Sorry if I'm asking a daft question but is somebody intending to tun a brass screw against the magneto commutator if yes then the screw will wreck it.

Carbon brushes are they only way.

Work
Sitting at home having 2nd breakfast and still in dressing gown
The downside, in an hours time I will be forced to leave the warmth of home to visit our capitol for yet another hospital visit, so much for the NHS being free, It costs me 30 to get there, once a fortnight.

That's what they call it, but being on maintenance it normally involves sitting drinking tea 99% of the time

Hope the appointment goes well.

Likewise, bored out of my skull as usual.

Spend far more time on the forum when here than when I'm at home - always something more interesting to do there!

I've used brass domed head woodscrew with threads cut off and soldered up the slot.

You can get a kit here - need to check size of bakelite cap.

Been to the hospital for blood test this morning, got a hospital appointment to see Orthotist for a fitting for new shoes tomorrow, today I'm repairing a Honda powered tree chipper, the pull cord snapped, so that I can chip tree branches I cut down yesterday so that I can get to main trunks, now using it to clear a path so that Tree Fella's can take main tree down as me my chainsaw and I are not going to be able to support 6" trunks while I cut the base of the tree, it can only fall one way and I will be in that place so getting professionals in to do it.
Ripped a hole in my trailer floor at the weekend, it needed replacing, job is now top of list.
Stuart, When I was on maintenance we always made sure there was homework in our benches to fall back on, it wasn't frowned upon as long as we had no work.
Enjoying cup of tea before I go outside.
Just remembered, I deliver Parish news to houses in our Crescent once a month and soon to go on a Speedwatch course with local police so that us villagers can monitor the speeding bar stewards who don't understand the concept of 20 and 30 mph speed limits through the village.
