Aspirin are a good blood thinner with a usual dose of 75mg daily. But not to be taken if anyone has a stomach/digestive problem as they are renown to cause acid and stomach ulcers! GP/Specialists where Aspirin over other blood thing mediation is to be taken will usually also advise a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) to be taken as well to counteract the acid the Aspirin produces.

My wife has had four TIAs and a DVT and takes a dose of between 8 & 9 mg Warfarin a day plus one 75mg Aspirin too! There is now a new drug out now that is slowly replacing Warfarin that doesn't need the INR blood clotting test/check to be carried regularly.

But none of this has anything to do with the topic. So lets get back on course please.

I take the enteric (?) coated aspirin from Tescos or Poundland, which don't irritate the stomach.

My flap, hinges up, on the left hand side, and when in place, allows for a single 00, and a single N gauge track. I have spent more time on it than anything else, and am still not 100% happy with it. However i hinge it, there is still a tad of side movement. Initially, it was lift out, which stopped that movement, but you were then stuck with where to put it, when not in use. The other flap which covers the french door, is lift out. I am going, when the weather improves, to have a play with BBs, hinge, which is super. john

I would like to say that is the best design lift up section I have ever seen BB.
Nice work indeed.
I do always like to see members woodworking skills because mine are not very good. I'm more a metal man.

John, I had the same on mine. I started by using cabinet makers dowels mounted vertically through the baseboard and a batten underneath, then I added a brass door bolt but neither were firm enough.
Finally I added a toggle catch which locks the whole thing tight. No movement now.

Steve, hi, had not thought about a toggle catch. Wonder if my french quincaillerie, ( or similar) will know what i want. When we first came here, twas easy to buy from uk, but postal rates have killed that. When you go to the post office in france, with a parcel, they have a rigid plastic rectangle, which they attempt to put parcel through. If it succeeds, cost is reasonable, if not, better to take it home, unsent. john
