Re: Farangs who don’t wear face masks should be kicked out of Thailand says health minister

Back in the Uk now, got out just in time I think, very rarely see a mask. [Redacted]
When I left 3 weeks ago 90% of travellers and all staff at Swampy were wearing them.
Remains to be seen which country's population made the correct decision.

With the inevitable future burden on the Banks, is it time to think about withdrawing savings, Will some go bust, Is it time to buy gold.

Re: Why the nastiness?

There are also a few people on here that think they know it all and generally talk down to and ridicule other forumites contributions.
Self opinionated arrogant arseholes comes to mind. If an individual takes the above stance, unfortunately, people will take offence and react.

Re: Oh BOJO

The UK is still a member of the EU, as a fully paid up member who continues to contribute one would expect the EU to stand by its obligations and dip into any disaster fund and help one of its main net contributers.

Re: Poor air quality in Udon Thani

Its always bad this time of year, Sugar Cane burning, the old polluting trucks that take it to the processing plant, the dust in the air due to the lack of rain. The burning of the cane also helps to clear out all the dodgy criters that lurk within prior to cutting and why would you make yourself ex...

Re: Drill Bit Sharpening Service or Jig to do same

From my experience, it does'nt matter how much you pay for a drill bit at some stage it will get blunt, industrial, professionals dont use cheap tools, hence the need to resharpen. As i have said before a competant engineer, tool fitter etc would know how to resharpen a drill bit without a Jig and t...

Re: Drill Bit Sharpening Service or Jig to do same

Thank you gents, mostly UK purchased, time l sorted them out or got rid of. Those bought over here from Toolpro, Global etc not had any problems, they usually get blunted by my careless use, not down to poor quality, maybe if i was drilling into proper steel lt might be a different story.
