Sweating In The Sun

Yes, we know we haven’t posted much recently, but as a good friend said, it’s better to be out and doing stuff, rather than being sat back writing about it. So this post is all about our antics and fun yesterday on the TCK Allotment. And we were certainly ‘doing stuff‘. … Continue reading

Phew! Where did THAT go?

Yes, yes, yes, it’s been quite a while since we last posted. Many regular readers (…if there are such beasts…) may have thought that we’d gone out of business, or even worse got bored and accepted a ‘proper’ 9 – 5 job. No such luck, Dear Reader. Struck by the Gods of … Continue reading

More On Being 8 Years Old

The Cats Knackers

Positively brimming with excitement over the relative success of the everlasting battery, we’ve been working on ways to improve it further. These have included making it repeatable to see don’t have to rely on scrap parts, and also making it better. This ‘better’ includes ways to improve the voltage and current output, … Continue reading

Plotting, Digging and Planting

The Cats Knackers

While money-earning work for TCK continues as usual, with the recent relative heatwave over the last few days, it would have been stupid to not get out on the TCK Allotment for some good old-fashioned Plotting, digging and planting whenever possible. And this last weekend, apart from Saturday’s ‘Play Day’, we’ve … Continue reading

How To Pretend You’re 8 Years Old Again

The Cats Knackers

This morning, after Lady A left, we really were intending to get on with some proper work. After the recent ‘playtimes’ over at the TCK Allotment, we thought we’d better get on with yet more paperwork, then do some kind of planning for next week. Alas, it was not to be, as we … Continue reading

Remote and Distant

The Cats Knackers

You may think, Dear Reader, that we’re talking about someone -or even ourself- here, but we’re not. We’re warm and cuddly even if no-one else round here is. No, we’re talking about the remote from The Beast and the fact that Bus Stop is so damn far away by bus. A trip … Continue reading

Out! Get Out, Black Spot!

The Cats Knackers

Back here at TCK Headquarters, we have two cameras. One is the posh Canon 700D ‘Sunday Best’ (which were still learning how to properly use), while the other, for day-to-day use, is a little Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 we picked up a few years ago. This Lumix is the a great camera -a … Continue reading

Terminating Tales of the Top Plate

The Cats Knackers

Today, amongst many other things (…we’ve been up since six and still haven’t stopped…), was a trip down to an engineering company on the recommendation of Mr Ward Senior with the aim of taking the surface paint/covering off the aluminium top plate for The Dalek’s remote control. We had thought it would … Continue reading

News Of The Chairman…

The Cats Knackers

We haven’t mentioned this, but of late, our beloved chairman has not been feeling his usual self. We initially put this down to the changing of the seasons, or even early Spring fever, but we realised last week that this could no longer be ignored. He was gnawing himself down his … Continue reading

Lights, Camera, ACTION

tiny planet

Recently, as you will know, Dear Reader, we’ve installed the large advertising screen in the main window down at Union St. This is now fully operational, and, dare we say it, lookin’ good. However, we’re just mere grunts here at TCK. Yes, we can wire stuff up, and yes, we can make … Continue reading
