  1. We used to make our own, although some kids had a milbro. The elastic came from bicycle inner tubes. The leather, who knows ? Fired pebbles picked from the river. Never heard of French arrows .... We made Chinese arrows from a piece of dowel, with anything sharp for a point. They were thrown by a length of string. I suppose the method is similar to how the Aborigine spears are thrown. Its a wonder we are still around after all the daft things we did as kids. Anyone ever make pigeon pea guns ?
  2. Being an old guy, perhaps the hangers were for reminder notes ....
  3. Is the sling sold ? Alan.
  4. I don't see that any of this is about bird welfare, its just " I don't like people shooting so lets ban it" ( In anyway we can. ) Lets hope the community can continue getting its act together and forward our case.
  5. Sometimes builders bury rubbish .... I hope that's not the case for you though and its just an easy fix. Is there anyone local ( farmer ) who knows how the field was prior to the build ?
  6. I'm 67 and have had a pen knife in my pocket, as long as I can remember and would be lost without one.
  7. That's a bargain for someone. A cracking scope.
  8. Hi, You need sign on at job centre, which will give you a national insurance stamp, even if you don't qualify for unemployment benefit. It happened to me, and after a while trying find a job in engineering, which I had done since leaving school, I tried going self employed. It worked, as I was handy at DIY. So I did some decorating, odd jobs and gardening. I had to turn down some work as I had plenty to keep me occupied and had time to myself if I wanted it. Best thing that ever happened to me. I'm sure you will get there, as you have noticed its happened to so many of us. Best of luck.
  9. Hi and yes please. Can you pm your details. Alan
  10. Could you manage with box section being the same dimensions, but on one, weld flats the same size as the box width, (ie, fabricating your own box section) on all four faces and long enough to support the moveable box section. That should remove any slackness, as your box is the same size.

    Stick wood

    I would make a stick out of it. Why waste it ? Good luck. Alan.

    Funny eye

    HI, I had the same happen to me years ago. I thought the lens had fallen out my glasses, but after a while it cleared up, only to happen again. I now know it was migraine. No headaches nor other vision problems, however, these did come some time later. You really should get checked out, as who knows what's going on. Hope your soon sorted.
  13. Hi, Use one of those digital safes. Fixed securely and out of sight would be fine.
  14. No 6, A turret press disc please, if one is still available. Alan
