    Forget Veganuary, it’s time to eat meat! Support World Carnivore Month

    This won’t have anywhere near the publicity of this current vegan movement and propaganda. But there are plenty of people around the world adopting a Carnivore lifestyle, they just don’t shout as loud as the vegans. https://meatrx.com/ Dr Shawn Baker is a big name in the carnivore movement...

    Anyone fabricating with Hardox?

    Just mulling an idea over, wondering if anyone has experience of using Hardox or similar? I realise Hardox is just a name. Not sure if it’s only available in sheet form, or if RHS for instance, is available in that grade of steel? Other general questions, can it be drilled? Anything special...

    Challenging a speeding ticket?

    Had an Intention to Prosecute letter from the police, over an alleged speeding offence. The thing is, I am as sure as I can be that the vehicle in question was not there at that time, indeed I was driving it and never went anywhere near that location at that particular time. How do I go about...

    Not back until the 7th.....

    I can’t imagine there are many of us who are not back at work until Monday. I know plenty of schools won’t be back until next week, but how many businesses can afford not to be back until the 7th of January? I’d love an extended Christmas break, but the reality is there’s too much to do, like...

    Air gun advice please

    A friend of mine has asked me this question, I’m looking for a little advice, as I am unsure what to say to her. She has, for some time had in her possession some air guns, these were her late husbands, and to cut a long story short, they have recently come to light in his things as she’s...

    Essex, the land of Giants!........maybe?

    I was out doing a spot of soil sampling this afternoon, and came across this curious object.... Can only be described as a giant knife! It is circa 2ft long, 1 3/4” deep at the deepest point and 3/4” thick at the ‘handle’ part. The blade part is approximately 6” long. The blade end is most...

    415V 1ph Welder....

    as above, I have an old welder I’d like to get going and use, if I can’t then there’s no point in it taking up space any longer! We’ve dragged it out and dusted it off this afternoon, I knew it was 415V, but it’s wired with up with what looks like a length of 6mm single phase cable, on the...

    Post editing?

    Has anyone else noticed that the time in which you get to edit a post has dramatically reduced? I’m sure you could always edit a postal up to two or three days after you posted it, now it’s only a very short time, hours or maybe less? I’m not sure. I’m no scholar, and not the best with words...

    Gumtree? Or eBay?.....

    need to start getting rid of a few things that are no longer used. Is eBay still the best choice? Or is Gumtree worth a try? Is anyone using gumtree with a good degree of success? eBay just seems like a PITA these days.

    Hypothetical question....

    Sorry for the thread title, but I could think of a good way to word this, without it sounding a bit dodgy! Anyway, my question is, how old do you think children should be , before it’s acceptable to be left alone in a house. And I don’t mean that the adults are out in the garden, I mean they...

    Ford Q cab roof. Wanted

    Hi all. Mate of mine is doing a light resto on a Ford 6600 Q cab, and is in need of a new roof, as there’s some significant damage to one of the rear corners, and light damage elsewhere. I think he’d like both the top and the bottom panels, but he thinks the top would go again if needed, but...

    Unusual connector ID?

    Wondering if anyone has come across these connectors before? They are on a Snowex salt spreader controls. I will admit that I’ve not had a google yet, but with no brand name to go on, as I can’t see any ID on them, thought I’d ask here first, see if anyone has an idea about them?

    Flail rotor balancing?

    The excavator mounted Flail, I’ve recently purchased, is currently ‘in the workshop’, in need of a few minor fixes. Which has resulted in the complete assembly being dismantled. I’ve not seen it yet, but dad tells me he’s got it to bits!:nailbiting: Probably going to renew all the bearings on...
