  1. We were in Settle, doing a number of walks in the Settle, Clapham and Ingleton area. My wife is recovering from a broken ankle (Christmas), and my son is a wanna-be gamer so feels he should be allergic to fresh air and exercise, so we weren't sure how much walking we would be able to do this year, but it went very well. We also had a day trip over to Heysham to have a tour of the nuclear power station, which was very interesting (anyone tempted to do this, please note that it needs to be booked at least three weeks in advance).
  2. Well done on the 10 year anniversary - here are my transformation pics:
  3. We've been away walking in the Yorkshire Dales for the past week - glorious scenery and weather. This was my watch for the week, and still is today:
  4. That looks very nice - well done.
  5. Congratulations! Wear it in good health.
  6. Dagaz Thunderbolt for me today
  7. I must be misreading this chart - to my eyes, it appears to show that White Gold, Steel, Iron and Nickel are all identical in hardness - 4.0 on the Mohs scale?
  8. Nigel, I've never really thought about it, it's never been a problem. There seems plenty of room to get any tools in. I tend to work quite close up anyway, because of my normal eyesight. I have not been aware of being any closer, and my suspicion is it is farther away. Of course the great thing is two free hands.
  9. I use a pair of spectacles type of loupe I got from Cousins. They weren't very expensive, but I can't remember how much. @Nigel B I wear glasses normally, all the time (shortsighted). I don't have a problem wearing the loupe instead - except I can't see very much when I take the loupe off.
