I was thinking up some stupid comment about loose nuts when..... If people in Indiana say warsh rags instead of wash cloth for cleaning dishes, do they use warshers on their nuts and bolts? My answer would be, not unless they drilled the holes too big.

Whitworth seems about 90% metric... who's got the math?!

Wow, British Whitworth...I had a bolt belonging to a British made Keg Filler and I couldn't find a nut for it. My boss told me it was 13mm but they don't make a 13mm thread. He argued with me so I went out to my box and pulled out the Machinist Bible and opened it to the book of threads and finally found what I held in my hand. A 1/2"-16 tpi British Whitworth!! I took the bible to my boss and told him to read it. He became rather sheepish! This was no antique either. It was a modern machine and still using old hardware.

I came across that while in England in the 80s. I remember thinking,"crud, three".

Ya Big Blowhard


Itís really windy outside. Iíve been sitting here watching the wind blowing the leaves down the street, then reversing direction and blowing the leaves back up the street. My next door neighbor didnít bring his trash cans in after the garbage collectors came by, and one of them is two houses down from where it was. I watched the Weather last night, and the talking head said there would be gusts in the 45 MPH range. I believe it. Itís supposed to be raining, but all the rain is passing either north or south of us. Itíll probably get us before itís all over, though. Itís also pretty warm; itís in the mid 60s (18ļC). However; thereís a cold front moving in (hence the wind and rain) and tomorrowís high is supposed to be something like 37ļ F (3ļC).

Iím in a weird place mentally. I had a particularly nasty Migraine yesterday, and the pain has lingered, which puts me in a nasty mood. But I finished sorting out over twenty thousand assorted small nuts, washers and assorted bolts. It took me over a month and a half, but the job is done. The cabinet, with all its drawers loaded is now down in the basement. That makes me feel good. To complicate things, the Migraine leaves me feeling really weak; like a limp dishrag. So; Iím feeling irritable, pissed off, happy and Iím exhausted at the same time. My head has been in better places.

The Roadster is running well. Sheís due for an oil change, so Iíll head over to the Hardly shop this week when I get my SS money. I periodically go on a kick where I start considering what to replace the Roadster with. If I was a bit better off financially, Iíd buy an EBR 1190 SX, but , as usual, Iím so broke I have trouble paying attention. Iím hoping that the MoFoCo does come out with a 900cc version of the Street Rod. I like the 750 version; I think a 900 could be very interesting. There really isnít anything thatís calling to me besides those two. Well, maybe a newer Sportster if something should happen to the Roadster. The only problem with that is that there are so many things Iíd have to change to get a new Sportster set up the way I want it. The Roadsterís almost set. I have the rubber gaitors for the front forks; Iíll put them on when I change the front tire. I need to check and make sure the old style front fender will fit, then get one. It does a better job of keeping the rain off me. I also want to find a wire headlight lens protector. If Iím going to be riding over a thousand miles of dirt roads when I ride to Tuk, I want the headlight protected.

I think when my SS money comes in, Iíll head over to Wootís and get a half rack of ribs. Iíve been really missing the Dinosaur lately, and eating at Jimís Smokingí Que made me realize just how much I miss good BBQ. Wootís is good and the prices are reasonable. Yeah; I think I will.

And Ken Lindholm, manager of the End of the Road Inn in Tuk, said that ďwhen you hit the ocean here, thereís a marker that says ĎEnd of the Trans-Canada Highway.í Ē

For some Canadians, posing for a photo in front of it might just be on their bucket list, he figures.


And one biker named Crusty!
