I learnt something today. I thought I had a fancy protractor for measuring brass fitting seat faces (SAE 45o versus 37o AN versus the funky 60o Lucas) on old carbs and fuel kit. Never knew it was a contact goniometer  Smiley

Cheers,
Harv

Me too Harv, I have an Engineers Protractor in my kit of tools.

I doubt anybody would use a second hand screen now, especially with scratches / marks.

I did do some work for "Found Object" this weekend - I made a profile of the U-section in front of the LHR wheel arch as an aid to reassembly after I cut the rotten bits out:



There are times when having a geologist as father helps.  The device at centre bottom is called a contact goniometer.  It measures the angle between crystal faces, but any solid object will do.  With the goniometer and a tape measure, I could transfer the profile of the U-section onto cardboard.  And when the major dimensions come out as multiples of 1/4", it's a fair bet that the chassis engineer designed the profile that way.

Distractions (again) - Helper Spring.



Do not laugh.

I broke the left rear spring in my Humpy in June, and now that I can go more than 5 km, I can get the replacement springs rebuilt.  But how to put the car back on its feet and keep it mobile when one back spring's been removed?

Rubber door stops, from Bunnings. Put a bolt through them, put it into a drill, and use a file to machine them down. Sandpaper smooth, still in the drill. Remove bolt, slit rubber, put onto rattle rods and superglue the slit.

Cheers,
Harv

I turned some up on a lathe out of rubber block, using a 4" angle grinder (as a lathe tool) to remove excess rubber.  Then cut the rods, fitted the rubber cushion/slides and welded the rods back up.  Filed and re-painted you can't tell the difference.
