Water Cooler / Bought a cheap camera drone.
« on: June 23, 2019, 05:09:48 PM »
Bought the Amazon success story (they probz stole it from an aff) X300C drone by Simrex (haven't checked them out yet, probz and Amazon subsidiary). Great fun, easy set up, blah.

In my searches on calibration problems i came upon this lovely, English-isn't-my-first-language review :

Marketing / FB advertising question.
« on: April 24, 2019, 04:09:56 PM »
Running my first FB advert. Geting the mesage "Your audience is too specific for your ads to be shown. Try making it broader."

But it lets me publish the ad, so i assume it will still run?

I chose not to use the audience network then that message showed up and my potential viewers dropped massively, i read that the audience network is 3rd party crap that just eats your budget, is this still the case ?

Water Cooler / DIY hydraulic press
« on: April 20, 2019, 12:38:03 PM »
Started making a hydraulic press, old juicer getting annoying what with clogging, cleaning etc. Just need to add a plunger to the top plate, a platform for the saddle of the jack, and another acrylic sheet to hold jack in place at bottom. All you need to do to clean this is rinse the bowl then throw away or empty the bag your chopped fruit/veg goes in each pressing.

They have fields for cstom meta data, which you fill in, then have to export, then edit, then upload, what the f### ?

Glad there's not many people using this dinosaur of a CMS!

I ordered a spool of wire from an ebay seller, when it arrived there was obviously a problem, so i contacted Kevin at tech support :


Hi, this wire is broken somewhere, you can't read resistance and irt fails a connectivity test.

I'd like to arrange a return please, and can you test the next one before sending it out? I need an unbroken wire on the spool.

Thanks, Gary.


In your original ebay message you stated that the wire is snapped to which I responded stating that it is not possible but in the message you sent afterwards you now state that we advertised the wire as enamel but is is not.

May I make it clear that we only stock enamelled copper wire (which you have received) and also that it is not possible for this wire to be snapped. I am not sure now what the problem is but if you wish to return the wire you can do so but it will be at your own cost as there is nothing wrong with what we have sent you.


Hi, thanks for replying.

I thought there was no resistance and that it must be broken, but the reason there is no resristance is because it's not enamelled so it was in effect a dead short to the meters.

I've tried scraping, i've tried burning off but there is no enamel coating,

Thanks, Gary.


Hi Gary.
I can assure you that we only stock enamelled copper wire and had you have scraped the enamel with a blade it comes off.

Me (feeling daft now):

Hi Kevin,

i'm sorry, i was wrong. I scraped it with a stanley and it came off.

Apologies for wasting your time and thanks for the swift response.

Odd that it wouldn't melt with a lighter though, is it heatproof?

All the best, Gary.


Hi Gary.

Yes the enamel is a very high temperature that would normally require a blow torch to remove the enamel.
Glad it all sorted out though.

Kind regards,


He coulda told me that when i first mentioned i couldn't get it off with a lighter!!!
