looked at ebay Monday night Lion listing had ended :sad: assumed someone'd had a bargain :vissla: chap who had it couldn't tell me if it was ISO 40 Int. spindle, or one of the other tapers or morse even ? :???: .... didn't seem to know much about it at all .....I wanted 40 int. as I have plenty of tooling :vissla: ..... if he could've said for sure, I'd have took a chance, and hit BIN, when I first saw it, as the listing said it could be run up before collection :thumme:

guess where I was yesterday ? :grin:

What's left outside the pump, suitably modified as a guide to centre up the drill, to try and get t'other bit back out :huh:

bloody nightmare location to get at ..... was job for tomorrow sometime :vissla: ... after we get the heated vac mixer re-assembled, which is what I went there for yesterday morning. :huh:
hadn't been there 5 minutes and the maintenance guy at Simon's brother's factory was on the phone ... could he have some help with an auger feed. New auger flight had arrived and could not see HTF to fit it :???: :???: .... to replace a recently deceased flight
never having seen this thing before, let alone assembled I was scratching my head for a bit :idee:

Originalets URL: https://i1275.photobucket.com/albums/y450/v8druid/scans%202/WP_20190508_11_54_42_Pro_zpswmixndwq.jpg

specially as it seemed about 18" too bloody :aaargh: long Having learnt that the predecessor had been slung in the skip, we then spent half an hour looking for it :insomnia: ... well 2 minutes to find 95% of it and the rest looking for the tail that'd snapped off, necessitating a new one :lmao:

once I could see it I'd a better idea of how the new one ought to look and the bit that looked too long weren't far off .... :thummar:
ten minutes measuring up the drive system, which was still 15 ft above the factory floor and still wired in, Id sussed that things weren't as bad as they seemed :cool: ... the drive end was right ... but the flight was too long over all :sad: :sad:

so assembled the business end .... :smile:

and job sorted :hurra: ..... whilst the maintenance guy and Simon were still pondering HTF I'd arrived at the 230mm :vissla: that had to come off :smile: ... before we'd actually re-assembled it (I'd worked it at 235 mil - but was close enough) :vissla: :thumme:

left the maintenance guy and his side kick to hump this back into spot and fit the hoppers :huh: .... we had a date with a vac mixer and the day was disappearing quick :uupps: :uupps:

beautiful building this is all in :cool: ... prob.s about 2/3 of an acre of concrete with a lid on :vissla: .... the guys who laid the concrete achieved a near mirror surface on it apparently :thummar: .... then the guys who came to paint it, said "way too smooth" and scarified the bloody lot .. badly :aaargh: ..... it is some shed !! :cool: :thummar:

(the bench'll need some forks to assist it out the door with its current 'occupants', so's I can relocate them too .. the area is bigger than it looks in the pix and said m/c'll fit fine) :vissla:

......ready for a Lion :smile: ..... it'd re-appeared on an auction listing this time 500 quid cheaper than the BIN listing previously :cool: Guy had gotten back to me with the news that it was deffo an ISO 40 int quill taper :thummar: and I'd said I'd have it .... :hurra:
Call later in the day to say he'd got someone local wanted to come view it too :sad: ..... "would he hold it for me if I sent him a 10% deposit, direct transfer now ?? " :vissla:
er... he'd said he could come look at :aaargh:

Spoke to the seller late tuesday night... had the local been? :vissla:
he had, but didn't leave any deposit and wanted to come back wednesday with his biz partner first ..... " so you still won't take my deposit and I collect it Friday "? NOPE :aaargh: :sad: :sad:

Hadn't heard from him wednesday but he'd ended the listing, so either the local'd had it :huh: :sad: ... Or I'd get a call this morning for my deposit .??? Hmmm!! so it was fingers crossed ...... one sweet machine .... especially for £2k :thummar: :cool:



someone winge-ed the other day, that I never take any pix from this angle .... so just for them ...... :grin:

The red thing in the middle :skratta3:

Text last night at 11:30 ..... the local had been and paid for the Lion :sad: :sad: :sad: ..... hardly surprising .. want his arse kicking if he hadn't :huh:
don't come along like that very often :vissla:
email from the seller today to say - thanks for the interest and " Spoke to the original importer told me they were made in Taiwan he imported over 300 and only had call outs to 20"
?
so back to trawling again :vissla: :sad: .... have another make/model in mind ....... or another lion, praps :smile: ... the Taiwanese Bridgeport copies (some on steroids) were all pretty solid tools :cool:

You better keep them (the measuring tools/shim-stock) in a safe place, to prevent easy retrieval, in case of new offers.... :grin:

