    Not with forumite though “appart from a little bit of this and that through the night”

    I got round to stripping down my vintage red phone Link.

    Although the link shows a modern repro mine is origanal. The dial was sticking and not returning quick enough to register the dialed numbers so I stripped it down, cleaned it up and put some hair clipper oil in the mechanicals. And yes, I only had hair clipper oil and sunflower oil and maybe some duckhams/gtx in the shed. :yahoo:   Works perfect now, nice and clear too. :good:

    It killed half an hour anyway :scratch: :unsure:

    Just remember, that if you need to dial 999 in the dark, you’ll need four fingers, not two!!! :good:

    Hi Lee, I’m trying to use the site on my PC and the pages are unclickable, for want of a better word.No parts of the page are active, and the cursor stays as the arrow. My PC is fine as the cursor works as expected on other tabs in chrome, tabs in Firefox and Thunderbird, all as it should. It’s just the Forumite site ( Latest Replies page ) that isn’t working.

    I’ve had to dig out the Pad to post this.

     

    Edit – OK, you must have been in the middle of something as I’m back on the PC now – 1 minute later.!!

    Cheers

    It was like that for a few minutes but it should not be now.

    Cheers, Lee – as per edit of first post, it’s back to normal now.

    I was checking mouse batteries, different programs etc. Well at least it kept the old grey matter mobile!! :yahoo:
