Just made some tooling to hold the stag pully in my lathe so i can clean up the outside ready for a trigger wheel. I used the dro and it worked brilliantlly. Im becoming very confident that what the read out says is bang on correct.
from his FB page: "Today I have to write to all of our fantastic customers and colleagues That due to my continued health issues We have had to take the very hard decision to place our company Into voluntary liquidation Our business we have loved for the passed twenty five years Will close its doors with myself and jo at the helm on the 31st of October
I write this with tears of emotion for the job I loved
My feet don’t work like they should which means I am unable to work in a busy work shop environment as I have done all these years
Thank you all
I hope to still be involved in the triumph scene albeit in a lesser capacity
Another idea that I was sure was a leg-pull until I read about it, is the "string-cell" concept.
The idea is to have many small batteries, stored at a recharge station, and held on an EV in a tank. When the EV arrives, the discharged cells are removed and the recharged replace them. So far so conventional. What's original is that the egg-shaped cells may be 'poured' into a tank, like refilling one with petrol, a process that is said to take three minutes, so much shorter than recharging a battery that stays in the EV. Once in place, randomly aligned, the cells work out how to connect to each other, to deliver the output of a solid battery pack. Yes, sounds classic April Fool! But it is being pursued:
Who knows what will eventually catch on?
