  1. Wheeler Dealers did a "Rat Rod" in one of their episodes:-
  2. If you have a suspended ceiling hang some in the roof space as also.
  3. Brilliant - Well Done Wish my kids were that inventive, they only know elecronic components from the outside.
  4. And there is the problem. 21 year old son with no sense of responsibility.
  5. Yacht sunk off Railay Beach, Krabi

    Wouldn't /shouldn't a boat have an automatic bilge pump?
  6. As "pgrahmm" those cheap A/C are not actual air-cons, They blow out water that feels cool but will make every thing damp. OK for desert conditions but here inLOS there is enough humidity in the air without adding to it. The actual portable A/C are not very efficient or very practical, not worth the money. There have been several threads on here about the subject, try a search. You can't beat a split unit for efficiency and price. If you plan to stay for some time talk to the landlord maybe he'll share the cost.
  7. Fitting heater in D-Max

    Guess I was bored enough to bother with doing a search Here's the guy claiming to have actually had it done:- https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/890045-heater-conversion/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-10630268 Try messaging him, if he's still arround.
  8. Probably nothing to do with this incident. Many years ago in Kenya when international Jumbo pilots made stopovers in Nairobi they would sometimes wander down to the local flying club and get some of the local "Kenya Cowboys" let them fly their small planes "just to keep their hand in" Obviously they were all seasoned pilots and quickly got back into handling a small plane, except when it came to landing. They were used to sitting 30 odd feet off the ground in the Jumbo cockpit that their ground perception was a bit off when landing a small plane so near the ground. There were a few close calls but, as far as I recall never an accident. As I said probably nothing to do with this story but maybe an interesting anecdote for some.
  9. Hatari Fan Bearings

    That reminds me. My hammer drill feels like it could do with a new bearing, drill bit wobbling all over the place. Project for the near future
  10. Hatari Fan Bearings

    Had to go to my usual "Magic" shop today and while there asked about a 608-Z bearing. Ofcourse they had not just one but a choice of two, one at 45Bt. and a genuine SKF at 125Bt. Not having had the opportunity to buy something absolutly genuine for a long time I felt a bit reckless and paid out for the SKF. It's still in it's sealed little plastic bag Part No. 608-2RS1/C3 Made in Italy. The bearing is sealed on both sides with what appears to be rubber instead of the metal on the ones I got yeterday from the Mom& Pop shop or on the Hatari origional. Seems a shame to use the genuine SKF for just a room fan, seems like it should belong on a skateboard or something serious. Perhaps I'll just frame it and hang it on the wall as a reminder that a real world is still somewhere out there.
  11. Photo separation.

    On Foxit reader you can take a "snapshot" of the area you want to keep then, as it's a graphic, paste it into Paint or any other graphic program.
  12. Fitting heater in D-Max

    As far as I recall someone on here did actually have a heater fitted to their motor. I can't remember the exact cost but it was not cheap. Maybe they will read your post and answer or you could try a search of the forum. At the time I took a note of the Web page of the people who did the fitting for future reference. (see below) I know you specifically asked for no second hand information, and I don't blame you for that, but as nobody has replied yet you could do worse than contacting the Web Site. http://siammotorworld.com/
  13. Hatari Fan Bearings

    Success! My first stop was to a Mom and Pop Amorn type shop that I had only recently discovered while looking for a timer for Panasonic washing machine. Showed Mom the picture with the part number and she knew straight away what I wanted. So confirms all you need is the part number to get the part. I bought 2 bearings as spares and maybe next time if one of the old fans with bush bearings needs attention I'll see if the ball bearing can replace the bush and possibly save many bush cleaning operations in the future. Also tried the real Amorn shop just for future reference but they "nohab". Thanks "Crossy" for the links will keep a note of them especially the skateboard ones, those little guys should outlast any fan. "Issangeorge" Couldn't find any reference to bearings on your Hatari link - https://www.hatari.co.th/en/parts - but useful just the same for other parts which I'm sure will become necessary at some time in the future.
  14. Worst Joke Ever

    A guy out on the golf course takes a high speed ball right in the crotch. Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground. He finally gets himself to the doctor. He says, "How bad is it doc? I'm going on my honeymoon next week and my fiancee is still a virgin." The doc said, "I'll have to put your penis in a splint to let it heal and keep it straight. It should be okay next week." So he took four tongue depressors and formed a neat little 4-sided splint, held together with surgical wire. It was an impressive work of art. The guy mentions none of this to his girlfriend. They marry and on their honeymoon night in the motel room, she rips open her blouse to reveal a gorgeous set of breasts. This was the first time he ever saw them. She says, "You are the first, no one has ever touched these breasts. " He pulls down his pants, whips out his splinted cock and says, "Look at this beauty, it's still in the CRATE!"
