Re: Adjusting a slow running clock

I did a bit more digging around on the interweb and found everything you ever wanted to know about Smiths Jaeger time clocks except calibrating them so I bit the bullet and pulled it apart to see what makes it tick.

Re: Quick Quiz

My dad had a Weyman bodied Riley Monaco - he pushed it off a cliff rather than repair the rotting fabric.

Re: 2014 Photo Challenge

A selfie with your car and a man made structure or ruin of any type that is more than a 1000 years old e.g. Roman ruin, Dykes, Neolithic Barrows, Stone circles, Bronze age castles, churches etc. There are more than you might think in the UK!
