General Discussion / Re: What did you do in your shed / man cave today?

Spent 6 hours doing a 1/2 hour job  >:(

Camping at Warwick next weekend and I expect to be using the heater, and I remembered that the sight glass on the glycol tank looked a bit murky.

Thought I would just drain, flush and replace.......................but no, Murphy had other ideas.

The draining and flushing was no real issue, but after that it all went a bit wonky  :'( Refilled the system, fired it up, got the glycol up to temp, but no heat coming from the heater. Bugger says me. Worked out that the hot glycol wasn't circulating through the plumbing to the heater core inside the camper. So I figured the circulation pump might be gunged up (or stuffed), so I removed it from the wabesto (which involved draining the system of the now near boiling glycol), which was a task that required an extra 4 fingers and 3 elbows to be able to contort myself into the tiny cavity. Stripped the pump down and it was clean as a whistle, reassembled the pump and bench tested....all good  ??? played a game of macrame of the arms and refitted the the pump, fired it back up, still no glycol circulating  ???  :'(
Figured I mustn't have fitted the pump back in properly, so re-drained, re-removed, re-fitted, and re-filled everything...............still no good. At about this point, all the neighbourhood would have learnt some new naughty words. Sat sobbing on a milk crate for a while pondering the situation and came to the conclusion that there might be an air lock somewhere in the heating line, so I again drained the near boiling glycol so I could bodgy up a way to vacuum the near boiling glycol through the return line to remove any air in the line..................job done, reconnect everything, refill the tank, fire it up.................still no glycol circulating  >:(  :'(  >:( (insert lots of naughty words).

At about this point I start tapping, whacking, hitting, shaking everything associated to the heating system..................................and discover that at some point of the exercise, probably very early on in the project, I must have bumped the circ pump fuse out of the holder  :-[ Re-inserted the fuse, and hey presto, the heater worked (where is that facepalm emoji)

Anyway, I'm all good for Warwick now.

So the US State Department of whatever has legalised printing of guns on 3d printers and this nutter has post plans on the net that are downloadable.

https://www.3dnatives.com/en/3d-printed-guns-legalised180720184/

Im kind of over their gun antics but what worries me now is that anyone anywhere who owns a 3d printer can possibly print a gun.

Heres our first example

https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/police-find-3d-printers-used-to-make-guns-at-coast/3470836/

Now US law is having a direct impact on every other country worldwide, despite that individual countires gun laws.

Its beyond ridiculous.
Once again, out on parole, our judicial system letting us down nothing really to do with the yanks because to these turds the law means nothing

Then its a reflection of how out of date their constitution and amendments to that constitution are. But hey as long as they have the right to free speech, which was what the case was based on, and the right to bare arms........etc etc etc.

What comes after 3D guns, grenade launchers with home made grenades?

It’s already a crime under the firearms act in NSW to  have a digital file or printed drawing of a firearm in your possession or on your computer. There has been people charged previously

All out there now on the wonderful web and a heap of other bad sh1t and not just from the land of free speech.  But Try searching for some off it and you won’t have to use a key to open your front door when you get home from the Interrogation :D

Farcebook might have whinged about breach of copyright or something.
