    I have used a MIG and also Oxy/Acet for body repairs for more years than I care to recall.

    The basic difference to keep in mind is that MIG filler wire produces a very hard weld that is difficult to hand shape and finish, so the angle grinder is always close at hand. So you really need to do all your beating/shaping before the welding. But it is very fast, and you can quickly learn to contr...

    Great article. Thanks James. Corrected a misconception I've always held. I'd always believed BSC stood for British Standard Coarse but in fact it's short for British Standard Cycle. The only error I could spot was the statement that;

    "BSF (British Standard Fine) has the same thread angle as Whitworth but a finer pitch and smaller thread depth. Like Whitworth, it can be found on many Britis...

    Nigel: I'm very disappointed to see you descending to pulling the legs of other contributors.

    Hey Prop, I can see them and I didn't have to sign in.

    The green frog MFO 957 is Neil's, we had a long thread about his engine problems trying to get to Le Mans in June. Since then he has had to have it rebored and new pistons/rings etc. due to the first builder over honing the bores. In fact the second engine builder said it had been honed to oblivion. Any way, to cut a long story short it...

    Detection of non-payers will now be made by ANPR cameras. According to today's Telegraph these cameras are incorrectly identifying around 1.2million cars PER DAY!

    The other issue about not having a tax disk is knowing when it's due for renewal. If the letter doesn't arrive as a reminder I'm sure the argument wouldn't win in court.

    Undo the wheel nuts and drive in ever-decreasing circles, obviously in the correct direction!
    This is why F1 cars do that zig-zag action on the warm-up lap. THis ensures their wheels are not coroded onto the hubs.

    I bought a clarke 90 mig 15 years ago and have done full restorations on:- mg midget,morris 1000 van, land rover,morris minor and currently mg y type. My MOT tester always comments on the quality of my welding. The clarke has been no trouble at all.I use the one which uses gas and use co2 as used in pubs and it costs 20 for a refill which lasts me 18 months, hope this helps, Graham
