So as an Engineer I of course consider myself to be the 'Best Engineer in the World' - same as every other Engineer (Smoke) ;)

However there comes a time when we all must admit that there is someone who, probably by luck and despite not being quite so good overall, has managed to aquire some specialised knowledge that we are not party to. How do you extract that info from him?

A. Torture him to acquire said knowledge and then throw his broken twitching body overboard, so you are now the expert or
B. Just throw him overboard and pretend the knowledge never existed in the first place or
C. use these sites that have assisted me greatly over the last few years

http://www.eng-tips.com
http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com

Joking aside, I hope they may be of some use to you, they are two great resources and worthy of a place in the 'reference section'

Thanks for these excellent links, look forward to gaining more knowledge.

Does anybody want to know the easy way to set the shims in a Weirs up and down pump shuttle valve?
Nobody in the pub seems interested(Whaaa)

I knew a fireman who could imitate the sound of a weir pump very authentic too he was.

You were obviously in the wrong corner of the pub Gordy, you should look for the chainblocks hanging off the ceiling! Or perhaps, a different pub?
