  1. I'd seen those before and just thought they were some sort of cheapo, infomercial type product, however, I'll have a look into. I do suspect that the overall diameter will prevent me from using it as the nuts are very close to the manifold pipes. I've also found 'Metrinch' that bears on the flats and not the corners. Thanks for the idea. Tom.
  2. I'm trying to remove the last three nuts from my Zafira B manifold/catalyst combo and unfortunately they are stuck and I can feel them starting to give on the corners. Is there an alternative socket design (I'm using a standard 10mm hex socket) that will have better purchase on the nut, maybe a socket that applies pressure to the flats? Would a suitably sized Torx socket work? I've also heard of 'Milli Inch' sockets that work on both mm and inch fasteners and apply pressure to the flats but I can't find any trace of them. Do you know of them, have I got the name right? Any ideas? Tom.

    Ok, thanks for the reassurance. Tom.

    Today I received a sexy email, see below. Not overly concerned but that is my principle email it came to and the password was assigned to a website I'm signed up to (www.kitmaker.net). I have changed the password to that website. What else should I be concerned about? Tom. p.s. their claim is only partially true, I only have a webcam connected for Skype. Lawrence Martin <Quinn@asidd.com> I know M*********** is one of your password on day of hack.. Lets get directly to the point. Not one person has paid me to check about you. You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email? in fact, i actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult porn) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean). When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam. immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account. after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you. Best solution would be to pay me $1058. We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video. My -BTC -address: 15FgUnD6dN6EadfrRqvCj4ZUZCjCcCaVCz [case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it] You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google). if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too. I have taken care of my actions. i am not looking to ask you for a lot, i simply want to be paid. if i do not receive the bitcoin;, i definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on. Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately. If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends. it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message.
  5. Unfortunately that's out of my field of expertise, however, would it explain why I didn't get an email for your latest reply, in this thread, but I received an email notification for this thread, which comes under all new post notifications in the Tech section: Cheers, Tom
  6. Nice One. I'll have a look at Farnells and maybe put a couple in parallel. Cheers, Tom.
  7. Also, no notification for this THREAD and your reply to this very thread. Tom.
  8. Cheers, I'd appreciate it. Tom.
  9. That's cool. Yes, I'm only running an 18:1, 1Joule set up. Where did you get your parts from? I'm having trouble finding large Amperage components and so far have only found a 10A rated part. Do they do 15 or 20Amp as a single component? Tom.
  10. This has been a long running problem, I think, but since I've been out of airsoft I've let it slide. For some reason, even though I'm following loads of threads with 'instant notification', I do not get anything to my email. This morning, I received an email for this THREAD because I'm signed up to a general notification in the Tech section. That's fine, however, this is contradicted by the fact I have not received notification for my THREAD in the Tech section for which I have set to instant notification. This, from vague memory is not the first time. Any ideas? Tom.
  11. Just wondered whether anyone has tried this? Can you simply drop them in as a replacement for the original and will they react in same fashion, faster or slower? Thanks, Tom.
  12. I been messing about and bought a new grip and I might be able to sandwich a Micro2 fuse down between the motor can and the grip wall. If not then i might just ditch it and watch my trigger discipline if something acts up. Cheers, Tom.
  13. Even though I use a car blade fuse in the stock tube I still want to make more room for my Lipo and plugs. Can I move the fuse to the negative side of the battery and in my case have it attached to the 'source', or maybe the 'drain' depending on fitment, and still have the fuse do its job as if it were connected to the positive? Cheers, Tom.

    Instant email notifications showing up late.

    Ok, this problem is back and probably the only reason I know it still is a problem is because I'm currently discussing an active topic that I created. In any case, whether it was resolved or not, I am not getting instant notification to my email at all so far. For instance, if I use THIS thread as an example, which I recently created, I have it set to instant notification of replies and I've also checked that my email is up to date. I have, however, received no reply notifications to my email at all. Any fix? Tom.

    Gents, Maybe a re-installation is the way to go, somewhat annoying, but hey. I'll look into the other options as well. Cheers.