Posty interrupted getting the VA-r onto the 'Drema, :vissla: for some pallet shuffling, with the forks, so's I could get at the edge of the patch that needed the drainage ditch clearing ready for some clean 40mm :smile:

new dumper's not as mobile as they usually are :sad: .... and with 70mm pins doesn't fit under the VA-r :idee: ... bit of a PITA, when I needed to shift it ....
so gave this a try :thumme:

even if I could pick up the 7 footer with the VA-r .... a tonne of bucket and half a tonne of VA-r would be pushing it a bit, :smile: where it was going and not really enough room to get it all down in there !!! :sad:

as usual the co-pilot was 'in residence' :skratta3: ..... another PITA when you want to move :vissla: .. have to make sure I know where he is ... daft enough to lie under my wheels :uupps: :uupps: ... getting old, love him and losing the plot a bit !! :sad:

this edge has pee-ed me off since we've been here .... :aaargh:
was the builders dumping ground ... :aaargh:
last bit to level off and they buried all sorts of crap in there .... :aaargh: :aaargh:

well I use the term buried very loosely ... :vissla:
sticking out is more like it. :sad:

to date i'd had a large barbecue, a barrow body and frame, loads of bits of old sleeper, a bed frame and God knows what else out of there !! :uupps: :sad:

I'd now got it to the stage it was re-fillable :thumme: .... getting the fill there had been an issue, 'til I'd hit on the 7 foot bucket idea :idee3: and it's worked well :cool: :thummar:

two bucket loads and Pam had had enough .... :grin:

there's another filled 7 footer sat on the patch tonight, :vissla: ready for tomorrow, but it'll have to wait 'till later in the day .... Pam's off to see Ken & Doug (her elderly cuz,s) in the morning and I'm hoping to go eyeball a milling machine :hurra: ... in Abergavenny !! :hurra: :hurra:
Not exactly what i really want, but is very tidy, well tooled, viewable under power and is 8 miles away ... life's a compromise !! :vissla:

the channel is coming along nicely .... :thummar:

now for a load of clean 40mm to fill it back up with, accompanying a cable duct at the back of the channel .... which i mustn't forget to put in first !!! :uupps:

BUT ..... there's a well stuffed bucket awaiting our attention first :sad: .... hopefully the last one !!! :svettas: ..... 45 barrow loads to date .... circa 3+ tonnes .... plus tomorrow's heaped 7 footer :help:

really hope this is as tidy as it looks .... :vissla:
only down side is it's R8 spindle and I would have preferred an ISO 40 Int. .... :sad:
however .... there's a very good selection of R8 tooling and holders with it, so .... we'll see ? :vissla:

we'll see tomorrow hopefully :thummar:

cross your fingers for me

well last Thursday morning I decided before getting much further with the soiling and blending in that the one small 'rock' that i was forever avoiding with the mower ought to come out the ground, as I was not gonna have enough cover over it ...... 'rock' be ****ed ... !!!!!

with no chance of getting mechanical handling anywhere near it
.... it had to have it .... with a sledge

lot of the smaller stuff went back in there ... had to get filled with summat ... the bigger stuff's retaining a lot of it at the end .... and is nicely buried too. Would like to meet the tw*t that buried that lump of road there ..... if they'd only gotten it flatter ..... anyway
.... it''s coming along, after yet another bucket load yesterday afternoon ..... after I'd recovered from wielding said sledge ... 'spirit's willing, but yon flesh ain't what it used to be'

find some suitable stone to finish off/cap what's retaining the far end and ''Bob's yer uncle''
.... bit more lawn to mow
.. after it's settled and either been seeded or turfed


obviously the guy with the miller weren't available that day -- hence the tango with the tarmac ..... but he was friday morning ..... if I really wanted a Bridgy, this 'un'd do very nicely .... that said ..... I was high bidder on it ATM, but expected it to go for a lot more, unless I was intended to have it
.... if it dropped in my lap, it'd do for now, 'til I can lay hands on summat better, with a 40mm quill ..... it'd be bought at a level that'd sell on nicely, or not get had
... I had a figure at which I was out and know what they make for a move on, if it landed. ..... still gutted about last year's near miss with the Ajaxs and that Lion a few weeks ago .... summat'll pop up ....

had been inquiring after a very tidy Semco, 'til I realised it didn't tilt/nod and the turret didn't swivel .... guy had taken some very carefully composed pix - dealer who'd probably dropped one, when he acquired it ... very nice, but essentially just a vertical miller, with a ram head.
...... lawn massacred yet again yesterday evening ..... before it rained Friday


.... jury's still out on that one ?

view off the top of a box
'Sposed to have been dry again on the saturday and TBF, didn't had a lot last friday, so yon channel got extended some more after I'd found some stone to edge yon lawn extension with, ready to finish that edge off with a bit more soil. ... got a home for anything left over too, so I can get the channel finished off down to join my drainage system just to the left of the black shed ...

a.n.other unusual view of that,.... off a box top

had a gander an' was still top bid, on the miller, with a way to go ...... hmmm! .... interesting ... someone else ran me up pretty swiftly earlier, but well below where I'd go to on it .... and if it went it went .... if it came it'd make a stop gap for now

Ebay really pisses me off ..... looked at the bidding history ... I was top bid and it was the same as a.n.other bidder, but mine was the earlier auto bid, so I was top bid ..... upped the limit a few quid and bugger me ALTHOUGH I am top bid the bastards increased the top bid, which was mine anyway .. did however mean anyone else was gonna have to top that amount ... plus my upper max. ....... then I was out I thought .... 'bout where I valued it, for summat that doesn't really tick all the boxes for me

