  1. Hi All Does anyone have a Harkila Orton jacket in either medium or large that they could measure armpit to armpit as some say they are large for there sizes
  2. If anyone is interested in setting a shoot up , a flurry or sim game in the Milton Keynes area, North Bucks/ South Northants area . There is a company called 1 to 1 Solutions who have the equipment below Ring 07565 526633 or email 1to1shootingsolutions@gmail.com
  3. Do you mean the type that clicks up and down, because they sometimes stick shut. If so you need to turn it to unscrew the top and then buy a new click clack button from the internet
  4. I have a Land Rover gillet as below, which I think came from the Gaydon motor museum many years ago but not sure
  5. The one I went on there was only three men all the others were mins taking their kids to school. Some of them really had attitude that they were hard done by. But most realised that the course was of interest when finished. I got done on a stretch that had had the limit reduced since I was living there so had an good reason but you have to man up and bite the bullet

    Swiss army watches

    Seconda do a watch like the Swiss army one, at under you budget
  7. Not sure why anyone should complain about the fuel tank size, drove down to south coast and back two weeks ago 320 mile on a tank
  8. I had a 1.4 petrol fiesta and was concerned that the 1.0 Eco would no be as good. When I drove it I was very pleased how it went, have had it now for 4 years and really please with it. Have had new Vw polo and several new fiestas and this is the best yet. Really can not fault it so if I was you I would go and ask Ford to let you test drive one, you will be supprised.
  9. Have never really understood why dealers charge so much extra to but say. 250 that buying 1000. I always buy 1000 at time but only go in shop every few months. If they charged the same for 500 I would go in twice as often and may buy something else when in the shop.
  10. Normally only make the odd stick or two, but mate asked if I could mount some antlers that came from Scotland. Cut and routered some mahogany to shape as below, really please with result
  11. More info, 30" barrels 2 3/4 chambers, just heard back from Greeners made in 1936 and shipped to Tokyo. This would explain a odd inscription after the Pall Mall address which Greener does not recognise. Grade Fh 50 but can not find another on Internet , just 12 bores. Shot first squirrel with it weekend and plan a round of clays next to see if all ok
  12. Thanks all for the replies, decided to take the plunge as below
  13. Hobbycraft sell the resin it is called "GEDEO" it is a two part resin and works well but you must mix exact quantities Amazon also have it on offer if you look in Internet , have made several sticks with fishing flys in cow horn handles.

    Brass rod/bar

    I used to work in engineering and got a much as I wanted, still have lots of sizes and plenty of stainless steel but run out of the size for ferrules. Just started to make a priest with stainless end fitted to a bit of hardwood. Will post when completed if it works
  15. As OB says I often get twisted hazel and ash, even blackthorn. Lucky enough to have access to woods with no public access. So get the best bits. I have never needed to remove the bark only on Holly which shrinks so much the bark creases up and looks rough. This also sometimes happens on blackthorn but only on some and I find that running down well with sandpaper till it is smooth and the coating with Danish oil will make them come up a dark red colour which looks quite nice
