Australia Shearing the old way
Today, large flocks of sheep are shorn by professional shearing teams working eight hour days, most often in spring, by machine shearing. These contractor teams will consist of shearers, shed hands and a cook (in the more isolated areas). The shed staff working hours and wages are regulated by industry awards. A working day starts at 7:30 AM and the day is divided into four “runs” of two hours each. “Smoko” breaks of a half hour each are at 9:30 AM and again at 3:00 PM. The lunch break is taken at 12:00 PM for one hour. Most shearers are paid on a piece rate, i.e., per sheep. Shearers who “tally” more than 200 sheep per day are known as “gun shearers”. Typical mass shearing of sheep today follows a well-defined workflow: remove the wool, throw the fleece onto the wool table, skirt, roll and class the fleece, place it in the appropriate wool bin, press and store the wool until it is transported. In 1984 Australia became the last country in the world to permit the use of wide combs, due to previous Australian Workers Union rules. Although they were rare in sheds, women now take a large part in the shearing industry by working as pressers, wool rollers, rouseabouts, wool classers and also
Buggerance Friday : part b
Having inadvertantly left the ignition switched on whilst distracted by a sheared bolt (see elsewhere) the ignition ballast resistor started a-smokin' like a crazy thing and the coil is cooked.
Funny enough, although I haven't taken it apart yet, I can't see where it's shorted or whatever. It's a Ducellier coil but was pretty end- of- line cheap.
I await posties toot to signal delivery of a replacement coil by Bosch, supposedly with an internal ballast resistor.
Best start fretting about the right capacitor to match I suppose......
But tomorrow is Saturday (already!!) and optimium is tempered by experience. lack confidence.
