  4. Hi all, for the fishermen and fisher ladies on here I recommend the following guy to service and repair fishing reels, his details are Peter Coogan and can be contacted on 0151-6773609. Peter is an ABU service engineer based in the Wirral but also works on other reels and is known as the Reel Doctor. For the last twenty years or so my go to reel for all light lure fishing needs both fresh and saltwater is an ABU Suveran, recently it started to develop clunk when turning the handle. I sent it to Peter for an assessment he repaired and did a well-deserved service, it was returned 7 days later fully working like new (inside) with a bill for £33 or which £8 of that was for Royal Mail special delivery.

  8. If its the Durs Egg double punt gun that you are interested in there are a couple of images of it on Google, they are faded and not very good quality, but may give you a lead. Best of luck MM

  10. I have a screwfix Oregon corded chainsaw its 2 years old and has had some pretty heavy use, I think I paid £80 for it when it was on offer it does drink the oil but has an interesting self sharpening device fitted to it that worked well untill a couple of weeks ago not sure if I have broken the sharpener or whether it needs a good clean. After cutting a good quantity of ash logs I engaged the sharpener, sparks fly from the chain and its back sharpe again after about 20 seconds its been a good saw and I would not hesitate buying another as it suits my purpose.

  13. Good afternoon all I am looking for information to identify a brass cartridge case I have, I belive it to be an 8 bore but was wondering if it was an industrial round rather than a sporting. Sorry about the quality of the head stamp picture I could not get it focus correctly. It reads U.M.C. Co. BRIDGEPORT. CONN. Above and NO. 8 A below I have checked my old Janes books and does not appear to be military although it appears to be berdan primed useful info would be appriciated. Thanks in advance Tim
