    Makita battery repairs

    Some of them are only just out of warranty. Seems an excessive waste to just throw them away. Thats why I was asking if anyone had any joy in getting them refurbished.....

    Makita battery repairs

    I have a bundle of batteries that have been abused and now won't take a charge ( not by me, but by 'helpers' and folks who have borrowed them!! Has anyone had any joy at getting them reconditioned, or tried to do it themselves? The tools are great, but the Makita batteries are a weak point.

    Steel Frame Building Price & Insulated sheets?

    Have had good experiences of F & G, both in quality supplied and the build teams. The erection quote you have got seems very reasonable.

    Tracing through ScotEID?

    Should be able to....if it was sold to you from the breeder. Open your Holding register. Find the on movement of the sheep ( assume you know the date it came on?). It should show the off location for that sheep.

    Can i sell my feed mixes

    Why don't you do the change of diet before they leave your place..... We do a soft weaning, transfer to the buyers diet and do the vaccinations for our buyer. Works really well, with little check to the calves and smooth transfer. At a price of course....

    Mining crypto

    A modern 6 card rig costs £14k or thereabouts. Power consumption 1.8 kW, so 44 units per on a 'normal' 14p per unit about £6 per day in electric. No idea how you work out a depreciation on these rigs... Depending who who you believe anything from 1 to 5 even at 5 years...

    Mining crypto
