Links to interesting information.

Just thought I'll start a topic where people can just post a link to a interesting website page they found. Thought it could be a good idea so if your looking for information on a process.

So if you find a good info just paste a link in with a little header on what it is.

Try not to fill it up with banter and questions. I just think if we have a place to look for information it might help us all.

If like me you have been misusing a paint brush for years (using the brush to stir the paint :naughty: :whistle: ). Here is a useful guide to paint brushes and keeping them in tip top condition.

This one's great. It explodes all the myths about Johnson's Klear/Future.

Remember, it was originally discovered as a CHEAP alternative to little bottles of gloss varnish from Vallejo etc.

Some muppet is asking 123 quid a bottle on :twisted: Bay. And some gullible twit is going to pay. Don't get suckered.

Interested in building electronic circuit boards to use with LED's or electric motors etc...

The first one is a must for the absolute beginner and the second one is full of information and more advance.
