    Q coupling?

    I'm looking at maybe getting a second hand pole tamper. Assuming that i can get the use of a compressor that can put enough airflow out, how do i integrate a Q coupler fitted hose with the compressor/PCL fittings?

    Dog sheep attack on my land, where do I stand?

    I've warned my neighbour politely twice about their sheep coming onto my land. Don't care about them grazing a bit of grass but we have 10 dogs, some with known history and that's without general high prey drive and pack behaviour. They've done nothing to stop them crossing still. Up until now...

    Laying a small concrete slab for vehicle loading bay

    I need to lay a slab for parking the chiller van (panel van) on such that it can be washed down and the run off collected in a drain. How thick should the concrete be? How thick should a stone sub-base be? Do i shutter for both layers, so 8-10+ inches? Best method of shuttering, given the above...

    Laying concrete with integral surrounding upstand

    I need to create a contained wash down bay for our pet food plant. We already have a 6x1m path, but we need to add to this a vehicle unloading/wash down bay and also extend the slab underneath the doors of both the freezer and the cutting room. It needs to be so that any dropped/spilled/wash out...

    Parking and power for ice cream van storage

    Fella I know needs somewhere to store his ice cream van and a chest freezer over this summer. I can estimate power use and charge accordingly but what about the parking fee.

    Cable tie alternative

    I have a need to secure puppy pen panels together more than just their hooks for micropig visits. I use cable ties but it seems wasteful to use a bunch for every single school they go to. I am aware of reusable cable ties, are they any good for repeated use? Alternatively are they any methods i...

    Wood chipper not running

    I was gifted this old wood chipper. Been sat covered (as well as possible) with a tarp over winter. Has a 16A plug, running through a 16A to 13A adaptor it was blowing the 13A fuse immediately when starting. Put a 16A socket on the wall and it does not trip a 16A mcb but still doesn't run. The...

    Power steering reservoir empty

    What are the possible issues with having the reservoir for the power steering pump lay empty for an extended period. I didn't know about it when we first got the machine and it steered well enough for me to not think about it. But then I suspected it wasn't powerful enough and found no fluid...
