Re: TV licensing...

Sorry but I just couldn't be bothered downloading stuff and watching it on a laptop to save all of 3 quid a week, it's just penny pinching.

Re: How do I test an electronic sensor ( on a rowing machine ) - NOW FIXED!

Super glue dries hard and becomes brittle, I've always used 'Mitre mate' apply the glue to one part, spray the activator on the other, hold together for 10 seconds and its bonded. Used it 1000's of times on MDF mitres!
Sticks like shi*t remains flexible and it's never let me down once.

Silicon is not an adhesive.
I'd use 'Sticks like sh*t' I've stuck loads of things with it and it's never let me down.

Re: Phantom flat

Had mine for about 8 years now, never had a problem with it. When you take the hose off the blast of air is from the hose, not the innertube. You did slide the lever across?

Re: Shimano MT800 tool ?

I got the proper shimano one from Chain Reaction, half inch drive and made to last. Cost me £18 but perfect fit, I read reviews that the park tool one was made of soft aluminium.
