    New replacement 4x4 pickup

    I thought for a while that the electric technology was not quite there. Then a customer took me out in his P100D as he knew I like cars. To about 80ish mph it makes every supercar i've been in or driven feel slow and painful. The torque, smoothness and traction are incredible. Okay, it runs out of legs at 80-100 but in normal driving conditions they are fantastic. Even against the slowest Tesla on slow mode with cold batteries I suspect your Audi would have no chance. I would jump at the chance to run one as a work van/truck/pickup.

    Wellingtonia felled by idiots!

    I see what you mean now. Is there any point in pushing for a case to be heard at Crown Court then if Magistrates can bosh out a fine of their choosing?

    MOST of them aren't subbies but, yes. Hiring out your self employed services to another company.

    Rescue from a single line

    id say using existing rigging gear to lower a casualty could be a quick and effective method, would need to back up the capstan with a fail safe prussic or the like. probably not best practice could work in the right circumstance id say.

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe stupid question but what's a subby? Self employed people contracting themselves out?

    Rescue from a single line

    When possible , one of the advantages of srt is the possibility of climbing on a lowerable system. With a good enough team this can make for more straight forward rescues unless line or anchor is compromised. I think in many situations rigging gear, in reality could make for very effective rescue. Good three man or bigger teams have more options when it comes to dealing with nasty accidents.

    3mt Log splitter

    I would tend to agree with you ,but I find that once the wood has gone through the processor it looks ok and the advantages of the cone splitter, outweigh the wood looking a bit messy /splintered/frayed. I admit I do get a bit more wastage if some cordwood is particularly splintered. But we are all individuals and so what may be acceptable to one is not acceptable to another.

    Troublesome Ms261

    Right - 120PSI is well below the 150+ I would expect. Check the gauge out on a working saw and see what it pulls. Hones - Damn, been doing it wrong for years, I need to recall hundreds of machines.....bollocks!!! The stones are better in closed transfer cylinders but do the job in my limited experience I have recently had a failure in a similar way, my diagnosis was that the bottom ring had seized and the top ring had stayed loose and continuing to run the saw had put a very slight cavity up the bore where the stuck ring had taken microns off the bore in one specific area. My fix was a new P&C kit and it worked. I could see from the new piston that the rings were not worn in one small area, inspection of this area showed the hone had missed this part of the bore due to this vertical channel of wear.