Well I was out ...... if anyone fancied a tidy bridgeport, I'd eyeballed it and it's tidy with a reasonable tooling cab too .... taper just wasn't what I wanted, at R8 .... drilling much more than 20 mm'll load it significantly ... bloody good miller though

this came up early saturday .... no idea 'who's' it was ... never seen one like it before .... looks to be #3 MT taper, from the extra pix the seller sent me .... 'twas a bit of a beast for 3MT .... old, but SOLID

was In Stafford and a grand to own it ..... hell of a 'ram' on it

looked like a scrappy/recycler's yard ..
Clarkson autolock collet chuck, but no drive keys so not ISO30 ... only leaves MT .... which was a lot more common decades ago .... which is what this looks to be ....
guessing 50s/early 60s looking at it, 'praps older ....... it was bloody solid and could even be 4MT looking at the pic .... never seen a 4 though, usually 2 or 3

as for yon Bridgeport .... of the opinion I was run up about 500+, quid from where I jumped in at 700 quid ....
whoever was doing the running for him, ended up with it, when I left him to it at £1270 .....
I'd either get a phone call saying the bidder has dropped out or he'd relist it ....

watched and bid on too many ebay auctions not to be able to spot when I'm being played/run up ..
and have to admit to having done it a few times myself for friends .... the art is knowing when to stop

so .... back to the 'gardening'
having gotten the soil as far as I could with 4 bucketfuls = 60 barrow loads, I needed some edge retention .... enter one yankee crossing sleeper 10 ft x 12" x 7" ... and bloody heavy .... had to crank up the 'Drema to extricate it from a pile of stuff.

having gotten it onto a sack truck and down the patch ...... I was knackered so recruited the wheel barrow for the final 60% of the journey

barrow it all to spot and then start all over again, once i've gotten the VA-r back on !!! 7 th time that day, on and off ...

no 6 sat waiting it's turn on the patch wed.s afternoon ...

Pam's keep fit/circuits night so she disappeared at 4.30 and i spent an hour re-shuffling a few pallets
... again and a couple of buckets ...
that Hill's jaw gripped and picked this up no sweat ..

then it was time for yet more mowing ....
did the side of the drive Tuesday night - lawn again wed.s night and swept the previous nights mowings from the Dane, off the side of the drive with the Countax's sweeper / collector

finished just as Pam returned in time for a late tea.

lawn extension looking OK ... now to suss the last bit of it

for the first time ever, yesterday, I had to drop a union off on the VA-r to make a connection to the dipper ... (mental note to self )---- don't leave it parked directly in the midday sun .... no way were the FF QCs gonna budge .... one to remember, ... even though I always drop the pressure off the lines, before disconnecting it, but it was so warm yesterday the VA-r was very hot to the touch, after sitting in the sun for a couple of hours

Bucketful no six went down yesterday .... don't often see one of these out yer kitchen window

less walking, with the barrows, from this point for a.n.other location needing some dirt ..... got the 'lawn extension' topped off with some 'riddled' stuff ....

took me bloody ages, but worth the effort ... all I have to do now is have stern words with the cats .. stop 'em digging it back up


these guys suddenly appeared from behind the treeline in quick succession ..... only just managed to get me phone out to catch the last one as he sped away ...

chasing his mates who'd been over a few seconds earlier

not quite 'nap of the earth', but they weren't far off it and when they passed Pam, up at her cuz's place a few seconds later, up the valley they were heading up, she was above them, looking down on 'em

had two of these Ospreys come over on the same route yesterday, playing 'silly buggers' with the deck - they were bloody low ... too slow with the phone yesterday for a pic

[youtube][url="https://youtu.be/hUNJTAybCQQ"]https://youtu.be/hUNJTAybCQQ[/url][/youtube]

didn't know they folded up like that
have had Chinooks over the house before now, so low you'd think they were gonna land on the lawn ..... seem to use our roof ridge as a reference for NOE flying .. them and the Herc.s

Unusual to see the patch devoid of a big yeller fing

was supposed to be doin' the last twenty feet of me drainage channel today, -- needed to avoid hitting me 70mm cable ducting and two water pipes already in there part way up the patch ... (can just see the duct coil, bottom right, above) ... or I will be PO-ed .... then I'd better get on to me stone man for an eight wheeler's worth and get it filled back up

that was yesterday's plan

didn't happen that way today though .... been a looong day.

Pam's oldest cuz, who's been real unwell for several weeks, following yet more treatment for cancer, has not had a good day.
Although his brother has been doing his best to care for him, together with a lot of input and visits from pam and I ... plus the attentions of the local district nurses and carers from one of the cancer support charities, decided today that he needed to go into a hospice for more intensive care .... and to give his brother, et al some relief from the responsibilities of it all. Sorting that today has been pretty intense, but we managed it and he now has 24/7 care ... and his bro. who is mid 70s can have some rest, physically at least.
TBH I can't see Ken coming home again sadly.
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!! :uupps:
