  1. I have been using the 3" Gamebore silver steel which are fibre wad. Our landowner has said no plastic wads due to livestock on land.
  2. Most Jap bike have a geared final drive and it may be that one of the gears in the train have broken a key that holds it in position. Very rare for a gearbox to suddenly fail, I should say that is repairable by a garage who know what they are doing
  3. It sounds as if there is something in the drive train has broken, like the drive between the engine and gearbox. I think Jbs idea was if you can push it when it in gear then it would suggest a drive problem rather than the gear box broke. There are several places that could be the problem so will need to go through in sequence
  4. I was recently given 20 of these 16 bore cartridges tried a couple and the hit clays no problem and seemed OK through my Greener SbS Other photo of case fromabove
  5. I brought a Franchi to shoot duck with steel cartridges as my old Beretta was not steel proof. I now find I use it to shoot clays and most of my shooting. Really well made and good value
  6. I have a Franchi affinity which is very similar to the Benelli and always use Gamebore velocity and never had one not eject. Have also used the 24gr Evo and they work ok but are more expensive so stick with Velocity.

      Beating stick

      If you are coming near j14 on M1 I could find you bit of blackthorn, have several bit with vee tops that I was going to take for beaters when we start on the pheasants. They are not finished but free if wanted. I also make a few sticks for sale
    2. Hi All can anyone identify the tree from these leaves.
    3. My Dad made these out of stainless steel, he was a toolmaker and they alway make me smile when I use them
    4. You can get a special knife blade to fit a jigsaw I cut some egg tray type foam with one and it cut like butter . They are longer than normal and say cut 100mm thick Bosch part T313AW
    5. Hi Ben Back fro hols, pictures of feeders we use, Kenco Pc-44s, directional feeders. The motor used is a Mabuchi FC280 pt long shaft motor working on a 12volt battery. The impeller is a rubber straight impeller which we got from USA, but we are looking for an alternative. If you search the web you should be able to find some diagrams. If you try to make your own the timers on ours work on the light available so go of in the morning and evening, but other timers would work.
    6. I have a 2.4 short wheel base and it is a cracking little motor, but as said uses petrol, the seats fold up so square flat area in back
    7. We have a total of 8 auto feeders on our two lakes, they originally came from USA and are called Kenco feeders. Most auto feeders spin horizontal but these work vertically so can put a line along the shallows accurately. They only use a small 12v motor and have a timer. Can supply you the motor details and a photo when I get on computer if you need them.
