    A jolly drive to Cambridge

    Off again to Papworth hospital in Cambridge today and back from south Essex, thinking to take the scenic route through Saffron Walden, obviously pigeon spotting all the way , not that I shoot that far out now but the pigeon shooters habit of having a passing glance as you pass likely fields is difficult to break after 30 plus years of shooting , even the wife does pigeon spotting now on trips. How many of us suffer from the same affliction ? 😏

    Fitting magnets in walking stick ferrule

    I used a magnet from a de-funked pond pump , I glued the magnet to an old glass fibre telescopic rod to give a length when open of around 1.5 mtr length does the job well for spent cartridges from the auto.

    Trip down memory lane

    Enjoyed reading your report, its not all about the numbers of birds down to enjoy your shooting, I too remember my late brother every time I shoot and go fishing. He taught me how to and probably more than I can now remember . P.S hope them dippas helped

    pigeon flappers

    I never used one in 30 plus years of pigeon shooting apart from a string pull one for a very short time. But I now never go out without a battery remote/timer one and often use 2.

    Help anyone, Magnet motor total failure

    Forgot to add it is possible to use a drill variable trigger as a speed controller with some fiddling, but some can get hot to the degree of melting plastic so wise to mount in a metal box as a heat sink if possible.

    Help anyone, Magnet motor total failure

    Try looking for battery drill motor and gear box , looks very much like an in-line drill or screw driver set up arrangement, plastic gears are for light duty go for metal gears. Made a light weight one some years ago , used artificial birds and worked fine for several years till like me got worn out.😞 Worth looking at any old drills and screwdrivers when the battery dies and the cost of replacing the battery can exceed the cost of buying a new tool if you like to make your own rotary's.

    Light & durable

    Have shot with a friend of mine that has used them ever since they came out and they do work well, he usualy gets very respectable bags if there is pigeon about. I have always used a shell decoy set initially and add/replace with real as I feel needed or not, but clocking onto three score and ten years I have recently bought some silosocks in view of the weight saving and what I have seen with their results.
