Hanging a door on a boiler.
After yesterday’s disaster, I realised that I could not fix the door and vent that I had spent so many hours making. The vent holes and the vent itself were too big for the opening into the boiler. So I had to totally redesign and remake them.
But you know what? When you make something a second time, you have done it before. And the second making is MUCH faster.
So I remade the firebox door and the vent control grill. Then I made another hinge. And I attached them to the boiler. And you know what else…. I broke another f*****g 1.5mm drill bit in the hinge…. again. But it is OK. I have made that mistake only twice on this job, so I have got two more goes before I slit my wrists.
As for the suggestion that I use EDM to remove the broken drill piece, I really doubt that would work on a 1.5mm drill. But maybe…..
But the broken drill bit was in both the door and the hinge. So I just left it there, and it can become half of the hinge pin, permanently.
