  4. Really interesting to have followed this thread as today I have a letter from my gas supply company , the meter on my household supply needs to be replaced. All good, but then they go on to say the ‘full installation “ needs to pass a compliance test after they replace the meter. If it fails the system will need to be repaired to compliance! At least I now understand the implications….
  5. AIS track is curious…

  11. Just checking in on the current best practice for washboards . Currently have 2, looking to go to 3 as part of the process. Currently have ply, considering the acrylics for the new ones. What’s the good, bad an ugly out there ?
  12. Hi I need to adjust some rig tension. They are Graham screws and on my first attempt they felt very very tight.I was able to loosen for-stay, so the rig tension was relaxed. Do I just carry on with force to break the lock/binding or fill with WD40 for a couple of weeks an try again? Thanks for ideas.
