  1. Was I the only one expecting to see a gun in there? Very nice by the way👍

    Shome rebellion

    The old boy who tries to pick up that flayling hose😂. But on a serious note, a loose hose under pressure like that could do some proper damage to some poor passer by. I hope they come come down hard on these muppets, but probably not...sadly.
  3. Well, in a way I'm quite glad it's mostly a lottery, it takes the pressure off a bit. I can just go with my gut feeling🤞. Thanks for all your advice👍
  4. Well, I suppose when you are there amongst the pups, it will evident which is the right one for you. I'm looking forward to the challenge. 👍
  5. Its been 3 years since Worzel, our fantastic Springer, passed away. It is now time to look for a new dog. Our Worzel was a very big strapping fella, and as great as he was, he was a fair handful. So this time we will be looking for a slightly smaller dog, and have decided on a Cocker. So my question is, what do you look for when picking a new dog from a litter. Are there any characteristics/traits which should be avoided or sought after? How did you choose yours?

    Fishing Bag SOLD!

    Yes please. PM inbound.
  7. We had this exact same thing in our old house. Unfortunately nothing seems to cure it. I never found what causes it, tho it must be a reaction to a previous wall coating of some sort. We even had the living room walls skimmed over, and some even reappeared through the thin plaster! Our whole downstairs walls were like it. The only thing I found to reduce them was to wait untill the paint was almost dry, and gently go over the affected area very lightly with the roller and the bubbles would press back down. Good luck, I feel your pain!

    Excited much

    Nice! I saw them a little while back... Milton Keynes bowl....1992!
  9. Ah, TY175 was my first proper trials bike, then a TY250, Fantic 245 and then a Beta Zero 260 which I still have from 1991. I fully refurbished it a couple of years ago. Good job on the GasGas, looks nice👍
  10. Thanks for the comments👍 I also have a small table and 2 chairs that I rescued from a skip, I have painted them in the same colour. It amazes me what some people will throw out just because it has a bit if rust on it!
  11. It wasn't as hard to work with as I had feared, I do have some nice splinters though😀. I layed the cast iron back onto a large sheet of paper and took a rubbing (old school) to make a template for the curves, it worked really well.
  12. I bought an rusty old cast iron bench at a car boot sale about 10 years ago, I finally got around to stripping it and painting it about 5 years ago. It's been in the garage ever since. Every spring the wife asks how her bench is coming on, so I thought I'd best pull my finger out and get it finished. I bought some nice oak and finished it with lots of costs of Danish oil (with added UV protection). Unfortunately it's rained pretty much every day since putting it outside, so just waiting for some nice weather to give it a test drive. Good things come to those that wait (or those who nag enough)!
