  1. I had one of these 20 years ago, served me perfectly well 👌
  2. Morning all, due to an extra lockdown child I'm converting ½ my attached garage into a bedroom for the oldest one. The work will comprise of one stud wall to split the garage, raising the floor 100mm and boarding the existing brick and block walls, 2 of which are internal. Does anyone know what the minimum level of thermal and acoustic insulation the building inspector will want to see, and will they just need the stud wall doing? I've emailed them, but not heard anything back
  3. That's what I thought at first, but never seen it clump like that before 🤷‍♂️
  4. Does anyone recognise this, found growing in a friend's horse paddock under the hedge.
  5. Don't worry, ignore the oldies. He's funny and obviously not meant to be taken seriously, Didn't go 20 was shouted a lot on beaters day 😂
  6. I have this issue too, and it affects me in differing amounts depending on what I'm doing. I have one of the tru glo beads and don't think it makes any real difference. If driven or clay shooting where I can see a target coming and have time to prepare I can struggle, my head knows I should close my left eye and use my right but half way through the process my left eye wants to do its thing and tries to take over resulting in us all getting in a muddle. However if rough or snap shooting I would class my self as a better than average shot purely because I don't have time to over think it and my brain must sort something out, I couldn't tell you what I do but it is just instinct anr reflexes. A friend who has the same problem had a lot of success with a pair of glasses with some tape over the corner of the left eye.
  7. I've been looking everywhere for a Terios/Jimmy/whatever to use as a warmer quieter version of a Mule. Even a rot box mot fail is well over £1k

    These are our temps for the last 30 days, middle column is the over night lows, just 2mm of rain for the whole of April. Some days it's felt like being in a Himalayan mountain village with a hard frost, a howling easterly wind and dust blowing through the farm. Just needed a couple of Buddhist monks wandering about!
  9. It has a knock off safety bar, which is designed to hit your leg on the way past, but still a quick, sharp twist to get that far, and doesn't work if it misses you on the way round. Good bit of kit though and makes life a lot easier!
  10. We have a Stihl one that runs a 6" auger no problem, but it's an arm or leg breaker if it bites a root or stone.
  11. Loved mine, target barrel and new trigger with nylon bushes in the action. Was a rabbit killing machine, just need to look out for bullet lube/wax collecting in the action which then attracts dust and grit which can affect cycling. Put literally 1000s through mine with minimal issues, and it is fun to go full (semi) auto!
  12. Farming Forum is a good place for unbiased reviews, but as Figgy said you would be better off hiring someone with a JCB or 360 for your initial clear up. We have a 19 plate JD loader at work with 4:1 bucket, grain bucket and timber grab and even this is a compromise, never quite being as easy to use as our jcb, and you can't see your bucket once it goes below the bonnet.
  13. Well I'm getting 0%, and have been at work every day. As part of that treating seriously injured trauma patients, taking pressure off the NHS and having temporary 10% pay cut.
  14. I've re joined this year and donated a few times, we need them more than ever.
  15. Been cutting grass almost all winter at work, but my lawn is getting near!
