    It's awfully quiet in here again! I've been listening for frantic cutting, peening, chiselling and filing, but nothing. My excuse is that my brass still hasn't materialised but what's happening with the rest of you lot. It did give me a chance to do a practise rivet peening, because I've never done it before, and it all went smoothly so bring on the brass!

    I just finished doing 7 nightshifts fixing broken trucks and loaders, too far from my shed.
    I was hoping for plenty of action and updates to give me a fix at smoko times, but it has been very quite allright.
    At least the expletive whisperer had a bit going on to keep us entertained .

    You should have posted some photos of your rivets Picko, we could have all given you some encouragement .

    You could be right Matt, they're probably busy re-making things. That's what usually follows expletives in my shed.

    OK Brad, you win on the excuses. Sorry about not providing smoko entertainment, I'll try to do better. No photo of the test rivet but I'll take one tomorrow if I think of it.

    I am with you on the night shift experience. It increasingly leaves a person debilitated. We are just finishing returning one of our units to service after a scheduled outage. 12 hours of frustration tending towards purgatory.

    Wake up you blokes.
    OK, as promised, photos of my little test rivet. It's supposed to represent one end of the cap pin - ō6 reduced to ō4 and peened. It is pretty hard to see where it is, so I'm happy with that.

    I've been informed that my brass will be in town first thing tomorrow.

    You all think I've been quiet because I've been busy marking, cutting, peening, drilling and filing brass don't you. WRONG! I've been in the corner sulking because my bloody brass didn't come!
    Back to the corner.
