    Hermes picked up an industrial cool box for me and lost it between Northampton and Coventry after many e mails and offers to cover costs I spat dummy out described the size and markings on item they found it in lemington spa depot delivered two days later which was three weeks after their recorded delivery date on line you pay cheap you get cheap royal mail a bit dearer and gets delivered sometimes only a £ or two dearer no drama

    try using a swade brush or a stiff nail brush or similar on the stippling it will take off the fine hairy fibers that grip your clothing like Velcro you can also flat down with some fine sandpaper you will still have effect just not as sharp

    again sorry for the late reply checkering / stippling will not help with gun fit as is only a cosmetic appearance more information needed you may need stock alterations to get line of sight to shoot where you are looking gun fitting is more important than anything else as shotgun patterns where you are looking a rifle is where you aim with scope or sights

    First Labrador

    john Hallstead senior had a really nice training temperament on video or you could try Walter Harris at Sunstar kennels training weekends at Dorchester he teaches you to handle your dog and gives you an insight into where your dog goes wrong because of you and putting your dog in a position it cannot fail to build confidence in itself and your handling worth the money cracking bloke your dog instincts are to work and its up to you to handle / obedience the most important element in all training stop on the whistle is everything while its backside is on the ground its looking to you for direction cut corners pay the price so a self employed dog scream your guts out and it will not come back until its had enough and / ruined the day for everybody else guns and beaters not happy you may not be invited again even if shooting pigeons an obedient dog is everything the moral of the story is the best dog in the shooting field nobody knows its name

    Makita 4" belt sander

    belt sander to flat after planning / remove saw cuts belts from less than 40 grage down to 150 sanding with the grain will give excellent finish orbital / da are finishing sanders 150/200 grade to 3000 + grade rustic work you can use what you want to gain required finish from adz to disc sanders if oiled or sealed will show up cross sanding scratches terribly above eye level nobody sees cabinet making you can use conventional hand tools hand sand or sand with a belt sander to keep flat ie sand a table top after being glued etc then use cabinet scrapers to get a superior finish on hardwoods rather than an orbital sander have been using belt sanders orbital sanders cabinet scrapers adz etc for nearly 40 years its all about the end product and material green oak sopping wet cannot sand to a high finish but can flat out saw cuts with a belt sander no problem as it dries will warp twist and split terribly if making them look old then whip them with chain chop them with axe / adz and burn /scorch then wire brush to lift grain etc its all about the end result and end finish that's required / character

    Stuffed pheasant breast

    if you can hang the pheasant two weeks or three depending on ambient temp before using the meat the gamy tasty goes and you have a top meal all meat needs to hang after slaughter to breaks the enzyme down to make more tasty turkey makes you sleepy game meats give you a lift pheasant partridge inc salmon / venison lifts you and makes you want to do more 30day old beef looks black but god does it melt in your mouth aged meat is the way forward our ancestors did not have freezers but knew how to preserve meats history can teach the uneducated Tesco's shoppers to seasonal game etc is not the way forward ask your granny how she looked after her kids and do the same home cooking
