This is a place where I will be posting all sorts of things not just things relating to Derby and Derbyshire. On here you will find details of any videos I’ve made of things in Derby and also Time-lapse, stop motion animation, Tutorials etc. If I find some useful software for PC or iPhone then I will feature it here.I’m sure that there will be something of interest to someone on my many posts.Please leave comments on any posts if you like them.
Don’t forget if you are new to my blog and would like to read through the previous posts then see the Blog Archive section on the left side of this page.
Also there is a Search box at the top left of the page if you are looking for something but cant remember where it was. I am a trustee member of "Friends of Friar Gate bridge", aiming to get this bridge restored.

Lefty-loosey righty-tighty FAIL. The rhyming Aphorism fails.

Lefty-loosey righty-tighty is a well known mnemonic (memory aid) for remembering which way to turn a spanner for tightening or loosening bolts etc. Clockwise tightens, Counter-clockwise loosens until NOW !

Apart from a gas cylinder valve I have never seen anything that does not obey the Lefty-loosey righty-tighty rule. Have you?

The reason this item is the opposite to normal is because its a fan that spins clockwise so it the big cap on the end was screwed on clockwise then it would unscrew its self when the fan was spun up and the fan blade would fall off !

Thanks Andy
