  1. Might be the commutator needs a clean, or as you say the brushes are worn right down and losing pressure. A very long lead of course reduces the voltage available at the motor, and hence the required current, although it doesn't usually result in a dead motor. Mines a 550W and measures about 15 ohm across the plug pins, a 380W will be a bit more than that. Plenty of carbon brushes available if you know the exact size.
  2. Thanks for the link, put an end to being dogged by the cat!
  3. Just out of interest, what wattage is the troublesome trimmer?
  4. On the two scientists that you mention, I don’t think (after a brief search) that they are truly neutral in their views. The Muslim scientists of the medieval period contributed greatly to science, at least until the Enlightenment. Also it is also claimed (as you do) that their religion afforded them a more rational approach to scientific study and thought than their Christian contemporaries in the West who were hamstrung with church doctrine. One of the greatest, if not THE greatest theory ever devised was by a man who, despite being steeped in the Christian culture and thinking of his time, let rational thinking and the evidence prevail over doctrinal beliefs, and that was Charles Darwin. To add: From the info I have found so far, the eye starts to develop at day 21/22, slightly before the inner ear.
  5. On the 4 examples that you have given, can you then show us the relevant extracts from the quran which you claim has advanced scientific understanding?
  6. They have to consider existing vehicles. Presently, the diesel nozzle is bigger than the petrol one.
  7. Some advice here: https://www.ebay.com/help/buying/returns-refunds/get-help-item-hasnt-arrived?id=4042
  8. Does this mean many of the newly re-surfaced roads and pavements are going to be dug up again?
  9. To do that on modern cars involves consulting manual and removing engine covers etc, yours probably just needed a jubilee clip unfastening and the pipe pulling off! A neighbour (back in 50/60s) had a big diesel car and ran it on a mixture of sump oil and paraffin. Those were the motoring days!
  10. My Peugeot 107 passed MOT shortly after the "event", but I haven't got away scot-free as "P 0420" shows up approx. every 40 miles, usually at light throttle in top gear. As a start, I inspected the top oxy-sensor (very clean), but the bottom one is proving difficult to undo even with a gas torch. I've read that the ECU can be re-set by disconnecting the battery for a short period.
  11. Certainly if it's a diesel engine. I've saved my contaminated fuel for cleaning engine parts etc, or lighting a bonfire.
  12. I had about 50/50 ( or somewhere near it) in my Peugeot 107, drove it a few miles home, misfired a lot, then drained/re-filled, cleared engine light, now its fine.
  13. A friend who worked in the sorting office says that the laser scanners can't (or don't) read the pre-decimal stamps.
  14. I've had cold uncooked honeycombe tripe with vinegar many times.
  15. I believe you can still use the ones with 1/2p on, as long as they're in multiples that add up to a whole number.
  16. The pubs can please themselves, I wouldn't pay it even at pre-lockdown prices.
  17. How would one know, or presume when an SSD is nearing "end of life"?
  18. Bear in mind Grace that the post was in 2006.
  19. Yes, previous to them (in that building, St. Mary's Gate) was Kerry's Bicycles
  20. Kilner Way just above the railway bridge. The idea of the post was to jog memories about the stores that had been on the site. Where exactly was the store?
  21. Never knew that. I believe there was also one on the end of Claywheels Lane, just behind Carphone Warehouse.
  22. Your memory is obviously better than mine! So, there would just be Halfords between Comet and the road. In the pic is Solo supermarket and Bridges Electrical, Target (Glynn Webb) on the right just out of shot, and to the left would be Halfords/Comet. I didnt know about this steam hammer: https://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;y12792&pos=324&action=zoom&id=126791
  23. You could be right, don't know where I got Jupiter from! tontopolass- I think Bridges was next door to Solo/Gateway supermarket?
  24. Glynn Webbs came much later and was up top on LH side.
  25. Looks like my post #23 photo of Cross Hunt St. VE party has expired, so I'm re-posting it.
