Re: Servo jitter and crosstalk

Try metalmuncher's idea with the ferrite ring. Could help.

I solved the tools trek problem by keeping a small tool box with screwdrivers, hammer, and craft knife in the house.
It lives at the bottom of a cupboard out of the way in a place approved by SWMBO.
Great idea! Toolbox now on Santa's list👍

Re: Bowaters Models - 16mm Rolling Stock Kits

I don't seem to be able to see the photos in the Bowater posts. All I get is an 'image' placeholder icon. Images from other posters appear ok . Is it just me or is anyone else getting the same?

War of the World's! I must dust off my vinyl copy and digitise it. Just hope it's not too scratched.

Re: Workshop/shed

....... every bloke needs a retreat when he’s in the doghouse and you’ve built yourself a deluxe doghouse. ;) Regards, Graeme Thanks Graeme. It's a bit of a fag when I have to venture outside each time I need a screwdriver or craft knife for something in the house, but it's a great retreat. I've be...

Sad times, Greg. Hopefully, services will be as buoyant as ever on the rest of the system.

Re: Workshop/shed

I do like to have things organised, Oh! so do I Rik, except I use a layered filing principle, one layer of junk on top of another !! I'm afraid to say I haven't seen the top of my bench in years. Instead I opened the drawers underneath and put scrap ply on them and start again. Terrible to admit, I...

Re: Workshop/shed

Completely, utterly, mind blowingly superb! The shed envy you felt, is nothing compared with mine right now - about an hour ago I was slightly nagged for using a kitchen worktop whilst a large piece of foamboard was gluing! Thanks Philip.

Re: Workshop/shed

It's a nicer workshop than mine, and mine took me much longer than 3m 43s to build too. Thanks. If only! I suppose it took about a month to construct and insulate the main structure, then a couple of weeks to erect the shelves and workbenches and move everything in. So about six weeks' work overall...

Re: Workshop/shed

Superb build Rik, I would feel very comfortable working in your shed, and very much at home with the organisation of tools, equipment and accessories neatly stashed away. You could easily start a trend here! I'll second what Philip said, that is one very comfortable looking work station Rik. Grant....
