    Can you identify this hand tool?

    A friend found this when they were clearing out an old shed. Either due to abuse or design the teeth are not set, (but they could have been when new?) The steel is rigid and not designed to flex. Does anyone recognise it or know what it is for. Thanks.

    What would you do with a 116 acre shed?

    Reports in the paper today that Boeing is thinking of winding down production of the 747. As an aside they mentioned that the shed they build them in was the largest in the world by volume. It was easy to find on Google Earth! The sheds around it are not too small either.

    Does a Datatronic 2 have a longlife battery?

    We don't use the Datatronic on our MF8220 much as it is mainly a loader tractor. The tractor is a 2001 with about 7k hours.
