defense it was 28 when I got up to go to work yesterday morning.
It's not the cold, it's the road salt.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Someone say Coffee?
Right there with you XS projecter guys. Hang in there, Winter solstice is only a week+ away
39*C here yesterday. That's 102* in your book boys. S'posed to be hotter today according to the bureau. Had to stop working on my fork rebuild because my hands were too sweaty to hold the tools. Around 4:00 we had a storm that dropped about 4" of rain in an hour. Trees down. power out, air- cons fail, electric trams stopped in the middle of the street. Sun came back out and it was like living in a sauna. Summer in Queensland and I'm on the southern end! Life is so diverse.
I guess it got donated, eh?
Sitting on an (expletive deleted) frozen concrete floor will freeze your rectal tissue which can be a severe health hazard if's used before it's fully thawed..
Let me suggest that you insulate your arse by sitting on a 2 foot by 2 foot piece of 2" thick rigid urethane foam board when working in the DCW.
Good thought Fred - I’ll remember that.
one could get ….Polar- roids?
Hmmmmm.....this looks interesting....
...looks pretty grimy and oxydized....
But my big Vessel #3 JIS driver had all of the spokes broken loose in just a few minutes and then I numbered everything and ran all of the nipples out with my drill-driver and a GoFast Innovations #3 JIS bit.
...and after pulling the bearings and few minutes in the vapour blast cabinet in the shop, WAH-LAH!
Now, I am not as fastidious a polisher as Mailman or our sorely missed friend RobinC, but I think that even I can make these parts look pretty nice!
Careful Pete, no matter how good you make them look you always want to make them look better.
Yeah, polishing is addicting.
Pete, how 'bout a little BRGreen in the hub 'tween the flanges?
like Jim sez, paint the hub BRG.
Then swing the hub in a lathe to turn bright edges and outer faces on the spoke flanges
and on the crests and crossbars of the between spoke flanges.
Than polish the brake plate "so it shines like an outhouse door on a frosty morning"
OK OK - you guys are trying to suck me into the "pretty bike" thingy - but I'm more a "its a motorcycle not a Faberge Egg" sort of guy.
There will be BRG - but it won't be on the hubs.
