Hi Sam, thanks for your reply. apologies the original post was a bit grumpy,woke up with computer headache. and using my phone browser is not the smoothest for the forum.i sympathize that there has to be some tangible correlation between the instructable and the contest into which its entered.and that humans have to go through the many submissions. while being creative i follow my inspiration. i work for myself. I do not see a rug contest and think i must build a rug, Im quite happy with my current hairstyle..Competitions are a nice incentive to publish my work. sometimes i struggle to find a competition that can be applied to what iv made,i often look at the other entries to see how far left-field Im approaching it from. some of the connections i have made in the past can be considere...see more »Hi Sam, thanks for your reply. apologies the original post was a bit grumpy,woke up with computer headache. and using my phone browser is not the smoothest for the forum.i sympathize that there has to be some tangible correlation between the instructable and the contest into which its entered.and that humans have to go through the many submissions. while being creative i follow my inspiration. i work for myself. I do not see a rug contest and think i must build a rug, Im quite happy with my current hairstyle..Competitions are a nice incentive to publish my work. sometimes i struggle to find a competition that can be applied to what iv made,i often look at the other entries to see how far left-field Im approaching it from. some of the connections i have made in the past can be considered a bit thin. but that can be also considered a positive,approaching a problem from an unexpected angle.i even got a grand prize from one of those connections. for a while now it feels like i cant enter a competition without having to email service@instructables. and that only answers that are totally straightforward to the question are accepted now . im just trying to get to the root of whats causing this frustrating blockage of flow. Could it be my use of embedded video in steps.that doesn't look good on the app,but works well on computers. has the instructables in site video thingy improved since i last tried to use it. or is just my sense of humor not compatible with the moderators.my recent valentines day special instructable,submitted for three contests,with no expectation of storming the gates and nabbing all the prizes. i thought had a good chance of being rejected from one or two, but all three, ouch. tool contest "create a tool that aids in making something else. It can be a tool for the workshop, your craft room, the kitchen, or anywhere else where it's needed."i made an electric igniter,to light a hob to make coffee etc paper-craft contest, "There are so many ways to utilize paper in your projects and we want to see what fun and unique ways you can come up with."i used a paper/card matchbox as its casevalentines day contest. "show off your handmade gifts, food, decorations, or anything else you are preparing for this special day!"i made it for the reveal on valentines day, video uploading and editing took much longer than expected, so it got published on the 15th. iv skimmed my emails for rejected examples over the past year. I used a bag to reupholster a bike saddle, rejected from the use a bag contest.my customized golf club to make things easier in rough weather,rejected from the outside contest.i built a lathe out of my friends scrap plywood, rejected from the wood contesti made a shiny futuristic desk lamp , rejected from the space contesti made a beautiful book (574fav 29000views) ,rejected from last years valentines contestif you've got this far , congratulations ,most of my tutors at university expressly hated reading my written work . and i wasn't expecting to write this much on this topic.kind regards george.
im rather amused by this, nice one.

Electric Kiln -- Top Loader
been making an embossing stamp. with lead. how does pewter compare with lead. in terms of detail hardness and melting point. I'm not fussed about alleged toxicity issues because I was born in the 80s so iv built up a resistance.

I had the cupboard with most of the bits missing. I later got the circular saw attachment that didn't inspire confidence. the drill press is quite good. I got parts of the sander base in different locations
its a black and decker horizontal drill stand . you may need a old black and decker drill to fit it. it looks more solid than it is. apologies for the late reply. I'd be interested to see your results
thank you for your kind comment. apologies for the late reply. this was one of my more stressful structables. showing that sending it off for repair is not always the best solution.
this is it on the bike

what a beast, a little confused as to how tilt steering works or doesnt work. netherthe less its good work and an entertaining and educational instructable ,
Thanks for the input. I have not addressed the rear Cog yet. Have been playing around with exhaust system. made the red one , might make an instructable of it. While I was waiting for the banana pipe to arrive. changed the fuel tank for a narrow rear mounted one. got a better fuel line. and made a better front engine mount. now the new air filter touches to seat tube and the top tube. don't seem to have a picture of my improved chain tensioner on this phone the one of eBay had an incredibly weak spring.. What's porting the engine? and how would I go about changing the ht lead when it appears to be sealed into the potted coil unit?

pixlr is being fishy on firefox, freezing when saving. ps the only extra iv got running on ff is ublock and nothing else, ff flash and java up to date and its still using loads of memory. 250000k 2 email tabs this help page and the instructable editor.

oh my goodness, barely getting my head around it myself, i did it a long time ago. you just trying to get the power thing running.? if you post some pictures i can try to annotate for you, as some models of power supply may differ.
been reading up on uk regs, looks like its supposed to have an dvla inspection, and it falls under the classification of motorbike rather than assisted bicycle, than its get a log book numberplate tax and insurance, and im not sure if i need a cbt on top of my full drivers licence. Also its supposed to have a mirror on a specific side and a headlight with a dipped diffusion patturn. Driving without insurance attracts a chunky fine and other nastiness from the law. think i will stick to private land to mess with mine , unless im feeling flush,also tax is continous otherwise an annual sorn notification has to be made with details of its location, im putting a coaster on the back and a disk on the front,using an aluminium frame and slick skinny tyres..
