Bought a wood lathe at a sale the other day for my other half (romance isn't dead!) And it's good fun messing with it in the workshop in the evenings.
Anyone on here actually know what they are doing? I mostly just wing it having watched a couple of professionals on YouTube
Looking for recommendations for a sheepdog trainer, got a young pup that I need to get trained.
Ideally I'd like to send her away to get the basics and we can work on the rest of it here I just don't have the time (or the knowledge tbh😂) to get her started

Wants a reseed to clean it up and I'm pondering the idea of putting in something like plantain or chicory or a mix that can be grazed straight after lambing...
f**king livid with myself, split a zetor 3011 to replace a gear putting it back together and broke a piece of the bell housing off on the flywheel side.

I know there's been a few threads on this but looking to modify our existing system and put a race etc. In
