    Savage WSM??

    Well got to go now as I've got a goose killing fox to sort out. And it won't be with a rimmy. 22 centerfire is the fox calibre.

    Don't take up farm work. You will be paid a days money a week. Although a free house and free shooting helps.

    I had a year with a 22Wmr and I found it underpowered for foxes most needing a back up shot. After changing to a 223 it's drop on the spot for 95% of foxes and although they are vermin they still deserve a quick kill.

    95% of my foxes are under 100yards but I still think a 223 is the best tool for the job.

    Out of 8 goose eggs 6 were double yolkers. And one had a soft shell around the yolk inside the egg.probably because of them being young geese.

    Just had a Spanish omelette made with 4 goose eggs. I've never known them lay this early but I am not complaining.

    28 bore v 20 bore

    The advantage is cart price . More choice of guns.A heavier more controllable gun. What's the advantage of a 20?

    28 bore v 20 bore

    I haven't owned one but I have shot one. And it felt like pointing a stick.

    28 bore v 20 bore

    Apart from someone with limited strength or a disability I cannot see why anyone would choose a 20 or 28 gauge. They are too light so difficult to be smooth with and have a higher recoil than a 12 gauge if shooting the same loads.

    Chinese inverter welder

    It must have come from a UK supplier as it only took three days. But a Chinese company is listed as the seller so I guess they have a warehouse over here.
  15. I've got a javac 170amp inverter arc welder which was quite expensive when I bought it about 10 years ago and I've never really got on with it the duty cycle isn't great and it's very rod fussy. So looking on eBay for a replacement I noticed several 200amp inverters for amazing prices. The cheapest was £48.99 or make an offer so I offered £45 and it turned up in three days. On opening the box it looked like a toy it weighs about 4kgs and is tiny. After fitting a plug and using the leads off my other welder (the ones supplied are rubbish) I fired it up and amazingly it worked I ran 10 X 3.2 rods in a row and it never cut out so I turned it up to full and ran a couple of 4mm rods and it still didn't cut out. It welds very well I don't suppose it will last very long but for £45 it's amazing.
