A Week In The Workshop 135

Hi everyone. Better late then never...

So, more out of the workshop this week as we managed to snatch a few days away with the 'grown & flown' children down in Devon. Had a lovely time, ate too much, drank too much, and it took far too long too get home again, but totally worth it to be with family.

A few things to chat about this weekend - an update and explainer on the new website at, the DIY MFT hinge teaser video goes viral on instagram, and ideas for an Absolute Basics series of videos; “this is a hammer” anyone..?

Lastly, let’s be careful out there; my YouTube pal Keith Brown came back from a couple of days away to find his workshop extractor running - sounds familiar! Yes, once again it seems like a rogue remote was to blame, though Keith was using a more sophisticated keychain type than the domestic remote I was using when I had my scare. Thankfully there was no fire, and no major damage done - I think Keith’s extractor has lost one of its motors - but a timely reminder to take care, especially if you’re going away for a couple of days. Don’t just switch things off, unplug them as well.

That’s all for this week. Hope to have something for you mid-week, but I have a funeral to attend, sadly, for a distant relative of Mrs 10M, so we’ll have to see how things work out.

Thank you as always for your amazing support, and I’ll catch you in the next one.

Best, Peter
