Syncropendence - recovery workshop

Postby bene » 27 Mar 2018, 11:52

Hi everybody!
So, with syncropendance coming up soon.... (i really cant wait!) I thought i would ask if there was likely to be another 'recovery workshop' please?

Last years one performed by Simon (toomanytoys) with help from others was great. Very useful, very infomative and thorough.

I have a small selection of recovery gear now, including a Tirfor Winch, snatch block etc etc that i am more than happy to lend out for the cause.

If it does happen, i would like to film it but wont upload to youtube or anything as we know how the internet can be. It would be available for fellow syncronauts only.
Any one for cricket? what what?

Not entirely sure of the plan, but after some conversations last year, I think Dave Wedgebury will be doing some of the planning and organising so might be worth a chat with him.

Sounds good. Tirfor and snatch block and some plasma even maybe... maje a great combination.

Maybe Ian might find time to modify/repair that ratvag of a land anchor ?

I'll find something suitable Clive. High tensile with a good tough core.
Unbrako springs to mind...

That pin is 14mm dia, (actually measures 13.8) and marks with a file with mere hand pressure.

It's soft as poop.

Great... I may well have some M14 socket caps or similar too... in fact ww should discuss whether my stock ofvengineering fasteners would be more useful in your hands than mine. Including BSF !

At the risk of turning into my hoarding-inclined father, we can always make good use of them (assuming it doesnt run into several cwt!)
We have to speak all measurement systems at work and sometimes pre-standardized metric too, that's when the really old reference books come out!
