I’m not sure what car they are for, something snazzy anyway. The long ones are M12 and the smaller ones are M10. The castle nut is M14 and a load of fun to make!

Pot Noodle

For the first time in my life I’ve just made a Pot Noodle for lunch, it should be called Not Foodle as it doesn’t even resemble food. I won’t be having another, and this undoubtably waves good bye any chance of interstellar exploration and colonization, who’s going to tell Steven Hawking that its going to take more than 100 years to digest this stuff? if anything like Pot Noodle is whats planned for cosmic safari then we won’t get far, imagine, the future of human kind hinges on Pot Noodle!

Titanium 5/16 UNF screws and bolts

A customer has recently bought a Harley and has had some wheels fashioned out of what look like dustbin lids, with separate hubs. These titanium 5/16 UNF socket caps are to hold the hubs together. Thankfully as its a bespoke design for the hubs it utilises normal size fasteners rather than bolts that could hold the Eiffel tower together!
