Re: So, when did they re-invent the spark-plug?

I agree modern cars are far more reliable and more efficient, but I do miss the days tuning up my straight six Triumph Vitesse, putting in overdrive and reconfiguring the rear axle to take the extra torque. MPG 30 to the English gallon if I was lucky but hells bells went like S*** off a shovel and ...

Were you previously able to do it at the BKK airport before June 15th?
You have never been able to get a tourist visa at any airport. You can only get a Visa Exempt entry, if your nationality permits (64 countries), or a Visa on Arrival for other nationalities (19 countries eg Chinese).

Re: 60-day tourist visa question

This is for a mate who's flying out on the 24th. How should he go about getting a 60-day tourist visa, please? EXAMPLE: in-person at the Thai Emb in London, the day before he flies He certainly should not wait that long. He must apply online for an e-visa so he should start now. http://www.thaiemba...

Re: Drill Bit Sharpening Service or Jig to do same

a competant engineer, tool fitter etc would know how to resharpen a drill bit without a Jig Most of the ones I knew would mostly use a jig (unless it was an emergency touch up to finish a job) as they knew that the correct jig, correctly used took off the minimum steel and kept the geometry of the ...

Re: usb stick?

In all probability Kingston doesn’t make 2GB memory stick now.
You can guarantee that any memory that is marked down as much as those are has an extremely high chance of being fake or rejected from the QC process.

Why are you so instant on 2GB?

Re: Drill Bit Sharpening Service or Jig to do same

Back in the good ole days drill bit sharpening was a skill and no such thing as a Jig, I recall spending hours practicing the art with just a Bench Grinder and my fingers as part of my apprenticeship training, Its all down to the angle of address and the rolling of the bit in yer fingers, the large...

1 month before
Up to 3 months before not 1.

But it’s usually a good idea to go just after as you get almost 1 year extra.

With no pictures or an approximation of how much lower than purchase price you think is reasonable and no idea how old they are you may get few, if any, calls.
