    Can you not look for a recipe for the wad and components you have got.  Put your components on here and a member might have a recipe for you.

    I change wads at will but it's not recommended, can push pressures over the limit.

    Hi figgy,

    cheers for the reply. Someone on the Facebook group was able to advise me about changing the wads & altering the powder charge. Someone a lot more experienced than me.

    Simple question (I think) , is the 20mm you  have given the inside dimension of the female end?  If so it is threaded 3/4 bsp which is what is on the fitting W72 recommended.  the other side just push fits to the end of the pipe.

    Yes sorry 20mm is the inside dimension of the female end rather than the pipe dimension. Thanks for the help lads, I'll have a look at the recommendation from winston.

  3. Its been in force here in Northern Ireland for almost 2 weeks. I spent the last 3 months of hard labour getting my grass established on my new lawn and then we have the warmest summer in ages ?

  4. I am finishing off my kennel block at the moment and I will have a sink in the block for cleaning my game and making the dogs dinners. I have a 25mm MDPE pipe running from my outside tap down to the kennel block and I'm hoping to connect this to the tap that came with the sink. The sink came with flexible hose with a 20mm fitting on the end. What would I need to connect the pipe to the sink? 

    Sorry but I really don't have a notion.

    I've just been busy swearing at my hose the day, u only have to look at it and it kinks, its a hozelock yellow and grey hose, rubbish. But it was quite cheap.

    Long hoses can be a pain to work with, but those joiners things work well.

    I've went away from hose lock fitting and am now all on brass fitings , even the good hozelock 1's don't like UV or get dropped occasionally


    Random idea would it be easier in long term to lay a surface pipe down to the far end of garden and put a tap on it?

    Just use alky fittings so at end of year u just unscrew a fitting to let pipe drain out for winter,. Real easy to do as a DIYer the only difficult thing might be teeing into the water supply,

    Thanks for all the replies. The issue is the front of the house if I want to water the front lawn or wash the car. The back & side garden can be sprayed from the raised patio with a decent length of hose. I would have no idea how to lay a surface pipe, but I should have told the contractor to put a tap at the front of the house when they were building it.

  6. Need a decent robust garden hose. I recently bought a cheapy online; one of the retractable ones and it was pants. I have quite a large garden and the tap is at the back door, so I need quite a long hose to go around to the front of the house. Links and recommendations will be much appreciated :yes:

  7. I looked it up and the 3 digit code on the lock may relate to a bisley lock, which you can order keys for a couple of quid. Going to try that first before I drill the lock out. 

    The cabinet was fitted a while ago & im thinking the keys were threw out with other stuff.

  8. I got a new cogswell & Harrison 6 gun safe recently, bolted it to the wall locked everything away including my bolts in the lockable locker at the top. 

    Now I can't find the keys to the small lockable locker at the top of the safe. I always put my keys in my keypad safe so I honestly can't think what I done with them!!!

    Another video full of good stuff, thanks for posting.

    Some good shots there, the high hen bird and the crow particularly stood out.

    Blue skies, snow on the ground and calm seas, you have it all there.

    Just looking at those slopes you climb up and down makes my legs ache, you must all be fit as fleas.


    Yeah we had a fair bit of snow on shoot days this year. Too much rain too though, ground is absolutely sodden. Tomorrow is last day & we've surpassed 60% again.

    Cracking video. 

    Glad you know where the other guns are. 

    Enjoyed your post, thank you.



    Generally 1 or 2 men stand on each drive, the rest are walking guns through the cover.

    Enjoyed that, lovely ground and looked like that crow was a fair distance.




  10. Im hoping I can get the greenhouse erected at the new house this spring to be involved this year but I fear it could be 2019. A few years ago I really got into growing chillis but this year it may have to be a garden centre bought plant. Good luck to all.
