  1. Love my mk 1 which I bought new. Fitted a Moderator and a rotary magazine. Only part I have ever had to replace was the filling valve at the end of the cylinder. Have only ever used dry air from a diving cylinder to refill, so no o rings needed as yet. Shoots a dream and will out perform loads of other pcp`s at my club. FB
  2. Other half was away a fortnight ago, so made myself lambs liver and onions with mashed potatoes, peas and carrots. Smashing, reminded me of when I was a child in the 50s and my Nan used to make it in the frying pan and my twin and I would wipe out the thick gravy from the frying pan with fresh cut crusty bread, made by my Grandad. Happy days. She also made the best ever faggots. FB
  3. I have used the 2 part araldite glues to finish rod whippings in the past and also the Hi gloss 2 part lacquer finish on car paintwork, both waterproof and quick setting. FB
  4. They have taken C and D off of my licence doing it on line. Bloody sneaky doing this as trying to get a Dr to certify your ok at this time is like trying to push water up hill with your nose. Asked all sorts of stupid questions like how long I had lived at my address, they already had that info when I updated my address 15 years ago and paid £20.00 for the privilege. Then Passport details and Nat Ins No. Why they don`t tell you this at the information page prior to filling in the online form I don`t know. Bah humbug. FB
  5. Seems like the shooters mother tried to get him mental health services but they were to stretched to help. So very sad all round. No organisations are going to come out of this smelling of roses. FB
  6. Mail on line reports "Gunman kills 5 before turning gun on himself" Small toddler killed and gunman's mother amongst dead. Deepest condolences to all who have lost someone dear to them in this horrific shooting. Another dreadful incident that wont bode well for legitimate firearms holders. FB
  7. Got my letter to renew my licence in the post today. Will fill out the online application tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up as to how quickly they return the new licence. FB.
  8. Has anyone any experience of changing to Smarty from 3. Seems to be fairly easy doing it on line and I can get double the download for a 1/3rd of the price of 3. Is there any downside of going to 3`s no frills network (Smarty) than pursuing 3 with threatening to leave? Smarty is part of 3 and accessible through the My3 accounts page. FB
  9. Sounds a bit like a fuse problem. If a moulded plug check the fuse bases are connecting firmly with the fuse cartridge. If a replacement plug check the wires are screwed firmly into the sides of the electrical pins. It could also be a broken wire in the mains cable, I have had this many times in all sorts of equipment like vacuum cleaners, irons etc More difficult to diagnose. Usually on the phase wire. Could also be worn/broken brushes if your disc cutter has them. Hope this helps FB
  10. Brilliant, thank you. Walker570 and Dave at Kelton. FB
  11. Don't want to hi jack this thread but can any one advise on what paint should be used to clean up the finish as ordinary paint would just burn off? Taa muchly FB
  12. Sadolin or, Sikkins would be my guess. FB
  13. Just home and not even got the tackle out of the car. Didn't expect much from a few hours on a falling tide. Very bright as expected with a slight on shore breeze, small surf big under tow and current flowing strongly from East to West. Air temperature on the cars thermometer was 22.5 Centigrade whilst mobile, heaven's alone knows what it was on the pebbles. Approx 100 rods either side of us and didn't see any thing caught and most rods had their terminal tackle hanging off the rod tips not even in the water. Not a sea gull in sight so it was pretty much a desert. Tried a ledger in close with various baits and also a bubble float using small white bait in case of a wandering bass just beyond the breaker line and into it. A small rib was fishing a couple of hundred yards off shore and didn't see any action there either. Conclusion, no sea gull activity = No fish. At least the particulate filter on the car had a good blow through and a nice pub lunch before coming home. FB PS didn't fish at West Bex fished at the Tropical Gardens area at Abbotsbury, . Even though loads of people there, there was still plenty of parking. Toilets and shop open. Car park ticket machine out of order so no one was paying for parking. Charges run at £1 per hour up to 7 hours, then £8 for 24 hours.
  14. Maybe you could ring "crime stoppers" anonymously, back that up by using a call box, that way no one could ever trace it back to you. FB.
  15. As I said west Bex in all probability on Sunday. Was thinking of packing a lure rod in the hope of a Bass.
