I've been in the same situation recently...sometimes I go out to the garage, shuffle motorcycles, lawnmowers and boxes of parts around for an hour so I can get to the part of the car I want to work on...then run out of time, or end up back where I started. Sometimes the whole project feels like a giant "move-the-block" puzzle.

haha thats brilliant Doc.. Now all you need to do is persevere, and continue uploading. Before you know it, you'll be a Youtube celebrity, and the videos will start paying for this journey!

Doc, that safety washer looks too small to prevent the separation of the ball & housing. Am I wrong?

your not wrong, and the bolt should be a nyloc but I just wanted to put a part on..... more on the way later this week.... with slightly longer runtime....

I feel like a child who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.... for bolt read nut. Thanks Frank for pointing out my mistake, I'm sure it wont be the last. Six hours of teaching databases can do that to anyone. Oh and he also told me to grease my nuts... well that's tonight's entertainment sorted ;-)

Yeah, I like it.. I hope you keep it up! It will take a little while before it starts to take off, but this topic should bring lots of people!
 
Nice one Andy. Every session in the shed is another bit closer. I managed to get stuck into one of the wiper motors that i have and will update shortly.
