  1. Red breast

    Very nice indeed, you must have been amazingly close to the little chap (or chap-ess)
  2. Tower flintlock help

    Interesting. I'm just beginning to do a bit of research so have no idea if it was for a pistol or musket, or f there is a difference. I take it yours a pistol? Very nice figuring on the woodwork.
  3. Tower flintlock help

    Thanks Chris. I hope so, it's not in great shape but if it's genuine it will go on my very, very long list of things to do! Thanks.
  4. Tower flintlock help

    ha, might as well be as I've not been shooting or a year - work, self-building an extension.
  5. Tower flintlock help

    I've just picked up an old flintlock action that belonged to my dad and has been sitting in a drawer for years. It has been crudely repaired - the spring has been welded and there are some modern bolts, but I don't know if it is is a genuine Tower action or not. I'm assuming it's a copy of some sort but if any of you knowledgeable people have any insights I'd be interested in hearing them. I've not cleaned it up yet but there is a little crude engraving on it and the name Tower but no other makings that I can see.
  6. Kell Brook v Gennady Golovkin (Spoiler Alert)

    +1. Truly awesome fighter, if he could move his head more he'd be the perfect boxer.
  7. Farage and Trump

    These things are slightly subjective, but Clinton (Bill) was actually a pretty successful president in many ways and certainly redressed the balance after many many years of Republican presidencies. Just to clarify, impeachment is just the name given to the process of questioning an official in office, it isn't a guilty verdict or even strictly related to a trial. I think he was ultimately cleared of any charges but it was a little sordid and a degrading thing, although not strictly relating to policy or his ability as a president, it was damaging to his reputation. I totally agree with island gun, not a great choice for the US either way, but the least objectionable (and least dangerous) has surely to be Hillary.
  8. Cutting Down T38 Torch

    You won't need to if you're only using 4.2V. I used two 18650s to get enough to power the camera (8.4V) but I added a buck converter to step down enough for the viewfinder and T20.
  9. Heads up aldi bargain

    Not here, still £69 in store.
  10. Woodburner glass

    +1 Cleans just as well as any glass cleaner and it's free.
  11. Night time photo

    You'd be surprised at what you can get with short (sub 10 second) exposures with a decent sensor. If your camera has low noise at 2500 iso then a good clear winters night (and no light pollution) will get you an amazing shot with foreground and no star movement.
  12. Olympic Medals

    I would have thought that they compete for the glory and the kudos rather than the metal-ware. If they only wanted gold they'd be better off saving their energy and nipping off to Argos.
  13. Night time photo

    Great photo for this time of year! Could you offer him/her a free couple of days stay in exchange for use on your website?
  14. What is this???

    That's not smoke, it's 10x7 to the power of 12 tiny spores. Did they teach you nothing at school?
