Soooo, I needed to drill a hole in a decorative watermelon for the Mrs. last night (as one does), and managed to drill said hole without injury. While preparing to put the drill away however, I managed to knock my craft knife off the "workbench", and was the blade put away? And of all the available floor to fall on, did it have to choose the bit occupied by my bare foot?

Ouch!  we have a dangerous hobby  :)

I tried to put the supplied scale coupling hooks onto the buffer beams of my new Farish 4F, they both pinged off into the stratosphere and landed on my messy workbench. I doubt I will ever see them again. I sometimes think I should model in a larger scale.

This Saturday, a friend came to ask if I could run in his latest loco and fit the decoder. Well it ran in well and then came decoder fitting time. As I was prizing off the (Farish class 31) body one of the buffers fell off. I saw it drop vertically on to the carpet. It's so light if it bounced it could not have gone far could it ?

After more than an hour of searching I found it more than a metre from the drop zone !

Smiles and a beer all round !

Managed to electrocute myself 3 times with the static grass applicator last night! :doh:  It's surprising how much of a belt you get from them considering they only run on 2 AA batteries!


cheers, Stu.

Make sure you avoid puddles or wear wellies!!  :worried:

As an afterthought, PVA isn't quite so shocking!
