RE: Chat hub
Are you mostly using electric welders? UV is supposed to be very attractive to insects so I'm not surprised you find bugs in the weld pool.

We have these horrible blood sucking things called midges. While they are harmless, they are intensely irritating. They are at their worst on damp, overcast and warm days. Or, in other words, a typical Scottish summer. They are usually at their worst around here from July-September. Once the weather turns cooler (below about 50F) they disappear.

There can be nearly solid clouds of the things at times. They are annoying enough that they have had an effect on population patterns in Scotland. They are worse in the West of Scotland as it is wetter than the East (Where I live) though they can be bad enough in the East.

We have mosquitoes, black flies and horse flies up here, along with many other bugs... But those are the worst.
Black flies and mosquitoes bite and suck blood. Horse flies basically come and take a chunk of you when they bite and leave big welts. 

Yeah, we mostly use mig where I work.

Yeah, we have horseflies too - but they aren't that common fortunately.

RE: Chat hub
So, finally got around to getting the parts to fix our toilet... 

The handle has been broke for like a year. We just hung the chain out the side of the top and pulled it to flush.

Got all new guts, took the tank off, removed all the old guts, scrubbed the whole toilet nice and good inside and out, installed the new guts, got the tank back on to the bowl... 

The freaking flex pipe that feeds the toilet sprung a leak! Dash2


9:50pm here right now, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.


Filled the tank up by hand, and its holding water and flushes like a charm! Thats a plus Good

Oh, and I broke my tiny little tapered reamer today too drilling through a piece of plastic... That pissed me off as I knew better. I do not know what size it was, but I would say it was probably about 1/32 to 1/8 tapered... have no others anywhere near that small, and multiples of much larger tapered reamers
